Nollywood thespian, skit maker and activist, Adebowale Adedayo better known as Mr Macaroni has claimed he has not been in any romantic relationship in the last 10 years.
The 29-year-old content creator, however, admitted that during the period he did not practice celibacy, as he has been sexually active.
Mr Macaroni made the disclosure during an interview with popular social media influencer, Adeherself on his podcast show “Chook Mouth”, where they discussed Nigerian men among other things.
During the show, Adeherself said: “99% percent of Nigerian men are possessive whether they have money in their pockets or not. Even your ordinary male friends are possessive of you,”
Reacting to the assertion that 99 percent of Nigerian men are possessive, Mr Macaroni insisted it is a perception and not reality.
He said: “Perception is different from reality. Even though we know most of the time, the perception will now want to take the shape of reality.
“Let me use myself as an example. You say 99% of Nigerian men are possessive. I am not possessive. Talking about dating, I have been single for over 10 years now.”
After the comic actor revealed he has not had a girlfriend for a decade, the show host and other guests were shocked and they sought to know if he was alright or had a problem.
Responding, the skit maker said: “You see, this is the culture I’m talking about. When I say it, you people don’t want to believe me. But it’s the truth.
“How can I be flirting and if I’m not in a relationship?
“If you want to ask me a question, ask directly. If you want to ask me if I’ve been having sex, absolutely yes. I am an adult. I already said it now. I have been having sex.”
