Popular TV host and gospel musician Grace Ekirapa has opened up about being a run away bride.
Back in April 2018, Grace cancelled her wedding because she believed her then fiance, was a rebound.
Speaking on Chat Spot, Grace said,
“2017 I went through a rough break-up, after relationship I was in for four years leading to marriage did not work out.”
“That same year I got into another relationship and I was heading to marriage, 2018, I got engaged in February, in March I did my traditional wedding and I was to get married on my birthday which is April 27.”
Days to the wedding Grace realised she was not in love with the groom. He was a rebound after her heart was broken.
“I realised I was making a huge mistake I wasn’t going to get into something I hadn’t thought through. I knew it wasn’t God’s idea for me, I was going get into something and hurt someone who didn’t need to be hurt.”
“The guys was in love, he was my friend but we were not good as a married couple because I had been hurt and I jumped into something, it was a rebound out of pain and I was rebelling to God, ‘I had kept myself all these years and I didn’t happen, so, I’m still gonna go and get married. I wanted to prove to people I can get married.”
“I had 400 people on my traditional wedding, a week after I had a conversation with God. I was like, I can lie to everybody but I can’t lie to myself of you. I took a break for two days and I went to pray and asked God to show me two things, to give me so much love that I would go knowing this is it or the courage to break up.”
Grace revealed that after she cancelled the wedding people attacked her badly.
“I came back and I called him and I broke it off and hell broke loose. I got backlash from everyone, I was called all kinds of names, my social media was blowing up. People did not understand. They had an opinion. If God knew that other people’s opinions were going to matter he would create us with a blank piece of paper and pen on our backs. So that everywhere you go, if you have an opinion you can write it.”
A visibly annoyed Grace said,
“Human beings, mind your own business. Noone knew what I was going through they were caring about their perspective. I stayed in my house a whole week crying not eating not sleeping.”
