“What caused me to dislike males for a very long time” – Sandra Okunzuwa shares.

She claims that when she challenged her abuser as an adult, she was stigmatized because she had been sexually molested as a child.

Sandra Okunzuwa, a well-known Nollywood actress, has described a traumatic event that caused her to dislike males for a very long time.

The movie diva recently spoke with The Sun about her horrible experiences with men and how she overcome them.

She claims that when she challenged her abuser as an adult, she was stigmatized because she had been sexually molested as a child.

She claimed that the incident turned her against males for a period, but that she has now recovered and gone on.

“Sexually abused as a kid? Yes. Mental health victim? Yes. In the society we live in, people don’t talk about mental health issues; they expect you to visit your pastor and you will be alright. As an actor, it is not easy. First, you will have to embody the life of different characters and personalities, the good, the bad and the terrible.

Despite what you are going through personally, you have to wear a smile and keep entertaining people because that is what people expect from you. I think there should be a special therapist for entertainers, because it is not easy. Giving out joy to people and lacking where to fill up from. Most people are broken; they’re carrying about baggage from the past, if you don’t talk about it so you can get help, you will keep carrying it about until it destroys you. By sharing your problems with your partner, you can get help.

Lastly, being traumatized isn’t a spiritual issue; it is a mental issue that needs a therapist. I will get married to my perfect partner someday. Before, it (the sexual abuse) kind of made me resent men, but I have healed from it and moved on. I am a lot better now.” She said.
