In an interview, Ghanaian gospel singer Brother Sammy advised against marriage, which has raised concerns.
He believes that having children is preferable to marriage because children never abandon their parents, whereas in marriage, one person can leave the other.
He went on to explain why he prefers having children over marriage.
“As for me having children is better than getting married. Because if you are bedridden, your children will be beside you, and your wife or husband can decide to leave you for another,”
“Couples have turned into enemies. So I will tell someone that marriage is good but don’t rush. Children are a huge blessing because some are on a relentless pursuit to have some of their own. To me, it’s better to have children than get married. Marriage has killed many people,”
He, therefore, advised that young people take their time before they commit.
“Marriage is cool, but the advice I will give everybody is to not rush into marriage. It’s a cage. Don’t rush into marriage because some people have married and are dying,”
Below are some of the comments from social media users concerning Brother Sammy’s advice about marriage and having kids;
