This Is what Nollywood actress Dayo Amusa told Nigerian Tribune in a recent interview when she was asked why she was still single.
What’s the worst rumour you’ve ever heard about yourself?
I don’t get myself bothered when people write stories about me – especially those that I know are untrue.
When you really do something and the press gets hold of it, you might feel guilty of it; but when journalists just cook up stories to fill their pages, I feel it’s better one overlooks it.
It is not a problem to me and as far as I’m concerned, I care less. Also, I’ve come to realise that being a celebrity goes along with rumours.
The name Dayo Amusa many times has been on the lips of people; it’s either you’re dating this person or another, or you’re doing one thing or the other. What could be responsible for this?
If I’m in a relationship and it doesn’t work for me, I believe I have the right to opt out because I deserve to be happy. So, if I’m in a relationship and I’m not getting the happiness I desire, I can’t be crucified for walking out of it.
After all, I’m not married to such person.
So, why is Dayo Amusa not yet married?
I’ll get married when I meet a man that is bold enough to date a woman like me.
Women like us need special men that understand the way we need to be treated for us to settle down. If that man is not available yet, then I won’t jump into marriage because people feel I should have been married now.
Because I am not yet married doesn’t mean I won’t get married. Besides, marriage is not a do-or-die affair.
Although it is honourable and it is a good thing to enjoy, if the right man is not there, I would rather remain single than find myself in a marriage that I will end up regretting.
