I’ll get married when It’s God’s time – 30-year-old actress, Lilian Afegbai



Nollywood actress and reality TV star, Lilian Afegbai, has said that she is waiting on God to send her the right man who will be her husband.

She made the statement during an interview with Saturday Beats where she reflected on the decision of a man to leave her because of her career.

It may be recalled that Lilian recently shared the story of a man she thought was the one, only for him to ghost her after finding out that she is an actress.

Speaking on how she felt about what happened, she said; “After that incident, I felt more reassured that God will send the right person to me. It was a wake-up call for me to know that what is not mine is not mine. The guy in question is not a bad person. He knows what he wants. It also does not mean I am a bad person because I am an actress. When God says it is time is when I will get married.”

The former Big Brother Africa contestant further urged people to show love to actresses, rather than ‘judging’ them unfairly. She also addressed the believe that most actresses are being sponsored by rich men.

“All I am going to say is that it is not easy to be in the entertainment industry; it is hard work. Most times, one cannot change the perception of people. One just has to be true to oneself. But, I want people to know that they cannot always label everybody because of the experiences they have had with one or two persons. People should stop being judgmental. Let’s show more love because the world needs more of that,” Afegbai said.

The 30-year-old actress also maintained that divorces were not limited to the entertainment industry.

“As much as people say actresses don’t make good wives, some actors are married and happy. We should stop focusing on the negative but rather on the positive. Veteran actress, Joke Silva, is still married to another veteran, Olu Jacobs. Even if people say they belong to an older generation, there are many young actors who are married and are happy. In the banking, medical and other sectors, people also get divorced. If one goes to court, one will find that people from different walks of life get divorced every day,” she explained.
