Singer, Iyanya has stated that he believes marriage is beautiful despite the divorce trend rocking the entertainment industry.
During the latest episode of The Kingz Corner podcast, the “Kukere” crooner stated that Nigerians must learn to ignore bad marriages so that it doesn’t affect their overall perception of marriage.
Iyanya further said that couples displaying love and happiness on social media is not an accurate representation of a successful marriage.
He encouraged couples to address issues in their relationships privately instead of seeking external validation through social media.
“Marriage is beautiful. We have to learn to ignore bad marriages. And not allow those bad marriages to define our expectations of marriage. Don’t let a bad marriage make you think you can’t have a good marriage.
“I believe that if you find someone who loves you and is willing to sacrifice, it [marriage] is beautiful. I know people who are happily married, not that they don’t have challenges but I’ve watched them protect what they have. Some people who are happily married are not on Instagram; they don’t post valuable moments. They keep it, they cherish it.
“Social media is two words; social and media. Is your marriage social? If you want to be entertaining people with your marriage, if you guys now have small issues, you can’t even make up again.”
Glamsquad recalls that Iyanya who is looking forward to tying the knot urged his fans to pray for him to find a good wife.
