Veteran Nollywood actress, Yeye Toyin Adegbola has stated that she is not interested in taking a shot at marriage for a second time after she lost her husband 21 years ago.
Adegbola stated this in Ibadan, the Oyo State capital in a radio programme monitored by DAILY RIPLLES on Tuesday.
According to her, she is concentrating more on the success and welfare of her children, saying that task have taken up her time just as she added that her greatest regret is losing her husband early in her marriage as she never bargained for the unexpected development.
She said, “Blood runs in my vein, it is a decision I have made for myself at this particular time, I don’t owe anybody any explanation for deciding since year 2020 when my husband died not to remarry.
“I want my children to be okay, but for now I am not ready for it”.
She stated these while featuring on a weekly radio show, Ayekooto on Radio’ anchored by Olayinka Agboola and broadcast live on Lagelu 96.7 FM, Felele, Ibadan on Tuesday evening.
Commenting on the travail of another Nollywood actor, Mr. Olanrewaju James, popularly known as Baba Ijesha, she urged Nigerians to allow the court to give its verdict as there are things to be mindful of because of the legal implication attached to the case.
“It is unfortunate that the issue became a public material to be debated. Now that it is in the court of law, I believe justice will be served.” She said.
Speaking on the controversial ‘Oniduro’ guarantor saga involving popular singer, Tope Alabi, the thespian reaffirmed that God has a diverse way of speaking to human beings and He is human beings’ reliable Guarantor that cannot be disputed.
She, however, stated that Tope Alabi should have diplomatically communicated the message in a better way without being accused of destroying another person’s job or reputation.
When quizzed about what she loves doing when not at film locations, she said “I love cooking and listening to music when I am not on location. Nobody cooks for me when I am at home”.
Speaking on the accident that she experienced while on working on a movie directed by Tope Adebayo sometime last year, she said it was part of the hazards of her jobs as the injury almost led to the amputation of her leg.
She stated that God saved and sustained her as she did not have any underlying medical issues that could have triggered the amputation of her leg.
She further added that the ethics and love of the profession which says “the show must continue” made her to return to the location the following day even though she spent about four months nursing the injury.
She, however, admonished young women to be dedicated and focused in life and in their chosen professions as Rome was not built in a day while urging them to learn from respected men and women who worked hard to become great achievers in life.
The respected thespian further warned young ladies on the need to desist from mundane and immoral jobs as it will not profit them at the end of the day. She said “When you say you are not ready to work but want to become a prostitute and become rich overnight, they will just use you and dump you like a basket of tomatoes.”
