Award - winning musician , Jaywon , who just unleashed his hidden talent in acting , has said he doesn ’ t think marriage is for him . Even though Iledare Oluwajuwonlo welcomed a child in 2016 , he said that he didn ’ t think marriage was for him , adding that he was still single as he had yet to find the right woman.
“ One of the things I look for when it comes to having a relationship is happiness and being able to manage each other ( me and my partner ) . I don ’ t think I need marriage ; all I need is a best friend that we can just be together and understand each other for the rest of our lives , have kids and build an empire together.
“ I feel that when the word marriage comes into the picture , that is when the problem starts . Everybody starts to feel like they have a right and all that . We can just be best friends and be together forever; it is more important than calling it marriage . If it is a partnership , then let it be so , if we can pray , make money and have children together . I don ’ t need any other thing .
“ If I can have all that , I am okay ; marriage has destroyed a lot of people. I am not married yet because I have yet to find the right woman. I feel if there is no love , we cannot progress . Even in a company , if there is no love , the company won ’ t grow . I have been heartbroken many times in the past ; ‘ Saro ’ my song , is a true life story.
“ My son is the most important thing to me right now; everybody knows I travel a lot . Each time I travel out of the country , I get to pay him a visit . The only reason why he has not visited Nigeria is because he needs to grow , he is still growing. I don ’ t care about what the society thinks , the society has killed a lot of people and messed them up because they put the society before themselves , ” he said.
Asked about his recent appearances in movies , the ‘ This Year’ crooner said he had always had a talent for acting , describing it as a hobby.
According to him , he is not into acting because of money.
“ Acting is more of a hobby to me; I felt it was high time I started answering their calls . I have always received scripts , but I wasn ’ t responding because acting is time -consuming . I have a lot of friends in the movie industry , so I had to support them when they called me to the movie scene.
“ It cannot affect my music career. I only do it when I am free; if I am not available, I won’ t do it. They need to work their schedule to work with mine. I am not doing it for the money . Being creative has never been for the money . I will only take roles that align with my personality, ” he said.
Also speaking to one of our correspondents about his recent single , ‘ Aje , ’ he noted that it was inspired by people who gave up on their dreams due to hardship.
“ Aje is about people giving up on their dreams due to hardship . Working and not getting paid can make people give up on their life and dreams . My music is generally about what I have been through . I want to make sure I leave something tangible for my son . I don ’ t plan to have many kids ; I want to give them the best . I want to really rest in peace when I die , ” he said.
