Yoruba actress Iyabo Ojo is opening up about her private life, what she wants her ideal man to be like and what it’s like being a single parent.

In an interview with Punch, the single mom admits she’s ready to try marriage again but just not with any man.

‘If marriage comes along, yes I will consider it. Then, I used to say that I didn’t want to get married again because of the stress involved. Now, I have had a rethink. But I can’t marry a poor man. Some people will say I shouldn’t say that, but I am a blunt person. For someone like me, there is no love without money. I am a celebrity and I am expected to maintain a certain lifestyle, which is expensive.’

The actress further explains why she can’t get married to a man who can’t meet up to her standards because she has lots to cater for.

‘I have a lot of responsibilities. As a breadwinner and celebrity, how do you expect me to marry a poor man? Where do you expect us to start from? I am not ready to add any man’s problems to mine. I don’t need the man to be very rich, but he must be able to feed himself and me. You don’t even have to cater for my other responsibilities.’

Despite she’s not willing to settle for less, Iyabo doesn’t want a man that would be scared of her achievements.

“The kind of man I want in my life has to be more successful than me. When I bought my personal assistant a car, people said I didn’t want her to marry. I told them that I don’t expect her to marry someone who does not have a car as well. You say what you want out of life; we shouldn’t deceive ourselves. It is a choice to die in poverty and I have chosen not to die in poverty. I cannot flow with someone who wants to die in poverty.”

Although, she believes no one is perfect but her man needs to be responsible and hardworking.

‘We all have our defects. When you keep looking for an ideal man, a good one will pass you by. I just need a man who is responsible for himself first before me. Once he is hungry for success, every other thing will follow.’
