I will date any man willing to take me as I am – BBNaija star, Anto

Former BBNaija housemate, Munirat Antoinette Lecky, popularly called Anto, says she is willing to date any man who is honest and ready to take her for who she is.

Speaking on if she can date anyone in the showbiz industry in an interview with Sunday Scoop, the media personality said;

“At this point, I’m trying to date whoever will accept me for me. In dating, I think usually most people date people within their fields/industry, because where else do most people find partners besides ‘at work’? So, I’m not against dating someone in the limelight. I’m most interested in dating someone who is honest and keeps to his word,”

The reality star further said that as long as Nigerians believe in ‘juju and jazz’, they will not understand what mental health is.

She said, “It is a known fact that we do not pay enough attention to mental health in Nigeria. As long as we still believe in jazz, juju, and village people disturbing lives, many Nigerians will not understand what mental health is. But luckily, more and more people are learning about it and educating others. More Nigerians are feeling more comfortable to talk about their mental health despite the existing stigma.”

On being depressed after she had taken  to her Instagram page to write about some of her personal struggles, she said: “I think celebrities should do whatever will give them peace of mind. I wrote that life is hard, and some people were saying I was depressed, broke, or regretted my decision to be on Big Brother show, and none of these things are the issues I am facing. No one wants to deal with people misconstruing their words and no one wants to open themselves up to insults, so celebrities should show vulnerability to their fans, media, only if they want to. It would be great if our favourites, heroes, can comfortably come online and speak their truths. But other people online, mostly the media, make it annoying to share your daily struggle.”
