“It’s Only A Foolish Old Man That Will Say He Wants To Marry A Very Young Lady Who Is Just Starting Her Life” – Ebenezer Obey

Legendary singer, Ebenezer Obey has hinted he might be getting married again but to an older woman.

The singer who lost his wife in 2011 said during an interview with The Nation if he eventually decides to settle down, he would settle for a woman in her 60s as “only a foolish old man that will get married to a young lady who hasn’t yet experienced anything in life.”

When asked why he hasn’t married a young lady since his wife passed on, he said

”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. And when I do it soon, everyone will know.”

He added;

Well, the companionship of a wife is a good thing. It is not against God’s rule. So, I am here, I can marry at any time; not just for the sake of marriage as it is, but for the sake of companionship, because what else do I want?

“I have children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren. So I have been blessed. It is not like I am looking for a wife that would conceive babies. As long as I still have life, you will hear when the time for marriage comes.”
