In 2019, Nigerian musician Timi Dakolo and his wife, Busola alleged that popular pastor, Abiodun Fatoyinbo sexually assaulted the singer’s wife when she was much younger.
Timi Dakolo, has revealed that he and his wife, Busola, informed their kids about her rape ordeal when she spoke out about it in June 2019.
Speaking during an interview with media personality, Toke Makinwa, Dakolo said;
“Yes, we informed our kids. I think I raised my kids differently.
Children love validation.
My kids can talk to me and express themselves very well.
I had to make them know that their mother is a superhero.
I explained that it was a painful experience that happened when their mum was very young.”
Timi Dakolo continued;
“They understood even though they might not know the gravity of what it was.
They understood that something was happening.
So, anytime they go to her, they give her a hug.”
The latter part of the session reads;
“When you tell someone that, ‘I’ve got you’, be true about it.
Oftentimes, we associate being a man with muscle, biceps and strength.
The pain that one feels that is not physical is the real pain.
When one tells one’s partner, ‘for better, for worse, most people think it is just ‘for the better because one cannot quantify the worse.
It does not announce itself.
When one says those words, one has to be sure. Don’t say it because everyone is saying it.
Many times, she had wanted to tell me certain things, but I had waved her off.
I had known about the issue and telling me was not easy for her.”
