Foluke Daramola’s Husband Opens Up On He Feels About Foluke Being Raped!

Nollywood actress, Foluke Daramola and her husband, Kayode Salako, are going strong despite the controversial circumstances in which they were married. Foluke has never hidden the fact that she is a victim of rape, she has even launched a foundation called Passion Against Rape in Africa. Speaking to Saturday Beats, Kayode said:

“I have always told my wife something which I believe is the reality of life. I did not meet my wife as a virgin and when you did not meet her as a virgin, you cannot expect to be the one to deflower her. I am a liberally inclined person who is very realistic. My orientation is western inclined, so things like that do not bother me. Either she is a rape victim or not, what I am going to say is that I did not meet her as a virgin.“The painful aspect and what hurts me the most about the situation is that she was introduced to sex against her own wish. That is one of the things I really hate about the experience. That she is a rape victim does not bother me at all. I am glad it did not cost her life. It bothered her psychologically for a while in life but I did not meet her in such a situation. She had overcome the ordeal before we met and the two of us have been living together in harmony. You would not even know that she is a rape victim if she did not tell you. I am a liberally inclined person and I don’t attach meanings to things the way a typical African man would. That is why my wife and I have been enjoying ourselves.”

Foluke also told Saturday Beats that she wants to be known as the voice of rape victims in Africa…..

“I want to be the voice of the voiceless and Punch is the reason I have a platform like this because it was the first paper to share my experience with the world. After the interview I had with Punch about my rape experience, a lot of people began to call me to ask me what I was thinking to grant such an interview. I also had people who called me to share their experiences with me. In the process, I had a documentary with a France-based organisation and they asked if I had a foundation but I told them I did not have one. It was after the interview that the idea of Passion Against Rape in Africa came to me. That was about two years ago. I decided to be the voice of the voiceless because I know a lot of people do not have the courage to come out and talk about their experiences. I want to be the voice of rape victims all over Africa. That is the aim of my foundation. I feel that as a celebrity who has gone through that ordeal, victims of rape would find it easy to relate with me.”
