September 29, (THEWILL) – Big Brother Naija housemate, Angel, says during her teenage years, her grandmother used to ‘check’ her virginity while she lay down on the bed.
The 21-year-old writer disclosed this on Wednesday while discussing with fellow housemate, Cross, as she talked about her experiences while growing up with her grandma.
Angel said, “There was pressure on me to not get pregnant. So she was scared. I remember she would tell me to lie down in bed to check if I’m a virgin. And that’s stupid because not every woman has a hymen.
“Some women are virgins and they don’t have hymen. I remember one time she made me swear that I was a virgin. I think I was still 16. There was a lot of fear, a lot of anxiety, and a lot of everything.”
Angel also talked to Cross about how distant she was from her parents adding that she thought her mum was her sister until she was seven years old.
Angel said: “When I was in high school, I went years without seeing my mum. The funny thing is I didn’t know my mum was my mum until I was a certain age. I thought my granny was my mum.”
