Ghollywood actor, John Dumelo is no stranger to the Nigerian movie scene. The actor was in the news recently for making up with his friend and fellow actress Yvonne Nelson with whom he had a fallout for about a year.
He spoke to The Nation recently about his love life, his style, childhood, career, among other things.
When he was asked about the advice he gives women constantly about not rushing into marriage and why he gives the advice, he said:
It was like a series I did because I’ve seen a lot of people talking about the beauty of marriage. I’ve also seen a lot of people getting into marriage early and I’ve seen a lot of people getting into marriage and divorcing early. I think people just like the idea of marriage but they don’t know how to stay in the marriage. They like the idea of love but they don’t know how to be in love or stay in love. So I thought, since I have some following, I decided to say that this is what I’ve heard, this is what I’ve seen. Let me just put it in writing. I was just advising people not to rush into marriage because their friends are getting married or because they want to have beautiful wedding pictures in Bellanaija, or because you want to rent a nice place, play music and everything. That’s not what marriage is about. Marriage is making it work and that’s what is making a lot of marriages fail these days. People go into it with the wrong mindset.
When he was asked if he was willing to marry a Nigerian like Chris Attoh did, he responded, “If you give me, I’ll take now.”
