Nigerian singer, songwriter and instrumentalist, Harrison Tare Okiri, better known by his stage name Harrysong, has revealed he doesn’t want a baby mama.
Harrysong, who once suggested he might get married in 2020, further revealed that he had suspended marriage temporarily because he was “not sure anymore.’’
According to the hitmaker, he is now focusing on his music and business.
The 39-year-old, in a Saturday Beats report, said “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 for 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.’’
Know for hits like Reggae Blues, Ebeano, Samankwe, Arabanko and a host of others, the award-winning singer said new artistes were not a threat to him.
He noted that ‘the sky is big enough’ for everyone to fly and shine, adding that their emergence was “very healthy for our industry”
He said, “These young guys are talented and I enjoy their music. Even in other countries, a time comes when young artistes spring up and it’s healthy for the music industry. It’s not a threat to me in any way. Rather, it’s very healthy for our industry. Sometimes, I don’t even know people who have booked me because you have to get through people to do that. I just know that I’m to perform somewhere and keep the date. You can criticise us, we’re open to it, when we (singers) make mistakes, we should be corrected and everyone should move on.’’
