Nigerian female vocalist, Waja has cried out on social media over claims men are allowed to remarry after they lose their wives to death but it is not so for women when their husbands die.
Waje described men ‘selfish’ for not wanting their mothers to remarry after their father dies.
The 39-year-old singer said she now appreciates her mother even more because of how she has to cope with loneliness after losing her husband.
“Some men are selfish, Fathers, brothers, sons etc. When a man loses his wife, he’s advised to marry against because people understand that he has needs. But for women, everyone assumes her needs are her children. Adulthood as taught me to appreciate my mother even more. Those years of being by herself, I secretly wonder how she coped. Children should want nothing but happiness for their parents. If finding someone other than their dad or mum, why not?”ADVERTISEMENT
