Nollywood actress, Beverly Osu has revealed how she joined a convent as a reverend sister and got expelled.

In an interview on Tea With Tay podcast, she explained how her family got her to enroll in a convent when she was still in high school.

Osu said that her participation in extracurricular activities including performing secular music and taking part in stage plays, particularly one in which she played Lucifer, led to her expulsion.

She, however, stated that the school authorities did not explicitly use the term expulsion, they asked her to continue God’s work elsewhere and never return.

She said ,“Family first said this girl is very stubborn, let us throw her in there and I just said okay,”

“It is a secondary school ‘Daughters of Divine Love’ but you register, being a sister or not.

“Na reverend sister they picked for me so I had to follow the path but they expelled me.

“Till today, I still have small resentment like, ‘why una expel me?’ But then, I used to play secular music, I was the drum prefect and I used to do stage plays.

“Some girls woke up and said after the stage play, they were seeing me in their dreams and I am a witch because I played Lucifer.

“They expelled me because they said I was doing the most with the band, with the stage play, with not sleeping on my bed.

“They asked me to go and continue God’s work somewhere else. They did not want to say it is expulsion but they gave me a letter never to come back.”
