Ghanaian actress Juliet Ibrahim in a recent interview says she is no longer down with African men because of the African mentality that holds them back.

Juliet Ibrahim whose marriage Kwadwo Safo crashed a few years ago revealed she has African suitors but she does not feel comfortable settling with any of them. The award winning actress says that she struggles with African men because of the African mentality. The mentality according to her holds them back from dating a public figure.

She admitted that sometimes it is the family and friends of a suitor that become problematic. “Friends of these men even jump into the equation—hastily labeling all actresses as wh*res based on what they’ve read online. And some of the men I have met actually get cold feet because of such unfounded speculations,” the actress said.

According to her she is not over dating a black man as long as she can find one who understands her career and lifestyle. "For me it’s not about the colour of a  man’s skin but his mind.  The reason why I think a white man will work for me is because their mentality fits my lifestyle and my career. But if I meet a black man who sits well with my wants and expectations, I will jump for it.”
