Former ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ star, Toyo Baby talks sexual abuse, torment during her childhood

  Nollywood actress, Juliana Olayede has revealed that she was sexually abused as a young girl. The actress, known for her role as Toyo Baby in Jenifa's Diary, has also made her debut as an author with a book titled The Rebirth. Her book chronicles her struggles as a girl child among other aspects of her life. In a lengthy Instagram post, she wrote: I am finally naked, but unashamed, you have been asking me what rebirth is, Now you know, I have been counting down for months. I fought the Idea when it was suggested, I did not want to spill my beans for the world to read. Social Media celebrity attacks are vicious enough already, why add more fuel to the fire? I shared very personal details, hawking on the streets, suffering sexual abuses, dropping out of school, failing at auditions and more. Toyo Baby also revealed she was once a beggar, saying, 'I cried a lot while writing this. I also smiled and laughed, it is my utmost desire that reading rebirth would be a major turning point in your life. 'If Juliana Olayede, once a beggar on the streets, could become the celebrated figure she is today, you have no excuse to settle for anything short of greatness.'
