Gospel music sensation Irene Ingabire Kamanzi, known by the stage name Gaby Kamanzi, has warned people to stop putting her under pressure to get married.
Gaby, as she is commonly known, says she won’t take any more questions regarding her love life and has warned people to stop forcing her to get married cause it’s not yet time for her to settle down.
The talented singer lost her cool live on KT Radio on Wednesday when she was asked by a fan when she is planning to settle down and have a family, since she has already built a successful career over the years.
“People should stop asking me whether I have a man or boyfriend or not because I believe this is a personal and private matter. When I am ready, they will see it on my social media platforms but for now I am still focusing on my music,” Kamanzi said.
“I am really tired of people pressuring me to get married. I receive lots of messages on a daily basis from men asking me out and my number,” she added.
Being a famous female musician aged 40 years old, she has been faced with questions regarding her relationship status in interviews and on social media, with many asking her why she is not settling down or whether she has a boyfriend.
Others go ahead to propose to her, thinking that she is desperate for a man in her life. The singer says marriage is a personal matter.
