Toyin Abraham, the renowned Nollywood actress, has revealed that she was exposed to drugs following the breakdown of her marriage to actor Adeniyi Johnson. During a recent interview with BBC News Yoruba, Toyin shared her experience, stating that a female friend introduced her to drugs with the promise that they would help her escape from her problems and alleviate the pain of her sadness.

This candid revelation sheds light on a challenging period in her life when she turned to substances as a coping mechanism.

“I have done some certain things that are not really my fault because I came from a Christian home.

“When the problems started, some of my friends introduced me to drugs in such a way that I kept asking myself what led me to this.

“I didn’t plan for a broken marriage. But when it happened, I was emotionally carried away.

“Those things were empowering my negative energy. Sometimes even when I do some positive things it would just end being negative. So I had to stop.

“Then I sought help. And I also changed some friends and people around me. I tried to be positive and I had to deal with depression and drugs.”
