Nollywood actress Allwell Ademola has shared the reasons behind her single status at the age of 41.
The renowned actress, who recently celebrated her birthday, discussed her dating life during an interview on her colleague Biola Bayo’s YouTube show, “Talk to B.”
Allwell revealed that she had come close to getting married in 2005, but tragically, the love of her life passed away. Recounting the painful experience, she shared that she was on a call with him when he was shot, and the incident left her deeply traumatized for a period of two years.
Reflecting on relationships, Allwell mentioned that she is aware of people who choose to remain unmarried and enjoy solitude. She also highlighted the diversity of preferences among individuals, including those who desire marriage but not parenthood.
She explained, “I was supposed to have gotten married in 2005, but he died in November of that same year. I was talking to him on the phone when he got shot. I lost my mind for 2 years.”
