REAL REASON WHY GENEVIEVE NNAJI IS STILL SINGLE


Genevieve Nnaji in Olisa Adibua’s latest episode of The Truth has disclosed the reason why she isn’t married. Genevieve said she isn't married because she is yet to find the right man. And about men being scared she’s very successful, she said she never wants to be around such men because they are boys, and what she needs is a MAN.

Read the interview below....

Olisa: Talking about her first love;
Genevieve: He was a very, very, handsome man. A long time ago, very handsome man, trust me.

Olisa: Let's talk about relationships - are you currently in one? Are you looking at settling down at some point? I know you've heard that question a lot of times but tell us the truth now.
Genevieve: I think everyone is prioritizing and so am I. It's not like I don't want to settle down, want somebody and until I find that person, there's no thoughts of me settling down. I'm not looking, I'm a woman, and we are not allowed to look.

Olisa: When was the last time you had a boyfriend... do you have one now?
Genevieve: I don't have a boyfriend now.
