Former 'Jenifa Diary' Star Was Sexually Abused
Juliana Olayode has been reborn.
The former star of ‘Jenifa’s Diary’ will be sharing her experience on sexual abuse and street Hawking in New Book.
The actress who played Toyosi, or ‘Toyo Baby’ as Jenifa calls her in the series, made the announcement on Instagram.
She said the book will discuss her struggles – hawking on the street, experiencing sexual abuse and dropping out of school.
She posted a photo of the book cover titled ‘Rebirth: From Grass To Grace’
Juliana Olayode departed Jenifa’s Diaries in May 2016 following allegations of poor remuneration by content creator and show star Funke Akindele-Bello.
FINALLY NAKED AND NOT ASHAMED! Yes! I am finally naked, but unashamed. You have been asking me what #rebirth is. Now, you know! I have been counting down, for months, to the release of my book, Rebirth! I fought the idea when it was suggested; I did not want to spill my beans for the world to read. Social media celebrity attacks are vicious enough already, why add more fuel to the fire? I eventually gave in though. Why? Because I want you to know me. I want you to know I am just like you. I failed, struggled, and faltered like you, but in the end, my story changed in untold ways. I shared very personal details; hawking on the streets, suffering sexual abuses, dropping out of school, failing at auditions and more. I cried a lot while writing this book. I also smiled and laughed. I am sure you would tell me you did the same after reading the book. It is my utmost desire that reading Rebirth would be a major turning point in your life. If Juliana Olayode, once a beggar on the streets, could become the celebrated figure she is today, across the world, then you have no excuse to settle for anything short of GREATNESS! The book is full of surprising revelations. I promise it would be a worthwhile read. Please, go to www.olayodejuliana.com/rebirth to see purchase details.
