BBNaija Star, Anto Lecky On The Kind Of Man For Her & Why Nigerians Won’t Take Mental Health Seriously

Reality TV star and media personality, Munirat Antoinette Lecky, popularly called Anto, has opened up on the kind of man for her. The BBNaija ex-housemate in an interview with Sunday Scoop said she is willing to date any man who is honest and ready to take her for who she is.

Asked if she could date anyone in the showbiz industry, Anto said she could date any man willing to take her for who she is, is deserving.

“At this point, I’m trying to date whoever will accept me for me.

In dating, I think usually most people date people within their fields/industry, because where else do most people find partners besides ‘at work’?

So, I’m not against dating someone in the limelight.

I’m most interested in dating someone who is honest and keeps to his word,”

she said.

Speaking on mental health in Nigeria, the actress believes that Nigerians don’t pay adequate attention to the subject. She told Sunday Scoop that as long as Nigerians believe in ‘juju and jazz’, they will not understand what mental health is.

She said:

“It is a known fact that we do not pay enough attention to mental health in Nigeria.

As long as we still believe in jazz, juju, and village people disturbing lives, many Nigerians will not understand what mental health is.

But luckily, more and more people are learning about it and educating others.

More Nigerians are feeling more comfortable to talk about their mental health despite the existing stigma.”

Some weeks back, Anto took to her Instagram page to write about some of her personal struggles, describing life as hard. Her message was misconstrued by many who thought she was depressed. Debunking the claim, she said:

“I think celebrities should do whatever will give them peace of mind.

I wrote that life is hard, and some people were saying I was depressed, broke, or regretted my decision to be on Big Brother show, and none of these things are the issues I am facing.

No one wants to deal with people misconstruing their words and no one wants to open themselves up to insults, so celebrities should show vulnerability to their fans, media, only if they want to.

It would be great if our favourites, heroes, can comfortably come online and speak their truths.

But other people online, mostly the media, make it annoying to share your daily struggle.”
