My daughter free to date at 15 – Kenny Saint Best

Kenny Saint Best

Gospel singer, Kenny Saint Best, has declared that she would be a wicked mother if she does not allow her daughter have a boyfriend at the age of 15.

Once married to fellow singer and former label mate, Eddy Montana of the defunct Remedies group, Kenny has a 15-year-old daughter named Edwina from that union.

Speaking in an interview with Punch, the younger sister of showbiz maestro, Kenny Ogungbe, said she would let her teenage daughter have a boyfriend once she attains the stage of “penis envy”.

Theorising on the concept postulated by Sigmund Freud, the mother-of-two said: “When I was at the university, I took a course in philosophy and they taught us that there is a particular age that girls start dating and they call it the age of penis envy.

“It is not that the girls are necessarily looking for sex, it is just a stage in their life whereby they realise that they are pretty and they can be attractive to a guy.

“For me, once my daughter is 15 years old then it is okay for her to date. It is not that they would be walking around holding hands but it has to be a civil and responsible relationship.

“I am not a regular parent, I feel it is okay for a female child to be aware that she is attracted to guys and she should also know that the guy would woo her.

“That was the age it happened to me and I would be a wicked mother to expect that at the age of 15, my daughter would not have someone wooing her or telling her the usual lies guys tell ladies.”
