It may sound incredulous to say that a female celebrity in Nigeria is still retaining her virginity, considering the level of promiscuity that is usually associated with their lifestyle.
Although some other parts of the world may not attach much value to virginity or hold women who are virgins in high esteem, most African cultures and tradition still place much value on chastity, purity, and virginity among other things. By this, we mean the state of not being engaged in any sexual intercourse.
However, it is quite difficult nowadays to define who a virgin is in the real meaning of the word. The general meaning of the word “virgin” refers to a girl who keeps her chastity. Such a girl can be said not to have slept with the opposite sex at the time of being called a virgin. Back then, should a young lady be found guilty of losing her virginity and purity before marriage the shame was borne not just by the lady, but by her parents as well. Much emphasis is not placed on male virginity probably because the males do not have a hymen.
It may not have crossed your wildest imaginations that we still have a hand full of them who have decided to remain holy and loyal to their future husbands. Meet these daring ladies who value their pride and would not let it go for a million dollars!
An Imo-state-born Afro-pop singer who became the UN ambassador of peace nearly 5 years after climbing the music stage in Nigeria gave everyone a shocker when she disclosed to Vanguard’s Potpourri, that come what may, she must not have sex until after marriage. She said she chose to remain pure in the process of chasing her dreams because she believes not doing so can contaminate and pollute her destiny as a singer.
Moreover, the ‘virgin singer’ said she’ll only surrender to the man that can buy her mum a private jet which she promised her before marriage. However, the news of her still being a virgin went public when she volunteered her virginity to the Boko Haram in exchange for the abducted Chibok girls.
Meanwhile, the Pretty Virgin, as she calls herself said:“I have a boyfriend now but what we share is Agape love”.
When the Nollywood actress, Afro-pop singer, and CEO, Hunters Media International Seyi Adokiye declared that she is a virgin in a recent chat with Vanguard’s Potpourri, many thought it was untrue following the number of roles she has taken in the movies. Some others, however, took her by her words, believing she would possibly be the last five of the virgins in the entertainment industry. But it seems there are others as Seyi Hunter boldly came out and declared she is a virgin too.
In an interview with Showtime Celebrity, she said: “I know nothing about sex. Money is more important to me in a relationship”.
Seyi is born of an Igbo father and an Akwa Ibom mother. She started off her career in the Yoruba sector and has featured in about 20 movies in both the Yoruba and English language movies.
The Miss ‘Kedike’ and ‘EmiNi Baller’ crooner and 2010 Project Fame Season 3 winner, cried out that she is still a virgin while denying in very strong terms ever making a sex tape that has gone viral on the Internet she emphasized her claims by saying she could not have been involved in such sex scandal since she is still a virgin.
“I didn’t make any sex tape o, I have no idea where that tape is from and I am still a virgin o,” she said. She also promised to sue those behind the dastardly act.
The beautiful singer also assured her fans that she is still the same after dying her hair red and getting a mohawk that got people thinking of her as a good girl gone bad.
