During the week, social media was agog after plus-size model Monalisa Stephen called out a young woman who bullied her for refusing to marry her elder brother.
Inside Nollywood reached out to the busty model cum fashion designer and she narrated the genesis of the drama, and why she is still single even at 26.
Hear her: “I used to feel bad and depressed about my big boobs, but that’s way behind me now. I just smile and wave it off. So, sometime ago, a lady sent me a message on Facebook that her brother based abroad wanted to marry me, but I declined. She was so persistent and it was getting on my nerves. I told her I can’t marry someone I don’t know, and that we should give it time. But she didn’t agree.
“Then, she started writing hateful comments on my pictures (on Facebook) but I would delete them and ignore her. I eventually deleted that account because fraudsters were using my pictures to scam people. But I was surprised to see her come for me on my new account. I didn’t know she still hated me.”
On why she keeps rejecting eligible suitors even at 26, Monalisa said she is not ready to settle down yet. “I’m not ready for marriage. Marriage is a big thing that we shouldn’t rush into. Marriage is beautiful but it’s not an achievement, so I’m not thinking about it for now. I don’t know when I will be ready,” she asserted.
