Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu has expressed her regrets having sex with men before she got married to her actor husband, Adeniyi Johnson.
The popular actress made this known in an interview she granted YNaija. OrijoReporter reproduced an excerpt of the interview.
What has changed since she got married?
“Dressing, I can’t wear those skimpy outfits anymore, moreover the way I talk to people has changed too. I can no longer make decisions on my own and I can’t use my black berry anymore, that’s the most painful one. My husband doesn’t like me using It because it distracts me and I have to obey him cos is my small god”
Arguments and kitchen:
I love to cook o. My husband rarely joins me in the kitchen except when he is very hungry, so he comes to monitor my cooking. When we argue, I usually apologize first because he is from Ondo and Ondo people are usually stubborn but sometimes anybody can apologize first.
Sex before Marriage:
“Hmm, sex before marriage. I am guilty of it as well. It is not a good thing but what can we do. May God help us Christians and forgive us. It is not easy, the temptation is too much. In my own case, when I had with my husband before we got married, I really felt bad about it and asked for forgiveness and for like four months, we abstained from it till after our wedding. It wasn’t easy but we made sure we there was some distance.”
Pregnancy before Marriage:
I wasn’t pregnant before my wedding; my tummy was just big in the pictures because of too much carbohydrate. I wasn’t doing any form of exercise, I was too lazy but I am slimmer and prettier now.
We haven’t done our traditional and white wedding because there is no money. Of course when money comes, we will do it. Many fans believe I pretend that I am wealthy but I am not, in fact I wish Daddy Mike Adenuga or Otedola would call me now and say my daughter, I heard you mentioned my name in your Alakada movie, come and take N10million.
I will immediately go and buy a house in Banana Island, buy Gwagon and range rover and do a lot of shopping…lol, the truth is I don’t have money, we are struggling but we are not begging sha and that is what matters, at least we live in a flat and we have a car, we try”
On the controversy of being paid N1.5million to emcee a friend’s wedding recently:
I wasn’t paid N1.5million for any MC job. The I.5M tag on Instagram was the price of the ring, it was an exclusive diamond ring and I haven’t seen such before, I don’t know why bloggers will assume I was paid such, none of them bothered to confirm it from me. Sometimes when you are bored, you know you just write stuffs on social media but these bloggers blow it out of proportion. And even if I was paid N1.5million, why will I come on internet to let people know I was paid so. Olorun Maje (God forbid), I don’t have such upbringing about showing off my wealth to oppress others, when some don’t even have food to eat. Yet you see some celebs showing off almost 30 cars.
That is why I love comedian AY and his wife, Mabel, Jesus Christ their house is awesome and out of this world, 2face’s house nko. Those are rich people yet they don’t come online to brag about their wealth or fake bags and shoes. Imagine someone buying a $3000 shoe, I dey mad.
Flaunting wealth on social media:
Most times it is fans that cause it; they make many celebs lie on social media. They expect too much, forgetting that we are humans too. Imagine if I buy a 3k shoe for instance and I wear it to an event once, fans expect me not to wear it again, they will be like “is that not the shoe she wore last week” so celebrities have to please the fans, I don’t let it affect me though. if I should buy such a shoe, I will still wear it for 7months”
The most expensive item in my wardrobe is nothing. My phone is the only expensive thing I have and it is even cheap sef. My clothes, shoes and bags are China or Uk primary new look which I get from the Island.
How I relax:
I can talk three days non-stop and my husband likes when I give him all the gist but sometimes he tells me not to talk too much and be like Mummy Omotola Ekeinde and Ibinabo Fiberesima, I love them pieces, I am Omotola Ekeinde’s first born.
Her recent controversial post on women being their own enemies:
Whenever you want Nigerians to read or notice something just put a little mistake. I was happy because everyone read it, but they read it to make jest of me and my English, lol. Women try hard are truly their own enemies, you know a man is married yet still try hard to get his attention.
Women and her husband:
Plenty, what can I do? God will help us; you need to sell the hell that goes on my husband’s facebook page all the time.
