Highlife musician George Kwabena Adu, popularly called Kwabena Kwabena, has expressed regret for failing to heed the advice of his parents before marriage.
The veteran singer tied his second knot in 2010 at the forecourt of His Majesty’s (HM) in La, a suburb of Accra.
Some few years down the line, the award-winning highlife musician and wife divorced due to allegations of infidelity levelled against him by his wife.
Reacting to this on Adom FM, the ‘Bue Kwan’ song maker said even though he believes marriage adds value to life, he regrets rushing into it.
He said “I believe in marriage as a very good thing. With the way I was raised I wanted to settle down but it is just that it has been unfortunate.”
“I think for me the little I have learnt is that I never listened to my parents. I have learnt my lessons now…,” he added.
Kwabena Kwabena having learnt from his mistake said, “I believe in marriage [but] I believe if you have the right partner with the same focus it will work.”
He, therefore, urged couples planning to marry to concentrate on each other to avoid facing similar problems.
“What I would advise is that the young people who are so much in a hurry to marry should take their time. I pray the good Lord puts me in a better place next time…” Kwabena Kwabena added.
