I won’t kill myself over marriage – Nollywood actress


Halima Abubakar

Following the controversy which trailed her online
‘revelation’ that she was looking forward to losing
her ‘virginity’ and having kids, Nollywood actress,

Halima Abubakar, has lashed out at what she calls
the negative stereotype of women in the make-
believe industry.
In a chat with Punch(Sunday Scoop), Abubakar
was unapologetic about her hugely controversial
claim of being ‘a virgin’ and took a swipe at
doubting Thomases.
“Why would people become annoyed because I
said I am a virgin? Just because I’m in the
industry does not mean I have badly behaved. Not
everyone is sexually active. You can have a
boyfriend and not be sexually active. The reaction I
got shows the mentality of the people. If I say I’m
a virgin, I’m and if I say I am not, then I am not.
They tell me to go get married, should I go after
someone else’s husband? ” she said. Abubakar

“Everybody thinks one should get married at age
18. A lot of marriages are complicated. Marriage
will come when it comes; one doesn’t need to
force it. People are getting divorced with
pregnancies because they got married under
pressure. We should let people be.
People are saying if you are not getting married, go
and get kids because menopause is approaching.
What kind of the thing is that? Is it your
menopause? I still have about nine years before I
hit menopause all things being equal. I am not one
of those people that will kill themselves because of
marriage. I can’t have kids out of wedlock.”
