When I have a daughter, I will advise her to get married by age 26.

“Motherhood is a very lovely experience but it is not an easy task. I remember those days before I had kids, I could go out around 1am. Once in a while, I would go to a club, just to enjoy myself but now, I have to think of the children before taking any action,” she said.

50 Ladies Sent Me A DM Shortly After My Divorce Prank- Seyi Law

Comedian Seyi LAw has explained to Saturday Beats that he got about 50 ladies hitting his DM shortly after his divorce prank went viral. Seyi Law had posted a message on instagram shortly before his London show, saying he is no longer with his wife and their daughter, Tiwa is fine.

Here's how he explains the whole prank...

“I was going to the UK to visit my wife and promote my show as well. While I was on the plane, I just had that weird idea. I was curious about what people’s reaction would be if they heard that Seyi Law was no longer married. I knew that if I was going to test it, I had to be sarcastic and witty about it. That was why I put some words in a way that people would not pay attention to (what I was doing). Apparently, they didn’t pay attention to the details; I tried to play with words in that post. Interestingly, the incident showed me that people love and appreciate my family; I also learnt that bad news travels faster (than good news).
