Shocker: Why Nse Ikpe-Etim Can Never Have A Child Of Her Own

Published

on

It might be a rude shock, but it is true.

Actress, Nse Ikpe-Etim, cannot have children of her own except she adopts a child.

The thespian revealed this much attributing the situation to the fact that she removed her uterus for health reasons.

44-year-old Ikpe-Etim made the disclosure at an event in Lekki tagged ‘Conversation With Nse.’

She said: “I was told I couldn’t have kids. And so, I had to have a hysterectomy (removal of the uterus) to make me have a life again and to stop going through what I was going through. And I’m literarily telling women and men, it really doesn’t matter if you can’t bear children. What really matters is what you would do for the world, for the universe.

“When I was first told by the doctor that I would have to remove my womb to live a normal life, tears dropped and then my husband squeezed my hand,” Ikpe-Etim said.

“I didn’t think there was any point anymore because my society taught me that I have to be a mother to be appreciated and every time I went online, I would have one troll or two say ‘you never born?’

“But I’m thankful that that didn’t break me.”

Signs that the actress might be having issues with having children came to fore in December 2018, when she said that all women should not be expected to become mothers and that expecting otherwise was ignorant.

One of her highest points remains her role in Kunle Afolayan’s ‘Phone Swap’ produced in 2011.

Taiwo Ajai-Lycett Explains How You Can Go From Being A Mother, Dropout, Widowed And Victim Of Rape In A Lifetime

Published

Taiwo Ajai-Lycett

79-year-old actress, Taiwo Ajai-Lycett, has revealed how an individual can go from being a mother to a dropped out, a widow and a rape victim, all in a lifetime.

 

This is how she explained it:

“I have been through the fire, I emerged fortified. I was 15 years old when I had a child. By 16, I was on my own. I knew I was going to get a good education. I was going to be a lawyer.

But I knew that I was on my own. My family disowned me. I married one David Akinduro in 1959 after I relocated to the U.K, but I left him due to domestic violence.

I met Thomas Lycett long after I divorced my first husband. Eventually I married him. We had a blissful marriage. He died when I was 52-years-old. I remember him everyday.

He was the one that told me that I was better off being an actor. In 2006, I was robbed and raped in my house in Egbe. I was tied. I was beaten. I was brutalized. My health was ruined.

I was blindfolded and raped. The man who raped me complained that he couldn’t gain easy entry into me because I wasn’t wet. I told him ‘widows don’t get wet.’

I kept talking to them and asked them repeatedly, ‘Are you doing this to your mother?’ Angrily, they taped my mouth but I remained fearless and prayed all through the attack.

The police came. They expected me to pursue the case. I knew the masterminds. I could have gotten them incarcerated but I simply moved on.

Look at me today, I am over it. See, the mind is a beautiful thing. When you hold on to past hurt, you tie yourself down to grief. You get infected with its poison.

Rather than wallow in grief and self-pity, I picked myself up and sought medical help, ensuring that they hadn’t infected me with any STD.. That same year, the Obasanjo government got me the Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON) national honour.

Few years later, One of them came to prostrate before me, pleading for my forgiveness. I told him to seek forgiveness from God. I told him that I had moved on.”
