Celebrated gospel singer Esther Wahome has defended marriage saying people should stop calling it a scam.
The songbird dismissed claims that most marriages don’t last saying people should start focusing on successful marriages.
“Look at my life. Let us start talking about the successful marriages that we have since they are many in the industry,” she said.
“Someone like Sarah K is over 30 years in marriage, and singer Jemimah Thiong’o is almost 40 years married. Even in the secular world, we have, Wahu and Nameless, so marriage is not a scam in my opinion,” the singer said.
Esther Wahome mentioned that she has been married for close to three decades now.
“I have been married for 26 years to a great man who every day pushes me to be what God wants me to be without forcing me to be in the limelight,” she said.
The mother of three also spoke about her family, saying she prefers keeping them private.
Her firstborn cleared university, the secondborn is in high school and the lastborn is almost joining high school.
“I don’t post them apart from the one who finished university. She took herself online since she is over 18,” Wahome said.
“My family is private and I love to choose my battles, but I have a beautiful marriage,” she said.
On gospel artistes who quit the industry, the ‘Kuna Dawa’ hitmaker said only the real servants of God survive the industry.
“If you keep real, you will survive and you will be a blessing coz there is a generation you are serving,” she said.
“If it’s for money and clout, you won’t last since there are forces that require one to be true and prayerful when doing gospel music. You will do a hit and quit the industry and leave us who are truly serving our purpose.”
