In a recent chat with The Sun, Delta State-born singer Oritsefemi Ekele Malemute, who has two daughters with two baby mamas, reveals why he isn’t married yet and talks about being focused on giving the best to his daughters, Patience and Esther. He says,
”Marriage is not something that you just rush into. It comes with its challenges. If a guy is not 100 per cent okay and jumps into marriage he might have problems. As a man you have to be 100 per cent okay.
I am not saying that you must have all the money in the world. Women will always flock around you as a young man if have money but the ladies also want to see enterprising youths all the time.”
So could the problem be that you have so many women around you so you are confused and don’t know which one to pick?
”The truth honestly is that I am taking my time. That is why I say Igbe Iyawo ogba gudu gudu (it takes a lot to marry a woman). You must balance your matrimonial home and your hustle. Aside the money, it comes with a lot of responsibility. Some couples in marriages complain about satisfaction and I am like why this complains? It is not this same marriage that you started with a lot of romance and passion? Why have you stopped being romantic and passionate towards your partner? Life also changes.
“You as a man, the ability to always meet up with your responsibility is very important. Sometimes, things might not work out well. Whether you like it or not, a lady wants a guy who is always on point and if you are not on point they will stop loving you. You as a woman you must always take care of yourself or your man will leave you for another woman so you must make up your mind and hang in there for better worse.
“As a man you must not say that because your worst has happened you will now relent, you must keep trying. Marriage is like something a competition between you and your wife. Both of you are running the race. If it is good for you it is good for her and vice versa. If one problem should occur, remember, you are both fighting the whole world.
“There is a lot of responsibility on my shoulder. I have millions of fans who look up to me. What if I get married today and two days later the marriage is all over? All those looking up to me will not want to marry again. …
Speaking of his two beautiful daughters, Oritsefemi reveals,
”My daughters mean the world to me. I gave birth to them when I had nothing in my account and was barely able to feed. We were living hand to mouth. Today, when people see me with them they are surprised because they don’t know about them.See Also
I gave birth to them in Ajegunle when there was nothing and Indomie and tea was their continental breakfast but now I am spoiling them. One is 13 and the other is 11.
Their names are Patience Alero Ekele Majemite and Esther Origomisama Ekeke Majemite. I don’t miss their visiting days in school.”
