Famous Nigerian comedienne cum film actress, Anita Alaire Afoke Asuoha, better known as Warri Pikin, has disclosed some personal details about herself and what led her to make such decisions.
In a chat with media personality, Chude Jideonwo, Warri Pikin stated that she chose to become celibate till her wedding night after her ex-boyfriend shattered her heart in the university.
The mother of three said after the sad incident, she vowed that no man would see her “nakedness again” till her wedding night and chose to serve God with all her might and forget relationships.
Warri Pikin who is currently on honeymoon with her husband, Ikechukwu Asuoha after they renewed their marital vows, 10 years after their got married in 2013, added that she met her husband immediately after university in 2012.
She said they met at a church in Abuja during her mandatory National Youth Service Corps, NYSC and got married immediately afterwards.
The Comedienne also revealed that she was a professional dancer who even won the Maltina Dance All competition but couldn’t pursue her career in that light because she attended a strict private school. Her words:
“I got married in 2012 immediately after graduating from University. I met my husband at a Winners’ camp in Abuja.
“E get one boy wey break my heart [during my university days], I come give my life to Christ. I said, you know what? I’m not doing men anymore. I will serve God.
The story is now funny but really it wasn’t a sweet moment. I decided that I wasn’t going to date any man again and I would not go to any party. It was my God and my books nothing else. At that moment I wasn’t interested in my talent again which affected my plans of going to Lagos.
I resolved to be celibate and decided that no man will see my nakedness until my wedding night.
“Funny enough my plan before was to go to Lagos immediately after graduation. I was a professional dancer but school hindered me. I went to a private school where you only have three exits in a semester. Even when I won the Maltina Dance All, I was angry because I couldn’t defend my title.
Most times when I have a function to dance the school announces exams or tests. Our school fee was not small at all and my father even though he would allow you to dance but you must apply sense to everything. I thought to myself that after school I will go to my aunt’s place in Lagos and focus on my dancing career. Abuja was never in view at that time.”
