Iyanya who just turned the big 30 on Monday, has been linked to a good number of celebrity females from Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson to socialite Freda Edewor Francis, while many of his female fans who are there for the body would like him to remain single, the newly signed Mavin act says he wishes he got married before becoming famous.

Speaking in an interview with The Net, when asked why unlike his industry colleagues he hasn’t gotten married or has a baby mama he said,

I’ll be honest, it’s not very easy, If I had my way, I would have been married a long time ago by now people will be seeing my kids. It’s not very easy trying to get this music right and then adding marriage to it.
