Should Women Forget Their Jobs After Marriage Just To Raise Their Kids Alone?

I heard something on air today. A man on a talk show said the westerners have encouraged African women to get a job at the expense of their family, forgetting we have a culture in Africa, where women are meant to stay at home and bring up their children to be responsible kids in the society. He said and I quote 'when the children are old enough to take care of themselves, you can now go and pursue your career as a woman'.

Sadly a lot of women have emulated the western culture, pursuing their careers and running their homes at the same time, which will leave a lot of things unattended too. You cannot do two things together, you cannot eat your cake and still have it, he said. Women are meant to stay at home and raise their kids and be responsible wives he concluded.

Do you agree with him? Do you think women should face their marriage squarely after getting married to raise their children alone?

No Accident Can Stop My Love For Power Bikes- YAW

Even after having an accident on Third Mainland Bridge that left a scar on his hand, famous OAP, YAW has said he is willing to get another bike, and the accident will not in any way stop him from enjoying his bike. He says before Yeni Kuti’s ex-husband died, he showed him his power bike and he told him, he will be getting a similar one. He spoke to a Punch reporter, where he expressed his love for bikes. Enjoy!

I overheard you telling your friend that you would still get another power bike after you had an accident with the last one you had. Why this craze for power bikes?

I love them. I have a scar on my hand which I got when I was involved in an accident with my power bike on the Third Mainland Bridge. I was shocked when I heard of the death of Yeni Kuti’s ex-husband. I learnt he had an accident with his power bike.  He showed me the bike before his death, I have forgotten the brand but it runs very fast. When he showed me, I told him that I would soon buy the same type of bike; it was a new bike. It happens but one has to be very careful when riding a power bike. I prefer cruisers to speed bikes. Speed bikes are too fast and Nigerian roads don’t encourage the speed they are built for and also, people do not respect bikers on the road. I just prefer cruiser bikes.

El-Rufai Is A Small Fry- Oritsejafor Claims

CAN President, Pastor Oritsejafor has dropped a bombshell against former minister, El-Rufai who said Pastor Oritsejafor’s controversial jet was from the President and not his church followers like he wants Nigerians to believe. Speaking with a Punch reporter, Oritsejafor said he is glad he didn’t reply but glad some Nigerians did. Insisting El-Rufai is a small fry.

Yemi Alade Still Keeps Mum On Relationship With Alex Ekubo

Music act, Yemi Alade has kept mum on her relationship with Alex Ekubo. Though people are saying the two are in a relationship, neither of them has confirmed it. In a recent interview BON had with Alex Ekubo, he said he had no comment when he was asked if he was truly in a relationship with the singer. Yemi also told a soft sell newspaper that she had no comment about their relationship and the reason she choose Alex to play ‘Johnny’ in the video of her widely accepted song.

Why the choice of Alex Ekubo as Johnny?

The only John I know is John the Baptist and I could not have called him to be in the video.  My team and I just felt Alex Ekubo was the perfect person for the video because of his character.  He is a very funny guy both off and on set.

There was an alleged romance tale between you and Alex Ekubo, is it true?

All I can say is, no comment.

Reader's Mail: My Boyfriend Says I Do Not Know Who I’m Dealing With, After A Pastor Looked At Him Devilishly

Hi Ladun,

I am a 21year old Economics Student in a very good uni in US. I have been dating someone for a couple of months. Yesterday,  a visiting Pastor came to my uni's fellowship. He told me that God spoke to him and do I have a bf? I said yes. Then ,he asked if we were s*xually active, I lied and said no. He told us to abstain from s*x because God will answer a specific thing I have been praying for. I told my bf and he said we should stop having s*x and he won't be sleeping over at mine apartment again. Should I believe the pastor or what? My bf also said the pastor looked at him like he's the devil and when I laughed it off, he said I don't know who I am dealing with. I am confused.
