Actress Benedicta Gafah has taken to her Instagram page to share an emotional message as she finally breaks her silence on rumours that her ex-lover brutally beat and sacked her from their house.
The actress has been quiet since this issue came out 4 years ago but has finally voiced out to explain the pain she went through and how she was abused by the man she thought she could spend her life with.
She decided to tell her side of the story after TV and radio presenter Afia Schwarzenegger put up a graphic picture of her on Instagram telling the world what happened to her after the severe beatings she received.
The photo which was earlier shared by controversial Tv personality, Afia Schwarzenegger with the caption ‘when it is coming.. #benedictagaffah on political police tomorrow… I also want to hear the gist’ could be seen as a move to get her on her talk show but that pushed Gafah to address the issue to her followers.
The post sighted on actress Benedicta Gafah’s page made it clear that the man did not want to accept the fact that she wanted to walk out of their relationship after she, Gafah found out that he was a married man.
Benedicta Gafah in the post wrote to address Afia Schwarzenegger wrote “This is the only time I will address this situation and I won’t go into detail! My dear @queenafiaschwarzenegger , regardless of everything that has transpired between me and you, I love you as a strong woman that doesn’t conform to society and men! Moreso because I have see (sic) you stand up to men that want to belittle and abuse women!
I was abused by a man who was in denial that I left him because I found out that he was married and I refused to continue the relationship we were in, after his wife called me to narrate everything to me. When the man that sent you the picture of my brutally beaten face, my wish was that you ask him What kind of man take joy and pleasure for doing such a heinous act and then send to people?
Why does he want me to take the case out of court by reaching out to soo many respectable people? Why is he offering me things to end this matter in court? I will let the laws of the country take care of the rest!! I know there are lots of victims like me being abused emotionally and physically every single day but are scared to speak out just because of what society will say.
There’s this negative stigma to people in the entertainment industry especially women. We are perceived to be evil and money hungry but deep down lots of us have hearts of gold.
There are thousands of ladies being abused daily. This is a PROBLEM! I’m not ashamed of this picture at all. This picture is a reflection of our world today and the plight women go through every day.
I went through this 4 years ago and by the Lords grace, look at me now. I have favor with the Lord and living my best life!!!,”
