    I cannot pretend to ever know what it means to be molested and I can’t claim to ever truly understand the pain that victims of sexual assault go through but what I do know is that keeping quiet will never stop the problem. Ololade and anyone else going through this, please speak up and protect the next person. Change does not come by keeping quiet. Change doesn’t come by being afraid of what people will say. If someone else had spoken up when they had gotten molested, maybe Ololade would not have been a victim today. Please speak up sisters! Protect our younger ones from suffering the same fate.

      I agree with you. I’m a victim myself and I spoke up too late. Nigerian’s need to stop the habit of blaming the victim first. Maybe then, more people will start to speak up.

      Well…I dunno that its that simple and straight forward…..I’ve been a survivor of sexual abuse as a child by a relative and rape as an adult woman by a Nigerian Celebrity who I will not mention and have chosen not to speak out against….I will say this, When someone goes through such a HORRIBLE ordeal, the first thing first is to understand what THEY NEED. And some people need to speak out against the attacker immediately and get healing that way, some people feel too fragile to do so. Eitherways, everyone has a path to healing…People don’t have to understand it, but if you really want to empower someone who has been thru such an experience you do that by supporting the decisions they take regardless of your opinions and not everyone is ready to speak out aagainst the attacker, if they arent ready, that would do more damage than good….

      Some people eventually get there to the point of speaking out, some are there as soon as the attack happens……Everyone’s path is different key to being there for people in these situations is to support them on what decision they decide to take

    I have been a victim and its really not easy to speak up !
    Our judicial system and society doesn’t even make it easy
    The last time it happened …i was so scared and then i thought…if i report him…what if he has friends that he could send to harm me ? what if no one believes me ?
    My friend i told said…” han han…was he naked already…maybe that was not his intention ? you think too far ??
    HUH????
    A guy that crawls up to my bed in the night saying “lets chill please i need us to chill together”….(long story…a house guest that my parents allowed to stay over for 2 nights ..trusted fam.friend and all and i was alone )
    I just did not bother reporting to anyone except my elder sister and was just lucky i fled the house when i did by 4 AM!!!!

    ITS NOT EASY and i hope the system allows for cases to be reported and taken serious and not in the manner the police would even address it

      Great segment and excellent arguments on both sides. I have been there so i understand the voicelessness of this violation. I can now easily speak about it but back then not at all. thanks for this important segment. And all of your talents are amazing!
