Contrary to the belief of many that Nollywood actor, Aremu Afolayan is a gigolo, the younger brother of renowned filmmaker, Kunle Afolayan has revealed that his love for dating older women has nothing to do with money.
The talented actor and son of late legendary actor, Adeyemi Afolayan aka Ade Love, said he is not bothered at what people say about him so far he is happy doing what they criticise him for.
In an interview with Yes Magazine, Aremu, who married an Abuja-based older lady a few years ago, declared that he cannot imagine dating younger women.
‘They said I’m a gigolo right? I owe no one any explanation for the way I live my life. They can criticize my film, but not my life.
‘They said I do rich women for money, how I wish I can do that because a gigolo don’t get broke like this. If I’m a gigolo I will never sell my properties to do a film of N16 million. I sold three of my cars to raise the money. I am not what people think I am,’ he said.
He added: ‘I love ladies that are older than me. It’s my business because I don’t find the good thing, the real love and happiness from the young chaps.’
On why he does not date younger women, the ‘Matade Maxwell’ actor said, ‘Can you imagine a situation where I sleep with my girl now and she will go and sleep with one yahoo boy or my daddy’s friend again because she needs money?
Speaking further, he noted, ‘So, I have to follow someone who is not a girl as they say, but a lady that is at least older than me. This is what I like; my life, not their life. So, that’s no one’s business. You see, I owe no one any explanation concerning this. I can only explain to God and until He comes, I can continue.’
