Ex-BBA star Beverly Osu had a little chat with Punch and made the following surprising statements:
I grew up in Surulere, Lagos.Â But I grew up like a boy! I am the last child and only girl in the family.Â Â I did not have toys and I did not know any Barbie story, all I knew was Voltron, a cartoon. I did not grow up with both parents.Â My father is a very simple man and he is somebody who can accept your mistakes.Â He does not spank his kids.Â Meanwhile, my mother is very strict. I could not even play outside as a young child. I had to ride my bicycle inside the sitting room.Â I attended Daughters of Divine Love Convent, Enugu State.Â I thought I would be a reverend sister but I abandoned the vision when I dropped out in my fifth year. I finished my secondary education in a secular institution before moving to Babcock University.Â I could not finish from Babcock because I had some personal issues. Again, I dropped and enrolled at the National Open University.
My convent experienceÂ
It affected me in a very spiritual way. In as much as I know worldly things, I still fear God and have faith in Him.Â The reason why I wanted to become a nun was because I was raised in a Catholic home.Â I just felt it was the best thing for me to do at that time. I used to see myself as a messenger of God.Â Even though I did not become a nun, I still remain faithful to God. Part of my dreams is to establish a church and do a lot of charity work.
