Famous Nollywood actress Moyo Lawal has finally reacted to the leaked viral sex tape involving her and her “alleged” ex-lover.
A sex tape of Nollywood actress Moyo Lawal was leaked online on Saturday, much to the chagrin of her fans. Many fans took to different platforms to express their opinions.
The video captured the actress, who won the “Newcomer of the Year” award at the Best of Nollywood Awards in 2012, having sex with an unidentified man while the act was being filmed.
On Sunday, Moyo, through a statement posted on his official Instagram page, revealed who posted the video and that it was done without his knowledge.
She said: “A private video of mine from a while ago was inappropriately shared without my consent, violating my privacy and trust.”
“I want to emphasize that this video made with my ex who I was going to marry at the time was never intended for public consumption, and its unauthorized distribution is a violation of my boundaries. “
The actress, who has a degree in creative arts, went further and threatened legal action against the perpetrators, saying: “However, this criminal violation of privacy will be dealt with by legal action.”
She said the incident affected her mainly because she tried to maintain a strict approach to her sexuality.
The actress noted that she went so far as to remain celibate for a few years, refusing to go on frequent dates and choosing to be alone most of the time.
“However, I am determined not to let this unfortunate incident break my spirit.” She added.
Moyo also thanked those who showed their support and understanding by reaching out to her amidst the drama and challenges the video caused her.
She recognized that his kindness and goodwill meant the world to her.
After the leaked video surfaced online, followed by criticism and viral trends about the video, a previous video of the actress also surfaced on platform online was anything related to sex.
She said: “I have made many sacrifices and said no to so many things. “People know what I’m like when it comes to sex, so the last thing anyone could use to bring me down is sex.”
In the video, the actress also stated that despite the impression some people had of her, she was not as ‘bad’ as they thought.
“Whatever I’ve done, I haven’t been as bad as a normal girl,” she added.
In a surprising twist on Saturday, an X account, @moyolawaloficialsupposedly belonging to the actress on Saturday, denied the leaked video and that it was associated with the one appearing in it.
Along with the leaked video, a publication by the actress also went viral.
In post X, he said that the viral video was not authentic and that people should stop spreading it.
