Award-winning gospel performer Celestine Donkor has spoken about her time spent in a compound house and being kept in the bathroom for two hours.
Celestine Donkor recalled her time in Abeka, where she once shared a compound house with roughly twelve (12) other tenants. She revealed that she shared the home with her family and 14 other siblings.
She claims that one sweltering afternoon, a neighbor kept her for two hours in a compound home bathroom, and she nearly passed out.
Celestine Donkor shared her story during the edition of “Grace to Grace” edition of ‘just Being Us” with MzGee on Akwaaba Magic
“There were very mean adults in that compound house, I remember, one parent, the father of one of the tenants locking me in the toilet because you know we have to have our turn, the person said I had stayed there for too long and it not like today’s toilet,” the Agbebolo singer disclosed.
“The guy locked me in there one hot afternoon and someone else came two hours later to open the door. When I came out I was almost fainting, I was sweating,” Celestine Donkor noted.
The gospel singer admitted that this incident made her decide not to bring up her three kids in a complex.
“I want to protect my kids from wicked people like that, so the environment is very important to me. It was one of the things I looked out for when I decided to marry. I didn’t want a compound house, because it was one of the requirements. I wanted my kids to grow and be nurtured in love,” she added.
