In a recent interview with Chude Jideonwo, the 34-year-old actress disclosed that the blog continuously published derogatory content about her.

Beverly Naya pondered why she was consistently singled out for criticism on the blog.

“It really got to me and it damaged my self esteem and it made me doubt myself like I really don’t feel like I want to continue in this industry, I wanted to quit on several occasions”

Expressing her profound sadness, the black beauty admitted that the ordeal left her questioning her aptitude in the entertainment realm, nearly causing her to abandon her acting career on numerous occasions.
