Iyanya is dropping gems

By Jide OkonjoPublished 3 months ago 3 min read

Ace Nigerian musician Iyanya is till today one of the most eligible bachelors in the Nigerian entertainment industry. Iyanya has been single for many years now despite being the apple of many women's eyes.

While so many people see marriage as something to be scared of because of the stories they hear and what they see on social media, Iyanya is speaking now about why he sees it differently, and opening up about what he's learned about marriage despite not being married himself. The singer made the revelations during a new interview he did with The Kingz Corner podcast where he dropped a lot of good gems. Here's what Iyanya had to say.

Speaking about what he's learned about marriage, Iyanya opened during the podcast saying:

IYANYA: I know people who are happily married, not that they don’t have challenges. But I have watched them protect what they have. These days, people don’t protect what they have. Isn’t it funny that these days people would buy gold for fifty thousand dollars and lock it up. But you have someone that you love so much, and you can’t protect that person? You have to protect what you love.

Some people who are happily married are not on Instagram. Some are, but they don’t post valuable moments. They cherish them. Social media has a way of making people fearful about getting married. Two words, social and media. Is your marriage social?

Marriage is a beautiful thing. The most important thing is to find someone who loves you, who will sacrifice for you. Don’t let bad marriages define your expectations or make you think you can’t have a good marriage

These are very good words that Iyanya just dropped. So many good and wise words of advice especially in these times when we are so bombarded with seeing a lot of negative stories about marriage. Good on you Iyanya for sharing this with us!
