Nollywood actress Moyo Lawal has given her future husband the leeway to cheat but says he should apply common sense to it so he can execute it ‘professionally.’
While speaking to Maryjane Eze of Legit.ng, Moyo said she won’t be bothered if her man cheats on her provided he can use protection so he wouldn’t transfer any STIs to her.
“Yes, I can forgive and take back a cheating partner. In fact, I don’t see my man cheating as a big deal. My own is don’t come and be pretending that you are “one holy than thou” or neglect your duties. Just cheat on me with sense and use protection,” she said boldly.
Asked if she thinks her career is one of the reasons she is not married yet, Moyo said: “It was more because before I started my skincare business a couple of years ago, I didn’t have a stable income (in the sense that with acting even though I was working regularly, I couldn’t actually make a financial budget for the year) I wasn’t about to start a family without being able to plan properly. Nothing terrifies me more than bringing children into this world to suffer.
“Stardom almost deprived me of a chance to have a regular life but when I started my business, me sef became a regular person. So, nobody can use stardom to blackmail me again (laughs).”
On whether she can marry an older man, she responded by saying: “If he ticks my list, why not if not? I think it might even be easier for me because marriage is a job you have to be willing to work on for the rest of your life. Hence, if he is much older, it might be a lot easier respecting his decisions, opinions and trusting him not to lead us astray because he has lived many lifetimes.
“In fact, a husband material for me is definitely someone who has sense and empathy. Treats the waiter like a colleague, has deep family values but he is not society-driven (what will people say kind of person). Then he has to be crazy to a very large extent (Covers face).”
