Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has revealed that her father subjected her to virginity test.
Her comments come amid outrage caused by US rapper T.I. who said that he forces his 18-year-old daughter, Deyjah Harris, to undergo an annual virginity test at the gynaecologist.
T.I. began taking Deyjah to “check her hymen” after her 16th birthday.
In reaction, the 34-year-old said she did not see anything wrong in checking one’s daughter’s virginity status.
“I don’t see anything wrong in checking if your daughter is still a virgin. I remember my dad taking me to see different doctors, just to be sure.
He stopped after three times. I hated him then a bit. But he is just a father trying to protect his stubborn daughter,” she wrote.
Responding to a question by a Twitter user, Halima added that her father began checking her virginity status at age 14.
Halima Abubakar, who recently bought an Escalade, began her acting career in 2001 with a minor role in the movie Rejected . Her first lead role was in Gangster Paradise.
She has starred in movies such as Slip of Fate, Secret Shadows, Area Mama and Men in Love.
