Ignatius, a well-known former Date Rush candidate, recently explained why he wanted to marry a woman who was not a candidate on the program.
In an interview with Ghanaian blogger Zionfelix, Ignatius said that a man shouldn’t marry just any woman and that looks shouldn’t be the only criteria when looking for a lifelong wife.
He said while the ladies on the show were stunning, he based his decision to get married not just on looks, but on a variety of other considerations.
Ignatius went on to say that he wasn’t particularly thrilled with the ladies’ reactions, which influenced his decision to turn off all rushes.
Ignatius revealed that his wife is a nurse and that they have been friends for a little over a year. He met her after he became popular for “berating” all of the Date Rush girls, even though two of them had kept their rush for him the entire time.
He went on to say that he made her friend and that she would start talking every now and then before he knew she was really well informed.
