The orphan who lost both parents while still a teenager regrets doing the job, which she does to enable her cater for herself, her seven siblings, and her 6-year-old daughter.
Speaking to crimecheckghana.org, Blessing said she is tired of servicing about thirty men a day but still struggles to save.
She said she has not been able to gather the amount of money she was told she would make when she comes to Ghana to do the job and therefore wants to go back to her home country or do other businesses if she gets the needed support.
Due to poverty, the mother of one said she dropped out of school and got pregnant at age 16. This was after she lost her mother in 2007 but her father who later died in 2014 could not fund her education.
“I am tired of doing this job. I am doing it because of my siblings and my daughter who are in Nigeria but it has overwhelmed me. Since the demise of my parents my family does not care about me. That is why I am doing this but I am tired,” she cried.
On how she became a sex worker, she narrated that a Ghanaian woman in Nigeria introduced her to the job enticing her that it is lucrative. She was convinced after the woman told her the job would help her out of poverty.
“My madam took me to a shrine and made me remove some of my pubic hair, took pictures of my nude, and made me swear an oath to serve her. I paid Ten Thousand Ghana cedis as service to her. During that period I gave all the money I made from sleeping with men to her,” she said.
“After I gained my independence, I pay a daily rent of Thirty Ghana cedis. Other expenses are also swallowing me up. I want to go and see my siblings and my daughter because I am struggling. Nobody in Nigeria knows the job I am doing,” she said.
Blessing said she charges Ten Ghana cedis to Thirty Ghana cedis but protects herself during sex.
“I take the men to my room. When I charge them they ask for a reduction but since I need the money I give in to their offer,” she said.
