Ara, renowned for being the first mainstream female drummer in Nigeria has come out to say that marriage is not on her list right now.

The drummer and singer who just turned 40 said she isn't really concerned on tying the knot.

"It is not a priority. For now, if it happens, it happens" said Ara in her interview with Encomium.

Ara separated from her husband in 2011 after two years of marriage. She was married to Prince Nurudeen Olalekan Saliu.

The marriage yielded one child, a son.

"I’ve taken this decision very painfully; and it’s particularly a tough and sensitive time for me and my son. And I plead with my friends and fans to put us in their prayers at this period" she wrote in her statement four years ago when she announced the separation.
