She revealed that her father’s sudden departure had a profound impact on her, especially since she and her older brother, Gabriel, were about to finish their undergraduate studies.

According to Hilda, her father had always been involved in their lives since they were children. However, things changed when a heated argument between him and her mother affected the children.

Hilda expressed her confusion over her father’s decision to stop supporting their education, especially after he had funded their academic journey from nursery school to the early years of their tertiary education.
