YESTERYEAR hitmaker Tendai “Sasa” Chidarikire is not desperate to marry despite being in his 40s.Chidarikire, who is the son to Mashonaland West minister of State Faber, told the Weekend Post that he will not rush to marry and has no regrets for reaching thus far alone without a life partner.
“I believe age is nothing but a number and being old is just an attitude,” said the Ndiringe singer.
“I am married to my music. I am working so hard to break into international stardom; I have witnessed a number of artistes who failed to make it in life despite their talents as they gave in to societal demands
“My uncle Ricksen Chasumba was a great musician but he did not go far with his career as he was ordered to quit by his wife,” said Chidarikire.
The MuZezuru singer said ladies are too demanding.
“Women have their needs and desires which they expect their partners to meet or satisfy.
“At the moment, I do not have time to commit in satisfying someone’s needs as I have a lot of work to accomplish in my lifetime.
“Apart from that, I am too selective when it comes to the issue of women as I prefer beauty with brains, not just a lady.
“When I am ready to marry, I will look for someone who is God-fearing, not an opportunist who is after my fame in showbiz or because I am the son of the Mashonaland West minister of State,” he said.
Chidarikire, who is among the first musicians in the country to feature on Channel O television with his Ndiringe video, is looking to marry a foreign lady.
“I really appreciate Zimbabwean ladies, they are beautiful and they have all what can interest a man, but I want to look outside the country like what President Robert Mugabe did on his first marriage when he settled for a Ghanaian lady — Sally (Sarah Francesca Hayfron),” said Chidarikire.—Vasco Chaya
