Oh yes! Iyabo Ojo won’t walk down the isle with you if you are not okay enough to foot your bills.
The Yoruba actress who not quite long opened a restaurant made this known in an interview with Sunday scoop.
Since her marriage was dissolved due to some issues, she has decided to give marriage a second thought following the fact that she doesn’t want to die a single lady.
Below are excerpts from her interview with Sunday scoop.
“If marriage comes along, yes I will consider it. Then, I used to say that I didn’t want to get married again because of the stress involved. Now, I have had a rethink. But I can’t marry a poor man. Some people will say I shouldn’t say that, but I am a blunt person. For someone like me, there is no love without money. I am a celebrity and I am expected to maintain a certain lifestyle, which is expensive.”
Although the actress claims to be the one keeping up the responsibility of taking care of the people around her.
“I have a lot of responsibilities. As a breadwinner and celebrity, how do you expect me to marry a poor man? Where do you expect us to start from? I am not ready to add any man’s problems to mine. I don’t need the man to be very rich, but he must be able to feed himself and me. You don’t even have to cater for my other responsibilities.”
For Iyabo Ojo also, there is nothing like an ideal man in her world, as she believes no one is perfect.
“We all have our defects. When you keep looking for an ideal man, a good one will pass you by. I just need a man who is responsible for himself first before me. Once he is hungry for success, every other thing will follow.”
But, she quickly admitted that nothing could make her settle for a man who would be scared of her success.
“The kind of man I want in my life has to be more successful than me. When I bought my personal assistant a car, people said I didn’t want her to marry. I told them that I don’t expect her to marry someone who does not have a car as well. You say what you want out of life; we shouldn’t deceive ourselves. It is a choice to die in poverty and I have chosen not to die in poverty. I cannot flow with someone who wants to die in poverty,” she said.
