Actor IK Ogbonna probably drawing from the experience he has garnered over the years, has asked men never to make looks their priority when scouting for women for a long term relationship/marriage.
The handsome script interpreter counselled men to look beyond the superfluous things on the physical anatomy of a woman in an interview with Sunday Scoop.
“In my opinion, everyone should have standards. Men should also have principles. They should not just go for any lady because she has a good body or a cute face. There is more to it. There has to be a connection.”
The actor also stated that he doesn’t believe a woman should live in a certain way in order to attract men.
He said, “I am not of the opinion that people should do anything to attract anyone. One can look helpless and hopeless, and still be attractive. There is always someone out there for any type of person. Build yourself as an individual and the right person will come to you.”
Shifting the focus to his academic credentials, IK stated that the honourary doctorate he got from the Institut Superieur De Technologies Et De Management in the Benin Republic means a lot to him.
He said, “The school reached out to me that they want to honour me for my achievements and contributions to the industry. I took it because it is a great thing of joy. Adding something like that to one’s CV is what one should embrace.”
Speaking about the lesson he has drawn from his failed marriage, he ad this to say, “I don’t like bringing my relationship to the media because I feel everyone deserves a right to their private lives. I barely ever talk about it on social media.
“The most important thing is that we are not together, and that is public knowledge already. It does not mean we are enemies. She is a good friend of mine and we have an amazing son together.
“There are no rules to a relationship or marriage. Different situations sustain different relationships and marriages. People are different and one cannot always apply what one learnt in a previous relationship to a new one. However, understanding and communication should be general.”
