Being single is no disease, says Dayo Amusa

Being single is no disease, says Dayo Amusa


By Ayo Onikoyi

Popular Yoruba actress, Dayo Amusa, who is fast becoming just as popular as a singer, is single and it appears this is not something that is giving her nightmarish nights if her recent post on social media is as good as anything to place a bet on.

In spite of being in her thirties, being single doesn’t seem to scare the cherubic faced actress, as she made it known to her Instagram followers, advising them not to let being single make them live miserable lives.


“When did being single become some sort of disease that everyone wants to get rid of ? Why does everyone think that being in a relationship or married is superior to being alone?,” she queried and went into a lengthy rhetoric about the beauty of being single and not letting societal pressure get in the way of one’s happiness

“ I don’t care if you’ve been single for several decades or several days. Remember, anything and everything is possible. You just need to get out of your own way and start believing that. Have standards – Don’t just date someone because you don’t want to be alone. You need to have the mindset that anyone who doesn’t want you is a fool, and so you wouldn’t want them anyway.  Use this time to learn about yourself – Often, people use being with others as an escape, an escape from themselves.

If you’re with others, then the focus is on them, not you. But how well do you really know yourself? Being single is a precious time that can be used to really get to know and love yourself. So spend the time getting to know you.

Discover new things. Work on personal growth.  Don’t chase anyone – And I mean it. Don’t even think about it! If they have to be chased, then they don’t want you. If someone is showing you that they would rather not be with you, shrug your shoulders and move on. It’s their loss not yours.

Learn to love your own company and be focused – You’re awesome! You’re cool! If you don’t believe me, then you are wrong. Everyone is perfect in their own way. The problem is many people especially single people don’t believe it. Focus on your great job, wonderful friends, your health, your car, food on your table — you name it,” she narrated, posting a gleeful picture of herself.
