Veteran musician Salawa Abeni has revealed that at 57, some men still wants her hand in marriage.
She told Saturday Beats that she has learnt to treat such men with respect while turning down their request.
“Men still pester me for love but I am always very careful with them even though you cannot know which one is good or bad from mere appearance.
“I mentioned it in one of my songs that if I laugh too much, they will call me a prostitute, if I frown too much, they will say I am proud. But it is good to be very diplomatic with them and not to be rude to them.”
Salawa who condemned the rise in the rate of divorce among celebrity couples said that every man or woman needed a companion; therefore people must make their marriages work.
“The truth is that every adult male or female wants to be in a happy marriage. They should note that two wrongs can never make a right. One has to be cool-headed and patient.
“Those in the entertainment industry need to take things easy. While they make others happy with their talents, they must also make themselves happy by building good homes.”
