During the latest edition of ‘BlackBox’ with media personality, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the actress revealed that she lived with different relatives after her mother relocated to the UK.

Adesua said when her “living conditions” didn’t go well with her relatives, she moved into a small apartment with her sister where the both struggled for food

She added that the apartment, which is just a room and a parlour, was stuffy because they had no wardrobe to keep their clothes, so they opted to fold them in an empty freezer.

The actress said, “We started off staying with dad’s sister, then dad’s brother, when those living situations didn’t work out, i stayed with my grandpa. When that didn’t work out, we moved to a property in a place called Jeba.

“My sister and I started living alone. That was quite hard because we were very young. There are days when there’d be no food.

“There were so much stuff in the place and it was just a room and a parlour, we used to fold our clothes in an empty freezer because there was no wardrobe.

“We went through our share of tough times, and I think that’s part of the things that have shaped who I am right now.

“I’m grateful for that experience and I wouldn’t want any child to go through that because no child should have to go through it. But that was the situation we found ourself and we made the best of it as much as we could.”

The film star, 34, described her initial experience in London as a “culture shock”, adding that she was bullied.

“I was African, [so the kids there would always tell me that], and they made it seem like something you should be ashamed. They tried to bully me but you can’t bully me.

“I stood up for myself. Bullying was quite a thing at the time. So you hear about lot of bullying stories,” Adesua said.
