Controversial Nigerian lawyer and social media influencer, Ifunanya Excel has said she doesn’t want to get married or have children because it would “tie” her down.
She stated this in a recent interview with Yangi Media.
She said, “I am very ambitious. And I know marriage and children will tie me down. I grew up in a certain kind of home where me and my siblings experienced a lot of emotional neglect from our parents. And because of that, I have grown to know what is expected of me as a parent. I know that if I’m going to have a child, I have to give my child a 100 per cent dedication.
“And looking at my life and my goals and the things I want to achieve, I know that I won’t be able to adequately be a present parent and also be chasing my dreams. So, I just think it’s best not to have any.”
Ifunanya said people always tell her that with time her mindset would change but she does not think it will.
She added that everyday she sees reasons why her mindset on marriage and children will never change.
