While most women want to be married, Ghanaian musician Mzbel (real name Belinda Ekua Amoah) seems to be the odd one—saying marriage is not her kind of thing.
According to Mzbel, she nearly got married early this year but she had to reject the proposal because she is not the kind to get married.
Speaking to Graphic Showbiz in a recent interview, she said;
“I am not looking forward to marriage because I do not want to feel dedicated to anyone. I want to be my own woman and infact, I am enjoying being a single parent,” she told Showbiz in an interview last Monday”.
She added that “I have no problem being in a relationship; infact, I am currently dating but marriage is a no go area for me. I am a hard working woman with three kids and all this while, I have been doing everything on my own so I don’t see the reason why I would allow myself to be pinned down all in the name of love and marriage. I want to be a free bird”.
The mother of one also said “I nearly got married this year but I declined after thinking through and realising that marriage was not meant for me. I don’t want to feel obliged to cook or do certain things for any man. With my current single mother status, as and when I feel like doing something, I do it and so far I love it”.
Mzbel has been on the low for some months now, though occasionally, talks about who the father of her baby boy-Aaron crops up. The musician has failed to openly state who the father of the baby is, but most people believe, UT Boss-Kofi Amoabeng is the father of little Aaron.
You hardly hear African women playing down the marriage card so this comes as shock to some of us. What do you think?
