You were quoted as saying you don’t believe in marriage sometime back, but why?
People feel that I don’t want to get married because I don’t believe in marriage or because I don’t have anybody toasting me for marriage. Wrong! I actually believe so much in marriage and that’s why I don’t want to marry; because marriage has been made a nonsense of particularly in this country. As far as I’m concerned, it’s not a fair constitution to women. For instance, if your husband cheats on you, you are expected to forgive him. Even your own mama go tell you “my dear that is what marriage is. It’s for better or worse. It’s a mistake. It’s the devil.” But if by mistake, a woman cheats on her husband in this country, what are you talking about?

She will be called all sorts of names. From Ashawo to witch. If a woman cheats on her husband, the man should ask the woman what is it I’m doing wrong instead of castigating the woman and the society joins in helping him to do the same. But that’s not the only issue I’m talking about, there are so many. I grew up in a polygamous family, I’m an Urhobo girl and maybe that’s part of the reasons I’ve never desired to get married. Most Urhobo men are expected to cheat on their wives. It’s almost a normal thing. If you are an Urhobo man and you don’t cheat on your wife they’ll ask you, “Ol boy, abi this woman don bury calabash for you?”
Are you serious?

“Yes! I said it, quote me. Maybe it’s also my background that brought about my perception of marriage. I have loads of male friends that are married and I know what they do. I also have female friends; very beautiful girls and you can imagine having dinner with like 12 to 13 of them and all they ever talk about is their marriage and how unhappy they are with their husbands. They’ll then ask me, you are looking fresh how do you do it? I always show them my empty fingers and say no man is sucking my blood. I’m not thinking about whether my husband is with one small girl in UNILAG or whether there is no enough money for two of us, because if there is no money I go soak garri for myself, but I’ll never soak garri with you. Forget it! I will not.
