Okojie wrote on her Instagram, "Don’t sell your self short just because of a ring and change in Status! There’s a blessing in Waiting. Waiting for God’s Time."

"The pressure is real and so many people who married because of pressure will tell you that you shouldn’t make that decision just because there’s pressure to."

Okojie advised her audience to be prayerful and trust only in God. She encouraged them to focus on exchanging values and interests.

"Don’t sit at home. Meet people, Share your values, Interests and faith as you prayerfully trust God to bring you the Mr Right."

"The greatest tragedy in life is to marry someone else’s Rib because your destinies are intertwined. May You find your own Rib!"
