Female Celebrities Prefer 2nd Hand Husbands- Etcetera

Some days ago I was at a friend's place and was asked by his sisters if I was traveling abroad for the wedding of a colleague that is still being talked about on blogs and on all social networking sites in nigeria and I said no I wasn't. But what struck me as odd was when one of them asked me "is she getting married to a BRAND NEW husband or a 2ND HAND husband"?

I stared at her in shock and confusion because up until that moment, I had never heard of a phrase as "brand new or 2nd hand husband. It became a heated debate amongst people in the house that day. 'WOW', I never thought a phrase like 2nd hand can be attributed to a human being. I know it is only applicable to objects. At first i was angry. How could they have said such.

Elvina Ibru Speaks On Weight Loss, Former Marriage & Son

One of the daughters of billionaire businessman, Olorongun Michael Ibru in a new interview with The Nation has expressed how she lost tremendous weight and the true meaning of her son's name, Elisha and how she has been coping with his father, ever since they separated. Quite interesting.

How is your son?

He is good; he is the best thing that as ever happened to me. His name is Elisha and there are so many things attached to that name. The literary meaning of his name Elisha in Hebrew means ‘my God my salvation.’ So he’ll grow up never to forget that without God he is nothing. Then there is the story in the Bible about the great prophet Elijah who God was going to take into heaven. God told him that his time would soon come. He gave him a message for Elisha that asked Elisha what he wanted and Elisha said that he wanted double anointing. So if Elijah was a great prophet and Elisha now had double, you can imagine how great Elisha turned out! So I think for my son, the sky is the limit. Continue after the cut.
