Multiple award-winning Nigerian singer/song-writer, Yemi Eberechi Alade, has opened up about the societal pressure she faces to tie the knot.
Expressing her frustration with the persistent questioning about her marital status, the ‘Na Gode’ hitmaker, made known that she constantly receives pressure from both family and friends to get married and have children.
Despite the widespread rumors of her marriage to her manager, the crooner who is also an actress subtly clarified her relationship status by saying;
”People often get married, especially towards the end of every year. I’m not feeling pressured. When the time is right, it will happen.”
Speaking in a candid interview with Cool FM, Yemi Alade said;
“Family pressure is a challenging thing to resist because it’s coming from the people I respect and look up to, insisting that I should get married.
However, I believe that if they genuinely have my best interests at heart, they will be patient with me because finding the right partner is more crucial than just getting married.”
But beyond that, I don’t think anyone should rush into making the wrong decision of being with the wrong partner,” she added.
