In an Instagram post, Lawal said she also agreed because her ex-lover made a lot of effort to win her trust. The actress claimed the leaked sex tape was one of her two intimate moments last year.
“That I agreed to because he started recording after the fact, he doesn’t live in Nigeria; he put in a lot of work winning my trust over the years, and I mean a lot. So much so, we were already working towards a house, marriage, and all,” she stated.
“One thing I can tell you for a fact, however, is that things are never what they seem to be. I only had xxx twice last year; one of those times is the video,” she said.
Last month, Lawal faced backlash after her sex tape was released on social media. The actress accused her ex-fiance of leaking the three-part sex video and threatened to take legal action for breach of her privacy.
Consequently, several Nigerians accused her of leaking the sex tape herself, while others alleged it was a blackmail.
However, Lawal, in her Instagram post, berated Nigerians who alleged she shared the tape.
“Until a lioness tells her story, every hunter will continue to be a hero. People always take quiet, non-problematic people as fools. However, I think it is time for me to start talking,” she stated.
The actress explained that she called off her relationship with him over communication issues, just as she recalled her sacrifices.
“That is why I had to break up with him last year when I started having communication challenges with him because I put my entire life on pause with any man I am dating.
“I have not made so many sacrifices by turning down so many dating offers, sleeping alone 90% of my entire adult life, choosing to be alone to have an ugly video that happened when I was ill hanging over my head,” she stated.
