Actor and producer Ekow Smith Asante has advised Fred Nuamah not to allow himself to be cajoled into marrying when he is not ready.
According to him, the CEO of Ghana Movie Awards should take his time to find a suitable wife.
Fred remains single in his 40s and has remained resolute despite numerous comments and growing public concerns.
Last year, he promised he would get married by saying, “I will get married and shock you people.”
But Ekow thinks the pressure being mounted on Fred could be a recipe for disaster.
He said Fred shouldn’t rush into marrying because people are putting pressure on him or because all his friends are married.
“Marriage is not a race,” he cautioned Fred in the presence of some media personnel including NEWS-ONE who sought his opinion on marriage as a newly wedded husband and what he had to tell Fred who was yet to get hitched.
. “Marriage is a different thing altogether when you are in it; same way it is different how you see it from outside. Things are very different when you are in it. So I will advise you to take your time,” he added.
Ekow got married on August 15, 2015 to his long-time fiancée Nittina Sowah after dating for over four years.
Their engagement took place at Nittina’s family home at Teshie Nungua Estate in Accra and the white wedding happened immediately at the International Central Gospel Church (ICGC) Holy Ghost Temple, Frafraha in Accra.
It is likely Ekow now sees marriage differently from when he wasn’t married.
