Bimbo Success, a popular actress in Nollywood, has shared her personal journey of getting married as a virgin at the age of 34, despite being in the entertainment industry.
During an interview with her colleague Biola Bayo on the YouTube channel “Talk To B,” the Yoruba star discussed the prevalent perception of actresses being promiscuous.
Bimbo revealed that she managed to maintain her virginity until marriage, despite receiving attention and advances from both single and married men. She recounted how people questioned her ability to secure acting roles without engaging in romantic relationships within the industry. Some of her colleagues even offered to introduce her to potential partners, but she turned down their proposals.
Bimbo Success explained that witnessing her brother engage in casual relationships with multiple women, only to discard them later, influenced her decision to remain celibate until her wedding night.
“I was 34 when I got married.
People questioned how I was getting roles without dating anyone in the industry and some of my colleagues even promised to hook me up but I declined.
I had admirers both single guys and married men, but it was my decision to keep myself.
So that experience combined with how my elder brother whom I live with treated women, having sexual intercourse with one, another will come.
Is this how I will continue, that mentality was what I carried that no sex till marriage?
I lost my virginity after my wedding”.
