It’s only a foolish old man that will say he wants to marry a very young lady who is just starting her life’ – Ebenezer Obey

Ebenezer Obey, the Nigeria music icon has frowned at the habit of old men marrying younger ladies who are just ‘starting life’.

During an interview with The Nation, the 78-year-old multiple award-winning singer, songwriter and music icon said, it is only a foolish old man that will get married to a young lady who hasn’t yet experienced anything in life.

The legendary singer was asked why he hasn’t married a young lady since his beloved wife passed on and he maturely 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 further 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 who just started her life
