It is a taboo for a man to remain unmarried in Nigeria, which is why many successful men are swarmed by eager women who would do anything in order to bear Mrs. X. The truth of the matter is that Nigerian men prefer certain types of women for marriage and they prefer certain types of women just for sex and nothing more.
Women who are at the top of the marriageable list are;
Light Skinned Women
There is a popular Yoruba song that goes “omo pupa o, omo pupa la wa n fe; omo pupa o ju wo mo feran re o” it literally means “light skinned girl you are the one we want to marry, light skinned girl, please I love you.”
Most men will give their right arm to date and marry a light skinned girl. In the olden days (and now) light skinned girls attracted more suitors and their bride price were quite exorbitant. Light skinned women are always the centre of attraction and most men who date them believe that marrying (a much coveted) light skinned girl will do wonders for their egos.
Most dark skinned women have taken to using skin bleaching crèmes in order to compete with their fairer counterparts.
Women With Ample Flesh
Most Nigerian men will not marry a skinny woman but they would rather sleep with her instead. Many men from the western and eastern part of Nigeria believe that a woman is more beautiful if she has ample flesh, some men have been known to date only women who have big butts! Most Yoruba men are of the opinion that sleeping with a skinny woman is like sleeping with a man, but sleeping with a woman that has some ample flesh will give them something soft to hold on to.
An intolerant woman will sure have a hard time finding a man to settle down with. No Nigerian man wants a woman who will grill him at the slightest opportunity. If a Nigerian man suspects you to be intolerant of his (sometimes) bad behaviour, he will drop you like a hot potato.
The trick most women employ is to become his legal wife first, and after the wedding (now they have a firm foot hold) they’ll draw up a list of do’s and don’ts for their husbands to abide by.
Most men in Nigeria will never consider marrying a woman who is not gainfully employed or runs a business of her own. Gainfully employed women are at the very top of a searching bachelor’s list. The present economic situation in the country is not making things any easier for men, who are mostly the bread winners of many Nigerian families. Most men want a wife who can help support the family (financially). Most women and a few men still believe that it is the man’s responsibility to provide for his family and allowing a woman to do part of his job is nothing but an insult to his manhood.

Summer is in full swing with the hottest weeks still to come. But there’s only so much a girl can take off to keep cool. It’s even harder for plus-size girls. How much skin is too much? What do you do if you hate your… [insert body part here]?
I’m a big believer in not letting your insecurities hold you back. In the past, I would suffer all summer in long jeans because I felt self-conscious in shorts. However, I live where it can hit 115+ degrees, and one day, I decided to stop hiding in pants all summer just to keep my legs from seeing the light of day. All of that time I was being self-conscious for nothing. Keep cool this summer and check out these great shorts styles.
Your school dress code didn’t steer you wrong. Place your arms at your sides. Where your fingertips hit on your thigh, your shorts probably shouldn’t be much shorter. On that note, the more leg you show, the longer your legs look. I personally prefer Bermuda shorts, which are on the longer side. Bermuda shorts walk a thin line of being too long and making you appear shorter. Don’t let them hit below the bottom of your kneecap.

If you are a pear shape with thicker thighs, shorts that are too fitted will accentuate your thighs. Select a pair that fits the widest part of your thigh and goes straight down from there. If you have the slim legs that come with an apple shape, a wider leg can balance a larger upper half, and create curves. The detail of a cuff can also help create curves!

It is especially important when you’re plus sized to put importance on the fabric and construction of your clothes — even shorts. A thicker, sturdier fabric will camouflage lumps and bumps and will retain the garment’s shape throughout the day. Flimsy cuts and fabrics will wrinkle and look sloppy after wearing them for several hours. A thicker fabric will also allow you to wear light colored shorts without appearing see-through.
Welt Pocket Shorts, jcp (JCPenney, $30)
Pockets can either be your best friend or worst enemy depending on placement. A cargo pocket-inspired short will add width — great for those of you who are an apple shape who want to create curves and add width to your lower half, not so much for those of us with a pear-shaped body.

If you aren’t ready to jump into this style, slowly wade in by trying capris, available in several lengths. Still feeling insecure? Remember, you are your harshest critic.
Some things never change.
It’s been a few days since Kris and Bruce announced that they had officially separated and moved into separate homes, but things seem to be business as usual for the Jenners.
Kardashian momager Kris shared a photo of herself kickin’ it with her stepsons and ex – uh, sort-of-ex – Bruce. The photo, which was a blatant jab at TMZ, served as a virtual bitch-slap for anyone who said Kris had fallen out with Bruce’s two sons Brody and Brandon Jenner.
Brody also shared a photo of the family love on his Instagram with this epic caption:
“@KrisJenner and I are dating now and @sprandoni and Bruiser seem pretty chill about it hahah”
That wasn’t Kris’ only shining moment on Instagram yesterday. Khloe Kardashianshared a moment with her mogul mama while the duo kicked it at the Hollywood Walk Of Fame.
No, Kim Kardashian wasn’t getting her star – sorry, guys.
Kris and Khloe showed out to watch long-time family friend and legend Babyface be honored with a star. Khloe shared photos of her and her mom as well as her other friends – namelyDiddy – showing their support.
Though Kris is newly single herself, it appears she’d rather play matchmaker than be re-matched. Jenner is reportedly hoping Khloe will consider kicking Lamar Odom to the curb for a younger man. Rumor has it, Kris wants to pair the 29-year-old with none other than DrizzyDrake!
“She thinks he’d be perfect for Khloe,” a source told InTouch. “Kris is sick of her daughters ending up with jerks.”
That’s an – uh, interesting match.
Regardless, Khloe seems to still be holding on to a string of hope. She was spotted out to dinner with sister Kim Kardashian and Jonathan Cheban yesterday – still sporting her wedding ring.
A different Spaghetti
Hello, this is the first time I’ll be writing and giving out the recipe for any meal I’ve cooked. So, here goes.
I won’t write the specific amount of things to use so as not to confuse anyone. But I cook for five people so if you want me to tell you, drop a comment and I will reply asap.
2) grounded pepper and tomatoes
3) kpomo (pomo)
4) Stock fish (okporoko)
5) Sardine(s) (or meat, fish, chicken, etc)
9) Groundnut oil
13) Green pepper
14) spring onions
Put water in a sizable pot and cover to boil.
Add salt after sometime.
Add a little bit of vegetable oil into the water. This is to prevent the spaghetti from being clumpy.
Break the number of spaghetti packs you want to use and add them to the boiling water.
Debone and piece the stock fish, wash and set aside.
Scrape the Kpomo, dice it in tiny bits, wash with salt and set aside.
Bring a smaller pot, add the debonned stock fish and the kpomo.
Add salt, maggi, curry, garlic, chopped onions, add water to be just a little above the stock fish and kpomo. Then put on the fire to cook. You should know when this is done by tasting a bit of the kpomo and stock fish to check if they’re soft). There should be a little sauced water left in the pot.
Pour the contents into a bowl. Don’t wash the pot. Add your grounded tomatoes and pepper into the pot and put on the fire to boil. Keep turning until the tomatoe is a thick paste, then remove from the fire and pour contents in a bowl. By this time, your boiling spaghetti should be done and out of the fire. Pour in a sieve and set aside.
Take the pot you just removed the spaghetti from, dry and out it back on the fire.
When the pot is heated, add your vegetable oil and allow to heat some more.
Then add your onions and allow to fry.
Add the boiled mixture of pepper and tomatoes and allow to fry some more.
Add the cooked kpomo, stock fish and the sauced water. Allow to boil for a bit.
Add your ingredients (maggi, salt, curry, etc (whatever floats your boat) )
Then add your vegetables (chopped carrot, peas, green pepper, spring onions). Allow to boil for some minutes.
Add the per boiled spaghetti and stir. Cover the pot and allow the spaghetti to boil.
Keep checking and string to make sure it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
When the water is almost dried up, put your sardines on top so it doesn’t break (but if you want to break it, by all means, go right ahead and scatter it inside the spaghetti) .
When there’s almost no water left, remove the pot from the fire.
The food is ready to be dished and eaten.
I hope this has been helpful.
I came up with this at the spur of the moment when I couldn’t think of anything else to cook for dinner.
Your comments, criticisms and corrections are very welcomed.
If you have recipes you came up with on your own, please, do share and I’ll put it up.
