Gifty Powers the former Big Brother Naija housemate finally confirmed in an interview with HipTV that she was once married as speculated on social media.
She had earlier denied being married before now, after being evicted from the Big Brother Naija show.
She said that the marriage was a dark part of her life after getting married at 19 but noted that the union was not legally bound and the bride price paid by her ex husband has been returned.
“I was 19. I didn’t know what the whole marriage thing was all about. It felt entering into adulthood overnight. The marriage was just traditionally recognized. It wasn’t legal although we did the traditional and white wedding. She said
There was no court wedding. The bride price was returned. What I experienced.I don’t wish for you to experience it because I passed through a lot and people out there judge me because they don’t even know what I have been through.”
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
Gifty Powers was the fourth housemate to be evicted from the reality show.
