We shared with you a few days ago that Ghallywood actress, Yvonne Nelson was the celebrity cover for the July issue of Genevieve magazine! Click here if you missed it!
For the cover story, the talented actress talked about dating Iyanya, and the nature of the relationship she had with Ice Prince and John Dumelo, but the most interesting part was her views on Nigerian men when asked about her choice of nationality for her next man. In answering the question, she however confirmed her views on Nigerian men saying they ‘can lie for the whole of Africa.’
Read excerpts from the interview below:
On the nationality of her next man:
“I don’t know yet. I can’t say I want a Nigerian, or a Gambian or a Cameroonian. When it happens, it happens. But Nigerian men can lie. Nigerian guys can lie for the whole of Africa. They will come with all the lies because they know that women respond to the things they hear. The lies are just so crazy. And I’m not some 19 year-old who just wants to have fun. I’m not in that place anymore. So I’m taking my time to get it right.”
On dating Iyanya and possibility of getting back together:
“We did have a relationship. I loved him at a point. It just didn’t work out…
But on dating Iyanya again, she said: Never! It’s like eating your vomit. No way! It’s not happening ever. As a matter of fact I’m not interested in anybody in the arts, because it is not the right place to invest time and emotions. A lot of entertainers have so much on their table, so they would not give the real thing. I know my values; I am loyal and straightforward, but a lot of entertainers are not like that. They would just lie to you and waste your time. That is because, like pilots, entertainers go around a lot. In every country a pilot goes to, he can decide to have a wife or girlfriend. So they can actually lead like a hundred different lives and none of these women will know.”
On her rumored relationship with Ice Prince:
“I wasn’t in a relationship with Ice Prince; he was just a friend to me. I don’t understand the kind of attention he was trying to draw to himself by claiming we had a relationship. If he wanted to say the truth, why didn’t he just say it from the beginning? All along he’d been saying that we’re friends and all of a sudden he turns around to claim that it was more than a friendship. C’mon!”
