Francisca Gawugah, better known as Sista Afia, believes that marriage, contrary to popular belief, does not define who a woman is.
She believes that getting married, having children, and owning a home are not necessary goals for all women.
In an interview with Hitz FM, the 30-year-old singer stated that, despite her early plans to marry and even have twins, she does not believe she will settle down.
Sista Efia stated that she does not see herself rushing into marriage anytime soon, given the current situation in several homes and how marriages have become so unpopular.
Sista Afia said yes when asked if she planned on having children. She said she was ready to have children but would only consider marriage if she really wanted to.
“I wouldn’t necessarily be happier in life if I didn’t get married. My marriage is not who I am.”
“When I was a little girl, I distinctly recall telling myself that I would be married at age 21, give birth to twins at age 24, and have more sets of twins afterward.”
“I wasn’t particularly knowledgeable about marriage and life when I was younger and more naive, but now that I am, I’m not in a rush.”
“Having children is my desire, but even if I never get married, that’s okay, but for a child, that’s something I would want to have.”
Several celebrities like Serwaa Amihere, Nana Aba Anamoah, Sandra Ankobiah, Martha Anakomah, Jackie Appiah, Lydia Forson et al are all yet to get married just like Sista Afia.
