At some point in life, every woman will have to decide the kind of man they want to spend the rest of their lives with. In an interview with ’Nonye Ben-Nwankwo and Ademola Olonilua of the Punch, the Toyin Abraham talks about what she wants in a man while she also addresses the controversial part of her
On the kind of man she wants
I want a man who is tall, hardworking, and loves his job. I would want to be with a man who does not chase women and would not constantly request for money from me. If he needs my help, I can do it. I don’t want to be with a short man. My man has to be taller than I am.”I feel it is normal and comes with the territory of being an actress.
On being involved in controversial matters
Based on the fact that I am an actress, people will always tag me with something. It hurts when they say I was in a relationship with someone I never dated or when they write about things that I did not do and just put it out there. Sometimes I read such write-ups and begin to wonder if I ever did those things but what will I do?
To be great in life, you have to be willing to be mocked, hated and misunderstood. I don’t see criticism as anything and I am not bothered whenever I am being criticised by the public. I know that some people would love me and others would hate me, so I do not let that disturb me. Trust me, the criticism only makes me a better person, so when people say negative things about me, it makes me understand that I cannot be right every time. I thank God that I am now getting some things right.
