The multiple award-winning artiste lost his wife in 2011, and he has been single since then.
In an interview with The Nation, the 78-year-old said only a foolish old man will get married to a young lady, who has not experienced anything in life.
While reacting to why he has not marry a young lady since his wife passed on, Obey noted that he will only consider a woman who is in her 60s, and not a young lady.
He also said for him, remarrying will be for companionship and not to bear children.
“Marry a young lady? It’s a foolish old man that will say he wants to marry a young lady. The young lady has just started her life and definitely is virile and strong. Someone like me should be thinking of a woman who is 60 or above. And when I do it soon, everyone will know,” he said.
He added: “Well, the companionship of a wife is a good thing. It is not against God’s rule. So, I am here, I can marry at any time; not just for the sake of marriage as it is, but for the sake of companionship, because what else do I want? I have children, grandchildren and even great grandchildren. So I have been blessed. It is not like I am looking for a wife that would conceive babies. As long as I still have life, you will hear when the time for marriage comes,” he said.
