It is no longer news that, in the past few days, the Yoruba movie industry has taken the center stage of all attention following Baba Ijesha’s alleged child molestation and rape case.
The case brought rancour, division, and open altercations among colleagues in the industry. And one actress, Kiitan Bukola was caught in the crossfire over her latest movie currently showing on a YouTube channel called YorubaplusTV.
There was a day I was asked to wait for her in front of a hotel called K Palace Hotel. There is this house opposite the hotel so I waited for her there. There’s this person who is like a brother who stayed in the house. He was the one that raped me. I didn’t tell anybody. For a week I couldn’t even use the restroom very well. I was feeling pain all over my body. That trauma has been in my head for a very long time. The experience and trauma turned me into a drinker. I was never happy around people. For me to be happy I had to drink a lot. I couldn’t even keep a relationship for a very long time as a result of the trauma. I was having serious mood swings. It was the story I used as a movie in”Right Time”. I never told anyone and I decided to make it into a movie,” she narrated.
