Actress and model Beverly Osu has spoken about how she feels about love in contemporary society.
Beverly Osu said she would not want to have children outside of marriage because she lacks the mental stability to be a mother during an interview for Vanguard’s web TV program, “Lunch Date with Vanguard.”
“IF DEM COME MARRY ME, I GO GO NAW. SINCERELY, THERE WAS A TIME I USED DREAM ABOUT WEDDINGS. I SEE MY WEDDING DRESS BUT NOW I DON’T SEE ANYTHING. I JUST WANT TO LIVE AND OF COURSE PRAY TO GOD THAT I DON’T BREED CHILDREN OUT OF WEDLOCK BECAUSE I WANT TO BE UNDER A FAMILY. A UNIT. I ALWAYS SAY THIS TO MY FRIENDS AND FAMILY, I AM NOT EMOTIONALLY STRONG TO BE A BABY MAMA. I CAN’T DO IT ALL BY MYSELF.
“I KNOW I HAVE SUPPORTIVE SYSTEM; I HAVE FRIENDS, I HAVE FAMILY THAT WOULD BE THERE. BUT I CAN’T DO THAT. IN A CASE WHERE IT HAPPENS, THEN THE CHILD WOULD BE IN HIS FATHER’S HOUSE. I KNOW THEY SAY WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHILD, THEN YOU KNOW BETTER, BUT I TELL YOU, IF THAT HAPPENS THE CHILD WILL BE IN HIS OR HER FATHER’S HOUSE. THAT’S WHY I WANT TO TRY MY BEST TO DO IT THE RIGHT WAY; MARRIAGE. AND I LOVE LOVE. I WANT TO BE IN LOVE AND OBSESSED WITH MY FAMILY; MY PARTNER. WE GIVE BIRTH AND BREED THE CHILD TOGETHER.”
Also stating that she is single and yearning for love, Beverly Osu added that this generation makes dating seem difficult by lying.
“THIS GENERATION IS MAKING LOVE LOOK SO HARD WITH CHEATING HERE AND THERE. THESE DAYS, CHEATING IS NOW A NORM. FOR ME, I CAN’T. MAYBE BECAUSE I AM OLD SCHOOL BUT I CAN’T. I JUST TO LOVE AND HAVE A COMPANION. BUT SO FAR, I AM SO SINGLE. I THINK THIS IS THE LONGEST THAT I HAVE BEEN SINGLE. AND I AM OPEN TO LOVE. THE NEXT MAN I DATE, I AM GOING TO EXPOSE HIM ON SOCIAL MEDIA SO THAT I WILL KNOW THE FATE OF THE RELATIONSHIP EARLY ENOUGH. MAYBE HE IS DATING OVER 5 GIRLS IN THIS LAGOS, YOU NEVER CAN TELL.”
