Veteran Nigerian singer, Ebenezer Obey has hinted at the possibility of remarrying, nine years after losing his spouse.
Evangelist Obey, 78, who spoke to The Nation in an interview suggested that his desire for companionship could make him consider remarrying.
The Juju music legend who revealed missing his late wife, ruled out the possibility of marrying a young woman.
He said, “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.
“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.
Meanwhile, Evangelist Obey dismissed rumors suggesting his demise, further adding that he has forgiven those who falsely reported him dead.
“I have forgiven the person that started the rumour. I did that immediately. I cannot hold a grudge against the person. After all, the truth has been revealed; just like Jesus Christ said that ye shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. People have rejoiced and they are still rejoicing with me.
