BEVERLY HILLS, April 17, (THEWILL) – Popular actress, Tayo Sobola better known as Sotayo Gaga, says that being a married woman limits how close she could get with fellow actors on set.
Sobola, who recently received the title of Sarauniya (Queen Mother) of Uke Kingdom in Nasarawa State, disclosed this on Saturday while speaking with The Punch.
She said, “Even before I got married, I was selective about the kind of roles I portrayed as an actor. My husband quite understands and he knew I was a filmmaker before we got married. However, as a respected wife, I would not play any role that my husband won’t be happy with, such as being too intimate with the opposite sex.”
The actress also described her experience in marriage so far as “sweet.”
Sobola said, “It has been a sweet experience since the day we started dating till now that we are a married couple. Obviously, there will be ups and downs, just like in any relationship, but we are mature enough to handle things.”
Speaking on the changes she adopted as a married woman, Sotayo said, “I had known my husband for about seven years before we got married and I am still the same person. I usually call myself the ‘lane minder.’ The most important thing is that being married attracts a lot more respect than when I was single. It is a phase in life and we are flowing gradually with it.”
Speaking about how her new title of Sarauniya came about, she said, “I believe the palace saw some qualities in me and deemed it fit to give me the title.
“According to the Emir of Uke Kingdom, his father’s twin sister was the first person to be bestowed with that title and since her demise; no one has been given that honour. I am more or less a role model to women in that community.”
