Nollywood star, Juliana Olayode, popular known as Toyosi in the comedy series – Jenifa’s Diary, has said God told her to maintain her sexual virginity in order to have favour and ‘open doors’ in life.
She disclosed this in Lagos when she bore her mind to entertainment correspondents on what she thinks about having sex before marriage.
The self-acclaimed virgin said: “I am a strong advocate for sexual purity and it goes beyond the screen for me. That is who I am and I’m not doing it for any other reason than that.
“Years before I began acting, God told me that He would open doors for me and that wherever I go, I should always talk about Him and sexual purity.
“There are lots of immoral things on social media which attract a lot of traffic but it’s sad that when you talk about something like sexual purity, people look at you like you’re doing something weird.
“I must confess that it has not been easy for me. But irrespective of what goes on around me and in the movie industry, I have resolved to stand tall and stay true to my values.”
“There will always be pressure and it’s not an easy process but it’s good to stick to one’s values. Sometimes, one may even be tempted to give it all up but I believe that people shouldn’t have sex until they’re married.”
