Music was actually my first love but I, unfortunately, the lost the interest since back in the days the music industry wasn’t favourable to females. Besides the kind of music I wanted to do then, Ghanaians were not really exposed to that style of music. So it was a bit of a struggle to fit in and unfortunately, I lost the interest. However, your first love will always be your love so I’m back. I intend pursuing music again,” she said.

Talking of her experience as a first time film producer, Ingrid said “This is my first time of shooting a movie and I must say it is not easy. I have come to respect movie makers.

However, the Play Boy actress insisted she was telling nothing but the truth and only the truth! Ingrid made the unbelievable disclosure while speaking in an interview with Showbiz few days ago.
She said she took the decision to abstain from sex because she does not want to do it with the wrong man, especially while considering the fact that most men are no longer trustworthy.
“I have now made a vow to have sex on my wedding night and until then, I won’t do anything with any man,” she said.
Ingrid said she meets men regularly but will only give her heart to a serious man who would treat her like a queen.
“Every lady wants to be treated like a queen and loved to the maximum and once I get such a responsible man, I would gladly accept and marry him,” she said.
The beautiful actress says she has since devised means of wadding off her sexual urges such as taking a cold shower or eating ice cream. So for Ingrid Alabi, what matters most is not flimsy romantic relationships, but building her career, growing her businesses, and then settling down when she meets her description of a marriageable man.
