She talks about her dream man in an interview with the VANGUARD

“Someone that has principles, integrity, someone that’s
kind, someone that’s funny, someone that’s clean. Someone that’s compassionate.
It’s not about being tall, dark and handsome, it’s not about money. We would
work for it together or whatever. My mum didn’t marry my father a rich man. So,
I don’t put much emphasis on money. It’s not about money or looks, it’s about
your heart and your head. So, for me o, I have to be in the person’s heart and
the person’s head. Intellect and you know, human feelings.”
