Toyosi of Jenifa’s Diary fame Explains Why She Lied About Being A Virgin

Fast-rising Nollywood actress, Juliana Olayode, has owned up to deceiving Nigerians that she was a virgin.


The 22-year-old actress incurred the wrath of Nigerians when she claimed to have lost her virginity to her married teacher at 17.

The raunchy details were contained in her new tell-it-all memoir titled “Rebirth,” released on Thursday.

Unfortunately, the Internet never forgets. The actress, who shot into limelight after starring in Funke Akindele’s hit series, Jenifa’s Dairy, as ‘Toyo baby’ had granted several interviews wherein she claimed to be preserving her virginity until she marries.

Her teeming fans, who adored her stance on sexual purity, were shocked when she contradicted herself in her new book.

The Nollywood actress, however, explained why she lied. According to her, she was led to deny being a virgin when she was taken unawares during a live TV programme.

“People had assumed I was a virgin. I had never said I was but I had never corrected their assumptions either. So, I was still in that fix. Shortly after my confession, Ebony Life TV called me for an interview. I went and for the first time in my several interviews; I was asked point blank if I was a virgin. I tried to evade the question, but my interviewer was not having it.

“She demanded for a yes or no. I did not see the question coming and I lied. I said, “Yes, I am a virgin”. Immediately the interview was over, I hurried to the bathroom in the studio and cried. I felt terrible for lying and told God I was sorry.”





She said because she was ashamed to admit lying in various interviews, she decided to live the lie.

“I felt it was my secret and the whole world need not know
about it. I was upset with myself, however, for answering her. I could have insisted I
could not tell. So, I proposed never to answer such again. Easier said than done, right? Shortly after, I was on another TV interview, Crux Of The Matter, with Elsie.


“I was invited to talk for sexual purity while the other guest spoke against. In the process of the discussion, around the time when it was heated, I was asked out of the blues again if I was a virgin. And before I knew it, I heard myself lying again. I was mad at myself. I was on another TV interview that trended for a while. It was On The Couch, with Lady Ariyike. I talked about sexual purity, but thankfully I was not asked if I was virgin. After that one, I decided to stop interviews altogether. I was tired of lying or having to dread lying if I was asked straight up.”


Mixed reactions have trailed the release of the book. Critics say the actress is simply towing the path of media girl, Toke Makinwa, who also published a similar tell-it-all memoir, On Becoming, in 2016.



In the book, the actress also discusses her struggles, which include hawking on the street, experiencing sexual abuse, how a pastor once tried to abuse her sexuality and how she dropped out of school.

To what end? You could have said you weren't a virgin due to circumstances beyond your control which you didn't want to talk about. Shikena.

This girl is horribly stupid. She's a pretentious snake. What happened to "no comment" or " I don't want to talk about it"? I'm annoyed at this dishonesty and I doubt she'll make sales with this nonsense. One would think she a saint with the way she indirectly castigates non-virgins on her Instagram page. At 22, she's supposed to be smarter than this.

Oh no. How embarrassing. Now this will forever trail her reputation.

Ok, who your news help nah. You couldnt evade the question bcos ur interviewer was not having it..mtcheew. I mean, why carry your personal life to an interview, see one thing I so much admire about Chimamanda, you wiill never hear her say kpim on her personal life, no matter who the interviewer is. I have watched many of her interviews and she knows how to smartly evade questions concerning her personal life, her interviews are strictly on her career and she doesnt cross that boundary. Public figures should learn to tie their mouth when the question comes to their personal life and Stella Di korks is 200% on that.

I hope I didnt write an epistle oo...

Frankly speaking, I can't be bothered what anyone does with their vagina. As long as it doesn't stink when they walk by they can have a field day.

Serial liar. Its no body's business if u are a virgin or not. She should have probably said I don't like to discuss private issues. She is trying to create a niche for herself after falling out with jenifa diary which is a good platform. Now she has tarnished her brand even before she is able to build it

But why lied to the world? Why Toyo baby?

How can I believe that you're saying the truth right now?
As young as she is, she just contradict herself with more lies.

I'm indifferent about Toyo,I wish her well in her career. Moral of the story? It doesn't pay to live a pretentious life.

Who wants to buy book that will be filled with lies. I bet she is not 22 and her real name is not Toyosi

onomebonny said...

Abeg she should just shut up and sit down one place. Jennifer made her relevant, she should just go and make peace with Finke and stop all thses talk talk biko.

Abigail Joseph said...

Lie,liar, linus...The truth is that She started a lie and needed to tell more lies to cover up.
Every person who isn't a virgin has a very valid reason for loosing their virginity.Now people will forget the molestation and hurt she went through and focus on the fact that She lied.

Saying the truth and sticking to it would have earned her more fans and more sale of her book.
How do you convince people that your whole book isn't even a lie?

She made the mistake of lying, she should have dodged that question. She has done the right thing correcting the lie she told. I admire her courage, though she would get several knocks for this but her heart is at peace.

The story then when you left Jenifa was that money got missing and you're the only one who knew about the money. This made you angry and you left. These lies and complaint about earning so little, won't it kinda confirm you know something about the missing money???

I have said it before I don't know why a z list wannabe is writing a book. I didn't even know she was 22. Why is a 22 year old with only Toyo Baby to her credit writing? To what end? What experiences has she had professionally or personally? There will be time to write books but not now. You haven't achieved anything yet.

What's the fuss about virginity ehn? I'm in my late 20's and still a virgin but I don't make noise about it. She should have vehemently refused answering that question during those interviews. You just shot yourself miss Toyo

So there is nobody around this girl to mentor her or tell her that it is too early in her career to start writing a tell all book. So because of one major role in Jenifa's diary she feels she is now a star or what. Little girl better humble yourself and calm down if you want to go far in this profession you are still young and it is too early. No use your hand do yourself o.

Oma maranma said...

Well.. she made mistake by lying and lying again to cover it. But for her to write this book, and revealing the lie she told consciously. Then she realised her mistakes and wants to correct it. And she's strong to do that. Nothing stopped her from not including the virginity part and just go on wuth her stories and maybe later claim she lost it. We won't have known. But I think she corrected her mistake to have peace and she made it open too and apologised about it too.
Girl, you were silly for lying but you're strong for owing up to that lie. That's someone repenting and trying to be honest and worthy of having integrity.

Now the society of course will bash you and judge you and ridicule you and paint you the very devil. I won't say you don't derseve it but I know you ain't a coward for this. And cause you're also a himan who is liable to fall and mess up, wear a thick skin now and know you've at least set your spirit free of lies. It's going to be rocky now but it will be steady later. Take the condemnations, don't try to defend yourself again.. just take it as ypur punishment for lying.

This one too, will pass away.

I don't even get how she thinks she's all that to write this book. I guess she equals having a 1m followers on IG to success

She's going to learn the hard way for starting her career building up lies everywhere.

And she's 22? Lmao
Please let me rest my pretty head jare
Had a busy day.

CHI EXOTIC said...

RR, you're a V?
What a wow!
Girl you're a rare gem oh.

Iphie dearie said...

Oh dear..... The wrath of all the ladies Toyo made uncomfortable by her stance will land on her. She might not live this down in a hurry.
Atleast she's got an active conscience.

Toyo could have still carried on with her chastity stance without being ashamed of admitting shes been sexually active.
Being able to talk against premarital sex is not exclusive to people that have never had sex, Anyone that is celebate can take up such campaign.
This would have saved her this whole drama.

Eminado Onimisi said...

She started the virginity talk on her social media account,even use hashtags like 'virginity rocks','being a virgin does not make you an old school hence the reason for the TV interviews. But Juliana should have firmly dismissed the question or tell them she lost it but celibate, many will still applaud her. The annoying thing is, her defence is still an obvious lie because the internet has the truthful details to prove her defence a lie. The problem with Juliana is that most people fell in love with the 'perfect' Toyo character and she mistakenly decide to be Toyo in real life. I was never a fan of Toyo but kiki(Lota Chuckwu). Toyo, keep calm and act more movies and work on your brand.

Eminado Onimisi said...

She wasn't even raped, she was frolicking with a married man at 17 and they planned the sex. They had to look for a cheap hotel hurriedly before her mother's return from church. What was Juliana thinking including those demeaning details in her book?

Anonymous said...

She has no business writing a book. Does she know the type of people that write autobiographies? She irritates me to no end with her overly righteous and overly pious posts. Very annoying especially as her claim to fame is as an actress on one show!

She needs to go back to school and do a masters if she's run out of ideas of what to do with her life.

zizi said...

Just because the man promised her marriage and she was aware of the man's marital status. So Toyo baby you were ready to be a 2nd wife at that ur age? Or you wanted the man to divorce his wife for you. Hmmmmmm

You are very correct, her role in Jenifa's diary unconsciously made people think she is this innocent babe.

Okwesilieze said...

You're referring to your sisters and your local champion girlfriends forgetting that you attract your kind.

STDs are very much real o. Change your ways. Stop giving them money for sex since you know they are doing if because of poverty. Go out of your way and help them with no strings attached.

Let the change begin with you.
Finally,stop shouting on a blog. Talk to your sisters at home because I'm sure they might not even read this comment here.
