Actress Omotola Jalade gives reason why she married at 18
Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, a Nollywood actress popularly called ‘Omosexy’, has said no lady who is financially unstable should consider marriage.
Omotola disclosed this in a recent interview with BBC Yoruba, revealing that she got married at 18 because she was a millionaire.
She made it clear that any woman who is considering marriage without being financially stable is automatically preparing herself to be imprisoned in the union.
According to her: “One should not marry a man when one is not financially stable. If one does that, one would be going into slavery or better still, prison.
“One must apply wisdom or common sense in everything one does. People cannot say that because I married at 18, therefore they can also do the same. The question is, ‘are you ready for marriage’? When I was 18, I was ready.
“I had been working since I was 15-year-old and I became a millionaire at the age of 18. That is a fact that a lot of people do not know.
“I had my own money. I was not dependent on any man. Moreover, I lost my father at an early age, so I was already responsible for my younger siblings. I was like their mother at that time, so I was very mature and financially prepared.”
