Nigerian actress, Allwell Ademola, has said that she fell in love with her late husband’s best man, two years after he was shot dead by armed robbers, because she was heartbroken.
Allwell, who is also the granddaughter of Nigeria’s first Chief Justice, Justice Adetokunbo Ademola, revealed to The Sun that her late husband’s best man was her best friend even before she met her husband.
“Yes, I lost my man two months to our wedding. Armed robbers shot him and I mourned him for two years, and then I moved on with our best man. Yes, it’s true. He was my best friend even before I met my fiancé, so I planned to make my best friend the best man at my wedding.
“Unfortunately and fortunately, his fiancée jilted him at about the same time I lost my fiancé; so, he felt maybe, God didn’t want us as just friends. So, he proposed to me. What do you expect from a heartbroken woman at her lowest? I fell for it,” Allwell said.
The voluptuous actress confessed that her looks might have contributed in bringing her this far in Nollywood.
“I guess I didn’t know and couldn’t appreciate what I had back then. Now I know that there are very few people that have my kind of body and endowments. Little wonder producers are always on the lookout for me,” she said.
She added that growing up as a plus size girl was not a challenge for her.
“My boobs were never a challenge to me. I have been acting with them since I was a child. Variety is the spice of life. Not everybody is meant to be slim or have small breasts. Who will act the size 16 roles if everyone is a size eight?” Allwell said.
