Rapper turned singer Raoul John Njeng-Njeng better known as Skales shares his perspective on marriage and when he hopes to tie the knot.
The OHK Entertainment boss in a chat with Punch Newspaper said both music and marriage required lots of attention which makes it difficult for him to combine the both.
The singer expressed that he is actually under pressure from his mother to get married and give her grandchildren.
“Does your mum mount pressure on you to get married?
Yes, she does. She has told me many times that she cannot wait to be a grandmother and carry my children. But I keep telling her that I am not ready for marriage. I am more concerned about my work. Music is like a woman; it takes all your attention. It is hard to give music and your wife equal attention.”
Skales cited his frequent travels and busy itinerary as one major reason he cannot consider settling down at the moment.
“Does this mean you cannot combine music with marriage?
For now, it will be hard for someone like me who travels a lot. When I start a family, I will have to cut down on my travelling. We also need to understand that despite being an only child, I am still too young to get married. Marriage shouldn’t be my priority right now.”
