Rape is a serious offense and punishable by law in every country. Rape is when a person intentionally penetrates another’s vagina, anus or mouth with a penis, without the other person’s consent.
UNICEF reported in 2015 that one in four girls and one in ten boys in Nigeria had experienced sexual violence before the age of 18. According to a survey by Positive Action for Treatment Access, over 31.4 percent of girls there said that their first sexual encounter had been rape or forced sex of some kind.
Some Nigerians have unfortunately been accused of rape in recent times on the heels of the upsurge of rape in the country after an 18-year-old called Jennifer was allegedly attacked and raped by a gang of five men in Kaduna, a city in northern Nigeria.
An unnamed lady recently accused the Kokomaster of rape shortly after the Nigerian artiste took to social media to seek justice for Tina Ezekwe for being rape and killed later. D’Bam has written solidarity of the deceased:
#NoMeansNo We Need to Raise Our Sons right and Teach them to love and Respect Women . We Need Justice for Our GIRLS…Say NO to Rape, Racism, tribalism. Let us stop living in FEAR and HATE , and start living in LOVE .🙏🙏🙏 ”, the singer had shared on one of his social media page in reaction to the recent killings and rape of three girls in Nigeria.
Actually the lady in question who accused D’Banj was not the one who shared the story on social media; it was done on her behalf by a friend who has access to Instagram, detailing how her friend was raped by the superstar back in 2018 at Atlantic Hotel back in 2018.
Davido’s right-hand man, Peruzzi also got himself in trouble when he tried to voice out his opinion about the trending rape case against the girls only to be slapped by a lady who accused him of raper some time ago.
The accuser, identified as Princess accused Peruzzi of raping her. According to her, Peruzzi made sexual advances at her in 2012.
“In the night, he started touching me without my consent, I tried to tell him that it was wrong and besides he has a girlfriend lying in between. So I left the room and went to sleep in the mini parlor upstairs, I had to leave the room because I was not comfortable anymore.
“Deep asleep, I felt someone trying to unbuckle my pants and then I woke up. And I’m like ‘Peruzzi can’t do that, it is wrong’, that is when we started struggling and he was ‘PRESSING ON MY NECK.’ At that point, struggling was very stressful, you know he tore my underwear and he raped me,” her tweet read.
One Sheila B. Sheila took to social media to disclose how Nigerian artiste Timaya assaulted her sexually. Defending himself, Timaya said whatever happened between them was consensual and not rape. He admitted that he hooked up with the girl in his Atlanta hotel, but says she agreed to the sex. “It was consensual sex, the lady was a blackmailer who wanted to dupe me off $50K.”
The blunt musician was accused by a lady of rape not too long ago. The lady in question said he paid the Nigerian artiste a visit in the company of another friend at his residence when he raped her. Brymo, however, said the lady concocted the story.
The man known for his ‘Egugu Be Careful’ hit song was arrested after being accused of rape by one Miss Olanike Olaiya. According to Olaiya, the sexual misconduct took place at the musician residence in Lagos after visiting him for business advice in 2014.
Obesere however shot back saying: “We both enjoyed and had a nice time together. I have and will never rape a girl in my life,” he maintained in an interview.
