Currently, Nigeria is going through a phase of scarcity, where several other commodities, aside fuel, are on serious demand. Just like the number of cars that need fuel is higher than the PMS available, the number of men available in the country is not sufficient for the millions of single ladies, says Nollywood actress, Nkiru Sylvanus. Therefore, inferring that there is ‘men scaricty.’
Speaking through the mindset of men scarcity, the actress cum politician disclosed this ideology during an interview on HipTv. Nkiru Sylvanus says Nigerian single ladies should deviate from the biblical belief of one-man one-wife, as that may seem impossible to achieve considering the ratio of men to women. She also says she does not mind becoming a second wife, because it is no big deal.
Hear her argument:
“If the situation and the person is good, I’ll go for it. I’ve said it before that if ladies don’t stop this nonsense they call ‘one-man-one-wife’, many of them will get to 40 and still remain single.
“There are more women than men. Go to churches, the number of single ladies in most cases is three times the number of single guys.”
Meanwhile, in December 2014, rumor had it that the actress, who was a former aide to the Imo state governor, Owelle Rochas Okorocha, allegedly got married to Stanley Duru, the ex-husband of Nollywood actress, Oge Okoye. The whole ‘brouhaha’ started when Oge Okoye moved in with Stanley in his home at Amsterdam while he was already dating Nkiru Sylvanus. The later actress was dumped after Stanley realized that he was going to be a father by Oge Okoye, meanwhile, Nkiru was already make plans for her wedding with him.
Oge, after giving birth to a son for Stanley in 2006, she had another baby for him in 2010. However, the marriage crashed after two years due to alleged infidelity by the actress, thus the young man’s reverting to his ex-Nkiru. Although the Egg of Life actress denies getting married to her colleague’s ex-husband, her marital status remains unknown. However, from her above statement in the interview, the actress does not mind being a second wife to Stanley, or any other man for that matter.
