  1. Africa is a large continent, blessed with many tribes and cultures, from the zulu’s, to the xhosas, to the himbas, to the Igbos, Hausas and Yorubas, the diverse black continent can rightly boast of about three thousand African Tribes. A tribe in Uganda has come under the radar, due to its way of preparing its women for marriage differs completely from other African tribes. In many African cultures, aunties provide counseling to their young nieces as they age from adolescence to adulthood. When it comes to marriage, these aunties prepare their nieces for the challenges that lie ahead. The question now is ‘How much influence should aunties have on their nieces? Well, for the Banyankole people in Southwestern Uganda, the aunt does more than the above, especially during the marriage. When a couple wants to get married, the primary responsibility of the bride’s aunt is to carry out a sexual check on both her niece and her nephew-in-law. Essentially, the aunt does this by having sex with the groom to check his potency and virility. She also has to “test” if the bride is still a virgin before they are allowed to consummate their marriage. In other traditions, the aunt is said to go as far as listening in or watching as the bride and groom have sex in order to prove the couple’s potency. Inasmuch as this practice may sound weird, it shows how the people of Banyankole hold V!rg!n!ty in high esteem. As soon as a Banyankole girl is eight, she goes through a lot of restrictions to prepare her for marriage. When other children her age in other cultures are out having fun and playing, a girl in this part of Uganda is mostly kept indoors, where she is fed beef and millet porridge and forced to drink milk in large quantities so that she becomes fat. Being fat is synonymous with beauty among the Banyankoles. When she starts developing B.reasts, she is also asked by her parents to abstain from sexual activities. It is the duty of a Banyankole father to find a wife for his son as he pays the bridewealth as well. This consists of some cows, goats and pots of beer, depending on how rich a person is. Once the bride price is paid, the marriage preparations begin. On the wedding day, there is a lot of feasting at the bride’s home, where the father is expected to slaughter a bull. At the bridegroom’s home, there is another feast where the marriage is consummated. This is after the bride’s aunt has “tested” her niece’s purity and slept with the groom to also check his potency.
  2. It has just been reported that the 10 years marriage between Yoruba actress Ireti Isayemi to former Super Story production manager/associate producer, Bakare Adeoye, allegedly crashes. They had two kids together. According to blogger Kemi Ashefon, she disclosed that friends and family of the couple are trying to bring them together but the actress seems to have moved on with her life. She added that the actress has already moved out of her matrimonial home. Osayemi is allegedly enjoying a new love life of an Ilaro, Ogun state-based businessman who reportedly spoils her silly with luxurious gifts. It was also revealed that the businessman, who is also a hotelier and big socialite is doing all he could to keep her. Although he is reportedly married but news has it that the actress is the apple of his eye. A close friend who remained anonymous disclosed that: “She is a pretty woman and it takes a rich man to keep ladies of her ilks. She has been exposed to wealthy men by virtue of her profession and the lowly life Bakky was thrusting at her didn’t make her happy. She opted out.”
  3. Gov. Mohammed Abubakar of Bauchi on Friday gave out a 20-year-old physically-challenged spinster, Hauwa Muazu, in marriage to Mr. Shehu Idris, a staff of the Specialists’ Hospital, Bauchi. The governor and his wife, Mrs. Hadiza Mohammed, served as the father and mother of the bride, who grew up at the State Orphanage Home, having been abandoned by her unidentified parents, 20 years ago. Speaking to NAN after the wedding formalities, the groom, 36-year-old Idris, said he met his “sweetheart” barely “one month ago”, and got attracted by her smashing beauty. “The bride was introduced to me by someone just barely one month ago and I visited her immediately at the Orphanage Home. I declared my intention to marry her because I love her; she is a lady with dignity and respect,” said Idris, who already has a wife before marrying the orphan. “She (Hauwa) is an orphan and I know that she is government’s child; I promise to accord her full respect and pledge not to betray her either,” he said. Idris said that the bride would be accommodated in a separate apartment to ensure peaceful coexistence in the family. Also speaking to NAN, the bride expressed delight for bidding farewell to spinsterhood. Maryam Zubairu, Head of the Orphanage Home, told NAN that a caregiver had been attached to the bride to help in domestic activities considering her physical condition. On Wednesday, wife of the State Governor, Mrs. Hadiza Mohammed, had organized a pre-wedding luncheon for the bride, where she said the government would continue to support orphans in the state. “The bride is not an orphan completely because she has the Governor as her father and me as her mother. “We will continue to support her even in her marital home,” she said.
  4. I GOT MORE JOBS, MONEY AFTER TONTO DIKEH’S MARRIAGE CRISIS ALLEGATIONS – ACTRESS, ROSALINE MEURER In an interview with Punch, Nollywood actress, Rosaline Meurer, who was accused of being the cause of marital issues between Tonto Dikeh and her husband, Olakunle Churchill, has said that Tonto Dikeh’s marriage crises was a blessing to her. Read: Tonto Dikeh/Olakunle Churchill The stones that were thrown at me with intentions to bring me down last year when I was used to cover up a marriage crisis turned around to be in my favor with God on my side. I got more jobs and more money. At first, I was bothered; then I realized that so many other innocent people were used and lied on as well in the same situation. Out of respect for the head of the family and because I and my family have come a long way with him even before I relocated to Nigeria, I decided to let go. I don’t have any relationship with Tonto Dikeh; I only know her to be Mr. Churchill’s ex-wife.
  5. The honeymoon period in most marriages has a shelf life. But does that mean you can’t bring back those fluttery butterfly feelings of excitement and anticipation everyone experiences at the beginning of a relationship? Absolutely not. All marriages manoeuvre through rough patches. Some don’t survive long enough to come out the other side unscathed. But many do. Here are 11 ways to keep your marriage fresh. 1. Remind your partner (and yourself) that you appreciate them. After you’ve been married for many, many years, that passionate kiss when your partner walks in the door can easily morph into a peck on the check that can then morph into an inability even to look up from your computer. Over the course of my 23-year marriage, there are times when I’ve felt my own husband and I were starting to become so familiar with each other that we were settling into a stultifying — albeit comfortable — routine. But there’s a real danger in that. Studies show that nearly half of men who have cheated say it was because of emotional dissatisfaction — and not sex. When men don’t feel connected or appreciated by their wives, they are vulnerable to the advances of any attractive woman who casts a lustful glance their way. And fellows, it works the other way as well. 2. Say thank you for the little things. I’ve been guilty of keeping score, constantly calculating who had done what. “I cleaned out the kids’ closets, so you have to clean the basement.” “I moved for your job when we first got married, so now you need to move for mine.” “I initiated sex last time, so now it’s your turn.” But playing tit for tat is childish and will do nothing but chip away at the trust and connection you’ve built with your spouse. If you are so inclined, keep score of all the positive things your partner does in a day — and then thank them. Hopefully they’ll get the hint and do the same for you. 3. Practice honesty, even when you’re ashamed. If you have maxed out a credit card or two and find yourself hiding the bills each month, you can bet it’s going to come back to bite you. Eventually, whether you’re applying for a home loan or simply talking about the costs of summer vacation, these kinds of money issues will either be brought to light by a credit report or by the simple fact you can’t afford a trip away. Although infidelity usually happens in bed, it also can happen with money. And it will be a tough road gaining back your spouse’s trust if you’ve lied about overspending. Along that same vein, if you feel you aren’t connecting with your partner the way you used to, you need to say something — now. I’ve learned this lesson the hard way. I once let communication issues fester for months on end, failing to verbalize my displeasure, and my husband and I wound up in marriage counseling for nearly a year. It took a third party — and a real investment on our part — to get us back on track. If I had not kept telling myself that things would get better on their own, we might not have reached what I call the danger zone. 4. Take care of your appearance. With many years and a few kids under your belt, it’s easy to let your appearance slide. Think about when you first met your partner. Would you have walked around in stained sweatpants and without brushing your teeth? My guess is no. I’m not saying you have to look like Julianne Moore every time you settle in for a night of TV. But I’ve seen too many couples transform from Cliff and Clair Huxtable into Dan and Roseanne Connor — with disastrous repercussions. Sometimes my husband will say “wow, you look nice” as I’m walking out the door for a girls’ night out. At least pay your spouse the same courtesy you do your friends by fixing yourself up for him or her every once in awhile. 5. Foster relationships outside your marriage. I’ve been going on girls’ trips for as long as I’ve been married. Yes, I love traipsing off with my spouse and three kids. But these weekends away with friends are also important. Swapping stories with others and enjoying new experiences make me — I hope — a more interesting person for my spouse to be around. When Katie Couric asked Barbra Streisand the secret to her happy 14-year marriage to James Brolin, she replied “time apart.” “It gets romantic because even the conversations on the phone get more romantic. You need some distance,” Streisand said. Your marriage should be your primary relationship — but it needn’t be the only one. 6. Watch your words. There are many things you should never say to a longtime spouse, the first being: “Don’t you think our new neighbor is attractive?” That’s a question you just think you want to know the answer to. It’s also never a good idea to start a sentence with: “You know it’s always been your problem that…” Who wants to hear that from their partner? We hopefully all have a pretty good sense of ourselves at this point and having someone you love point out a failing in this way does little to engender a loving relationship. “You always…” or “You never…” Think about it. Neither of these is true. If you start a sentence with these words your mate is certain to shut down or start a fight. Stop for a minute and think about what you really mean to say — and then say that instead. 7. Put away the jumper cables yourself. In life, there are big things and there are little things. The big things — draining the bank accounts to support a gambling habit, forgetting to mention that he’s in the federal witness relocation program living under a false identity or that he has a second family stashed in Queens — are of course one-way streets to divorce court. But most of us don’t have problems of that magnitude. Most of us have problems that are more like petty and repeated annoyances, which when fed the steroids of resentment and anger, balloon up like Arnold Schwarzenegger. And we all know what steroids did to his heart, right? Most of our problems start out small enough — he borrows the jumper cables from your car and then leaves them sitting in the driveway just waiting to get run over — and from that sprouts a giant festering sore. It leads you to utter words like, “If you loved me you would have put the jumper cables back in my car so that when I get stuck in a bad neighborhood with a dead battery I could save myself,” which, in my household, generally results in a reply like “When do you ever drive in bad neighborhoods?” It is the small annoyances that, if left unaddressed, do us in. For a happier marriage, address them right away and keep it simple. “Honey, did you put jumper cables back in my car?” 8. Relish the silence. Sometimes the best way to address a problem is to just walk away from it — as in seriously let it go. Not every slight must be addressed. Know that not every insult is intended. Practice letting go as much as you can. Forgive more. Forget more. Bite your tongue until the tip bleeds. And once in a while, remind yourself of why you married this person. Focus on those reasons and let stuff pass without mention. The trick to successful silence, however, is that you really let the problem pass. If you stay silent and still harbour bad thoughts, well, that’s where ulcers come from. As the Beatles told us, “Let It Be.” 9. Recognize the ebb-and-flow. Relationships aren’t flat-lined; that’s death, actually. Life has ups and downs, peaks and valleys. We all go through periods where the mere thought of life without our partners can bring tears to our eyes and then a week later we can’t stand the sound of their breathing next to us. We’ve all been there. The trick is knowing that you won’t stay in either place forever. Truth is, in a marriage, you spend most of your time in an emotional middle ground. It’s not songbirds chirping, nor is it considering which poison in his pasta will cause the most painful demise. This middle ground isn’t the couple who sit in the restaurant across from one another without conversing. Those people have actually flat-lined and just don’t know it yet. No, the middle ground is when months meld into years and you know what the reaction will be before you say something. It’s when the book you finished last night just migrates automatically to the nightstand on his side and he tells you about the recorded “Modern Family” episode you slept through. It’s the every day ebb and flow without the waves. 10. Be kind. We tend to take advantage of those we love the most — probably because we know they love us and we can get away with it. It’s the old kick-the-cat syndrome. You have a bad day at the office and come home and take it out on your mate. A much healthier pattern is to start out each day by asking yourself, “What can I do today to make my partner happy?” And mean it. Doesn’t it make more sense to put your best face on for someone you love? Look for ways to say “yes.” This rule applies to parenting as well, but in a happy marriage, people are busy trying to please each other. That sometimes means sitting through endlessly long ball games, putting on a tie, watching a horror movie with your eyes closed, and traveling around old Civil War battleground sites when you really wanted to be vacationing on a beach in Hawaii. It’s doing things for your partner. 11. Maintain intimacy and passion, both inside and outside the bedroom. Intimacy isn’t just sex and passion isn’t just doing it on the kitchen counter. Bedroom habits age along with the marriage. There may be no stronger aphrodisiac than a moonlight walk on the beach that ends in a kiss. There may be no greater display of passion than the zeal of a partner in a hospital room trying to get the nurse’s attention for an ailing wife. Don’t let others define what is a “normal” or “healthy” amount of sex for your marriage. Know that things change, but that doesn’t make them less exciting or fun. And intimacy comes in many shapes, including conversation and cuddling. BY Ann Brenoff
  6. I ALMOST LOST MY MARRIAGE OVER APRIL FOOL PRANK – WOMAN A 23-year-old housewife, Eliza Guta, almost had her marriage shattered after she played a prank on her husband on April 1st, popularly called April Fool Day.’ The woman who tried to give her husband what she thought would be a surprise, told him their only son, Tadiwanashe Mazo, was not his biological child. The Zimbabwean mother narrated the hassles she went through over what she now agrees was a ‘silly’ joke. She said: “I woke up in the morning without that lie in mind; but when I saw some jokes on April fool via WhatsApp, I decided to tell a lie to my husband without giving a thought to it. “While we were having breakfast, I told him that I wanted to confess something which I have been hiding for the past four years since we have been married. “He then gave me the chance to speak and I told him, ‘Tadi is not your son but is my ex-lover’s.’ “When I told him, he went out without saying anything. I thought he was going to come back soon. “He spent the whole day away and he didn’t pick up my calls and that’s when I realised that he was affected by the story.” Her husband, Lenox Mazo, didn’t return home, but went to his parents’ place to break the news. His parents called his wife so they could discuss the issue. “When I got a call from my mother-in-law, that was when I realised how big the issue was, but I wasn’t scared because I thought of the DNA as my defence,” said Eliza. Lenox’s parents insisted that the couple should divorce and that their daughter-in-law must repay all the money that Lenox had spent on taking care of Tadiwa. However, one of Lenox’s sisters, Virginia Mazo, was aware of the entire matter, and she stepped in to save her sister-in-law.. “I was aware of this April Fool. Eliza informed me via WhatsApp after she noticed Lenox’s reaction; so, I was just quiet, waiting for a time like this, and these chats proved Eliza’s innocence,” said Virginia. The husband however insisted that he was going to have a DNA carried out to be fully sure that the son is his biological son.
  7. A 48-year-old wife, Abosede Balogun, on Thursday, pleaded with a Lagos Customary Court to dissolve her 25-year marriage, calling her husband a “ritualist.” “My husband performs rituals even at night; he once brought a ram to the house to slaughter at midnight. I don’t feel safe living with him,” Abosede told an Orile Agege Customary Court. Abosede, a trader who resides at 29, Old Ipaja Road, Agege, a suburb of Lagos, was responding to a divorce suit filed by her husband, Idris Balogun. She said her husband’s behaviour changed shortly after they married and since then, he had been looking for ways to fight her at the slightest provocation. “I once caught my husband at midnight covering one of our children, who is physically challenged, with a white cloth. “I threw the cloth away and burnt it and he fought me because of this. “There was a day that my husband and his brother brought a ram to the house, they waited until midnight before they slaughtered it, I was watching through the window. “They hung the ram in our compound for days,” she said, urging the court to dissolve the marriage. Balogun, 53, a father of three who got married to Abosede in 1993, told the court that his wife had been flouting his instructions and that she also got into a bad company. “My wife doesn’t respect me, she once travelled to Dubai with her friends without my knowledge. “I feel threatened by her moves these days. I am not secure seeing her with different types of bad women who do not have homes,” he said. Balogun urged the court to dissolve his “loveless marriage” and grant him access to their children aged 17 and 22 respectively. The court’s President, Mr. P. A. Williams, observed that efforts to reunite the couple had failed. “The court cannot force two unwilling parties to live together, ” he said. The case has been adjourned until May 3 for judgement.

  10. I ASKED MY FIANCEE’S FRIEND TO MARRY ME AFTER MY FIANCEE REFUSED MY MARRIAGE PROPOSAL FEW MONTHS BACK, THE SOCIAL MEDIA WAS FILLED WITH THE NEWS OF COUPLES REJECTING EACH OTHER's MARRIAGE PROPOSALS IN PUBLIC PLACES. Another Nigeria man has revealed his ordeal via social media but this time he decided to change his proposal and it wasn’t taken in good faith by his fiancee. Read what he shared:
  11. Proposals are beautiful, absolutely. There’s almost nothing as romantic as a man going down on one knee, presenting you a ring, looking you in the eye and asking you to be his wife. Sometimes there are flowers and music and people watching with admiration and all those orishi rishi. The moment can be so beautiful you’d forget to do the right thing and then make decisions that’d change your future in ways you never bargained for. Before you agree to be a man’s wife and do the forever journey with him, here are important things you need to know. 1. You deserve nothing less than the best Don’t ever believe you should manage a man that isn’t entirely what you want. Don’t ever agree that men are scarce and marriage defines a woman. Don’t ever believe you deserve anything less than the best. You may think for instance, that you can’t have a man who will be faithful and caring and responsible at the same time and as such decide to settle with one who is faithful and caring but not responsible. I don’t advice this. In looking for the best which you deserve, however, know that you best make yourself fit for it. You want the best, the question is, ‘Will the best want you?’. You can’t be loving for a graduate and have just birth certificate. You can not want a man who is faithful and be a serial cheat. Yes, you deserve the best but make yourself fit for the best which you deserve. 2. You can say ‘No’ Marriage is beautiful but only so when it’s with the right person. No matter how long you both have been together, what you have shared, what he has done for you and even what people think, you can say ‘no’ to his proposal if you want or if you have doubts. That he asked you doesn’t be you should say ‘yes’. That your family and friends think he’s right doesn’t mean you should say ‘yes’. You should only say yes because you want to spend the rest of your life with him and nothing less. If that’s not how you feel or you aren’t ready yet, politely reject his proposal. Your happiness is everything, do not take it for granted. 3. There is no guarantee he will change Sis, it’s not true that a man can not change. We can do anything we put our minds to. He can stop smoking. He can stop Cheat!ng. He can stop spending carelessly. He can stop checking other women out when you are there. He can stop being disrespectful. He can change to whatever but I tell you baby girl, there is no guarantee. If it is something you can’t deal with, don’t agree to marry him hoping he will change. There are changes he will and there are chances he won’t. Marriage is not a gamble. If there is something about him you can not deal with, please think again. 4. Be ready to give what you expect It takes two to be married, never forget. While you think of all you want in a marriage, know that there are things he wants too. Think of his needs and be ready to give what you expect. Be ready to show care too, be ready to spend time with the family too, be ready to communicate too, be ready to show love and affection too, be ready to do everything you expect in a relationship. Marriage is not 70:30 or 60:40 or 10:90 or anything unequal. Marriage is 50:50. It’s highly important too to understand that you too should be involved in the finances. You too should spend. It’s ridiculous to hear people say that the man’s money is for the family and the woman’s money is for her. To think that these are the same people that want equality. Don’t get me wrong, we are not talking equality or feminism or any of that now. We are talking what is right and what will make your marriage as beautiful as it should be. In marriage give everything you expect to be given. 5. Marriage isn’t always forever In as much as we do not hope for this, it’s important to have it in mind. Unlike what we were told as kids and still are told, marriage can be ended when need be. Some women are told by their parents, ‘Once you leave my house, never return. If you have problems with your husband, sort it out with him. Never ever leave him. Do not bring shame to us.’ Sadly, this has ruined a lot of lives. If things aren’t working and you both have tried to resolve it but it isn’t working, for your health – mentally especially- you should annul the union. Instead of being unhappy, work out. You have the option of divorce, know this.
  12. A young couple has been found by local residents in Bangladesh dangling on a tree after hanging themselves in a shocking suicide. Multiple online reports online reveal that their parents were not in support of their marriage which makes the two lovebirds to commit suicide because they don’t want to be separated. Here’s what Patricia who shared the shocking photos wrote; “Wonders shall never End! “SUICIDE for LOVE ” This happened simply because their PARENTS were trying to separate the “TWO LOVER’S BIRDS” from getting married by separating them but they have chosen to END it this way.

Their families were trying to move them away from each other..then they commuted suicide…#today in Bangladesh. I have two questions to ask and I need answers from people. Now my first question is, Is this the love Christ is talking about? Second question: where will these two lovers spend their eternity?” See more photos below;

  14. Nollywood actress and producer Foluke Daramola, who recently turned 40, has shared some interesting details about her life as a celebrity.

  15. Up and coming Actress and Scriptwriter Uche Uba started her acting odyssey in 2010 and has since then gone further to produce her first movie. The beautiful Anambra indigene in this interview shares her story. Who is Uche Uba? I'm an actress and a scriptwriter. I'm from Anambra State, I'm 25 years old. I'm a graduate of Mass Communications from Federal Polytechnic, Anambra. I'm also a producer; I recently produced my first movie 'My Sister's Asset' Why did you decide to go into production? As an actress, I know what is happening in the industry, I know for a fact that producers make more money than actors, so I decided to give it a trial. So far, being a producer has been good; it turned out to be what I hoped for. My first production was successful, although it wasn't easy at all. What are some of the challenges you faced producing the film? Finance was a big challenge, although I wrote the story myself and didn't have to pay a scriptwriter. I had to pay actors, and getting funds wasn't easy. Also, editing and post-production were quite challenging but above all, the film came out well. Although it is not in the market yet, it is on YouTube. What is the review on YouTube like so far? People actually love the movie because it is more of a comedy film. The views are amazing and the comments I get are very encouraging. People are of the opinion that actresses are promiscuous, how true is this? I can't talk for everybody but not all actresses are promiscuous. People see us in this light because of our job, they tend to forget that what we do is make-believe and as professionals, we must do it well. Why do actresses live beyond their means? I don't think it's just actresses; it happens everywhere, every one that pretends will definitely live above their income. Do you think social media influence should be a measure of wealth? First of all, whatever you see on social media is a scam. For example, before I go on set a costumier will dress me up, a makeup artist will make me up and I will also have my pictures taken, I will eventually post the picture on social media, does that mean I'm the owner of the clothes and all? If you judge by what you see on social media, you will end up being disappointed, because people posts what they want you to see. I like to meet people before passing judgment. How do you deal with competition in the industry? I don't believe in competition because the industry is big enough for everyone to excel. Every day I try to learn new things and I also learn from other actors, I see it as doing well on my job and not a competition. Once you are good at what you do, people will call you for jobs and you won't have a problem. Who do you admire in the industry? I love Mercy Johnson Okojie so much, she is good luck, and I don't regret admiring her. Tell us about your relationship? I'm not married yet but I'm in a relationship. Some schools of thought are of the opinion that a woman is incomplete without marriage, what's your take on this? I'm an Igbo girl and with the way I was brought up, I agree that a woman is incomplete without marriage. Regardless of how much a woman makes or her level of success, she is incomplete without a husband, but that does not mean a woman has to rush into marriage because of this. How and when did your journey into acting begin? That will be in 2010, I was doing a part-time course in Awka at the time. I attended an audition and was given a minor role of a bartender. I was so excited about the experience because it was a dream come true. I kept on going for auditions and eventually I got a role for my second movie but when it was time to shoot I was placed on a condition to sleep with the director before I would be given my script. I was disappointed at this and I cried so hard, the executive producer of the movie saw me crying and I told him about what had happened, eventually, I was given my script and instead of appearing in about six scenes only, I appeared in over fourteen scenes and here I am today.
