Veteran Nollywood actress Hilda Dokubo has come out to narrate how things turned around for her while she was growing up. Dokubo made this revelation during a ministerial event at the Fresh Oil International Church.
She explained how the death of her father made her poor and how her mother nearly ran mad.
As if these travails were not enough, she stopped going to church and became pregnant at the age of 16 .
Dokubo narrated that: “I was born with a silver spoon but death turned me poverty stricken after my father died when I was just nine. I turned away from God at that point because I felt disappointed that despite how much my father loved and served God, He still died.
“After my dad died, my mother completely lost her mind. If she were in US, am sure she would have been diagnosed as a mental case. You know in Nigeria, we don’t consider people mad until they have started eating from dustbin. I rebelled against God at that point and stopped going to church at the age of nine.”
On how she got pregnant at the age of 16, the beautiful actress disclosed that: “However, I was a very brilliant girl and I got admission into the university at the age of 16. I became rascal and did what girls like that do. I slept with a man and became pregnant. It wasn’t the Holy Spirit that impregnated me. My mom was devastated and disappointed in me because of that. I was angry with her because her God killed my father and we stopped speaking to each other.”
