78-year-old veteran singer, Ebenezer Obey, has said ‘It’s a foolish old man that will say he wants to marry a young lady, who is just starting her life.
The Nigerian juju musician said this to the The Nation while addressing queries as to whether or not he would marry another woman following the demise of Juliana Olufade, his wife, back in 2011
To him, the young lady just started life and she is still strong and virile and only a foolish man will marry such a lady.
In his words:“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. When I do it, everyone will know. I can marry at any time, not just for the sake of marriage, but for the sake of companionship.
“I have been blessed. What else do I want? I have children, grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren. As long as I still have life, you will hear when the time for marriage comes.”
