I Want to Restore My Virginity – Doris Simeon
Nollywood actress, Doris Simeon, got embroiled in a scandal of a sort when she and her director
husband Daniel Ademinokan, who has now found comfort in the arms of another actress,
Stella Damasus, separated a couple of years back.
The separation made headlines for months, putting strain on the actress and her child, but like a conqueror, she survived and has since moved on with her life and looking forward to building a new life for herself.

restore her virginity. Excerpts:

He stays with his dad. I really don’t want to say

What lessons did you learn from

I want to be closer to God and put God first in
everything I do.
Is there any man in the picture?

I have no business with her.
