I was sexually abused at age 6 – Mr Drew reveals
Mr Drew has made a damning revelation about how he was s.ex.ually m0lested by an adult maid when he was just six (6) years old.
In a live chat on Instagram with Kobby Kyei, the ‘Dw3’ hitmaker revealed that he was innocently r.a.ped by a caregiver/caretaker who had been entrusted to look after him in the family house he stayed at the time.
He stated, during the chat, that this was the first time he was telling the public about this ordeal he experienced many years ago because, at that tender age of 6, he didn’t understand that sexual experience and so, could not muster the courage to tell anyone about it.
According to Mr Drew, that childhood ordeal placed a huge psychological burden on him and as a result, started exploring more about sex, leading him to break his virginity at age 16.
Is Mr Drew gay?
Mr Drew has severally been accused as gay by some people because they perceive his actions to be feminine.
According to Mr Drew, he has on countless occasions been tagged as gay because of his feminine features.
The singer-cum-dancer has, however, debunked the claims that he is gay, stating that he is straight except that he acts feminine just for the fun of it.
“They say I’m feminine. Yeah I know I am. Sometimes, I act like that just to be jovial. I can be very feminine just for fun but I’m very straight. I’m very straight,” said Mr Drew.
Is Mr Drew attracted to older women or Sugar Mummies only?
Mr Drew has disclosed that he prefers older women or sugar mummies to young women or those of his age.
According to the Highly Spiritual Music signee, he is naturally attracted to older women because of their sense of maturity and how they pamper boys compared with young ladies of his age.
He explained that his attraction to older is natural and it’s not his fault since he picked that habit or feeling from childhood.
Mr Drew, who made this known in an interview with Abeiku Santana on Okay FM in Accra, said he started dating his female seniors when he was even in Junior High School and that, older women always treat him good because they find him cute.
He revealed that during his school days at Achimota Senior High School, his female seniors used to fight over him for his love, and there was even an occasion where a female senior stuffed a chop box with assorted provisions and brought it from home to him on campus, all because the said female senior was in love with him.
