Nigerian singer Charly Boy claims that love alone is not enough to guarantee the success of any relationship.
Area Fada as he is affectionately called, was speaking on love and commitment in relationships.
According to Charly Boy, love alone cannot make one person stick to another all year round.
He noted that what kept him in his marriage for many years despite meeting a lot of beautiful women was not just love, but self control and commitment to the one he loved.
He added that marriages that last are built on commitment and determination and not just love.
In his video he had this to say:
“I don’t know what love, do you? However, I do know about commitment.
“For me, Love can’t guarantee the success of a relationship. Love can’t make you stick to one person all year round.
“And cheating isn’t always a product of not loving your partner. In fact, loving someone does not guarantee not falling in love with another person.
“Let me tell you something, I have seen more beautiful women, romantic, sexy, curvy women for the past 41 years, in those times love did not help me, self-control did.
“Commitment kept me going. So no matter how you feel for someone else. The person you’re committed to should rank first in your life.
“In marriages that enjoy longevity, you’ll find determination and commitment at the core. Yea, everybody falls in love, it takes little or nothing to that.
“But building a relationship is for only the strong and committed. Yea, that is why we must find that person to commit to.
“Abeg oh, discipline yourself, because building a relationship is hard, it’s like building a career, it’s like building a reputation, Okay…”
