Seductively beautiful, fragile and provocative wave-making singer, Adokiye Kyrian, who became UN ambassador of Peace in less than five years of her climb onto the stage of music in Nigeria, is a hot item any day any time. She never ceases to amaze and seems never to run out of bag of tricks to mesmerise fans and haters alike.
The Love You Better and Kulumo crooner, who only turned 23 yesterday has been called many names, and most of those have sexuality hanging around them. So one could imagine my surprise and sheer incredulity when the singer opened up to me that she is actually a virgin.
We were chatting about love and she was trying to convince me she doesn’t believe in love. “ I really don’t like love”, she said “ I’m a career person, what I have for everyone including guys, is Agape love. Love is wicked and there is no real love, I’m young and living the life. Until I see one, I’m happy like this”
Then I felt she was beginning to sound like a woman who has had the love of her life run off with her best friend on her wedding day. I could not help but asked if she had been pained by love before. To which she retorted “Frankly, no”. But she told me she has seen enough of fake love around her to be cautious to whom she gives her heart .
“So, you aren’t in any relationship”, I queried. “ Yes, actually, I’m in a relationship with my career, architecture is my husband and music/movie my boyfriend”, she replied.
Curious as usual, I felt this rising star may just have no one pulling her chestnut out of the fire for her, so, I took a swing at her but got one back that got me real reeling.
“You mean you are not getting laid or what?”, I returned, to which she cut me short “ Haba, what is a young girl getting laid for. I’m still a virgin”. For a moment, I thought I hadn’t heard right and I guessed she thought so too. “Why are you quiet? Haven’t you seen a pretty virgin before? If you don’t believe me, you have seen one today. Any man that buys my mum the private jet I promised her, wins my heart” she said.
