Toyobaby seems to be really aiming high in the publicity stunts sphere.
Juliana Oloyede, who derived the name Toyobaby from the trending Jenifa’s Diaries series, has made more controversial proclamations about her childhood life.
The Nollywood actress revealed in her new book, ‘Rebirth’, that she was molested at the age of 17 and that she was brainwashed by a married teacher of hers, who promised to marry her and also disvirgined her.
Her book read in part, : “The day finally came. He wanted to move the date because he was expecting some money that he wanted to use to pay for a good hotel, but moving it would mean my mum back from church.
“So, he settled for a cheap hotel. I still remember the smell of cigarette that filled the room. I hated the smell of alcohol and cigarette; I still do. We had to wait at the reception for the room to be cleaned and aired.
“So, we went back into the room, and it happened. It was a painful experience for me. I cried at different points and he kept apologising, begging me to keep my voice down lest they think he was raping me. He told me to relax and bear the pain.
“In his words, “do not be a weak woman”. That got at me because I hated feeling or being treated as weak.I asked for a break. He tutored me some more and tried again until he finally got through. It was not anything like he had told me it would be.
“I saw no clouds, I made no sounds, I felt nothing special. It was painful all the way, but it was obvious he was satisfied. When he was done, I checked the bed for blood. I screamed! There was no blood! He told me that not all virgins saw blood.
“I was so confused, but chose to believe him anyway. Soon after, he slept, and I was there crying. Why didn’t I see blood? Even if not all virgins see blood, why should I be on that list? How would I tell the story of losing my virginity without blood? Who would believe me that I was actually a virgin?”
The actress however, received major backlash from the public, who claimed that she could not have been brainwashed at 17 and also came for her for ‘lying’ in the past that she was a virgin.

julesbangz “Is it our virginity?is it our pussy?is it our business?madam….u are making noise o”
fatycious “The story is super irrelevant n unnecessary..some stories should kept to one’s self or very close relative that advice if need instead of telling public that u disobeyed ur parent to follow a man to hotel,d toilet was dirty n u had to clean n alcohol n cigarette thing,no blood, crying..is dis a book? Or tales of moonlight? I had to use my data for dis #painful“
jimmike_1 “Claim virgin today, tomorrow you are a victim of something! She has unbelievably 1m followers, is the fame not enough tho.”
The backlash continues though, but we hope Toyobaby does not take them to heart.
