I won’t allow relatives live with my husband and I – Actress, Angela Eguavoen

Nollywood actress, Angela Eguavoen has said that he can never marry a man who’s a ‘mummy’s boy’.

She revealed this during an interview, while explaining that he needs to be a man of himself in order for her to take him serious.

Angela said she wants a husband who is not easily influenced by external forces even though she wants a man that has someone he respects in his family.

Eguavoen also said that she would not allow any of their relatives to live in her matrimonial home, with the exception of health-related situations.

She said; “I cannot marry a mummy’s boy. He has to be a man of himself. Of course, I want a man that has someone in his family that he respects and listens to. He has to be someone who keeps to his words, and cannot be easily swayed.

“No family member will live with me and my husband unless she (mother-in-law) is sick and is in need of attention. I am a busy woman and not the type that would sit at home to take care of anybody. I am of the opinion that in-laws living permanently with a newly-wed couple is not good”.

On the issue of fake friendships amongst actresses in the industry, she said; “I don’t know about them. I do not keep many friends. I have just a few of them and they have all been true to me. I believe friendship should not be a one-sided thing. If we (friends) are benefiting from each other, the person won’t think I am using them.

“But, one way or the other, one person will outdo the other at some point. However, that one person is doing better than the other does not mean they cannot do better later.”
