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.

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
