Singer Yemi Alade has reacted to a report about her being pressured to get married.
In a recent interview with Big Brother Naija star Tacha on Cool FM, Yemi said she does not feel any pressure to get married even though there is always a rush to get married at the end of the year.
Yemi stated: “People often get married, especially towards the end of every year. I’m not feeling pressured. When the time is right, it will happen.
Advising ladies, she said, “Family pressure is a challenging thing to resist because it’s coming from the people you respect and look up to, insisting that you should get married.

“But beyond that, I don’t think anyone should rush into making the wrong decision of being with the wrong partner.”
However, some media reports subsequently claimed the 34-year-old is being pressured to get married.
Reacting to the report in a post via X on Friday night, an angry Yemi reposted the report saying: “Interviewer: what would you tell any young lady out there getting pressured by family members to get married quick?
“Yemi Alade: I would advise them to…
“Media headlines: I am being pressured to get married, Yemi Aade cries.
