Renowned Tanzanian actress and former beauty pageant Wema Sepetu, has shocked the majority of her fans and netizens with her bold opinion on domestic assault. The beauty who is not new to controversies. while hosting singer Amber Lulu on her cook show, confessed to enjoying being beaten up once in a while by her ex-lovers during the relationship.
Acknowledging that “we are not the same”, Wema recounted to her guest how one of her exes vowed never to hit her but ended up breaking his vow. According to her, she oddly enough enjoyed the assault noting that it’s the pacifying bit that thrilled her the most.
“Nakumbuka zamani wakati naanza mapenzi na mwanaume flani, alishanitamkia hajawahi na hatowahi kumpiga mwanamke… Ila kwangu bwana akagonga mwamba na hicho kiapo. Kiukweli nilienjoy sana,” Wema narrated.
“Kupigwa na baby wako kuna raha yake, haswa pale kwenye kubembelezana… Ila sasa sio tupigane kama wezi… kidogo tu sio mbaya… Alafu iwe mara moja sio daily. Sio lazima wote tufanane… Kuna wasio penda kupigwa ila as for me, kushtua shtua one time is very healthy jamani.”
Notably, in 2020, Wema, whose pictures of her bruised face circulated on the internet a few years ago, opened up about her past relationship with bongo superstar Diamond Platnumz claiming that she misses being beaten up by him.
“He would beat me up thoroughly. Ironically, I loved it when he battered me, I just don’t why that was the case. But I remember he would pamper me after assaulting me, and, I think I loved it because he’d give me attention after the battering. Honestly speaking, I miss being beaten up by him, a lot,” she told Ijumaa Wikendi.
“I remember there was a day he saw a suggestive message on my phone. Out of anger, he gave me a hard slap on the cheek. My siblings came to know that I was a victim of domestic abuse. They pleaded with me to leave him, but I told them that they should leave me alone as I was enjoying being beaten up by him.”
