Blessing Okoro popularly known as Blessing CEO, who is known for her relationship advise has opened up on how she broke the internet when she revealed how she was beaten on her wedding.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, Blessing stated that the first time she broke the internet wasn’t when she was caught claiming someone’s house as hers, rather it was when she spilt on how she was beaten on her wedding day and yet went ahead with the marriage.
According to her, she was beaten a day before the wedding, and also at the altar, yet she ignorantly went ahead to tie the knot with him.
“The first time I broke the internet was when I came out and told people how I was beaten on my wedding day. They beat me a day to the wedding and they beat me at the altar and I still married him. I had called people now and this is not just a story, he beat me in front of my Chief bridesmaid, and they’re still there.
When I tell these stories and people say it’s a lie, she’ll just come and be laughing because he didn’t beat me privately, he beat me in front of the bridal train. What happened? Because I did not pack plates”.
This isn’t the first time Blessing CEO has spoken out on domestic violence.
Blessing CEO had recounted her experience living with a violent man triggered by the death of gospel singer Osinachi Nwachukwu who allegedly died out of domestic violence.
