'If you really mean well you will at least give her until 18 years old' - Dija speaks on child marriage
Nigerian singer, Dija has added her voice to those of thousands of Nigerians fighting to stop child marriage in Nigeria.

The singer-songwriter, whose real name is Hadiza Blell, shared a number of tweets speaking about the subject on Twitter. She said in her tweets that women should wait until at least 18 before they engage in sexual reproduction.

She also spoke about the dangers associated with underage girls getting married early and engaging in sexual reproduction.

She said in the tweets that a man who really means well will wait for the girl he wants to marry to be at least 18 before he marries her.

She wrote: “Our young girls need to be allowed to grow up before doing grown man and women things like marriage and anything to do with sexual reproduction. If you really mean well you will at least give her until 18 years old, while honestly guiding her spirit. Not every one means well.

“DO YOU KNOW ABOUT OBSTETRIC FISTULA? Very high in young girls early marriages whose reproductive systems have not fully developed. Ya Allah we ask you for guidance. Our children cannot keep going through pain because of lack of understanding.”
