Nollywood Actress, Toyin Abraham, has discussed her past, and has opened up on how she mishandled hard medications like pot and codeine.
The on-screen character made the exposure at the 2017 version of Success Story Africa, held at the TLC
Auditorium, Lagos, on Sunday.
You have to stop negative behavior patterns. I was engaged with a considerable measure of indecencies and
it turned out to be more regrettable a year ago,” she said at the occasion.
“I did drugs and I am not ashamed to say it because it’s now a thing of the past. They say codeine makes you high; I took a lot. I smoked a lot and I didn’t even know I looked horrible, because I was so skinny.
“If you came to my house last year, you would meet a lot of people and you wont want to leave because we smoked, gossiped about people and what have you.”
The actress also revealed that she once hawked plantain chips to help feed her family.
She said growing up was not easy for her because her family was not financially buoyant, although things worked out for them because they worked hard and were “spiritually buoyant”.
