Why I Snubbed Nigerian Men- Actress Ada Karl On Why She Married A White Man

Nigerian actress and filmmaker Ada Karl has shared the reason behind her choice to marry a white man from Sweden instead of a Nigerian man.

She expressed her fondness for intercultural relationships as the main factor that led her to tie the knot with her Swedish husband, Fredrik Karl.

During an interview with Saturday Beats, Ada disclosed that her husband embraced and fulfilled all the traditional rites in Igbo customs, even receiving a chieftaincy title.

Ada said; “I have always been a lover of inter-cultural romance. My husband loves Nigeria and wants to retire here. He has fulfilled all traditional rites required to be a true son of the soil. He is now a full-blown Igbo man with the Igbo chieftaincy title, Chief Tabaku 1 of Ibolo Kingdom.”

The movie star explained that her decision to return to Nigeria was driven by her deep love for her homeland, which led her to leave America two years prior.

She said; “I moved back to Nigeria two years ago. I love my roots, and that is why my Instagram handle says, ‘American by birth, Nigerian by force’, meaning I have no option than to accept being Nigerian. I love being a Nigerian, and in my next life, I still want to be a Nigerian.

I believe that Nigerians are the coolest people on earth with the greatest sense of humour. I read comments online and I see the humor in many of them. I am a graduate of Mass Communication, so I know good journalism. Those comments online reflect that Nigerians have a great sense of humour.

Nigerians are happy people, despite all the torture and sufferings our leaders have perpetually subjected us to. We are very kind and generous.

We live in so much lack, yet we display incredible acts of abundance and generosity when others are in need. I pray that God will touch the souls of our leaders to build a better Nigeria.”
