Marriage, Not Do or Die-Genevieve


One of Naija’s finest acts, Genevieve Nnaji has said that getting married was not a must.

The screen diva, dubbed by CNN as the “Julia Roberts of Africa” disclosing this declared that it was not a do or die affair, even though she was not ruling it out.

Her words, “I don’t know why people are so keen about me getting married. Is marriage compulsory?”

She added, “I am not saying that if it comes I won’t accept it, I will, but I must do it right. I am not desperate about marriage now and I have never been.”

The Member of the Order of the Niger (MON) award recipient, who turned 38 in May have been under pressure from both well wishers and critics to settle down, but has stated that one reason why she was not married yet was because she was taking her time.

In an earlier interview she was quoted to have said: “If I get married, I really want to stay married and staying married is not an easy thing. It means you are completely in tune with your partner. It means you have found your soul mate.”
