Popular handsome Nollywood actor Frederick Leonard the multiple, award-winning actor who has paid his dues to stay relevant in the music industry, in an interview reveals why he is still single way into his middle 40’s, even though he has said he doesn’t want to die single and alone.
Frederick Leonard during the interview also revealed that he isn’t the kind person most view him as, that the misconception held of him is completely unjust, and that’s why he engages a lot on social media so that people can see the man behind all of his scenes and meet the very soft-hearted and playful man, who is a people’s person.
Frederick Leonard told Allure Vanguard,
“I have not lost hope in marriage. It is just the time we live in. I believe in marriage and even the Bible says that it is not good for man to be alone. I do not want to end up alone. I do not want to end up miserable. I want to be with someone who I have a lot of things in common with; someone I’m compatible with. I believe in the institution of marriage, and I think that people should be more realistic with themselves when it comes to picking a partner.”
As a popular actor, there are misconceptions some members of the public have about him being pompous and rude, Frederick Leonard says he is not what people think he is.
Frederick went further to add,
“People just look at you and think you’re a sudden way. For those of us who are 6ft and above, and have such a commanding aura, we are often seen as a bit standoffish. How many people would you have to go to and knock on their doors and say hey, I’m not that way? As an entertainer who is at the top of his game, it’s normal for people to have these misconceptions.
The expectations are rather too high. Some people feel that it’s a different emotion that runs through celebrities. We will keep sensitizing and educating people so that we are not wrongly judged.
I’m quite interactive on my social media handles and the reason I do that, is because I want them to begin to understand the Frederick behind the fame.
The man behind all the characters that I play is a very soft-hearted, playful young man. He is a people person. I get them to meet the real me than the assumed Frederick Leonard.”
