Halima Abubakar one of Nollywood’s most controversial actress got massively shaded last week after she declared she was a virgin much to the chagrin of many.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, the actress said she couldn’t understand why people were doubting she was really a virgin.
She had words for those jeering at her to get married and make babies that she has nine years before she hits menopause.
“Why would people become annoyed because I said I am a virgin.” Ms Abubakar said, “Just because I’m in the industry does not mean I am badly behaved. Not everyone is sexually active.”
“You can have a boyfriend and not be sexually active. The reaction I got shows the mentality of the people.”
“If I say I’m a virgin, I am and if I say I am not, then I am not.” She declared.
Ms Halima futher stated, “They tell me to go get married, should I go after someone else’s husband?”
“Everybody thinks one should get married from age 18. A lot of marriages are complicated.”
“Marriage will come when it will come, one doesn’t need to force it. People are getting divorced with pregnancies because they got married under pressure.”
The 31-year-old said people should quit the pressure of marriage while declaring she wouldn’t have kids outside marriage.
“We should let people be. People are saying if you are not getting married, go and get kids because menopause is approaching.” Halima quipped.
“What kind of thing is that? Is it your menopause? I still have about nine years before I hit menopause all things being equal.”
“I am not one of those people that will kill themselves because of marriage. I can’t have kids outside marriage.” The star concluded.
If she says she is a virgin, who are we to doubt her?
