The claims in some quarters that girls from Anambra State are desperate money lovers has been dismissed by Anambra-born Nollywood actress, Irene Ibekwe.
Miss Ibekwe is a native of Ogbunike in Oyi local government area of the State.
She insisted that every human being loves money, but said it’s not true that girls from the state are desperadoes, who would do anything for money.
Irene who said this in a press chat, took exception to the popular notion about the Anambra girls.
She said, “It is not true that Anambra girls are desperadoes. We, Anambra girls are only independent and hard-working.
“If they say they love money I think that applies to everyone.
“Every human being loves money, not only Anambrarians.
“Money is good, yes, but what happiness can one derive from marrying a rich guy who treats you like a slave?
“None, so I still insist that every single girl should pray to marry someone who will love and cherish them.
“I want a God-fearing man, someone who will see me as a sister, mother, baby, friend, lover and not a punching bag.
“I want someone I can be happy with me, with or without money.”
