Halima Abubakar Nollywood actress Halima Abubakar who has faced a lot of criticism recently for first declaring she doesn’t want to get married, and later saying she’s still a virgin, has responded to her critics.
Halima who has lots of Nollywood movies to her credit, said she still has up to 9 years before approaching menopause, and that she’ll not have a child outside wedlock.In an interview with Punchng, here’s what she said about the backlash she received:“
Why would people become annoyed because I said I am a virgin? 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 thementality of the people.
If I say I’m a virgin, I am and if I say I am not, then I am not. 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. We should let people be.
People are saying if you are not getting married, go and get kids because menopause is approaching.
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.”What do you think?
