Twenty-one (21) years of marriage and Ceccy Twum, a well celebrated gospel musician would take her fans down reminiscence lane on how the journey started.
The beautiful songstress in her interview on ‘Restoration with Stacy’ revealed that she was very young when she got married.
According to her, Prophet Alex Twum who she has been married to for over a long time now, made his purpose known to her mom whilst the subject had not come up for discussion in their [Ceccy and Alex] conversations.
“I married at age 19,” she mentioned. “My husband and I were in the same church. I was a singer and hadn’t even prayed about marriage. My interest was in singing.”
“He didn’t talk to me about marriage. He rather told my mother. So I asked why he had to tell my mum when I’m the one he’d marry.”
In the interview monitored by GhanaWeb, Ceccy Twum reckoned her husband’s steps was premise on the fact that her mom would have to provide her consent before the wedding could see the light of day.
“I think the reason he rather told my mum was the fact that I was very young and so even if I say ‘yes’ to him, my mother would have the final say,” she stated.
After the information got to her mom, she got her in a discussion and requested why she would want to marry early instead of waiting a little longer and “undergo life”. Although she understood her mom, she thought the time was ripe except that she never dreamt of marrying God’s servant.
“I never thought of marrying a pastor. I didn’t want to be restricted; I wanted a free life. Till date, if you try to restrict me, I become worried. But my husband isn’t an oppressor. He gives me the room to operate; it’s been very helpful,” she said.
