Are you astounded? Well, we were too when we heard this rather startling news about our dear top notch Nollywood actress and Glo Ambassador, Rita Dominic. This is because, for a very long time now, the subject marriage has never been connected to this sultry perfect role deliverer who has traversed the English genre of the Nollywood as a shining star for well over a decade now. Just like most of her contemporaries, who hitherto and seemingly abhorred the marriage institution, have been changing their prefix from ‘Miss’ to ‘Mrs.’, it was thus a pleasant news for us at this end to hear from a grapevine that Rita Nwaturocha Dominic, a Theatre Arts graduate of University of Port Harcourt, and of Igbo extraction, was knocking up some plans to get married very soon. It was indeed a very cheering news to many of charming and delectable Rita’s fans and admirers, as it was obvious that marriage remained the only thing left for her to accomplish. But with what we could scratch from a recent interview she had with a Lagos-based soft-sell tabloid, information about Rita Dominic’s purported wedding plans is rather sketchy. When she was asked in particular when her wedding bells will ring, Rita replied in a rather unambiguous way, “very soon, very soon (grin, grin, grin), you will hear it; and when the poser of her finding the right man being difficult was put to her, she retorted: No, I never said anything like that, you people titled it that way. I can never say anything like that, ‘na una use hand write am like that’ (laughs); and as to whether it has really been difficult finding the right man; ever smiling Rita would not want to be categorical about the issue, saying, “just leave it like that (laughs). Maybe, I am not answering that question (laughs), you people are trying to push me, but you are not getting that aspect.”
Our sincere memo to Rita at this end is that as an African woman, marriage is one of her obligations whether she likes it or not and if she must know, age is definitely not getting favourable to her, only that she has a striking figure and charming looks that can still keep her going for many years to come. So, for how long are we or let’s say your fans going to wait for Rita to become Mrs. Rita?
