Beautiful Nollywood actress and video vixen, Asakomhe Mary, aka Maryjane Benson has shared her opinion concerning wooing a man which is considered a taboo in this part of the world.
In Nigeria, it is considered a taboo to a lady to woe a man as well as propose to a man. It is considered acts which should be done by men alone.
In a recent chat with Potpourri, the actress who began her career in 2011 spoke about relationship issues and her take on dating.
She revealed that ever since she has been in the industry, she has encountered the good, the bad and the ugly and she has learnt so many things, including shelving inhibitions most girls grapple with.
When asked if she could make the first move to date a guy, Maryjane said;
“Yes, I can go out of my way to approach a guy I really like, I don’t see anything wrong in that, if the guy doesn’t make the move, I can make it.” Sometimes men and women miss each other because of fear of who’s to make the first move. It may be that the guy likes me but shy to make the move. But if I make the move and the guy doesn’t respond in kind or refuses, I will leave him alone. I can’t force a guy to go out with me. I’m very emotional and I have cried for love before,”
She however refused to admit that video vixens are cheap and loose as widely believed by so many people:
It is not true that video vixens are loose and tend to lure musicians to bed. Though, I can only speak for myself but many video vixens I know are not loose. Besides, they do not even have the time to go about luring artistes to bed because the job is so stressful,” she quips. Maryjane Benson has featured in films like Magic Queen, Living with a Stranger, Room 440, Lustful Desire, The Graduates, The Johnsons TV Series, Jenifa’s Diary and many more.
