My family is pressuring me to get married – Yemi Alade

Nigerian Afropop singer cum songwriter, Yemi Eberechi Alade, 34, well-known as Yemi Alade, has revealed her feelings about the pressure she receives from her family and friends to find herself a husband.

During her latest interview with Cool FM, the singer, who doubles as an actress and activist lamented that she is under pressure to marry and have children.

While subtly refuting the viral reports of her marriage to her manager, Alade stated: “People often get married, especially towards the end of every year. I’m not feeling pressured. When the time is right, it will happen.

“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.”
