The allegations of rape and sexual assault by male celebrities seem not to be unending as Uti Nwachukwu has joined the list of celebrities who are accused of rape.

A lady named Kambili Korie on Twitter has in a series of tweets shared her experience with former Big Brother Africa winner, Uti Nwachukwu, three years back.

In the tweet, the lady accused the now TV presenter of raping her in the year 2017. She went on to allege that he's's bisexual and treats males better even though he's's into females more.

The tweet read: "I said to myself, "NOW IS THE TIME." I have lived in torment and self-blame these past three years. It was five minutes for UTI NWACHUKWU, but until justice is served, it'll be a lifetime for me.

As of 2017, Uti and I were a casual friend. I was an apprentice in a men's cloth shop then, and that was where we met. I knew from day one that Uti was very hot-tempered and should never go close to sharp objects when angered.

What I didn't know was that he was capable of sexual harassment and rape. The first time he saw me, he told me I looked good, and he had a soft spot for melanin skin girls. I blushed and had to tell everyone that I got a compliment from a "star."

He had a girl back then, Angela. She was pretty and melanin too. He came around with her most times and my co-workers, and I really loved her cos she was nice. Such that when Uti made his first advance at me, I waved him off.

Uti asked if we can be friends, I agreed. Who wouldn’t want to be friends with a star? We hang out a few times, and I felt he was fun to be with. He even promised to connect me to a popular modelling agency.

The first time I went out with Uti, I told him we were just gonna be friends. I didn’t want any problem with his girl because she liked me a lot and we were on the verge of becoming friends. I wasn’t a virgin then.

But I had my reservations. He tried convincing me to visit him, but I told him” I don’t want your girl to break my head”. The typical female slang then. He then asked to come to my house. I was sharing an apartment with one of my female friends.

We were actually comfortable, but then I felt a little insecure about the apartment. I felt someone like Uti should be welcomed in a glamorous apartment. I tried to wave the idea off and told him we should just keep hanging out, but he was insistent, so I gave in.

He finally came around, and everything went fine. We talked, we laughed, and that was it. We got closer after that day. When I realized I was beginning to develop feelings for Uti, I had to give him a little space.

He kept coming close; I kept keeping my distance. One fateful day, he came around without letting me know. My roommate wasn’t home then. I was a bit angry with him for the surprise visit, but I didn’t consider it a big deal.

He made advances at me. Told me I was the prettiest girl he knew and that he was obsessed with me. I told him we could talk this out. He fled up. In his words “I always get what I want”. And that was when he forced himself on me.

When I told my roommate about it, she didn’t believe it. I told one of my coworkers, he never believed. That was when I decided I won’t mention it again. Uti went ahead to tell the guy I was dating, that I have been trying to seduce him.

I’ve been broken since then. He made me see all men as beasts. Worse more, I couldn’t speak out because nobody will believe me anyway. I see him smile on tv shows like he is an angel. He is none other but @SirUTI". The tweet by the lady has caused lots of stir online recently.
