I’ve Been Through Hell, Says Annie Idibia
Nigerian actress, Annie Idibia, says she went through hell while growing up.
The wife of Nigeria’s singer, 2baba, said this as she shared a video collage of her pictures on her Instagram page.
She recounted that while she was in Senior Secondary School One (SS1), she didn’t know what it means to be on break time like other students because she was always busy running market errands for her mother.
“Looking at the beautiful young Annie in these pictures is lovely. I am so proud of you. I want to give you a big warm hug. You have been through all sorts of hell from a very young age, with so many responsibilities from so young. That girl never gave up (never will still).”
“From SS 1, she never knew what it felt like to go on ‘break time’ like other kids in school because that was when she sneaks out of school to rush to the market (the very old gateman, he was definitely in his 50s, became her friend), to buy her mother’s pepper soup ingredients that she would have to cook after school and sell in front of their Boys Quarters in Mobil, VI.
“She will wait till her single mother gets off work by 7 pm to take over from her (mom was a cook) those hours before 7 pm were the longest ever because she would have only a few hours left to study and do her homework before bedtime.”
The mother of two added that despite all she went through at the time, she always wore a smile.
She said when it came to her academics, she was a brilliant student especially in mathematics and Physics
She seized the opportunity to thank herself for never giving up, saying, “I want to thank me for never giving up on me. For all the NOs I did not allow to discourage me and lose focus. I want to thank me for being so aggressive with my dreams and what I wanted. I want to thank me. I want to hug you, young Annie”.
