By Rita Chioma
Benita Okojie, the once-upon-a-little girl that thrilled Nigerians with soul lifting gospel songs many years ago, is all grown up and ready to get married.
In a recent interview with Nneka Nwaneri, when asked about plans for marriage, Ms Okojie said: “When it is the right time, I will marry my own because marriage is something you shouldn’t rush into. It is a life time thing. You need the leading of the Holy Spirit and if you rush into it, you will rush out. So, I am taking my time to listen to the voice of God, so that I will get married at the right time to the right person.It could be this year or next year. “
Describing her ideal man, she confirmed that she is already in a relationship which has been ordained by God: “What kind of man does not count at this point now because I am already in a relationship. Of course, he would have possessed the qualities I wanted for me to have chosen him and be in a relationship with him. Above all, it is God who chooses people for us, and more importantly, I want a man that loves God and believes in my ministry.”
