Posted in: , , , ,

Tonto Dike is a well known actress and has now began to make her mark in the Nigerian music industry. The actress been part of the production of many Nollywood films though her appearance in movies seems to have dwindled in the past year as her music career took off. Only a few days ago, Tonto celebrated her birthday, and was then announced by DBanj, head of DB Records, as the Duchess of that label.

Tonto Dike is very active on social media where she often refers to herself as POKO and it seems that is the name she prefers for her music. The actress cum singer who has released three singles and performed them live on stage on a couple of occassions is to be known now as POKO LEE as one of the LEE Family. All members of D’banj’s record label, DB Records are to take the Lee last name for their stage names.

At this point, I can't help asking, which do you prefer? Tonto the actress, or Poko Lee the singer?

Sex Education For Married Women, Have You Read This?

Posted in: , , ,

The text from the picture above is suppossedly an extract from a sex education school textbook for girls, printed in the 50s or 60's to help women to enjoy sex with their husband and keep their home.

However, according to those that know better, the extract is a fabrication. It didn't surface until long after the text began circulating by email and is "clearly a mock-up". It is just possible that it dates from the 50s - presumably as a satire on contemporary images of the ideal housewife. On balance it's likely to be far more recent, however. It is said  to have been circulating in faxed form since the 1980s.

Read the text in full below, and laugh. Or maybe not. In this day and age, some people still think this is how sex in marriage should be. Do you agree?

Former Abductee Speaks on Being Raped By Boko Haram and The Baby She Has For Shekau

Posted in: , , , ,

Meenah Dawah (not real name), was kidnapped after she was forced to watch her parents being shot dead and held captive by Boko Haram for 27 months. She has told her shocking story to 1Q4 news, and says she was raped by multiple men and has a baby which may belong to Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau.

Meenah was kidnapped at 17 from her village in Konduga town, northern Nigeria by the dreaded sect after the massacre that claimed her family and has been moved around a lot since then. She only regaind her freedom after the Nigerian Military sacked the Boko Haram camp where she was held at the time.

However, though Meenah is free from the terror of the Boko Haram, she is now facing the stigma of having been raped and having a child that belongs to a terrorist. I wonder if there is a fund to help these victims of the Boko Haram violence against women?
