Adokiye Kyrian is still out here claiming virginity. Here's a recent interview she gave NewTelegraph, talking about the over-flogged topic.
What inspired your name, Adokiye?
The full name is Adokiyebaralasa meaning, ‘what I’m looking for is already with me’. The inspiration came from an event that took place when I was born; something miraculous happened to my dad when I came into this world, so my mum gave me the name, Adokiye.
Tell us briefly about your background?
I come from a very staunch Catholic family. My full name is Adokiye Ngozi Yvonne Kyrian. My mum is from Okrika in Rivers State, while my dad is from Imo State, Oguta LGA.
Professionally, I’m an Architect; I graduated from Caritas University, a Catholic institution owned by the Very Reverend Father Edeh.
What inspired your new single?
I got the inspiration to talk about love.
What’s your take on early marriage?
Well, I’m not really a fan of early marriage because I believe one should be physically, spiritually, mentally and psychologically ready for the institution called marriage. I don’t see any need rushing into it if you would rush out of it. Though some people have been lucky with it but it’s best to be fully ready still.
Do you believe in love at first sight, ever experience it?
Yes sure, I believe in love at first sight.
Why did you decide to offer your virginity to Boko Haram in exchange for the Chibok girls?
I was filled with sympathy and was ready to do anything to help get those little kids out of that devilish state they were in.
If you get the offer, would you auction your virginity for a million US Dollars?
My brother, I no fit lie to you oh, if this economy situation continues, well, I would be left with no choice but to do so.
Which Nigerian male celebrity, are you crushing on that you’d allow to disvirgin you, and why?
I love Davido; I think he has a good heart and I’m guessing a lot of people don’t know that he’s very nice and soft hearted.
Have you ever been heartbroken?
By God’s Grace, no, never!
Who is your Nigerian celebrity crush?
That will be Genevieve Nnaji.
Considering your status, would you date or marry a younger lover, someone below you?
Love knows no boundary and doesn’t care at all. So long as the partner has the strong quality of a good husband, why not?
Tell us about the man in your life, if any?
There’s no man in my Life.
What is the most cherished part of your body?
That will be my bow Legs. I heard it’s sexy and cute. Or don’t you think so?
What are the challenges you encountered while coming up as an artiste and how were you able to overcome them?
Being able to prove yourself is one of the most challenging thing to embark on because you will have a lot of moments where people would not believe in you, you have to work extra hard to get them to trust you and believe you for who you are and what you have to offer as an artiste who only needs an opportunity or a chance. The key to cases like these is to keep moving and love what you do.
