The Nollywood actress has finally opened up on her dating history during an exclusive chat with Sunday Scoop.

Suprisingly, Jumbo disclosed that she had never dated anyone Nigerian prior to her marriage to her American/Puerto Rican husband.

She made the disclosure when asked what it felt like being married to a white man.

She said:

“Before I got married, I had always dated people who lived outside Nigeria. As a result, being married to someone who lives abroad does not seem bizarre. I didn’t plan to marry someone who lives abroad. Rather, it just happened.”

Jumbo went on to advise ladies to avoid being pressured into marriages until they were ready.

“Marry because you know this is what you want to do once in your lifetime. You have to be married to someone you can do everything with. Don’t marry because people say it is time to get someone. Get married for yourself. The pressure today will not be worth the ache tomorrow.”
