Nigerian serial entrepreneur and fashionista, Toyin Lawani, has revealed that marriage is not a priority. According to her, she left her first marriage so as to chase her dreams.
She made this known in a recent interview with Thisday Newspapers. In her words:
“Yes, I repeat it marriage is not a priority. Most people feel like those who are single mums like me are cursed or we’re not to be respected.
I speak to several families and even have people that I impact their lives. Do you know how many salaries that I pay every month? Some men cannot do that. I pay almost 100 people salary every month.
Then you will now tell me that because you are married you’re better than me. You that are in your husband’s house and being fed and at the same time being slapped every day.
If you are contributing to that family do you think they will be slapping you every day? We all learn from experience. I have been married before but because I wanted something more for myself I was able to leave the marriage and chase my dreams.”
While a lot of her fans support her words, some condemned it.
