Omawumi discusses what she has learnt in marriage
Nigerian singer Omawumi tied the knot secretly earlier this year in January 2018. She got married traditionally to her long time lover, Tosin Yusuf who is the father of her first daughter Kamilah Yusuf.
Recently, she was in a chat with Showtime and she revealed what she has learnt so far from marriage and motherhood.
In her words:
“Marriage and motherhood has taught me to be extremely patient; it has taught me to always understand that everybody has their side to a story. It has also taught me to be very understanding towards everybody. To an extent, it still boils down to patience; you don’t put too much load on people or have too much expectation of people. Always be ready to receive people with love and forgiveness. I think the best way to explain it is that being a parent has made me understand my relationship with God”.
On if motherhood has impacted her music career she said:
“Yes of course. It has really helped and influenced or rather shaped my music and the way I put music out right now. Of course, one has to be extra careful; because you don’t want to pass the wrong message. Motherhood has been a blessing to my music; it has been a blessing to me. It has been a blessing to everything surrounding me”.
