Popular Yoruba actress, Opeyemi Arike Adetunji has talked about age in relationships and marriage.
“I can’t date or have anything to do with every woman’s man. It is a total turn off for me. I love men who are intelligent and good-looking. And yes, I can date a younger lover. There’s nothing wrong in marrying one who is younger than I am, after-all, age is nothing but a number. As long as the feeling is mutual, my happiness and that of my lover is key. I don’t care what people say”. She said
The need to sell myself pushed me into combining acting with producing, because most directors and producers prefer known faces for their jobs. When I am producing a movie and also part of the cast, it is always a difficult task. It is not easy I must confess; you have to be in character, and at the same time on your toes. Another challenge is getting funds, and the industry being filled with unpleasant rivalry. But I am grateful. Life is all about accepting the challenges that come along your way.
Now, everybody wants to know what is going on with me. My social life is also affected. I can’t post just anything or drop any comment on social media. But at the end of the day, I don’t have any regrets. It has been a beautiful journey with lots of lessons
