Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has lashed out at all the Nigerians, doubting Thomases who criticized her the last time she revealed she was looking forward to losing her ‘virginity’ and having kids.
She had been mocked that if she is not getting married, she should go and get kids because menopause is approaching. Halima is firing back saying:
What kind of thing is that? Is it your menopause? I still have about nine years before I hit menopause all things being equal.
In a chat with Sunday Scoop, Abubakar was unapologetic about her hugely controversial claim of being ‘a virgin’. Read what she told SS below: “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 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. 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.”
