Actress Ashionye Ugboh-Raccah
It’s now beginning to be a trend amongst the female Nollywood artistes to reach across the border for a suitor. Actress Ashionye Ugbo-Racca, who is married to a white man in a recent interview talked about her decision to marry her friend of 11 years.
What would you say marriage have done for you?
Marriage have matured me. As a single woman, there were certain things I did that I can’ t do now. Marriage and the birth of my child have made me a lot more patient and matured person. I am a woman now. There are some things that I look at now as a wife and a mother, and I ignore. But back then, I wasn’t matured enough and I thought I was. I have been matured for over three years now. How did you meet your husband?
I met my husband in 2001, we have known each other for over 11years. We met here, in Lagos. Is it a new trend where Nollywood stars are falling for the ‘Oyinbos’?
This is not about going for the “Oyinbo’s” or the ‘Oyinbos’ coming for us. It’s about the relationship. It’ s not a matter of whether your husband is black or white. It depends on the relationship you have built over the years with him.
It depends on a lot of of things. And by the way, how many Nollywod actresses are married to the Oyinbos? I don’t see colour as an individual in marriage. My husband doesn’t see colour either. I believe that the actresses that you are referring to, and their husbands don’t see colour too. That’s why they decided to marry. The world is one colour to me, but don’t ask me which colour.
You might see my husband as a white man, but I don’t see him that way. After all, my husband was born in Kano and he speaks Hausa fluently. He is a Nigerian as much as you are a Nigerian too. So, I don’t see colour in our marriage. What was the reaction of your parents when you introduced him to you?
There was no opposition. My dad knew I have been in a relationship with him for awhile. So, there was no reason for him to oppose the marriage. He was very happy to welcome another son-in-law into our family. The relationship between my husband and my father was fantastic. Now that you are back in Nollywood, have the scripts started flying into your hands?
I have gotten some offers for movies that will shot early next year. And I have accepted to star in those movies. They are two movies at the moment.

It actally doesn't matter what colour the skin is. What matters is the inner attitude. But left to me, i can't marry a white guy. I am an African woman and i treasure my culture very much. Marrying someone means understanding me to the fullest. And moreover African men love their women better without conditions. Reply this thread

i love white women and i have date 3 white one tunisian and two european,the sex is good but i love nigerian women too but mine problem is that they pretend alots and fun to be with. but i once dated a sparnish girl buthen it turned out that she doesnt take a shower regularly!
Different colors with different Ideals.For Naija man to marry a white lady He has to change his way is thoughts and behavior to live happily ever after. same goes for the women. Reply this thread

...to mention that your husband is probably a man tired of life, who's lived many llives before with kids, grandkids, ex-wives the age of your own mother and all.
And now that all white women are running from him, he got himself a nice, young, beautiful and fresh black girl the age of his own grand kids.
that's how it usually works. good luck further!

the nigeria women living in EUP and USA, never want to marry to a white man, while the nigerians women living in nigeria are looking for them.is because those that lives in abroad dont not know so much about the white and they are not enligten, hope she having a nice time,oyinbo are not god.

This is a section of an interview i read in the vanguard. She spoke about her new movie and Tinsel and lots of other things. It is amazing how only this is singled out. FRom these lines, she wasn't bragging, just responding to questions asked. It is apparent a lot of people commenting didn't read the story at all. Reply this thread

Congratulations, I wish you well. It's good that your husband speaks hausa fluently so he is quite familiar with Nigeria. and don't mind carnal minded people. Is life all about sex. Can't you be spiritual. Yes sex is important within the confines of marraige and I repeat within the confines of marraige. Can't u just use your brain to proffer other things. Please people be intelligent and don't let yr life or marraige be all about sex. Give your life to Jesus and you'll be able to control insatiable desires that get you into trouble and give you incurable diseases. Reply this thread
