PRESSURE WON’T MOVE ME TO MARRY – Actress Yvonne Okoro Speaks

Actress Yvonne Okoro has revealed that no amount of pressure on social media or from friends would move her to get married.

The actress is one of the female celebrities who face constant questions from followers and fans on social media as well as in interviews on when she will settle down.

But in an interview with Abeiku Santana on the Atuu show which aired on UTV last Saturday, April 10, the beautiful actress said the rate of divorce in the country was very high and in order not to add to the numbers, it was best to take her time and marry the right man.

“I don’t believe in rushing into marriage and getting divorced. Then what’s the point of me getting married in the first place? I want to be happy with my man who would love me for who I am,” she said.

According to Yvonne, she would prefer a man who is caring and appreciates his mother. “A man who loves his mother cherishes women and looks is the last thing I consider when choosing a man,” she stated.

Asked whether men come her way, the Single Six actress replied yes but said she was careful who she gave her heart to.

Answering questions on her supposed ‘beef’ with Yvonne Nelson, Yvonne Okoro said she was okay with Yvonne Nelson and explained that it was a small misunderstanding that happened.

She denied dating musician Criss Waddle and footballers Emmanuel Adebayor and John Painstil. “You know when two mature adults meet more than once at a particular place, people draw their conclusions that they are dating but I’ve never dated any of the guys,” she stated.

I PLANNED THE BEEF WITH ENO BARONY AND FREDA RHYMZ – Sista Afia Confesses

Singer Sista Afia has confessed that her beef with female rappers Eno Barony and Freda Rhymes was staged for attention.

The singer has come out to say that she called Eno Barony and Freda Rhymes to plan the beef but these two are being ungrateful after she gave them attention from the media.

The “Jeje” hitmaker made the shocking revelation on “The Fella Makafui” stating it was was her idea and her colleagues agreed to join.

“These girls are ungrateful. I don’t know if you know this but I planned this whole beef. Yes I did, because I felt like the girls need attention. I call Eno myself and I told her I want to do something. Do you want to join? And she joined”, Sista Afia told Fella.

That beef was considered one of the hottest to ever come from the females in the music industry. Bloggers and entertainment show hosts enjoyed every bit of it thinking it was organic only to be deceived by the ladies.

Sista Afia and Freda Rhymes even fought twice during that time. They nearly exchanged blows on TV, and situations went intense at the premises of Tv3 where they met again.
