CELEBRITY GIST: Veteran Nollywood Actress Hilda Dokubo, one of the actresses who is no more active in the industry, has opened up on how she lost her dad at the tender age of 9 and got pregnant at 16 years of age.
The emotional actress was in Lagos few weeks ago where she ministered as a pastor at the Fresh Oil International Church. She revealed some part of her past that was not known to many of her fans.
These were her words:
“I was born with a silver spoon but death turned me poverty stricken after my father died when i was just nine. I turned away from God at that point because i felt disappointed that despite how much my father loved and served God, He still died.” – Hilda Dokubo
Hilda Dokubo went further to say:
“After my dad died, my mother completely lost her mind. If she were in U.S, am sure she would have been diagnosed as a mental case. You know in Nigeria, we don’t consider people mad until they have started eating from dustbin. I rebelled against God at that point and stopped going to church at the age of nine.”

She also went on to reveal how she got pregnant at 16. In her own words:
“However, i was a very brilliant girl and i got admission into the university at the age of 16. I became rascal and did what girls like that do. I slept with a man and i became pregnant. It wasn’t the Holy Spirit that impregnated me. My mom was devastated and disappointed in me because of that. I was angry with her because her God killed my father and we stopped speaking to each other.”
