Nollywood actress Happiness Effiong popularly known as Shakira opened up to the Sun on why she canâ€™t date Nigerian men.
â€ I found my first love at the age of 22 and we broke up. So, Iâ€™m not in love with any guy now, because Nigerian guys are not worth falling in love with. They are game players. I have been heartbroken thrice and I wouldn’t want to suffer another one.I donâ€™t think it was my fault. It was the guys. Thatâ€™s why some girls choose to be lesbians.â€
On being a lesbianâ€¦
â€œGod forbid. I never thought about being a lesbian when men disappointed me. There was a day a rich woman saw me at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos and she attempted to lure me into sleeping with her, but I refused and she slapped me and I retaliated. She promised to buy me a car, get me a good apartment, and also get me lead roles in movies. But I rejected her offer. The next time she saw me, she tried once again to convince me to sleep with her, but I warned her to stay away, so she slapped me and I did not waste time to retaliate. That was how she gave me some space. Unfortunately, the next time I saw her, she was with an upcoming actress.â€
