The latest of these Nigerian men, who get women pregnant and then try to shirk their responsibility when a baby comes is Ice Prince whom RML featured in our last "Daddy Time" post. I won't say celebrities because I know this is a very common situation and there are celebs, like Tuface, who try to do the right thing. It is great that the rapper now showers love and care on his son, but according to news sources, Ice Prince recently accepted that he denied having a son when the news made headlines in March 2012.

Apart of Nike Oshinowo who has spoken out about her endometriosis and infertility, not many other Nigerian women, celebrity or otherwise have taken up the campaign to inform and educate others on the experience of endometriosis and options available to those who suffer it. I was happy to discover this new blog by a Nigerian in the UK on the subject.

At the Naija Hair Can Grow Salon Day and How my Hair was Tamed By Palm Oil and Honey

Posted in: , ,

After my 30hrs+ long journey from Seattle to Lagos, my hair felt so sticky, and it didn't help that it was due for a touch-up. So I went to a nearby salon and had them wash and blow dry it. The result was not very good, not only did the stylist add too much oily hair cream, she used the highest setting on the blow drier and brushed my hair like it was going out of fashion. I had to stop the proceedings when smoke started billowing from my hair #justhalfkidding :)
