Kenyan singer and actress Habida Moloney shared her thoughts on the notion that some independent women may not feel the need to have men in their lives.
Habida emphasized the significance of companionship and love, reminding women that success and financial achievements alone cannot provide the warmth and fulfilment that human relationships can bring.
In a recent interview with SPM Buzz, she spoke of meeting her husband when he was not financially well-off.
"I am not a money person. And you know I came from the US when I met him, and I had bought two homes, I had a good life. So when I came here, he looked like... we grew together," she said.
The 'Sunshine' hitmaker commented on rich and independent ladies having a mentality that they don't need men in their lives.
"I definitely need a man. Not to provide, though, but you need a man to go through life with. That's how we were created—man-woman. These women who are saying I don't need a man, they are lying. Will money keep you warm at night?" she questioned.
Habida went on to explain her perspective, emphasizing that her desire for companionship, love, and happiness outweighs any material considerations.
"There's a lot of women, including myself, that want a man, that needs a man, and we're not looking for money; we are looking for companionship and love and happiness," she emphasised.
Habida on marrying early
Habida discussed the impact of her early marriage on her career, stating that while it did present challenges, she never regretted it.
She acknowledged that finding the right person was more important than adhering to any specific timeline.
"It wasn't early. The right time is when you find the right person. I'll be honest and say I never wanted to get married; that's why it took me time. I just met someone I thought I could do life with," Habida shared.
