Award-winning gospel musician Celestine Donkor has shared her compound house experience and how she was locked in the toilet for two hours.
Celestine Donkor recounted when she used to stay in the same compound house with about twelve (12) other tenants in Abeka. She disclosed that she was living with her family and fourteen other siblings in the house.
Celestine Donkor shared her story during the edition of “Grace to Grace” edition of ‘just Being Us” with MzGee on Akwaaba Magic. According to her, she almost fainted after a neighbor locked her for two hours in a compound house toilet one hot afternoon.
“There were very mean adults in that compound house, I remember, one parent, the father of one of the tenants locking me in the toilet because you know we have to have our turn, the person said I had stayed there for too long and it not like today’s toilet,” the Agbebolo singer disclosed.
“The guy locked me in there one hot afternoon and someone else came two hours later to open the door. When I came out I was almost fainting, I was sweating,” Celestine Donkor noted.
The gospel musician disclosed that this experience influenced her never to raise her three children in a compound house.
“I want to protect my kids from wicked people like that, so the environment is very important to me. It was one of the things I looked out for when I decided to marry. I didn’t want a compound house, because it was one of the requirements. I wanted my kids to grow and be nurtured in love,” she added.
