“People often get married, especially towards the end of every year. I’m not feeling pressured. When the time is right, it will happen.”

Speaking during her recent radio interview, Yemi states,“Family pressure is a challenging thing to resist because it’s coming from the people I respect and look up to, insisting that I should get married.

“However, I believe that if they genuinely have my best interests at heart, they will be patient with me because finding the right partner is more crucial than just getting married.

“But beyond that, I don’t think anyone should rush into making the wrong decision of being with the wrong partner,” she added.

Yemi goes on to emphasize the importance of one taking time to find a partner that suits them instead of bowing to the pressure asserted by the members of the society.
