Singer Sista Afia says marriage does not define who she is as a person.
According to the singer, life doesn’t necessarily revolve around marriage.
The Jeje hitmaker said in an interview with Doreen Avio on Daybreak Hitz, “I don’t see life to be all about marriage and having kids. Life is a beautiful thing —and it has a lot of angles.”
“If I don’t get married, it doesn’t mean I wouldn’t do better in life. Marriage doesn’t define me,” she said on Hitz FM.
The singer also disclosed that when she was young, she had the dream of getting married and having children at an early age.
“I was a young girl and I remember telling myself that I would get married at the age of 21; I’d have twins at the age of 24, and another set of twins later.”
It appears the Weather singer has given up on that dream. She said the dream was borne out of naivety.
“I was very young, and I was very naïve, and I didn’t know much about marriage and life, but now I do I’m not in a rush.
“It’s my dream to have a kid, but if I don’t even get married, it’s fine but for a kid it’s something I would want to have.”
She concluded, “Married people these days… it is crazy. Considering this generation… Because we have social media, people do not see the importance of so many things any more.”
The Sika hitmaker concluded by saying, “if you’re a woman, whatever you want to do, be it marriage, you can go ahead and do it, but for me, I’m just being me, and I don’t regard marriage.”
