‘I don’t need a man or child in my life’ – Amara Maduka says
Nollywood Nigerian actress Amara Maduka begs to be different from Every other average Nigerian woman against all odds and looks forward to settling down with a man to start up a family, however.
In a recent interview with Saturday Sun, the Anambra State-born thespian who is currently on a movie location says she has all it takes to make life interesting for her and there’s no need for a man in her life.
She said: “I have a type and I can’t settle for less even if I tried. It’s not about the basic things for me and most people are just that; basic. It has to be so much more than sex and money for me to be that much interested in a man. Because I can give myself orgasm and I also make money for myself, so a man has to be so much more to impress me. In fact, at this point, I’m not interested in marriage or having kids. But in the future, I’ll see if anything changes. I think of it this way if we are all having kids, who will help raise the ones in the streets? People don’t even adopt anymore. Everyone just wants to have kids but getting pregnant and having a baby doesn’t make you a good mother though.”
Asked how she withstands the pressure from home to get married and beget grandchildren, Maduka gave her parents kudos for being an understanding type.
“Not a single pressure. Home got a different mindset and I’m so blessed to come from the family I come from. We were raised to have our own mindset. And that’s the best thing you can do for a child, in my opinion.I went to a boarding school so I didn’t really spend much time being at home to bond with my parents, but the little times in-between holidays and visiting days were very dear to me. Then, as for grandchildren for my parents, they already have from my siblings. I’m a proud Aunty.”
