Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo explains why a man should be married at 24

    Published By:

    Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo and relationship coach has explained why Nigerian men should be married at the age of 24.

    The clergyman compared Nigerians Bachelor’s to their contemporaries in developed countries, stating that at age 18, many don’t live in their parents’ houses and are already exposed to responsibility.

    Pastor Kingsley Okonkwo, who is an uncle to popular Nigerian Afrobeat singer, Burna Boy, stated this in a recent video circulating on social media.

    Pastor Okonkwo’s brother, Samuel Ogulu, is Burna Boy’s father.

    His words: “I don’t know why a man should be above 23 or 24 and not be married. Your mate in animal kingdom has grandchildren, and your mate at 18 in developed countries has left their parents’ house, which exposes them to responsibility really quickly.

    But in Nigeria, you can be 28 and still be sucking your mother’s boobs, they are still sending you messages.

    Your mate in Silicon Valley at 18 or 19 are already billionaires, they’re developing things that are changing the world,” he said.

    As expected, his statement sparked outrage from Nigerians as some took to the comment section of the post to slam the preacher.

    Julezobi wrote, “The man will feed his family and extended family with Air and Water, pay bills with imagination. Take care of his kids by listening to this kind of sermon.”

    Elohim Elsha wrote, “This one is always patronizing people with his overwe!ght body. Probably cheats on his wife.”

    One Gtb said, “That’s how these pastors pass wrong information and mislead the youths. Y’all just preach love and preach the gospel”.

    Another  I Am Popular Mike wrote, “I have never heard this man preach on any pillars of the faith, Christ, eternity, holiness. It’s always a marriage, relationship, sex. Please don’t pressurize to rush into something they’re not ready for”.

    Edim David wrote, “This is so WRONG! Stop putting unnecessary pressure on people. This is why people marry wrongly.

    Another Ella of Troy said, “This guy… sometimes I don’t understand him and his wife’s preaching. Mostly his wife”.

    One Mayor wrote, “Age doesn’t determine when someone should get married. It’s a personal choice and timeline. For this economy.”

    One Ella of Troy wrote, “This guy… sometimes I don’t understand him and his wife’s preaching. Mostly his wife”.

    Another Tobiloba Amusa wrote, “To those of you attacking him. It’s obvious the situation of the country has restricted your brain. In developed countries, at 24 you are already working and in your apartment. You are already mature mentally. There is nothing bad if a 24-year-old man is married. Except he has not really found his soul mate. 2pac died at the age of 24, imagine his level of maturity when he was alive.”
