Actress Salma Mumin has revealed that she is single because she has not found the right man who will understand her.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with NEWS-ONE, she described what she meant by ‘the right man’ as “a man that will love you for who you are, no matter how you look; a man that will cherish and adore you; a man that will take very good care of you and make sure that you don’t lack anything; a man that wouldn’t take you for granted.     
“I will go in for a tall dark looking African man. Yes of course you have to have a good job in order to support me in what I do. A man, who won’t criticize me…a man who will love me for me. That’s all.”
Salman joined Ghana’s movie industry in 2007 when she was featured in the movie ‘Passion &Soul’. She has since starred in a number of movies including ‘The Will’ by Venus Films, ‘Seduction’, ‘No Apology’, ‘Crazy’ and ‘Five Brides’.
