I Can’t Cook For Any Man Who Doesn’t Earn Than Me – Ronke Oshodi Oke



Famous thespian, Ronke Ojo-Gbolahan, popularly addressed as Oshodi-Oke is one of the few celebrities who have been able to have a scandal free life. The not so controversial actress, if ever at all, has been in the industry for almost 20 years making her one of the most sought after actress in the industry. Talented and hardworking, Ronke has been able to carve a niche for herself in both drama and comedy world of Nollywood. Having featured in several movies in both Yoruba and English sector, Ronke Ojo is one of fan’s favorite.
In an interview with BroadwayTV, the actress weighed in on the cause of many celebrity marriages going down the hill and she had a lot to say. According to her, things can’t work out if the responsibilities of a home lies heavily on one person. She stated that if she provides for the needs of the family or takes up the role of the breadwinner then there is no way she’s cooking for any man.
“It can’t work, I am going to pay the NEPA bill, drop cash for feeding, pay school fees, I’ll do some certain things if you don’t have and you now come and expect me to cook for you? It’s not going to work, it is not just going to work. But if you are a man and you are doing everything, absolutely everything, you drop cash for school fees, feeding fee and you give everything then what else does the woman want? That is when a man can have total control of his wife but if the man does 40% while the woman 60% or vice versa, it’s not going to work”

However she further stated that there are some rude ladies out there just as well; “There are some really rude ladies out there that even though they have 5naira they would make their husband believe they have 20naira and when that 5naira stops things go bad”
Ronke who didn’t further her education after her Secondary School Leaving Certificate shared that she has no regrets and would still further if she has the chance. On how she has been able to build herself to speak fluently Ronke responded saying English to her is just a gift and nothing special.

” Speaking English is a gift. It is either you take it or you leave it. I used to have a friend who was very brilliant when you tell her something it sticks to her brain but she’s never able to express herself so for me, I see speaking English as a gift. Secondly. I think the kind of people you move around with, for me i know i have a problem so I ask myself how do I solve this so I move with people that know more than I do. So if i make a mistake I really appreciate when people correct me. If you keep doing that, people will like to correct you and embrace you and teach you more. I speak other languages as well.”
