Nigerian Talented designer poured out her painful emotions during as she was interviewed.

Toyin Lawani's Uncle must have watched the video and would be full of regrets.

Celebrity fashion designer and socialite, Toyin Lawani has revealed that she was taken advantage of by her own uncle at 13 and she got pregnant.

The fashion icon disclosed this during her interview with Chude Jidenowo.

She explained that she was bullied by her uncle not to inform anyone, but she summoned courage to tell her aunt who took her to the hospital to abort the pregnancy that resulted from the incest 

“I got r3ped by my uncle when I was 15 years and I had to go to my grandmother’s place in Ibadan. I didn’t tell my mother, but had to tell one of my aunties.

“They had to take me to a hospital in Ibadan, the pregnancy was about five months already because I didn’t tell anyone and it was so hard for me.

“My mum was so disappointed and hurt. She could not take it,” Lawani said.

She further revealed that her experience made her very protective of her children, as people can’t be trusted.

“The person was so close to my family which is why I am so strict with my kids. I don’t trust anyone, even your brothers, sisters, anybody can betray you.

“Nobody can come close to my children anyhow, you can’t trust anyone, even your brothers and sisters.

“I lost my innocence at a very young age and I hated my mum so much for it because she wasn’t there for me; she was always at work. It traumatised me but now I understand,” she said.
