have a bunch of kids and continue to live, impact my world and make a

Speaking with Genevieve Magazine in August on the pressure to marry, here’s what Linda Ikeji said:
pressure is so intense right now I feel like going to husband market –
if there is any such thing- to buy myself some breathing space. Give me a

pressure to marry, a woman also yearns for a man and marriage; and this
is irrespective of her success.
