Popular Nigerian actress, Osas Ighodaro Ajibade has shut down rumours that her husband and fellow actor, Gbenro Ajibade, married her for selfish reasons.
The model in a chat with Genevieve magazine debunked rumours Gbenro Ajibade married her to enable him obtain a green card permit.
According to her, her husband is different from what people thought of him.
The new mum told Genevieve, “ Being in the limelight, I hear different things and I wouldn’t be human if some of them didn’t get to me; especially the comments people made about how he is only with me because he wants a green card.
That was very hurtful because people don’t understand the love we have for each other. Everybody likes a good life. Who no like better tin? If he is able to get a green card for being with me, then that is a blessing but for people to assume that that is the only reason he is with me is very hurtful. ”
” Gbenro has had different opportunities in his life and he could have made that ‘green card’ happen a long time ago. He always tells me that he had never envisioned himself being in love and in a relationship until he met me. He thought he might just end up having a baby mama. I didn’t ask him to marry me. He asked me to take this journey with him. People can talk all they want, ” she added.
Speaking further on why she kept her pregnancy a secret from the social media before delivery, the actress said, “ This is my first child and I do not want people’s opinions or judgment at this time. I have friends in the industry who were judged heavily when they were pregnant and it is not easy.
I want to take back that power from the public and enjoy my pregnancy with all its challenges. Unfortunately I am aware that this is the industry we signed up for and people will always judge
“ Let’s be real, there are bad belle people out there so to protect this blessing we chose to enjoy the moment privately,” she ended.
