Media personality, Chioma Omeruah popularly known as Chigul, says she is tired of being approached by men in their 20s who claim to like older women.
She said her ideal man should be at least 40 years old.
The comedienne and actress made this known as a guest on ‘Toke Moments,’ a show hosted by popular On-Air-Personality, Toke Makinwa.
The 46-year-old divorcee said she could no longer date younger men because the relationship would be awkward, noting that she tried dating a younger man in the past but regretted it.
On why she could not date younger men, she said, “What are you going to be calling me? Mummy, dear, aunty, or sister if you’re not 40?”
She added, “They said try younger men, I did and it was not a good idea. I said I’m not doing it. If you want to step to me, check your passport for your date of birth. If it’s not 1970 upward, don’t come my way, don’t approach me.”
In a revelation in 2017, Chigul said she got married as a 33-year-old virgin but got divorced after a year, adding that she held herself responsible for the union’s crash.
On what she could have done differently in the marriage, she told Toke: “For me, I think there’s a lot I learned in the process and coming out of it. There are so many things I think now that I would have done differently. Maybe I could have said that instead of that.”
Asked if she was considering remarrying, Chigul said, “I’ve always wanted a companion and this is just me as Chioma saying I yearn for companionship, I yearn for having my person. I want my own person but the thing is that same person can probably stab you with the deepest cut of your life.”
