Nigerian star Yemi Alade has asked her family and loved ones to be patient with her. Alade said this in a radio interview confirming that she has received pressure from her family to walk down the aisle.
“People often get married, especially towards the end of every year. I’m not feeling pressured. When the time is right, it will happen," she said
“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."
She advised people not to rush into making such important life choices.
“But beyond that, I don’t think anyone should rush into making the wrong decision of being with the wrong partner.”
Yemi Alade’s discography includes King of Queens (2014), Mama Africa - The Diary of an African Woman (2016), Mama Afrique EP (2017), Black Magic and Deluxe Version (2017), Woman of Steel (2019), Empress (2020), Queendoncom (2021) and African Baddie (2022).
