Published

Popular Nigerian musician, Harrison Okiri, popularly known as Harrysong has opened up on why he put his marriage on hold.

Speaking with Saturday Beats, the 39-year-old who once hinted he’ll be getting married in 2020, noted that he had suspended marriage temporarily because he was “not sure anymore.’’

Harrysong said; “Everything about marriage has been suspended for now. I’m focusing more on my music and business. The truth is that I’m still young and having the passion to settle down early is a normal feeling. When you meet someone and don’t really connect is a pointer of what could happen later in life. 

You can’t manage yourself into a life-time journey, you have to be 100 per cent sure. In my case, I wasn’t so sure anymore. There are some things I can’t talk about. For now, I have to manage it on my own.’’

“As long as you’re above 20 years, you should be eligible for marriage. As a celebrity, distraction can be one of the reasons of not getting married early but finding the right person is very important.

“Personally I don’t support having a baby mama even though it’s a common phenomenon nowadays. Having a baby mama is a personal decision. I don’t have a baby mama because I don’t want it.’

I don’t think he should be under that tag [of being overrated or underrated]. Let’s just leave him up there on that pedestal.”

I’m versatile.” Blaqbonez goes further to say the era of championing himself as the “Best Rapper in Africa” or BRIA (for short) is over, that he only went with the vibe because of the response he got from saying those words in one of his songs and since people cared much about what he had to say, he used the BRIA tag to his advantage, taking his music to the mainstream forefront; even testifying to the fact that many rappers call themselves ‘the best’ on their songs but no one really pays attention.
