COMMUNITY Tell My Husband I am Waiting here! – Zainab Balogun
Zainab Balogun, Nigerian actress, model and TV Presenter was born and raised in London but relocated to Nigeria six years ago to reinvent herself.
“I am a very aspirational and self – driven person who is deeply rooted in family. I did not run away from home, I was born and raised in London, but I took the risk of moving back to Nigeria.
I came back to Nigeria because I wanted to take on a new challenge. I have been in London all my life and felt it was time I continue my career in Nigeria.
“My parents did not want me to come to Nigeria, but it felt like the right time to come to Nigeria. I have been in Nigeria for Six years and I am happy with my decision. Moving to Lagos was not that easy and it took me about three years to adapt to the lifestyle.
“My main problem with Lagos was the traffic situation because I decided I was going to drive myself. I also had to learn about the culture, but I eventually adapted.
Zainab said since she came back to Nigeria she has found a man that interest her and that she is not in a relationship and has this message for her future husband.
“I am not in a relationship, but when you find my future husband, tell him that I am here waiting for him. I don’t know what is wrong with Lagos boys and I think the men should hold a meeting and ask one another what the problem is.
“Lagos is an interesting city when it comes to romance and I think we have our own unique language when it comes to love.
“However, since I got to Lagos about six years ago, I have not found anyone that has tickled my fancy. The few criteria that I am looking for in a man are that he must be humorous, honest and transparent.
“He does not have to be rich, but he has to be aspirational because I am a very self – driven person and I spend a lot of time working. I can not date a lazy person, we have to match each other when it comes to working hard.” She said.
