I’ve come to realize that we ladies do a lot just to keep a man and get married . How long will we continue to cover up the flaws we notice while dating all because we want to get married at all cost? And in the end, we still end up being hurt.
Celebrities display the ‘perfect life ‘ on social media and make young ladies waste time waiting for a ready made man.
Why post pictures of things your man never bought for you? Who were you trying to impress? The signs will always be there while courting. If you compromise on a lot of things while dating, you will face the same things when you’re married. Trust your instincts while dating.
An irresponsible boyfriend won’t be a responsible husband unless he’s willing to be responsible. A man who will never go all out for you while dating would not go all out for you when you’re married unless he is willing to.
Put love aside, face the reality in your relationship and address the issues in your relationship. Addressing the issues will save you a lot of headache to an extent in your marriage. Never live your life based on what you see on social media. A lot of people fake it here.. it’s just perception and what they want you to see and believe which isn’t exactly as it is.
If you’ve been in a 1 year relationship and your boyfriend has never spent a dime on you, ask him for money even when you know you have money to sort out yourself. If you don’t ask, how will you know if you’re dating a stingy man?
If you’re lucky enough to find a guy who gives you from the little he has, who makes you a priority on his list , hold on to him. You don’t come across such guys these days. A lot of ladies fall for the wrong guys based on their fake lifestyle on social media.
There are a lot of things you can achieve while you’re still single. Marriage is not the ultimate. Stop counting the number of your friends that are married, a lot of them wish they were still single. Live your own life, do you and do what makes you happy.
If you live your life based on what you see on social media, you will only kill yourself.
Late Bimbo Odukoya once said
‘Love is blind but marriage is the eye opener’.
Why wait to be married when you can open your eyes while dating?
BE WISE! Not all that glitters on social media is gold in real life.
Ooni Of Ife Criticizes BBNaija, Suggests Replacement
The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, has suggested a replacement for the Big Brother Naija reality show.
While playing host to members of the National Youth Council of Nigeria in his palace at Ile Ife, Osun, the monarch criticized the #BBNaija show.
He said the reality show was “misrepresenting the goodness and integrity of the Nigerian youths”.
As a replacement, he suggested a reality show that would project the country’s values, cultures, and traditions.
He suggested that the new show could be tagged “The Big Nigeria Reality Show”.
“The proposed show will be structured in a way that young professionals, talented individuals, and others across several fields of endeavour will be showcased and helped to reach their peak.
“This would help the participants and also help viewers to have access to people that can be seen as role models,” Ooni added.
The royal father, who stressed the need for participation of more youths in leadership, lamented that the youths have misplaced their priorities and must redress it as a matter of urgent public importance.
“Nigerian youths are fond of accusing and abusing our leaders, stop abusing them contribute your own quota. Let’s wear our thinking caps and begin to act like the real future leaders that we are.
“In the last general election, the total number of vote cast was around 27 million while over 170 million people voted during the 2019 Big Brother Naija reality show.
“This is a practical reality of who Nigerian youths are and where our priorities lie as Nigerians.
“The funny side in all of these is that we still go to bed, have a good sleep, and wake up with the hope to meet a Nigeria we didn’t create.
“Unfortunately, every time I talk about this kind of attitude, everyone just laughs and moves on. What kind of nation are we building?
“When people say this country, or what kind of country is this, they are indirectly saying these people – it is the people that make a country; so what kind of Nigerian youths are we?” Ooni asked.
Earlier in his address, the Minister of Youth and Sports Development, Mr. Sunday Dare, who was represented by Dr Mariam Abdullahi, a director in the ministry, explained that the youths have major roles to play in the country’s development.
“As a government, we will keep ensuring that we equip our youths towards prosperity,” the minister added.
Representing Governor Gboyega Oyetola of Osun at the event, the state’s Commissioner for Youths and Sports, Mr Yemi Lawal, explained that the youths have a lot to learn from elders towards reaching their goals.
“As much as we youths are important, let us be humble enough to learn from our elders because they were once like us. Humility, persistence, and patience is the key and we must be upright in our dealings,” he said.
The President of the National Youth Council of Nigeria, Mr. Sara-Igbe Sukubo, thanked the Ooni for what he described as an unthinkable warm reception for the youths.
“We have heard your kind words of wisdom and I want to assure you on behalf of the teeming Nigerian youths that we will put them into action.
“Fellow Nigerian youths, as we reflect on youth engagement for global action today, let us realize that a new era of opportunities and responsibilities is now upon us.
“Today’s youths are now being called upon to rise as practical stakeholders in governance and development. Let us rise to this challenge,” Sukubo said.
The youths at the occasion announced Ooni Ogunwusi as the ”Royal Father of Nigerian Youths”, in recognition and appreciation of his immeasurable commitment towards youth development in the country.

Adeyinka, who is dubbed the first Nigerian to publish comedy magazine, had worked as a corporate affairs manager in an engineering firm but broke out with his promo for the ‘Star Game Show’.
He has also anchored Television programmes for AIT, Galaxy TV, MBI, and Africa Magic on DSTV.
The comedian’s move comes after Innocent Idiabia, a singer better known as Tuface, had unveiled the Innobia Cooperatives Organisation (Innobia Allied Ltd), his agro-allied business project.
Gloria Young, an actress, had earlier warned that entertainers in Nigeria could go hungry if they don’t find alternative ways to make ends meet as the country fights the economic impact of COVID-19.
“The pandemic has affected all forms of the economy, including the entertainment sector which is one of the greatest employers of labour that had been greatly affected,” she had said.
“Though all productions of films and radio had been put on hold, however, we still hold internet meetings to plan the way forward for sustenance.
“When the pandemic is over, our lives won’t be the same again. We hope to use the internet more in subsequent productions, following the current experiences we’re passing through.”
