Popular Nollywood actress Dayo Amusa has expressed that ninety percent of African men are more interested in marrying plus size women. The actress made this known in a recent interview while talking about marriage.
In an interview with The Punch, Dayo Amusa noted that she has always been comfortable in her body. She explained that she realised that not all fingers are equal, adding that everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
According to her, ninety percent of African men want to marry plus size women because they are acoomodating. She further added that men might go for slim women because of the slay mama trend on social media.
She said: “Yes, I know they do. Ninety per cent of African men would go for plus size women because we are very ‘accommodating’. I think the only reason a man would go for a slim lady is due to the ‘slay mama’ trend on social media, but when men want to settle, they go for plus size women.”
While taking about marriage, the actress noted that she doesn’t feel being single is a diease. She explained that many people got married at an early age and they still had a collapse in their marriages.
Amusa said: “I cannot crucify people for their opinion. I feel that being a single lady is not a disease and you should not be cast out because some people feel that because you attain some certain age, you ought to be married. We have a lot of people who got married at an early stage and the marriage broke up, there are some that wish that their marriages are over. For me, I always say that it is not a do or die affair.”
Talking about being comfortable in her skin:
“As far as I am concerned, I have always been very comfortable in my own body. I realised that fingers are not equal and everybody has their own way of thinking and they are entitled to their own opinion, so I cannot crucify anyone about how they feel about my size. However, I have always been comfortable in my skin.
It has always been easy for me to get clothes I like, but there are times that you see some trendy outfits that would not fit because I am plus sized. Despite that, there are a lot of beautiful products for plus size women that would not even look good on slim girls.”
