If you really mean well, give her until 18 years old – Di’ja condemns child marriage
Nigerian artiste, Di’ja has taken to Twitter to condmen child marriage while taking awareness about Obstetric Fistula.
The mum-of-three said women should be allowed to grow up before marriage and procreation. She called on men to wait till women are 18. She added that 18 is still too young but can be a start.
She wrote: “Our young girls need to be allowed to grow up before doing grown man and women things like marriage and anything to do with sexual reproduction. If you really mean well you will at least give her until 18 years old, while honestly guiding her spirit. Not every one means well.”
A follower mentioned that 18 is still too young and Di’ja added: “That’s why I say “at least” legally the laws. But even that IS too young. Especially in today’s world.”
