Nollywood veteran, Ada Ameh, says she is one of a few teen mums that lived to tell the story of how they were lured into the world of sex at an early age as a result of peer pressure.

The actress recounted her heartwrenching odyssey in a recent interview with media personality, Chude Jideonwo.

During the chat, the buxom actress opened up on her personal life and career.

When asked about the cause of her early pregnancy, she said, “It wasn’t my parents. I was influenced by my peers. They introduced me to ‘early sex’. One thing led to another and I got pregnant.

“I got pregnant in March and I had my baby in December same year. That means I got pregnant when I was 13+.

“The most beautiful part is that, on my 15th birthday, my baby was barely five months old. I was marched out of the Barracks.”

Ameh stated that during that period, she took to alcoholism because she felt she had got her independence already.

Despite her early motherhood, the actress, in October 2020, lost her daughter, Aladi Godgift, who was over 30 years old.

Aladi had died after an unsuccessful surgery in Abuja and a few weeks ago, the bereaved mother had visited her daughter’s grave site to mark her one year remembrance.

“One thing that has not been easy for me was the fact that I allowed my daughter to leave for Abuja. The day I made that mistake was the day I left her to leave the house. I’ve lived with that guilt all my life.” Ameh disclosed in the recent interview.
