Are You Living Life to The Full As a Single and Waiting?

Posted in: , , , , ,

By Eniola Ake

The society has placed so much pressure on single women so much that some single women go to any length to get married or have a man. Yet most women aren't happy even with all the measures they have employed in having a man. Towards the period of finding a life partner, some women then begin to make adjustments in their behavior, character or personality.

To All My Ladies - This is a World Cup Year (Waiting for June 12)

Posted in: , , , ,

By BabaWilly

I might as well put it in writing my darling, I might as well put pen to paper my love. My reasons are simple, you can read. And to that great insight, I add that just like the elephant, you never forget. In addition to that similarity I would venture to say that your footprints have left an indelible mark. I know that there are cynics out there who will say ‘she walks all over him’ on reading this, but just look at me. Since you walked into my life, things have never been the same.  My life has improved a hundred fold.

Marriage Financial Times - Why Keeping Joint Accounts is to Your Advantage

Posted in: , ,

The reason why I chose to address this issue as 'Marriage Financial Times' is to make it sound like 'New York Times', a newspaper. We all know the essence of newspapers and we either agree or disagree with some of its contents, we all have our opinions and we all have our different understandings and perspectives of it. That's probably what this post will be like.

To The Culture Police - Stop Bullying Married Women To Change Their Name

Posted in: , , ,

I saw the interview a day late and had to laugh at the answers Chimamanda Adichie, a woman after my heart, gave to the Sun newspaper interviewers as she lent her voice to gender equality. See, men don't HAVE to change their names after marriage, yet some Nigerians won't let a married woman rest. These Nigerian journalists wanted to do oversabi for Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and got it served to them. (Read full interview here)

An Oba was once asked during a television interview how many children he had. I was a child at the time and waited for an answer. He looked at the ceiling for inspiration, coughed and swiped at an imaginary house fly (or perhaps it was a palace fly) before giving the answer. ‘Children are a blessing from God and not to be counted like cattle’.

This is Onyeka Onwenu, the lady of songs, as you've never seen her before. The actor, politician and one of the foremost musicians in Nigeria was once a "FIT" lady, keeping in shape by lifting weights.

What Omotola Got Wrong About Gender Equality And Why I Believe In It

Posted in: , ,

I just posted OMOTOLA JOLADE EKEINDE's interview where she talks about not believing in Gender Equality. She said "I don’t believe in gender equality. I do not believe that God made man and woman to be equal in any way", and then goes on to explain how allowing her husband to be the head of their home had made her marriage successful. There is something very wrong in that answer.
