May 3rd, 2013 – Bimbo Akintola Talks Marriage At Age 42: “I’ll Marry When I Meet The Right Man”

Talented Nollywood actress Bimbo Akintola is gradually thinking about marriage as she approaches age 42.

The actress in a recent interview with Daily Sun said she is not in a rush to get married.

Bimbo Akintola said if she doesn’t find a man to love for the rest of her life, she won’t bother giving marriage a try.

Interview excerpt below

Do you sometimes think about marriage?

Of course, I do. Like every human being on earth, I do. Marriage is such a huge step, it’s deep. Marriage is the relationship that is the most difficult of all relationships. If I can’t see someone and say oh, yeah, I wanna be with this person for the rest of my life or even think it, I won’t do it. I say that all the time and people say oh my God, she said she would never marry, I can’t believe it. That’s not what I’m saying (Voice rising). I’m simply saying if I don’t see someone that I believe I can look at for the rest of my life, I won’t do it.

So, what do you want in a man?

Someone that has principles, integrity, someone that’s kind, someone that’s funny, someone that’s clean (Chuckles). Very clean! Someone that’s compassionate. You see, it’s not about being tall, dark and handsome, it’s not about money. We would work for it together or whatever. My mum didn’t marry my father a rich man. So, I don’t put much emphasis on money.
it’s not about money or looks, it’s about your heart and your head. So, for me o, I have to be in the person’s heart and the person’s head. Intellect and you know, human feelings.



In her long time in Nollywood, the actress simply stopped trying after a lot of headache finding the right man.

She was quoted saying she would rather wait a lifetime than to snatch another woman’s husband.

    Wait my dear until ur 52 may be by then you will understand that there is no perfect human being. Your looking for an inteligent but ur not near a wise lady if by now u don’t know that women make home and do things that will make their husband love them.
    Please advice urself before Menopause. Ur looking 50 already yet u still have those ideas.haba! Think,think andthink my dear lady.

    Chei! When will people start thinking? Fine girl u need to wait till ur 50 maybe u will understand no man is perfect and that u get what u bring in marriage. Ur even looking for an intelligent man but your not wise otherwise u would’ve advised urself long ago. Menopause is very close so you really does not need be advised to think well because your not looking very young any more.

    Ageing is a gradual relegate of holistic beauty for a woman. I wana ask if u av once had feelings for any man? Cos ur attenuation to the so called ‘ryt man’ has alot connection to my inquiry. U see, u av got all it takes to be addressed a woman and the potential to mend a man( especially one you slighly and inadvertently develop feelings for) to ur undying taste. ”If u say u will wait till life time, then suppose u intend to occupy a vacancy in the record of sinister nollywood”. Best of luck!!

    Frankly speaking, Nollywood if full of nefarious miscreants who called them selves Actor and ActreSses. From husband snatching to divorce yet Nollywood as an organization does nothing to address all the issues. I pray to God to change u all cos majority of u are demons. God bless u all!

May God help u as u do so ur testimony wil soon ring bell 2 whole world.

    Hello lovely angel,mine opinion is these because I believe every body is entitled with his or her opinion right?
    U are a big and well advised person in life right,
    U can’t get 100 o/o in men but 70 or 80 so if am to speak I would say u should go for any of the two and work out that 100percnt in the lucky one ok.
    Remember age is not on ur side but that doesn’t mean u should marry any one that comes ur way ok!
    Think carefully dear!
    I wish u all the best in life

    Hi Bimbo no amount of comment here will educate or decide for u if at 42 you are still single with a choice of man for a hubby. Though u may be going through emotional pains with pretence, but don’t u think its high time u start lecturing ur fellow ladies btween 30 yrs down to 22 on how to settle down on time? Please try this, it will do u a favour or visit me @ for more advise.

    In Nigeria women rush into marriage bcos of hardship. If u had financial security u won’t be so excited about marrying smone who isn’t what u want. What’s d point? Its better to marry late than to b a victim of abuse,humiliation n unhappiness. What’s d point?I love Bimbo n I know she is old enof to make dat decision when she feels she’s met d right person. She didn’t say she was looking for Mr perfect. What she pointed out are very basic which most men lack.okay u want her to accept a pig bcs she’s 42. Its better to b single than to b married but frustraTed. Yes 42 is a bit late for a lady bcos of fertility but God gives kids. I’m sure she wants to settle down but I’m also certain she’s tryingg to avoid not getting it right. Which one is better being single or divorced?

    She might be single forever< if she couldnt find the right Man on Earth being single sometime is better than be in a relationship or married. When God say Yes Nobody Can Say No. Bimbo Do whatever you Mind want you to do Never listen to Someone Advice Okay.. You're the Only Person Know why you're Still Single. A lot of 60yrs old Still single in America.

    • Caren

      July 12, 2013 at 6:31 PM

      Yeah Bimbo I agree with Segun. You are a feisty lady to have remained poised on your principle till this age. My humble advice is to think more of having a child, then marriage is entirely your final say. I was a victim of “I had to rather than I chose to do marriage” cos of family insolvency. Now I feel suicidal and trapped and resentful for the rest of my life. Just wish I can rejuvenate. The whole situation is my worst nightmare. So my love, pls be your authentic self.
