Popular Yoruba actress, Ayo Adesanya, recently turned a year older and released a bunch of cool pictures; as well as visiting the Royal Diamond Orphanage to celebrate 20 years of her being on stage.
She is in the news again, and this time she explains how much men still make advances at her in spite of being 45.
Adesanya who was previously married to fellow actor, Goriola Hassan, is a mother of one.
In a recent exclusive with Punch, she revealed that in the course of marking her 45th birthday just last week, loads of men still signified intentions for her like bees and nectar.
‘[And] although I am ‘old school’, when it comes to dating, I look before leaping,’ she told Punch; as though saying she’d rather take her time than jump into just any relationship with anyone.
She also believes in love. ‘If I get struck by cupid’s arrow, I would follow my heart desires,’ she said.
‘I cannot say I am not open to love because I have not seen it all and I believe that the best is yet to come.’
‘I can fall in love but I am not searching. I get a lot of advances from men and it is even worse now with social media as people can easily reach you. All they need to do is to call you on Facebook. I will not lie, it is very crazy.’
The unending attentions she gets regardless, Adesanya is bent on taking her time so she doesn’t end up with an imposter.
She reveals that often the many attentions, from these admirers, are just fronts to mask fake motives.
‘A lot of people do not have genuine intentions. As a person, sometimes the pressure is so much that it would make you wonder what the clamour is all about. I believe that when something is good and nice, people would want to be a part of it. I may look sweet and sexy but I am ‘old school’ when it comes to dating. I look before I leap. I know where I am coming from and I have learnt a lot. I know my onions and when men approach me for a date, I know how I handle them; I have a defence mechanism for them.’
The light-skinned actress also doesn’t think a man’s physical looks should determine if she gets to be with him.
‘[Physical appearances don’t determine], I love a man with a good heart and a good sense of humour because I love to laugh,’ she told Punch.
On plans to reunite with her ex-husband, Adesanya shot down the possibilities saying:
‘I believe my ex-husband and I do not have a lot in common so it might not be so easy for us to get back together. I don’t see it happening, we have both gone our separate ways and we have parted for good.’
