Read excerpts from her interview below!

What inspired your latest album, Love Wantintin?
I feel love should be celebrated. 10 years in marriage is a milestone
but when I look back, it feels just like yesterday when I got married
and to be honest with you, there was a moment in my marriage when I was
not that sure if I could make it to the next stage and then, suddenly, I
woke up one morning only to find out that I am 10 years old in the
marriage. I was so excited I wanted to celebrate and throw a party; I
wanted to write a song that talks about long lasting love; that was what
inspired Love Wantintin.
Talking about marriage, 10 years is a long time to stay married, what is the secret?
It is all about believing in God. You know, every day you have to pray
and commit your family to God; it is all about prayer. The entertainment
industry is very challenging because the spotlight is on us.
Consequently, every flaw that you have is magnified a million and one
time over. The bottom line is that one has to be very prayerful and
that’s what I do. I go on my knees and commit my family to God in
prayers and the prayers have been working; I just have this firm belief
in God.
Ten years after, could you say that your marriage has been blissful all the way?
Of course not. It has not been blissful all the way. I will be lying
through my teeth if I say that. No marriage is blissful 100 per cent of
the time. I think the joy is being able to overcome the challenges that
come, because I will be lying if I say there have been no challenges
these last 10 years. Yes, my husband and I have had our own fair share
of challenges but by God’s grace, we have surmounted each and every one,
and my prayer is that we will continue in Christ every day till death
do us part.
Could you share some of those challenges you faced in the last 10 years?
You know patience could be very challenging because it is the ability
to understand and overlook the flaws of your partner. And you know,
there are days that you just want to explode! But remember, the anger of
a man is not worth the righteousness of God. So when you allow anger to
becloud your judgment, you create a lot of problems. My husband and I
had to learn to take every negative emotion aside and dump them in the
backburner and make the Spirit of God our watchword so that our home
will be where the Holy Spirit abides.
