Gifty Powers, ex-Big Brother Naija housemate, has revealed that she was once married as speculated on social media.
The ex-reality show contestant had denied being married after being evicted from the Big Brother Naija show.
But in an interview with Hip TV, the upcoming actress said the marriage was a dark part of her life.
Gifty said she got married at 19 but noted that the union was not legally bound.
“I will say it right now in here that the marriage issue was kinda real. I was once married and it’s a dark part of my life that I don’t want to ever go back,” she said.
Gifty also advised young women to be adequately prepared before going into marriage.
“First of all, my advice to every young woman out there is that before you go into marriage, you have to be physically, mentally, emotionally and psychologically matured because I was naive,” she added.
“I was 19, I didn’t know what the whole marriage thing was all about. It felt like entering into adulthood.
“The marriage was just traditionally recognised. We didn’t do court wedding, it was not legal. Although we did a white wedding, the bride price was returned. What I experienced, I don’t wish anyone to experience. I passed through a lot.
“People out there judge me because they don’t even know what I’ve been through.”
Gifty Powers was the fourth housemate to be evicted from the reality show.
