Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) housemate Doyin David claims she is unable to wed a man who resides on the Lagos mainland.
Lagos is separated into an island and a mainland. Major locations like Lekki, Victoria Island, and Ikoyi are located on the island, and numerous other LGAs in the state are located on the mainland.
Doyin stated that her partner needs to be thoughtful, kind, and “someone that is giving” in a recent interview on Channels Television’s Rubbin’ Minds.
Because “everything that I do is situated on the island,” the reality star claimed she is unable to marry a man who resides on the mainland.
Someone considerate is important to me. If you have a considerate partner, they think about you before every action that they take,” she said.
The family is a very important consideration, and they consider how it will affect you and them. Consequently, someone who is thoughtful, kind, and generous. I am not about that broken life. That is just the truth.
“I do not live on the mainland. I do not think there is anything bad about living on the mainland. If I am going to date you, you are going to have to move to the island. Just because that is what I am used to. It is also closer to everything I do. He will move to the island.
“I am not going to move to the mainland. That is just me, he could find himself another wife if he wanted someone who would reside on the mainland. But that is not going to be me.”
But Doyin stated that she is open to considering an alternative, which would be moving to the city with her partner.
“We are going to find a place that is central for both of us. Since the majority of my activities are centered around the island, she remarked.
“It will be strange for me to now pack my whole life and move to the mainland because I am getting married.
“I am not going to do that. And it is not that I do not respect my husband; rather, I am saying, let us figure out something that benefits us both. “If we can come to a compromise, maybe somewhere that is both accessible for us.”
