Denola Grey, a Britain-based Nigerian content creator and fashion consultant shares his thoughts on marriage with Reystyless on his podcast, dressedtoconfess.

To the question “why African parents are so obsessed with marriage”, he responded,

“I don’t know why they are so obsessed with marriage and a lot of them aren’t happy in their marriage, like the older generation. So you want me to like meet someone and marry them and just be managing them. I don’t know, I hate slavery.”
