I Am Not Ready For Marriage Now—Halima Abubakar

Image
Marriage in Africa, especially in Nigeria, is one institution that is regarded as something one must go into and it is a sign of responsibility. It is common for parents to start getting worried when their children of marriageable age are still single.

Parents however, put little pressure on men until they reach the age of 40, but that is not the case with women, who are put under intense pressure if they are still single at 30. At that stage, their mothers would go about seeking spiritual help for their daughters so that she could settle down in time.

Despite this, it is surprising that most Nigerian female celebrities don’t get married in time. In some instances, they cross age 30 before settling down with men they could call their own. The reason is not far-fetched; most men are scared of approaching these women because of their celebrity status. While some men get intimidated by their status, others cannot just stand the numerous negative stories, especially sex scand…

Keshi: Eagles must focus

Image
Nigeria coach Stephen Keshi says his wards will have to come down from the high of their stirring victory over Morocco and knuckle down if they are to beat Ghana. The two West African giants clash on Wednesday in the semi-final of the African Nations Championship, and Keshi says his players have to get their hands dirty.
"The victory over Morocco is gone, now it's like we are starting again from scratch and the players have to focus on Ghana," he said.
"The Ghanaians are a very good team. They may not have scored as many goals before this stage, but they will be dangerous, and we cannot allow what happened against Morocco to happen again."
The Nigeria coach remains confident that despite a slew of injuries, he had enough in his amours to triumph.
"We have a few injuries, but that is why we have 23 players here and I trust all of them to come in and do their job," he adds.

Shocking revelations about Nollywood actress & producer, Rukky Sanda

Image
Despite the glaring toughness of wading through the competitive waters of the Nigerian movie industry, Rukky Sanda has clearly earned her spot among the army of Nigerian celebrities who have performed remarkably well in their chosen fields of expertise, and in this case, acting takes centre stage

Given her blooming personality and penchant for controversies, so much has been said about this fair-complexioned actress but in this piece, we will carefully sieve out the rumours from the facts and touch on several aspects of her life including her career, her background, preferences and other interesting issues.

• The name Rukky was derived from her real name Rukayat

You seem to participate more in soap operas than in regular movie. Why is that?

I wouldn’t say I participate more in sitcom than movie. I do more movie than soap operas. There is no particular reason why but I just find out that I appear more in flicks. I don’t think I have participated in more than five soap operas. Movie, to me are more profitable but fame-wise, soap operas are better than movie. The pay is usually low in soap operas except in those that have international status and are shown only on pay TV.

As an actress, are you impressed with the present state of Nollywood?

I am not impressed because we are supposed to be moving forward but it seems everything is getting worse by the day. However, all hope is not lost because there is nothing that does not have its ups and downs. I am not …

The Popular and Happily married actress, Stephanie Linus shared some vital tips with single ladies on her blog a while ago. Enjoy….

Hi ladies :

Many times as women, we tend to feel incomplete without a man by our side and would go to great lengths to ensure we don’t remain “single”. I know that feeling.

But it’s also important we do not express our vulnerability or sound too desperate that we forget to build ourselves up as individuals. Sometimes, we give up our lives, our careers, our dreams for the desires of a man and leave our own self worth and fulfillment aside.

I am not trying to undermine the importance of men in our lives. Our husbands, our partners, our relationships are very important and sacrifices can, and should be mad…

"On the 15th of January 2014, I got married to my lover and Best Friend. It was such an intimate event, I haven't stopped apologising to family and friends who feel slighted that they could not attend. I really did not wish to keep it a secret, If anything we would have loved to have all our loved ones there with us but this was our registry and so much had happened between Maje and I in the last 3 months. Plus, it was such a huge surprise, I had no clue. I hate surprises but I must say, this one knocked me out of my elements because I usually suspect something is happening. Hehehehe! I am not fully over it yet.

Relationships are tough, people go through the ups and downs and we as a couple have had our share of that. Having a private moment was not to offend anyone, it was God's appointed time and No, I …
