She has always made headlines going back to the days of her saying she would never get married, to her, ‘I am a virgin’ days.
Following her recent ‘revelation’ that she was looking forward to losing her ‘virginity’ and having kids, which immediately had trolls slamming her, Nollywood actress, Halima Abubakar, has clapped backed.
She recently sat down for chat with Punch(Sunday Scoop), where she made it clear that it was nobody’s business if she were still a virgin.
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?
She added saying:
Everybody thinks one should get married from age 18. A lot of marriages are complicated. Marriage will come when it will come, one doesnt 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.
