Actress Hilda Dokubo has revealed that she was wayward while growing up and got pregnant at the age of 16.
Hilda made this known recently while ministering at Fresh Oil Ministry International Church, Idimu, Lagos State.
The first of six children, the thespian recalled how she lost her father to the cold hand of death at the age of 9 and she became unruly thereafter.
She said, “I was a very brilliant girl, and I got admission into the university at the age of 16. I became rascally 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 also angry with her because ‘her God’ killed my father, and we stopped speaking to each other.”
The Rivers State-born actress also said she made her first million at the age of 17, “One day, a man came to me and said he needed a barge. I didn’t know what it was, and he told me it was used to store oil. I then recalled that I had once seen a barge in the compound opposite ours. I went to the neighbour and told him I needed the barge. He asked me what I needed it for, but I told him not to worry. I told them to put the barge in front of my mother’s house. At that point, the man who told me he needed the barge came back, and dropped sacks of money containing N2m with my mom because I was in school at that time. Two weeks later, he returned with N500,000, and I was dumbfounded. Before then, I had never seen N100,000 together, but there I was as a millionaire at 17.”
