Emmy Kosgei shocked many when she decided to settle down with her much older Nigerian husband. For a lady who could still land an eligible bachelor, why would she settle for what we term as an ancestor-husband?
But it turns out the gospel musician was very much in love with her pastor husband. So much so that her dress sense is also affected by his preferences. She revealed this information to Parents magazine.
The Ololo hit-maker said that her hubby, Anselm Madumbuko loves seeing her in figure-hugging clothes while at home leaving her with no choice but to don them.
In the interview Kosgei said she loves flowing clothes specifically when on stage performing but usually slide in tight clothes at home so that her hubby can enjoy the view of her perfect African curves.
“IN LAGOS, I WEAR VERY FITTING CLOTHES BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT MY HUSBAND LIKES. BUT WHEN I’M DOING CONCERTS I LIKE FLOWING CLOTHES BECAUSE I AM COMFORTABLE, I AM FREE. I CAN LIFT MY LEGS, I CAN JUMP AND IT’S STILL DECENT TO EVERYBODY. IT’S NOT LIKE I’M HIDING ANYTHING, IT’S JUST WHEN I AM SINGING IN FRONT OF PEOPLE I AM VERY CAUTIOUS OF HOW I DRESS AND I DON’T WANT ANYTHING TO TAKE AWAY THE ATTENTION FROM MY PERFORMANCE. SOMETIMES, THE STAGE IS HIGH AND IF YOU WEAR SHORT CLOTHES YOU CAN DISORGANIZE THE AUDIENCE.”
Emmy had been responding to questions on how to manage and stay in a solid marriage. Her revelation will most likely leave a number of her fans in surprise considering the stereotype that a Christian marriage is very conservative. And conservative is not sexy, or is it?
I think Emmy speaking up about a taboo subject in the church like desire and desire aroused should be commended. Desire and sex go hand in hand. Sex and sexual practices in the confines of marriage are rarely if ever spoken about in the church setting that she comes from.
As if Christians don’t cohabit.
