an interview by The Nation newspaper, the 78-year-old multiple award-winning singers Ebenezer Obey, has ruled out advised against the common habit of old men marrying younger ladies who are just ‘starting life’.
In the interview, the Legendary Nigerian singer sated that it is only a foolish old man that will get married to a young lady who has little to no experience with the ways of life.
When the music legend was asked why he has refused to marry a young lady since the passing on of his beloved he responded :
”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.”
He says for him, whenever he is ready to settle down again, it would be for companionship and he would be looking at a woman in her 60s and not a young lady.
