Popular Gospel artiste, Esther Igbekele has stated that her religious beliefs do not hinder her from being romantic.
According to the Christian singer-songwriter, she is a hopeless Romantic.
Esther Igbekele revealed during the interview session with Sunday Scoop that she has a social life, contrary to the cliche that Christian artistes are conservative.
Speaking during the session, Igbekele had this to say;
“I attend a lot of social functions.
Being a gospel singer does not mean I cannot be romantic too.
I have a husband and children, and I celebrate events.
The COVID-19 pandemic has even shown many of us others ways of celebrating ourselves.
I know what it means to be in love.”

The popular gospel artiste continued;
“If one is not in love, one cannot appreciate love or sing about itOne cannot know the taste of something that one has not put in one’s mouth.
If one tastes a particular thing, one would be able to describe the feeling better.
My social life is another interesting part of me. I attend a lot of parties.
I also go out with my family to the beach and other places.
My husband is a businessman, so he is usually busy but I am a romantic person 100 per cent.
“I and my husband have busy schedules but we communicate well and feel good.
I have witnessed and done a lot of surprises for clients. (But), I love things that come naturally and not staged.
There are unique things that one’s spouse would do that one could not have imagined― that is the type of surprise I like.”
