I wooed my husband: Aisha Yesufu advises single women
Legit.ng previously reported that Aisha Yesufu revealed that she wooed her husband herself.
The mother of two stated that she always advises women in their 30s and upwards not to wait until a man approaches them before they get married.
According to her, women should approach men they like and ask for their hand in marriage.
"On the advice I give young women is that they should stop waiting for a man to come and meet them. You are more than 30 and going into your 40s and 50s and you say you are waiting for a man to come and woo you. How will that happen. It doesn't matter even if you are older than him. The matter of marriage is serious. So, don't just sit down and wait for anyone that comes your way."
