“If marriage comes along, yes I will consider it. Then, I used to say that I didn’t want to get married again because of the stress involved.

Now, I have had a rethink. But I can’t marry a poor man. Some people will say I shouldn’t say that, but I am a blunt person.

For someone like me, there is no love without money. I am a celebrity and I am expected to maintain a certain lifestyle, which is expensive.”

The diva who disclosed she is a breadwinner, caring for seven people, further said the man doesn’t have to be very rich but he should be able to at least feed them.

”I have a lot of responsibilities. As a breadwinner and celebrity, how do you expect me to marry a poor man? Where do you expect us to start from?

I am not ready to add any man’s problems to mine. I don’t need the man to be very rich, but he must be able to feed himself and me. You don’t even have to cater for my other responsibilities.”

For Iyabo also, there is nothing like an ideal man in her world, as she believes no one is perfect.

”We all have our defects. When you keep looking for an ideal man, a good one will pass you by.

I just need a man who is responsible for himself first before me. Once he is hungry for success, every other thing will follow.”

Iyabo further said she doesn’t want to be with a man who will be intimidated by her success, as she wants to be with someone who is more successful than she is.

”The kind of man I want in my life has to be more successful than me. When I bought my personal assistant a car, people said I didn’t want her to marry.

I told them that I don’t expect her to marry someone who does not have a car as well. You say what you want out of life; we shouldn’t deceive ourselves.

  • I am not surprise….iyabo has stated her preference on order of priority culminating from her values as a woman…i would have been surprised if she opted for a well read and knowledgeable man, but no, it’s all about riches and not virtue!.
    Don’t blame Iyabo, blame her background, disposition to life and values !!!
