For Nigerian singer Toby Grey, money is not a major factor when it comes to being with the man of her dreams and this, she has clearly stated in her recent interview.
When it comes to women and relationships, it is common knowledge that no particular formula is applied. While some prefer their men tall, rich and handsome, others have an entirely different preference. Nevertheless, almost every woman would prefer a man that offers some financial security. While the level of security may vary on the type of woman, it is a common factor for almost every woman wants this.
As the popular saying goes, one man's food is another man's poison. Nigerian singer, Toby Grey has come out to share her own idea of the kind of relationship she likes. According to her, she doesn't mind being with poor man as long as he is rich in every other thing. She believes being rich is not all about having money.
In a recent interview with Vanguard, she said: "“You know a rich man can be poor in knowledge and money is not something that people cannot have. Knowledge or let me say commonsense is something that is really hard to acquire. If he is poor in commonsense, then it’s a NO but if he is poor in money, it doesn’t mean he can’t be rich in money. So, of course I can marry a poor man if he is very rich in every other thing,”
The 23-year-old singer believes being in a romantic relationship goes beyond factors like physical attraction and wealth especially when going into a long term relationship. She said:
“If the partners are not in it for a long term relationship, then the goal is a bit dicey. If it’s not for the long term, many people will choose s*x and money because it’s temporal. But if it’s for the long term and you are planning to get married to this person, then love is the most important thing because at the end of the day when everything fades, the only thing you will have left is the love and the friendship you started with. I learnt that from my parents. At the end of the day, love fades but friendship remains. I even think you are missing something; it should be love, friendship, s*x or money. Friendship is the most important thing to me,”
