The Nollywood actress claimed that she and the music executive thought marriage was overrated.
Popular Nollywood actress, Iyabo Ojo, has stated that despite not being married, she and her lover, Paul Okoye, popularly known as Paul O, are happy in their relationship.
The Nollywood actress claimed that she and the music executive don’t want to be married because they do not believe in the institution.
Iyabo emphasised that marriage is overrated on a recent episode of her TV show, Iyabo Ojo TV, alongside veteran musician Charly Boy.
“I am enjoying my relationship. I am enjoying it. Luckily for me, he [Paulo Okoye] also doesn’t believe in marriage. We feel like it is overrated.”
Charly Boy concurred:
“I agree with you that marriage is overrated. My son called me the other day and said, ‘Dad, why can’t people have a contract and say we will just do five years in marriage and if we are lucky and happy, we renew the contract?’
It sounds funny but you know, there are different coping mechanisms because these days, marriage is not what it used to be when our parents got married. Marriage is a little bit muddled up now. And people are a little bit more individualistic than they used to be before. Nobody wants to serve anybody. Everybody wants to get their own. So, that’s where the problem starts.”
