However, in a recent video shared via her official Instagram page today, January 6th, 2023 Elsie advised Nigerian to stop marriage-shaming women.

According to the Basketmouth estranged wife, it’s in the part of the world that people talk so much about women not being marriage at a certain age and by extension uttered that it’s unfair to the female gender

She says that several questions directed to women like “Why u never marry at this age?” “At this age, won’t you go and born one?”  are not cool enough as a woman can marry herself.

Not stopping there, Basketmouth ex-wife added that marriage is an institution as beautiful as it is, it can be very tough. He added that if someone rush in, the person will surely rush out.

veraciousvee: Why haven’t you said this all the while u were in your marriage. Pls madam respect yourself and stop dishing trash to the public. Marriage is a beautiful thing and stop discouraging others. You should have been saying all these no*sense all d time you were enjoying ur marriage with your husband. Break up in silence and don’t come on social media to mislead pple. Mtchew.

subsidy123: This is a wrong advice…..Relationship is tough being single is tough not having a child is tough having a child is also tough…….. why did you ever get married in the first place why you no take your time?? Ehn?? When you are too careful you end up making mistake.

don_ju_lio: Another blessing CEO loading … once their Marriage crash they set ring light and turn motivational speaker online .. but you got married and had 3 children.. shame no catch you.

fitzonwa: You know our people are definitely too opinionated with issues relating to family, relationships et al. We pray too much and loose our senses at the same time while being condescending on people forgetting that God’s time is the best. No one should ever rush into marriage without knowing what they’re doing and whom the person is.

ezegbakagbaka: Inasmuch as marriage-shaming a woman is absolutely wrong, please ‘I am taking my time’ should have a limit. I have seen girls in their late 20s saying they are still too young for marriage , turn down every marriage proposals only to turn around and be sleeping in churches in late 30s. This very common in the south east and among the ‘hot chicks’ (apologies if the term offends anyone please). The point is that there is no thumb rule to this; don’t marriage-shame anyone, don’t over take your time, set out for yourself reasonably what you want and go for it whether in 20s… As-salaam alaikum.

beybeabeu: Hmmmm! 🤔🤔 the message is great but I have a huge problem where it’s coming from. I mean from someone with 3 beautiful kids. And why now? Why passing this message now to viewers? PLS! PLS! As in PLS! I have always prayed when I hit 30 that God should just lemme give birth to a child cos I can be ok without marriage seeing the type of people out there. Thank God He answered my prayers and boy! I have never been happier. It’s double jeopardy for especially women in late 30s not to have husbands AND A CHILD? God I thank u oh. Anyways different strokes for different folks. Your own child can never do wrong IF God helps u.

vin_ikenna: Stop capping rubbish.
