A fast-rising actress, Joy Tambou, has explained why she is presently not romantically linked with any man.
Tambou, who has already featured in two movies Diary of a Corper and Tattered, made the disclosure in a chat with The Sun.
Explaining her kind of man, the actress said, “I don’t need a perfect man. I want somebody I will build with. Don’t come pretending to be a lover boy and at the end of the day, you are not what you seem to be. It is painful and it really hurts when you love someone and just when you think that person is cool, he changes and brings out the other side.
“I am not looking for a billionaire; I believe in working together. Just come to me as you, not as someone else. Don’t bring somebody else’s car or something to show off if you want to be with me. Let me see your real person. I am me, I don’t pretend; I am just too real to fake my life.”
However, she said she has had to take a step back from love after encountering disappointment from two men.
Asked if she plans to tie the knot soon, Tambou said, “When the right man comes, we will do that.”
But she added, “I have loved before and it didn’t work out; when you love men too much, most times they misbehave. I have been hurt twice. Right now, I am not in love with anybody.”
