Omotola Jalade Pays Tribute to Husband on Their Wedding Anniversary

Posted in: , ,
Omotola Jalade Ekeinde's new twitter profile picture

First it was the PDA at Omotola's surprise birthday party [Photos], and now the actress and wife of Matthew Ekeinde is speaking out in appreciation of her husband, whom she calls "a GOOD MAN".  Omotola and her husband are celebrating 17 years of being married, and it so happens that they got married on his birthday, so it's a double celebration. Omotola doesn't often talk about her family life [Interview], but when she does, she is always full of praises for how supportive her husband is.

Often we hear about the worrisome dysfunctional marriages, but in as much as all relationships have their ups and downs, there are quite a number of good men and happy marriages out there. I love that Omotola paid this tribute publicly to encourage those who need it, and also her good man. May we all get the good man we wish for.

Happy 17th anniversary to Omotola and Matthew Ekeinde.

Blast from the Past - Nnamdi Azikiwe and his Wife, Flora

Posted in: , ,

Pictures have a way of being the only things that survive when we pass on, and as someone who loves taking pictures, I also love looking at them especially the ones from the past. I was able to find a few old pictures, [see Awolowo and HID on their wedding day] and once in a while I'll share some of the others with explanatory news clips I can find.

Nnamdi Azikiwe (November 16, 1904 – May 11, 1996), popularly known as "Zik", was one of the leading figures of modern Nigerian nationalism. He was head of state of Nigeria from 1960 to 1966, serving as the second and last Governor-General from 1960 to 1963 and the first President of Nigeria from 1963 to 1966, holding the presidency throughout the Nigerian First Republic.

For a man of Azikiwe's stature in the history of Nigeria, not much is known about his first wife, Flora, or his family life. However, a few snippets crop up here and here. According to Emeagwali,

Dear Myne - My Girlfriend is Older and I'm Not Ready For Marriage

Posted in: ,

This request came in through facebook, and it is from a guy this time.

Hello Mrs. Myne, I've got a lil issue thought you can help with it. I'm 27, haven't had a stable relationship for 5 years, virtually since I knew about the dating thingy. Some years back I met a lady in a bus, we got talking, after which we became friends later. I made a move, she turned me down saying she's engaged. That she kept saying for 3years, but I persisted.

Then luck shone its beauteous face on me, she gave in late last year, telling me that the guy has no plans for her that she's come to love me more than him. Enough of history, now lemme break down the main issues:

1. She's 30, I could care less about that, but my folks and siblings, I don't know what their reactions will be, my mum especially.
2. My girlfriend doesn't know I'm younger, because of my sense of maturity and humour (I've actually dated older ladies before her).
3. Thirdly, my plan is to walk a lady down the aisle only when I'm 30, that's 3 years from now. That's one big thing to ask from her I think!

I await your kind response! Thanks a lot.
