He further disclosed him and Sheilah are still chasing their goals and ambitions that marriage is not their first priority for now .
“No.. I wouldn’t call it a mentality but I have traveled and I’m exposed to different cultures, and this rushing of, you know, getting married, and having kids when you are not ready; I’m not ready to marry someone’s daughter or have kids. I’ve been in Uganda… and I’ve seen what my family went through, and I wouldn’t want my child to be in that position, if I’m not ready, say financially… the things I want for my child, I’ve not gotten them yet,” Manrick said.
He added ” I would want my child maybe to be in the Arsenal [Football Club] academy. I don’t have that yet. I haven’t yet gotten to that level. And we are still working. So, we have goals and ambitions.”
