One man’s poison is another man’s meal, so they say. While many young dudes will prefer to date ladies they are very much older than, Aremu Afolayan, the younger brother of popular director, Kunle Afolalyan and son of late movie legend, Ade Love, says he prefers going out with women that are older than him. Although many in the industry have tagged him with such demeaning name as gigolo, the talented actor has revealed that he goes for the older women because he trust them more than younger ladies
In an interview he granted Yes Magazine, Aremu said:
“They said I’m a gigolo right? I owe no one any explanation for the way I live my life. They can criticize my film, but not my life.
“They said I do rich women for money, how I wish I can do that because a gigolo don’t get broke like this. If I’m a gigolo I will never sell my properties to do a film of N16 million. I sold three of my cars to raise the money. I am not what people think I am.
‘‘I love ladies that are older than me. It’s my business because I don’t find the good thing, the real love and happiness from the young chaps.
“Can you imagine a situation where I sleep with my girl now and she will go and sleep with one yahoo boy or my daddy’s friend again because she needs money?
“So, I have to follow someone who is not a girl as they say, but a lady that is at least older than me. This is what I like; my life, not their life. So, that’s no one’s business. You see, I owe no one any explanation concerning this. I can only explain to God and until He comes, I can continue.”
