Ebenezer Obey, Legendary Nigerian singer, who lost his wife in 2011, has hinted he might get married again but has dismissed any plans of getting married to a young lady in an interview with The Nation.
The 78-year-old multiple award-winning singer said it is only a foolish old man that will get married to a young lady who hasn’t yet experienced anything in life.
Read why he is not married yet:
”Marry a young lady? It’s a foolish old man that will say he wants to marry a young lady. The young lady has just started her life and definitely is virile and strong. Someone like me should be thinking of a woman who is 60 or above. And when I do it soon, everyone will know.”
Speaking further, he said
” Well, the companionship of a wife is a good thing. It is not against God’s rule. So, I am here, I can marry at any time; not just for the sake of marriage as it is, but for the sake of companionship, because what else do I want? I have children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren. So I have been blessed. It is not like I am looking for a wife that would conceive babies. As long as I still have life, you will hear when the time for marriage comes.”
