Actress Zainab Balogun cries out over her inability to find love in Lagos, reveals what she wants in her future husband


Nollywood actress, Zainab Balogun, who was born and bred in the United Kingdom but relocated back to Nigerian about 6 years ago has revealed in a recent interview how she has not been able to find an interesting man since she came back to Nigeria.

She said that she was shocked at Lagos men and advised them to hold a meeting to talk about whatever was wrong with them.


Zainab Balogun also used the opportunity to pass a message across to her future husband, saying,

“I am not in a relationship, but when you find my future husband, tell him that I am here waiting for him. I don’t know what is wrong with Lagos boys and I think the men should hold a meeting and ask one another what the problem is.

“Lagos is an interesting city when it comes to romance and I think we have our own unique language when it comes to love. However, since I got to Lagos about six years ago, I have not found anyone that has tickled my fancy. The few criteria I am looking for in a man are that he must be humorous, honest and transparent.

“He does not have to be rich, but he has to be aspirational because I am a very driven person and I spend a lot of time working. I cannot date a lazy person, we have to match each other when it comes to working hard.”

She explained that it wasn’t easy for her to adopt the lifestyle here in Lagos. It took her about three years to get her life accustomed to the way of the Lagosians and so now, she can boldly call herself a Lagosian.


Zainab Balogun says,

“I am a very aspirational and self-driven person, who is deeply rooted in family. I did not run away from home, I was born and raised in London, but I took the risk of moving back to Nigeria. I came back to Nigeria because I wanted to take on a new challenge. I have been in London all my life and felt that it was time to continue my career in Nigeria.

“My parents did not want me to come to Nigeria, but it felt like the right time to come to Nigeria. I have been in Nigeria for six years and I am happy with my decision. Moving to Lagos was not that easy and it took me about three years to adjust to the lifestyle. My main problem with Lagos was the traffic situation because I decided that I was going to drive myself. I also had to learn about the culture, but I eventually adapted.”
