I can’t accept marriage proposal that doesn’t come with a car – Olive Utalor



In a world full of single mothers and unmarried women, it’s probably
unfathomable why on earth a woman would shun a marriage proposal.
is presumably what any woman would jump at but it seems this does not
apply to budding Nollywood actress, Olive Utalor, who turned down a
marriage proposal from her fiancée of many years. Her reason? The
proposal did not come with a car for her.
“On my birthday last
year he promised me a car and now he wants me, Olive Utalor to get
married to him without a car, it’s not proper. I don’t care if he has
supported me through school. I can’t be trekking under the sun when I am
somebody ‘s wife. He should go and look for his class,” the actress
blurted out in a chat when Potpourri reached her to find out why she
rejected a marriage proposal.
It was gathered that the proposal
was made by the fiance, who is a civil servant, a primary school teacher
to be precise, on his birthday expecting his girlfriend would be
pleasantly surprised and accept but her reaction so much disconcerted
him that he contemplated taking his own life. In fact, he was said to
have stood on a road perplexed, waiting for any car to run into him.
whole scene had taken place on a busy working day at a shopping mall in
Asaba, Delta State before gaping eyes of many passers-by. The
heartbroken boyfriend had thought he had everything perfectly planned
and the timing just right, so, rejection was the last thing on his mind
but his sweetheart of many years had other ideas.
“I can’t pretend
that he is right for me. Yes, he saw me through the early stages of my
tertiary education but that doesn’t mean we are right for each other. If
he cannot get me a car there can be marriage. I’m not being callous,
I’m just being true to myself,” she said smugly.
The Delta
State-born actress is quietly making her imprint on the landscape of the
movie industry as she has featured in some really good films. Some of
the most recent films she featured are Yahoo King, Hope of Glory, Loving
Soul, My Pregnant Daughter, Cursed and many others.
