”Nobody should be under pressure to get married, when it’s time, it’s time” – Yemi Alade


Nigerian singer, Yemi Alade is no doubt one of the most talented, successful, and powerful musicians to come out of the continent today.

With a slew of hits like “Johnny”, “Taking Over Me”, and more under her belt, Yemi Alade has made her mark on the music industry and in the African entertainment industry globally. Yet, despite all her career accomplishments, all a number of people can still see when they look at the now 34 year old singer, is a ring finger without a ring.

During her latest interview with Cool FM, Yemi Alade while subtly debunking her reported marriage, spoke about the pressures to get married and how she feels about pressure, especially from family members, to get married and have children.

Yemi Alade stated that the pressure to get married gets quite intense towards the end of the year but she has mastered how to respond.

She revealed that marrying the right partner is of utmost importance and making provision ahead of the kids one’s marriage could produce. In her words:

“People get married every year, especially towards the end of the year, it gets even crazier. I’m under no pressure honey. Nobody should be. When it’s time, it’s time.

Family pressure is a difficult pressure to shake off because it’s the people you respect and look up to that are insisting that you get married, but I believe if they have your best interest at heart, they will wait with you.
Because it’s more important to have the right partner than to just get married.

But asides that, I don’t think anyone should be in so much of a rush to make wrong decision and be with the wrong partner. Have you guys checked how much Pampers is? Look, these babies they are gifts, but when they’re born, they need things. Let’s stop borning children to come and suffer. Let’s normalize that. When mummy says go and marry, go and have child, say mummy do you have trust fund baby? Are you ready for trust fund baby? Let’s have questions to ask these people that have opinions, that are watching the womb on when we should. I think no one should be under unnecessary pressure. Have you seen the economy? Calm down! For this economy, we no dey play like that oh.”
