“Why I don’t want to get married to my partner”- Iyabo Ojo

Actress Iyabo Ojo has said that she is happy in her relationship with Paul Okoye, also known as Paulo even though they are not married.

They believe that marriage is “overrated,” which is why they don’t want to be married to one another.

Featuring veteran singer Charly Boy as a guest, the mother of two spoke on the most recent episode of her TV show, Iyabo Ojo TV.

During the discussions, she said: “I am enjoying my relationship. I am enjoying it. Luckily for me, he [Paulo Okoye] also doesn’t believe in marriage. We feel like it is overrated.”

Charly Boy concurred: “I agree with you that marriage is overrated. My son called me the other day and said, ‘Dad, why can’t people have a contract and say we will just do five years in marriage and if we are lucky and happy, we renew the contract?’

“It sounds funny but you know, there are different coping mechanisms because these days, marriage is not what it used to be when our parents got married. Marriage is a little bit muddled up now. And people are a little bit more individualistic than they used to be before. Nobody wants to serve anybody. Everybody wants to get their own. So, that’s where the problem starts.”
