Former BBNaija housemate, Beatrice Nwaji has opened up about her personal life before her fame.
The reality star revealed she was caged by her parents for 19-years.
According to her, after her emancipation from her parents, she fell into the wrong hands by dating a controlling man who also caged her.
In an interview with Sunday Scoop, she said: “I am grateful for everything. I literally ‘started’ my life as a young girl at the age of 27 and in two years, a lot has changed. From being a caged baby in my parents’ house till I was 19, to being controlled and caged by my ex from the age of 20 to 27. I am so sure that if I had my wasted years back, a lot of growth would have happened. But, a blessed child is blessed, irrespective of when the blessings start coming. I am grateful to God for everything.”
Advising ladies in toxic relationships, she said, “I feel the need to tell my story through a movie. Perhaps, it will help a lot of women. I can remember I left my ex with just N50,000 (to my name) and booked a flight to Lagos with N25,000. I feel that the first step to success is to move far away from the negativity that reminds one of failure. I just told myself that (in the worst-case scenario), I would sleep under the bridge and start selling sachet water business. But, the night before I left Port Harcourt, I called my mum and in tears, we both prayed and she blessed me. When I got to Lagos, God did a lot of wonders (in my life) and He is still doing it. Many women decide to stay (in abusive relationships) because of money, forgetting that money cannot bring them back to life if they die.”
