Nigeria's dancehall singer, Shank, has who made wave some years back with his reggae song, 'Julie' which is still a club banger till date, has disclosed that he is not ready for marriage or any relationship because of the high demand involved in it.

Shank speaking with Punch, noted that rather than spend his time and energy on a relationship, he would prefer to channel it into his career which is most important to him now.

He stated that he is happy that he does not have any babymama somewhere that which would have affected his career.

“Where I am right now psychologically, mentally, emotionally and work-wise, I don't need the distraction of an intense relationship at the moment because a relationship requires time and effort and I would rather put that into my music. I don't have a babymama. There is none that I know of and that is what I told them when I was asked if I had a kid at the embassy. I have been careful but don't worry, I don't shoot blanks; I shoot straight. I have just been very careful,” he said.

With the recent crop of young artistes in the industry especially the likes of Patoranking in Reggae, the singer explained he does not see him (Patoranking) as a threat.

He said, “I feel happy that finally, there is a platform for reggae artistes to be seen in the same light as any other secular act; so it is a win-win situation for me. I can never be jealous of Patoranking. There is no envy at all. I have had my moment in the spotlight and when I was on top of my game, there was nobody around to contend with me. Right now, there are a lot of people doing dancehall music and it has become a movement.
