ICYM: Andre Blaze Henshaw sexually assaulted me Two years ago. The BBC (unwittingly) interviewed both of us for a recent programme about evolving masculinity and it’s impacts. I informed BBC about the assault and asked them to delete/edit the programme. They refused, the BBC has assured me that they are very sorry about the distress they unwittingly caused, also that they will not be doing anything to mitigate it. Andre Blaxe Henshaw, as far As I know, continues to deny that he assaulted me despite there been witnesses of the assault. It is hypocritical and callous to expect survivors of sexual violence to navigate their trauma AND do the work to eliminate sexual violence alone and unsupported. As long as powerful people and institutions do nothing in the face of allegations, abuse will continue with impurity. I am disappointed but not surprised by the BBC’s action, in much the same way that I expect to be disappointed but not surprised by the responses I will receive to my words. But I am not afraid, I am not alone, I am certainly not powerless. #MeToo indeed. May 30th will make it two years to the day Andre assaulted me. In the words of @sisiogelagos. #ItsTime I’ve never believed that the key to ending sexual violence is the survivors speaking out,the key is survivors being believed and abuser being made accountable. So I have no illusions about a sea change coming out of my going public. But speaking out does many things that are important ,even if it doesn’t end sexual violence. And #ItsTime for me to do it. It’s ‘been’ time. While y’all are here that raging misogynist prettymike raped me near club G when I was 16 years old, and I’m willing to bet every single naira I will ever earn that he doesn’t even remember. But that’s a story for another day. I’m off to watch Beychella ✌
