She further revealed that her ex boyfriend didn’t support her acting career but later consented to it because he saw she was determined.
To Lizzy Gold, a man who isn’t wealthy cannot be her husband, she said the reason she dumped her ex was because he was broke and was not supporting her career, she revealed,
“The affair didn’t crash because I went into acting;. The basic truth is he doesn’t have money; so I decided to end the relationship. I dumped him in 2013 because he didn’t have much in terms of money and he didn’t have any push for my kind of man”
In one of her interviews, actress Lizzy was asked of her marital status and her response was that she’s not yet married because she loves her space.
“I am not married. It’s not because I don’t want to get married or that I don’t like marriage, but for now, I don’t feel like getting married. I feel that I am not mentally ready for it. A lot of people rush into marriage and rush out. I want to go into marriage and be able to stay, but right now I don’t think I am mentally ready for that”.
“Secondly, I love my space a lot. I still want to enjoy my space alone. Maybe when I’m in my late 30s or early 40s, I can think of getting married. For now, marriage is not on my mind. Thirdly, my two kids are for one man, and we are co-parenting. He is taking care of his lovely kids very well. He really wants to get married to me but I am the one delaying, because like I said, I am not mentally ready. He is the best man that can happen to any woman; trust me.”
When asked about her kind of man, she said she would want a man who isn’t a woman beater, a man that is hardworking and has a fresh breath and also, a man who is clean and wealthy.
She added that she would love her husband to be older than her with 5years, here’s what she said,
“You must be older than me with about 5 years, I want to always look young before my man. You must never use pink lips balm on your lips. You must keep clean low hair cut, no weaving of hair, no afro and no plenty beard. You must never sag down your trousers, I love a complete well dressed gentleman.
You must have a fresh breath because I love kissing. You must smell nice always and you must never pierce your ear, nose or any part of your body…no tattoos too. You must talk less ..don’t like men who talk too much and you must be good in bed…very important. You must be God-fearing and you must be romantic, I love gifts and surprises,” she added to her list of expectations “
Along the line, actress Lizzy had revealed she might not get married due to the harsh treatment melted at African women by their husbands even when they are pregnant.
“I’ve realised 80 percent of marriages in Africa women are meant to do the house chores. Please is this what marriage is about? Married couples I need your attention here..maybe if someone explains better to me I might change my mind about marriage,”
In an interview, when asked for the motivation she got that pushed her into acting she responded,
“I found out that I am a very good actress. As a young girl I always made people laugh. Even in the church, I was in the drama group and people liked me a lot. I attended Delta State University, Abraka; from there I moved to Lagos where I was introduced to the Royal Arts Academy, owned by Emem Isong. I enrolled and learnt a lot about acting. Today, I am not just an actress but a producer. I give God the glory.”

Another movie this beautiful actress has produced is “Just a night”, the movie portrayed domestic violence women face everyday, it was produced in 2017.
According to her, her motive of producing such a movie was to enlighten women and prepare them for marriage so when they get into marriage and encounter such a thing, they will know how to address it.
In an interview with Lucy Ezeliora, she said,
“It is because that is what is going on in most marriages. A lot of people think domestic violence is only when a man hits a woman. It’s more than that. It also includes verbally abusing one’s partner; threatening, and making their lives unbearable. ‘Just a Night’ is a family movie that everybody should see; single ladies should also watch it so that when they get married they will know how to address the issue. The movie addresses the issue of domestic violence, and helps couples to avoid it in every way.”
