Nigerian musician, Chinko Ekun has stated that Valentine’s Day ought to encompass more than just romantic relationships between couples.
The “Able God” crooner stated in an interview with Saturday Beats that Valentine’s Day, which is typically observed only by those in romantic relationships, should actually be used to express love to one’s parents, siblings, and even coworkers.
Chinko Ekun disclosed that he typically receives gifts on Valentine’s Day, regardless of the size, from his security guard and family members.
He said; “Valentine’s Day should not be restricted to only those in love. During Valentine, I usually get gifts for my friends, my lawyer, my mother, and my sister. Even those around me, such as my security guy, get something from me on Valentine’s Day, no matter how small. I usually go out on dates for Valentine’s Day, but most times, I am busy with shows.”
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, he also discussed his recently released tune, “Wait,” which aims to emphasise the significance of gaining clarity in relationships.
In his words; “I released a new song in the course of the week, featuring Ozed. The song asks a lady what she wants from the relationship; whether is it love, money or attention. That is because clarity is one of the things people like to shy away from. But, I think that in any relationship, clarity is needed at some point.”
The former YBNL star revealed that although he was scheduled to play at a Valentine’s Day party, he had no intentions to go out on Valentine’s Day.
