          BRIDE PRICE IN AFRICA:THE OLD NORM AND THE DEMAND FOR A NEW APPROACH 

Image
The agitation for gender equality has been around for quite a while now ,which is an emancipation from that stifling box women have been placed in; hence, making them enjoy the same benefits and opportunities the opposite sex enjoys without any form of restrictions. This is a welcomed development, which has had a tremendous effect over the past years. According to Wikipaedia, the Feminism movement/history(it is a range of political movements, ideologies, and social movements that share a commom goal:to define, establish, and achieve political, economic, person, and social equality of the sexes)started in the 19th/20th century.It is divided into three waves, each with slightly different aims based on prior progress.

HOW TO BREAK LOOSE FROM THE BONDAGE OF SPORT BETTING

Image
The issue of betting amongst the youths has proliferated to the extent that the outcome is something very disastrous.  Our youths these days, most especially the guys;have resorted into making betting their favourite pastime, by looking for an easy way out to make fast money. As a result of this, they've enriched the betting companies we have around in a quest to make money from them. There are so many betting companies in Nigeria like:bet9ja,Merry bet, Lions bet,Naijabet,Nairabet,Surebet etc. Whose primary aim is to entice the gullible youths and convince them that the only way for them to be successful is to keep betting with the little money they have in order to make it big. The usual word of advice we grew up with from our parents those days which was 'Hardwork Pays' has been thrown into the thin air all in a bid to make that 'fast money'.

Most times; not what a man shows his woman wholeheartedly in some cases).

BENEATH HER BEAUTY

Image
Can you see her? with her unsteady gaits,                                                                        
It shows how tired she is.
But home feels like the hornet's nest.
No, she doesn't wait for her man for chop money,
She provides, even as the "supposed neck"
And yet you call her the weaker one?
Can you see her?
She is a strong black woman
She has defied all gravity as the neck,
With the sun as her harbour daily.
In her eyes opens the flood of love, warmth and determination.
Where does she get all that strength from?
She is fragile, to be protected
But here she stands; unapologetic for her femaleness.
