Iyabo, who made this statement during an episode of her TV show, Iyabo Ojo TV alongside veteran singer Charly Boy, stressed that “marriage is overrated.”

She said: “I am enjoying my relationship. I am enjoying it. Luckily for me, he [Paul Okoye] also doesn’t believe in marriage. We feel like it is overrated.”

Charly Boy concurred: “I agree with you that marriage is overrated. My son called me the other day and said, ‘Dad, why can’t people have a contract and say we will just do five years in marriage and if we are lucky and happy, we renew the contract?’

“It sounds funny but you know, there are different coping mechanisms because these days, marriage is not what it used to be when our parents got married. Marriage is a little bit muddled up now. And people are a little bit more individualistic than they used to be before. Nobody wants to serve anybody. Everybody wants to get their own. So, that’s where the problem starts.”
