Iyanya admits He would have been Married by 30 if Not for His Music Career



Iyanya Dunes Center Abuja BellaNaija08 Iyanya talked about his love life with TheNETng, and admitted he would be married now if not for his career.

“I’ll be honest, It’s not very easy. If I had my way, I would have been married a long time ago, by now people will be seeing my kids. It’s not very easy trying to get this music right and then adding marriage to it. The truth is even though people think I have that bad boy reputation, I respect marriage a lot, I don’t believe I should get married and get out of it, so I’m not trying to rush into something I’ll rush out of.”

When asked what he’s looking for in his special woman, he said –

“It’s hard bro. If you say you want a girl from the church, you’ll carry devil, if you say you want a dancer, you’ll carry trouble.

I’m just trying to be patient and take my time and it’s even harder now that I’m famous because it’s really hard to find someone that truly cares for you when you are famous. I think this is one of the things I regret, I should have married someone way back when my mum was still alive.

Back then my mum was always on my neck to settle down and at the time I always wondered why but now I see it. I’m not giving up though, I just want to make sure I get this music right”

On Being 30 and Single

I’m 30 and I’ve not seen in the Bible or any church that’ll say I can’t come to church because I’m 30 and not married [laughs].”

    I hear you Inyanya and your thinking is valid. However, building a career and making a family are not mutually exclusive. You can absolutely manage them both. Why ever not? Hopefully, you wont get any less famous than you currently are so that will always be something you will have a problem with. Good luck with that!
