Why I’m still a bachelor at 44 – Actor Nonso Diobi


Nollywood actor, Nonso Diobi, says his peripatetic lifestyle has affected his dating life and kept him single.

Speaking in a chat with BBC Igbo, the 44-year-old said that he is obviously very interested in women but that not all of them understand the perks of his job.

“Talks about wife and girlfriend interest me but I’ll only have the woman I’m destined to. What I found is that not everyone can be patient with actors like me. We hardly have time. From dawn till dusk, I’m on the road.

“It’s either one country/state or another. I hardly remain in one location for too long. And I don’t even stay in my house. I live like a sojourner. Of course, there’s someone for whom I have a thing but I won’t discuss that publicly,” he said.

The ‘To Live a Lie ‘ actor, however, revealed that there is a woman he’s dating presently.

“That’s personal. Everyone knows I don’t bring my private life into work. But there’s definitely someone. We have a thing for each other, although we don’t know how it’s going to work for us just yet.

“So far, it gives me joy that I act and people watch; commend me. It’s like a lifetime satisfaction. Acting is basically storytelling on video. People who want my place are many. So it’s clear that I have to work harder. It’s not easy.
