Nollywood actor, Aremu Afolayan, isn’t a gigolo. The younger brother of renowned film maker, Kunle Afolayan, has revealed that his love for dating older women has nothing to do with money.
The talented actor and son of late legendary actor, Adeyemi Afolayan, a.k.a Ade Love, said he is not bothered by what people say about him, so far he is happy doing what they criticise him for.
In a recent interview, he said, “ I love ladies that are older than me. It’s my business because I don’t find the good thing, the real love and happiness from the young chaps.’
‘They said I’m a gigolo right? I owe no one any explanation for the way I live my life. They can criticize my film, but not my life. They said I do rich women for money, how I wish I can do that because a gigolo doesn’t get broke like this. If I’m a gigolo I will never sell my properties to do a film of N16 million. I sold three of my cars to raise the money. I am not what people think I am.’
‘Can you imagine a situation where I sleep with my girl now and she will go and sleep with one yahoo boy or my daddy’s friend again because she needs money? So, I have to follow someone who is not a girl as they say, but a lady that is at least older than me. This is what I like; my life, not their life. So, that’s no one’s business. You see, I owe no one any explanation concerning this. I can only explain to God and until He comes, I can continue.’
