Nigerian singer, Di’Ja who recently welcomed her 3rd child has pleaded with parents to let their girl-child grow, atleast to 18 before giving her out in marriage and start doing adult things. The plea also went out to men.
Writing on twitter and explaining how MM is very common in young girls because of early marriage, Di’Ja whose real name is Hadiza Blell wrote;
“Our young girls need to be allowed to grow up before doing grown man and women things like marriage and anything to do with sexual reproduction. If you really mean well you will at least give her until 18 years old, while honestly guiding her spirit. Not every one means well.
”DO YOU KNOW ABOUT OBSTETRIC FISTULA? Very high in young girls early marriages whose reproductive systems have not fully developed. Ya Allah we ask you for guidance. Our children cannot keep going through pain because of lack of understanding.”
