Frederick Leonard, a Nollywood star, has opened up on why he is still single at 46, saying he doesn’t want to end up in a miserable marriage.
In a recent interview with Allure Vanguard, the Anambra-born film star said he doesn’t plan to remain single but to be with “someone I’m compatible with.”
Leonard, while stating that he has not lost hope in marriage, also cautioned that people should be more realistic with themselves when searching for a partner to avoid making wrong decisions.
“No, I have not lost hope in marriage. It is just the time we live in. I believe in marriage and even the Bible says that it is not good for man to be alone. I do not want to end up alone. I do not want to end up miserable,” he said.
“I want to be with someone who I have a lot of things in common with; someone I’m compatible with. I believe in the institution of marriage, and I think that people should be more realistic with themselves when it comes to picking a partner.”
The Nollywood star, who has been in the industry for almost two decades, debuted his acting career in 2001 where he played brief one-scene roles and took a break from acting in order to complete his university education and obtain a degree.
He got his first-ever lead role in 2008 on ‘Indian Doctor’, a classic film. In 2009, Leonard featured in ‘Disclosure’, a hit TV series, which aired predominantly on Africa Magic on DSTV.
