I married at age of 18 because I was ready and I was already a millionaire - Actress Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde (video)

Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde recently had an interview with BBC Yoruba said any lady who is not financially stable should not consider getting married at all because she is automatically preparing herself to be imprisoned in the union.

Speaking in a recents interview with BBC Yoruba, Omotola said, "One must apply wisdom or common sense in everything one does. People cannot say that because I married at 18, therefore they can also do it. The question is, ‘are you ready for marriage’? When I was at that age, I was ready. I had been working since I was 15-years-old and I had become a millionaire at the age of 18. That is a fact that a lot of people don’t know".

The actress said this when she was ask if she would allow any of her children ti marry at a very tender age of 18 as she did.

Responding, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde said

"I had my own money. I was not dependent on any man. Moreover, my father died early, so I was already responsible for my younger siblings. I was like their mother at that time, so I was very mature and financially prepared. One should not marry a man when one is not financially stable. 

If one does that, one would be going into slavery or better still, prison. If any of my children, after considering all these factors, say they are ready for marriage, we (parents) would meet the person and if we like them, we would give them our blessings".
