be bound together by a ring. If you love someone, you don’t have to be married to that person for you to show that you are in love. There are a lot of couples living together who are not married and their relationsh­ip is blissful. I think marriage is overrated, so people shouldn’t put ladies or men under the pressure of getting married. Marriage is a good thing but it is not a necessity or a do-or-die affair. If a lot of people think like this, there would be less pressure or death for people trying to keep their marriages. My family has not been taking it easy with me over my school of thought but it is my life at the end of the day.

“I get very funny messages but it’s getting better now. Before, some people would ask me how much I would collect to show my body on video. They would say they want to see my nakedness and some would send a picture of their manhood to me and show their face. They are doing all this to sexualise me. There were even fat people who would send me messages that I should stop disgracing them. The same girls I am fighting for, I see them condemning me and saying bad things about me.”
