These was what Mama G revealed about her early marriage:

“I was forced into marriage many years ago and i did not see any reason my parents were forcing me as i was still young. And even at that age, i had so many suitors. You know when you come from a polygamous family and your mother is struggling for her own daughters to get married and this other one is also struggling for her their daughters to get married. And when this one suitor came around and my mother said go, and i could not make a choice. I was not allowed to make a choice. At the end, i had to obey my parents. I was not brought up to disobey my parents”. – Mama G
