Veteran Nollywood actress Shaffy Bello Akinrimisi has revealed why she cannot be a stay-at-home wife, even if she settles down with a billionaire.

The actress and singer in a chat with Stephanie Coker on the ‘Me, Her & Everything Else podcast, Shaffy said that even though a man is meant to provide for the home, a woman should also assist financially.

Shaffy said she will not “demote” herself to be a stay-at-home wife, or date a man who will not allow her to work.

“I think a man was raised to be a provider. To be the one; the king. If you are the king, usually people go to the king for direction,” she said.

“So as a woman, I want to have my own. So that way, I can be of help when you need me. But I must have my own. I can not date a man who says stop working.

“But to be honest with you, even if you are a billionaire and you put me in a hole, I still have to do something. Because the reason you fell in love with me is because of who I am now. So I am not going to demote myself because of that.”

Shaffy Bello grew up in Nigeria but moved to the United States of America in 1987 where she completed her education; she celebrates her birthday every October 9th.

The excellent screen goddess got the spotlight when she first shot into the entertainment scene when she featured vocals in a 1997 hit song by Seyi Sodimu titled “Love Me Jeje”.

Her appearance in the hit song which enjoyed massive air-play soon endeared her to Nigerian music lovers at the time, but alas, without warning, Bello soon went off the entertainment radar, to the dismay of many.

Years later, the talented actress returned to our screens with a bang, this time as a more matured and gorgeous woman.

Shaffy Bello who can be called a risk taker who isn’t afraid to try new things wasn’t perturbed with the developments in the movie industry when she made her bold entrance into the Nigerian movie scene.

Initially, it looked like movie lovers didn’t approve of her, following her sudden disappearance in the ’90s but she remained determined and continued to make great movies. Looking back now, Bello has morphed into a sought-after actress and a household name who has become a darling to a lot of movie lovers globally, with a teaming fan base numbering millions.

She got her first major role in a Yoruba film “Eti Keta” and has since become a force to reckon with in several roles in both Yoruba and English movies.

Some of her notable roles include Joanne Lawson in the TV series “Tinsel” and Adesua in “Taste of Love”.

In 1995, Shaffy got married to Akinrimisi, and they had two children; a son, Ashton, and a daughter, Ashley, but their union hit the rocks in 2020.

In February, Shaffy said she wants a companion — but not interested in getting married.
