In an interview on SoundcityCityDivas show with Pearl, EME’s first lady, Niyola, revealed she was molested.
"I have been molested quite a number of times. Thankfully, I haven't been raped. I have been molested by both people I never imagined would molest me...and obviously strangers as well. And it wasn't once, it wasn't twice. It wasn't three times. But what helped me was that I started to try to figure out at that time why anybody would want to do that to me or to any female. I realized it was cowardice. A lot of things could be done to prevent the situations and protect yourself. I remember for a very long time, I would never visit guys. And when I started to live alone when I was in school, you would never come to my room for any reason. For a very long time I was paranoid. But I realized that if you share your experience with people, your fellow women, you'll find that it's not that big a deal that you can't come out & talk about it because it's not your fault that someone tried to molest you. Such people should actually be punished and brought to book."
