Seductively beautiful, fragile and provocative wave-making singer, Adokiye Kyrian, who became UN ambassador of Peace in less than five years of her climb onto the stage of music in Nigeria, is a hot item any day any time. She never ceases to amaze and seems never to run out of bag of tricks to mesmerise fans and haters alike.
The Love You Better and Kulumo crooner, who only turned 23 yesterday has been called many names, and most of those have sexuality hanging around them. So one could imagine my surprise and sheer incredulity when the singer opened up to me that she is actually a virgin.
We were chatting about love and she was trying to convince me she doesnâ€™t believe in love. â€œ I really donâ€™t like loveâ€, she said â€œ Iâ€™m a career person, what I have for everyone including guys, is Agape love. Love is wicked and there is no real love, Iâ€™m young and living the life. Until I see one, Iâ€™m happy like thisâ€
Then I felt she was beginning to sound like a woman who has had the love of her life run off with her best friend on her wedding day. I could not help but asked if she had been pained by love before. To which she retorted â€œFrankly, noâ€. But she told me she has seen enough of fake love around her to be cautious to whom she gives her heart .
â€œSo, you arenâ€™t in any relationshipâ€, I queried. â€œ Yes, actually, Iâ€™m in a relationship with my career, architecture is my husband and music/movie my boyfriendâ€, she replied.
Curious as usual, I felt this rising star may just have no one pulling her chestnut out of the fire for her, so, I took a swing at her but got one back that got me real reeling.
â€œYou mean you are not getting laid or what?â€, I returned, to which she cut me short â€œ Haba, what is a young girl getting laid for. Iâ€™m still a virginâ€. For a moment, I thought I hadnâ€™t heard right and I guessed she thought so too. â€œWhy are you quiet? Havenâ€™t you seen a pretty virgin before? If you donâ€™t believe me, you have seen one today. Any man that buys my mum the private jet I promised her, wins my heartâ€ she said.
