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
