0

Popular Nigerian singer, Di’Ja has spoken against child marriage via a series of tweets she shared on her official handle.

Child marriage is predominant in the northern part of Nigeria where Di’Ja hails from. It is no surprise to see her lending her voice in the movement to end child marriage.

The mum-of-three demanded that women be allowed to grow up before marriage and procreation.

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 everyone means well.”

She also used the opportunity to create awareness for Obstetric Fistula, which is very high in girls subjected to early marriages.

She wrote:

DO YOU KNOW ABOUT OBSTETRIC FISTULA? Very high in young girls early marriages whose reproductive systems have not fully developed. Ya Allah we ask you for guidance. Our children cannot keep going through pain because of lack of understanding.
