- Uti Nwachukwu has finally answered fans who have been wondering when he will get married
- The actor and TV presenter explained that he would love to get married and start a family, but he doesn’t know when that will happen
- He also spoke about why he started keeping dreadlocks
Many have wondered why popular Nigerian actor and media personality Uti Nwachukwu has not gotten married. He explained why in a recent interview.
Uti said he has long term plans to get married but a failed trip to the US made him realise that one cannot be in total control of everything.
“I used to have “long term plans,” about everything in my life! But history has taught me, that you can’t be in total control. You can only hope.
I learned that the hard way, back when I was 22 or 23. I thought I had my life figured out. But I didn’t—and ended up, having to start all over again.”
He added that he will definitely get married as he would love to start his own family but he totally does not care about when that will happen.
“Yes. I have hopes. I mean, I would definitely like to get married and start a family. I don’t know if it’s now or later. I really don’t care when,” he told Vanguard.
The Big Brother All Stars winner also revealed why he started keeping dreadlocks. “I’ve never been a plain person. Even before I grew dreads, I used to have a bushy Afro. I used to want to do crazy patterns in my hair. It’s just who I am, you know.
I’ve always wanted to wear dreadlocks. But I told myself, “I’m going to wait until I graduate”. So, I started wearing dreads in 2009, the year I graduated.
I said then, “I’m never cutting this hair unless I grow bald or I’m paid a truck load of money”. Right now, I don’t think anyone, here in Nigeria, can afford to pay what it would take, to induce me to trim my hair! But, who knows? Time may change me!”
