Only a “foolish old man” would marry a young lady, as a wife- Ebenezer Obey

The 78-year-old veteran singer told The Nation newspaper while addressing queries as to whether or not he would marry another woman following the demise of Juliana Olufade, his wife, back in 2011.

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,” the Egba-Yoruba native, said.

“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.”
