In a recent chat with media men in Lagos, Dumelo said he has grown to understand that most marriages are failing because people go into it with a wrong mindset.

In his words, "I have seen a lot of people talking about marriage, a lot of people getting into marriage early, and divorcing early.I think people just love the idea of marriage but don't know how to stay in marriage."

Continuing, he said, "They like the idea of love but don't have the idea of how to stay in love or be in love, so since I have some followers, I decided to put it in writing and advice people not to rush into marriage because your friends or cousins are getting married or because you want to have beautiful wedding pictures. Marriage is making it work and that is what is failing a lot of marriages these days because people go into it with the wrong mindset.

"These reasons are why I am taking my time before getting married and of course, there are plans of getting married soon."

When asked if he might be looking at settling down with his colleague, Yvonne Nelson going by the bond which they have continued to share over the years, Dumelo simply said no.

"Yvonne Nelson is just my friend, I mean we have enjoyed a beautiful friendship over a long period of time and we had some misunderstanding but I just thought about it and wondered, hey life is short, let's bury the hatchet and move on as good friends that we have always been."

However, Dumelo didn't completely write off the idea of following the steps of Chris Attoh, who is married to a Nigerian saying if the opportunity comes, he won't shy away from it.
