Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar has agreed with American rapper T. I. who said he often check the hymen of his 18 years old daughter once in every year.
Contrary to the knocks the rapper has been getting for making such a thing public, Halima said that she does not see ‘anything wrong in checking’ to be sure whether one daughter is still a virgin or not.
The 34 years old actress who said this in a tweet she shared today claimed that her father used to take her to different doctors just to be sure that she was still a virgin.
She said though her father stopped after doing that thrice, she hated him until when she grew up to realise that he was just a father trying to protect his daughter.
A follower then asked her when her father stopped taking her to doctors to check her hymen, she responded that she was 14 at the time.
“I speak my truth and that’s it. Protect your children period”, she replied to a follower who called women “scum” because of her stance on the matter.
While @SegeJohnson held a contrary opinion saying that such a measure on a daughter is over the top. “I won’t do that to my daughter. Communication, trust and confidence in her is the key not controlling or checking…”, he added.
In October 2018, Halima became a talking point in the media when she revealed that she was still a virgin. “Audio virgin”, her Twitter follower tweeted today. She couldn’t hold it together as she replied by calling the follower “uneducated”.
