“How My Cousin Married My Boyfriend” – Nollywood Actress Opens Up On The Worst Betrayal Of Her Life

Nollywood actress, Mina Horsefall recently opens up on what she describes as the worst betrayal of her life.

In an interview with Encomium magazine this week, she talks about how her boyfriend (now ex) who she dated for two years, and her cousin, utterly betrayed her and broke her heart.

She reveals that she still has not gotten over the betrayal and that she does not think she will ever forgive both of them.


Hear her:

“My first cousin and my ex betrayed me. The whole story is complicated. She dated my boyfriend and married him. I had no idea what was going on until they were about to get married because she was pregnant for him. I did not introduce him to her. She knew him. He was my Uncle’s best man and we were in the bridal train. He met us together and went after me. We had a relationship for some years, two years at a stretch, then it became off and on and all those times she knew. She was even engaged to someone else at the time. Unknown to me she ‘worked’ her NYSC down to Lagos to have my boyfriend. She was living with him and it didn’t make any sense to me. Until later on, I found out they were getting married. What pained me most and the worst part of it was when I got to hear about it and confronted him, he said he can never do anything with my sister and there you are getting her pregnant and marrying her. It got all messed up. This happened in September 2012. I haven’t forgiven them. I don’t think I ever will”

What do you think of her story? Have you ever experience such betrayal or know anyone else who has? Do you have any advice for her?

  1. that is life for you, but my candid advice for you is to leave them for God to judge them. you must forgive so that your prayers can be answer, heaven is more important than any disappointment you may experience in this world, anybody with unforgiven spirit can not get there. so ask God to help you and locate you with your own bone and flesh. that man is not met for you. god bless you.

  2. One thing is certain that will of God will alway be done in our life. just say to yourself we are meant to be together

  3. Forgiveness is like setting someone free from prison only to realise u were the one that has been in that prison.
    Forgive them and move on. Its not in ur hands to determine when u will forget, that one is left to ur reflex arc.

  4. my sister such is life, thank God he haven’t got u pregnant as well. Pls try 2 forgive them because of christ even though is painful. May God give u ur own husband.

  5. My dear, d guy didnt love u, is true that he didnt love u but u will also chek ur self, 4 a guy 2 leave u 4 anoder person that mean somtin is roung, chek ur self and c if u have somtin 2 corect in u ok, is an advice.

  6. My dear, stop feeling bad. D guy in question does not deserve u. He would av cheated on u if he had married u. Nt long 4rm now, u’ll tnk God dat tins turned out dat way. But u av 2 4giv dem 4rm ur hrt so dat dey will no b a hindrance to u. Move on wt ur lyf. D best is yet to com. God bless u.

  7. Swt hrt, dat guy was never urs in d 1st place. If u are a true child if God, just knw dat God was adverting a future disaster on ur behalf. So 4give them.

  8. these people are always acting so when do they get time to settle , imagine your boyfriend/girlfriend sees you romantically in a movie but you have no time for him/her they will look else where and in this case your cousin no problem let them enjoy life . you look for yours elsewhere accepting and moving on is the medicine

  9. You may think it’s d worse of all not knowing that it’s the best thing God has ever done in your life. What if you marry him and ended up in a worse situation than this, what will you do. while not forgive them and appreciate God.

  10. you have to forgive them because that guy is not ur husband may be God just what it to happened that way so d right man will come so forgive and forget

  11. U jst have to play big by forgiving them and make them comfortable when the come around u definite their conscience will hunt them and they will feel sori .

  12. Why not 4giv dem and move on? Infact wat was de reason of ya breakup? Let me mak it clear hear that sometymz God makes someone’s destiny 2 be accomplished in many ways…maybe God wanted to bless ya cousin tro you but u won’t understand…keeping malice is not de best cuz u re hurting yaself while dey re somewhere enjoying dia blissful union.you can’t change de pasts failures but you can accept it as history and move on cuz forgiveness is not someting you do 4 others but rather its someting you do 4 urself in order to move on…lastly,let go of de hurt cuz a hurting person is so unpleasant to be around.pray 2 God to giv u ur hrt desired man.

  13. Am single and searching. Am tall, dark in complexion, plompy, fun 2 b wit. Am 4rm abia state but i base in ph. Am 32 yrs old. A graduate of fedpolynekede. Working class guy.i nid a girl of 18 to 25 yr. Tall and plompy .fair or dark 4 a serious relationship. Pls call me 08063479884

  14. The best you can do for yourself is to let go… Not because of them but because of you.
    Once you let go, you set yourself free.
    There’s something about negative feelings that affects you and the way you look…. It dims your radiance. Cheer up gurl and thank your stars you didn’t hookup with that moronic cheat. He’s definitely not worth it.
    You will be glad it happened the way it did. Mark my words, your cousin will soon whine and wish she’d never done this… What else? Because what goes round comes around… It’s called Karma… Just free yourself and enjoy life while it lasts. There’s more to life than a thieving cousin or a cheating boyfriend…
