AS A MUSICIAN, ACTOR, COMEDIAN AND OAP, HOW DO YOU BALANCE THESE COMMITMENTS WITH YOUR PERSONAL LIFE?
It is all about prioritizing. Women have the innate ability to multi-task. What I do is I set priorities. This morning I did TV presenting from 7 to 8:30am, took a break for an hour before I went for a radio show. And as women we want to achieve so much, don’t let anything hold you down. All you have to do is set priorities.
PRESENTLY YOU ARE DIVORCED AND A SINGLE MOM. HOW ARE YOU COPING?
I am not divorced yet I am still in the process. We are in court already and it will be done in a few month. Being a single mom is one of the most challenging things I have ever faced and I am writing a book because a lot of people demonize single moms. There is no rule book that tells you this is how you should go about it, you learn as you grow older. You face a lot of challenges. What I do is focus on the important which is the up-bringing of my children. In my case, my kids’ father and I talk; we have a good relationship. But the only thing is that we don’t live in the same house and the kids relate well with both parents
WOULD YOU GIVE MARRIAGE A SECOND SHOT?
I would love to be married again. I won’t tell you if I am waiting for it to come. I am just asking God to help me get through this. However, if I meet someone I consider good enough, that would understand me, of course, I will be willing to try again because marriage is a great institution.
