Nigerian actress, Mojisola Adebanjo, has revealed why most men in Nigeria are afraid of dating actresses.
Sharing her experience in an interview with Sunday Scoop, Mojisola stated that a lot of Nigerian men do not trust actresses.
She indicated that they are scared to date actresses because they are mostly surrounded by people.
The Nigerian actress said: “From experience, I have realised that many men find it hard being in serious relationships with actress. It is usually so hard for them to trust us, because they feel we are in everyone’s faces; coupled with all the stories usually written about actress. A lot of men are actually scared to date actresses.”
“My first experience was a sweet one. I had mixed feelings; I was excited and scared at the same time because there were many popular actors there. However, I finally summoned courage to do what I had always loved and wanted to do. I had to resign from my regular job to face my acting career,” she recalled.
The filmmaker further talked about how Nollywood treats women.
“Yes, the industry is friendly to women. If a woman knows what she wants and is good at what she does too, the industry will be friendly towards her.”
Mojisola Adebanjo also disclosed that dating a young man won’t be a problem for her if the age is not much wider.
“There is nothing wrong with marrying a younger lover. Like they say, ‘age is just a number’. However, I prefer my man older than me, but not too old. I love men who are mature, understanding, and think outside the box.”
