Popular On Air Personality, Omotunde Adebowale, better known as Lolo 1 of Wazobia FM, in a recent interview, bared it all about being a single mother, who is career-driven, her previous marriage, giving marriage another chance and more.
Speaking on being a career-driven single woman, Lolo 1 said:
“My children know mommy is working for the money and most of the time we do see in the morning before I leave. When I get back, they are probably sleeping but they will see me when I wake up, even though it’s not an everyday occurrence. We carry each other along in my own family. I know what they are doing, they know what I’m doing and so it makes it very easy to work.”
Speaking about her previous marriage, Lolo 1 said:
“Let’s just say I had no wisdom at that time, although I wasn’t young when I got married. I guess I was very naïve on many issues of life and it was just fundamentally wrong.
I wouldn’t blame him or myself, that’s why I don’t demonise my ex. He is a good father to his children, and he is a very quiet man that doesn’t like issues. It is us that didn’t work but we are still friends and our kids have the best of us.”
On giving marriage another shot, She said:
“Definitely; when the right man finds me. Being single at my age is very challenging and you never know it until you get there. A lot of people just demonise women, who are single. You hear about domestic violence every day, although I never experienced it. If they leave, people demonise them; when they stay, they get battered or their lives don’t move forward. There are many psychological issues that can go on in a person’s life beyond beating. When they die, people start asking why they didn’t leave.
“When I find someone that understands me completely and that we can put our hands on each other and make it work, I will definitely give it a shot.”
