Nicole Chikwe, wife of Nigerian rapper Naeto C, has spoken out for the first time about being shamed for her looks after she started dating the singer.

Taking to her Instagram page, the model shared a carousel post in which she talked about the criticisms she faced because netizens thought she didn’t look good enough for her husband.

According to her, she was repeatedly trolled on Twitter between 2010 to 2012 over her face and body. She said she was only 22 at the time and it really hurt to be faced with such public criticisms.

She captioned it, “All my ‘Premium Pie’ and ‘Finest in Lagos’ talk has an origin story. This is it. While I am super nervous to share, the urge to finally speak is greater. I love you and thank you “
