She further adds that she did not know the reason why she was still in that toxic relationship despite all the warning signs.
The presenter said she always thought she was on the wrong because of how her boyfriend treated her.
She recalls an incident when the boyfriend came back home at 3:00 am and woke her up and took a knife and placed it on his neck while threatening her.
That's the time she decided to leave the relationship even though she was broken and also stigmatised to talk about the whole ordeal.
The radio host was also worried about how life would turn out to be after the abusive relationship.
She concludes the video by warning all the men who raise their hands on women.
