Fast-rising and talented Nollywood actress, Adebimpe Oyebade popularly known as Adebimpe Omo Oba, recently revealed in an interview with BroadwayTV that she cannot date her colleague Lateef Adedimeji because he is not her type of man.
The 26-year-old denied having a relationship with the popular actor.
According to her, the fact that they have acted a lot of romantic scenes together is what is making fans believe they are in a relationship.
Debunking the rumours, the AMVCA Nominee said: ”I am not in a relationship with Lateef Adedimeji but we are friends. I won’t deny the fact that we are friends, we are close friends. We are not in a relationship; we are both in different relationships.
“When you are too close to the opposite sex, it’s a problem. People think you are dating. Lateef is only the one that is close to me, I am not the kind that makes a lot of friends when it comes to the industry,” she added.
When asked why she cannot date Lateef, she said: “The problem started with the fans, they call us ‘Momma and Zaddy’. A lot of fans like us together; they want us to be together.
“He is a good man, I already see him as a family. I won’t want to be with someone I see as a family. Nothing can ever happen between us because I cannot marry someone in the spotlight.
“I would say no to Lateef if he asks me out because he is my friend and I already see him as a brother. He is not my type”.
