Maria Chike, the former housemate of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show, says she is not getting married.


The 28-year-old reality TV star spoke of her relationship life in a Twitter post on Sunday.

Maria said she does not want to get married because marriage is a scam.

She, however, admitted that she would like to have children when she is ready.


Maria responded to a fan on Twitter who called on the reality TV star’s lover identified as Kelvin to propose to her.

The fan — with Twitter handle @chikesquad — teased that when Kelvin proposes to Maria, the ICU in hospitals would be overwhelmed.

“Kelvin should just propose if he has not done that yet. ICUs will flood,” the fan tweeted.


In response, Maria wrote: “I don’t want to get married though. That’s the truth! Marriage is a scam. I do want babies soon though when I am ready.”


Several celebrity marriages have crashed in Nigeria to the chagrin of fans looking up to such unions for inspiration.

In April, Yewande Adekoya’s eight-year-old marriage to Abiodun Ishola Thomas crashed over alleged infidelity and domestic violence.

In June, Chacha Eke, the Nollywood actress also announced the end of her nine-year-old marriage to Austin Faani Ikechukwu, the movie director, citing alleged “physical abuse”.

Barely three days after, Abdulrasheed Bello, better known as JJC Skillz, announced his separation from Funke Akindele, after six years of marriage to the actress.
