Her Mother-In-Law Did The Unthinkable!

Guys last week I asked what you would do if you come home one day and your mother in law has given your little baby tribal marks. When I did I honestly never imagined that such a thing could happen. Well it turns out that it actually does and this mail on lailasblog just goes to show...

There is a girl that stayed with us for more than two years. She met her hubby in my area and got married, the guy is actually from Ilorin. The girl is actually from Togo. 
Anyway, after the wedding, she gave birth to a bouncing baby boy, the boy is so cute, I pratically take him out all the time *lovestruck*. 
Two years later she was pregnant again. When she was like 7 months gone, she went to her mother in law's place due to her hubby's job, which required him not being at home
all the time. Anyway, she gave birth to another baby boy... She stayed with her mother inlaw for six months, her hubby visit them once in a while. 
One fateful day, she sent her to help her get something very far away from the house. It took her like 2hrs to come back, lo and behold, she met her children crying. She initially thought the kids were hungry, you need to see her reaction wen she realised her children haven been given tribal mark. This gurl curse the woman die, she was so angry, she virtually left the kids wit her... 
People around her begged her, that in yoruba land, you don't quarrel wit the person that tribal marked your child, if not the mark will enlarge *for real o*. To make the matter worse, it's not the small mark o. It's those long 5marks across the face. VERY WICKED. 
She called her hubby, he came and carried his children, later the mother in law said she didn't tell her because she was scared she will take the children away. how pathetic. 

I cannot believe what I just read. I am so enraged, this actually does happen? Wow!


  1. Lmao, don't even know what I'll do to this kind of Mother-In-Law cos this is not funny at all.

  2. I don't think I'll forgive my mil if she does this to my children.

  3. This is wicked. Why not seek the consent of the parents first? She knew they would disagree and she went on to do so. There's no solution. Those children will grow up that way.

    1. But she would have damaged the relationship she has with their parents.

  4. Lol...I don't even want to imagine it.

  5. MIL is getting her own tribal mark as well. Rubbish.

    1. Lmao but I agree oh she must get her mark too.

      A Bili

    2. GBAM! If she already has vertical ones, i'll add horizontal ones!
      What rubbish?

    3. Lol I was about to ask 'what if she already has' and Ruthy answered i'll add horizontal ones hehe. Nobody dare tries this with me sha, God knows I will not be responsible for my actions

  6. Hmmm, I just can't imagine it. That woman so aint seeing those kids again.

  7. Lol... i will poison the woman... it will be very slow poison so she will feel all the pain and agony.
    Then close to the end i will let her know say na me dey do am.. (just like Julia did in "A Voice in the Wind) Kponkwem!

    Then their papa must take them abroad for corrective surgery seeing as na im mama cut their face.

  8. Just sad and she gave the wicked kind.

  9. There is no surgery to correct the marks o. Look at Seal's face for example. I can't imagine it because it can't happen

    1. Seal's are not tribal marks. It's the effect of Lupus.

      Please what kind of rule says dont get angry at the person who gave the marks?

      Na real wa!

  10. Haaa reading this even upsets me. I can't deal with it but I must get even with her in the most emotionally draining way possible before I consider physical.

  11. Hahahahahahahahahahahahaahaa! This is not even funny at all o! Haaa! I hope she gave her son too tribal marks so his children would not feel too left out! Lol! If not!!!! She must be a very wicked, selfish and self centered woman! Haba mama! She wie hear it o!

  12. This happens but mostly among people who are still very traditional, but these days more few and far between. It almost happened to my husband when he was little as his mother is not yoruba and didnt speak the language. His grandma had been planning to send her somewhere and get it done for him before she came back. Luckily, a kind-hearted neighbour told her in pidgin english what she had overheard and so my MIL refused to release the hubs to her lol!!! I don't think they mean harm, its just their way of holding on to tradition and refusing to see why you guys are too 'civilised'. On a side note, I told the hubs to thank his lucky stars he wasn't marked or else him for no fit come near me o, as a fine babe concerned. Maybe that should open up another discourse. Would the marks put you off giving a guy/girl a chance as a boy/girlfriend? My father-in-law had them and he was actually quite handsome.

    1. Are you saying that people with tribal marks are ugly?

    2. Nope. Notice I said my father in law was very handsome. But judging from how we are as a people, seeing how put off everyone is by tribal marks, especially the Oyo state variety, looking at those who have them as 'local' if we want to be truthful to ourselves. I was simply asking as a person, would tribal marks put you off from choosing that person as your significant other? Interestingly, there have been two new movies in the Yoruba industry that addressed the stigmatization people with tribal marks face. One was titled Alade Owala and I can't remember the other. The protagonist in this one went as far as doing something very drastic just to get a chance with the ladies. What would you do?

    3. Pls Yes!!! It'll influence my choice of a hubby. Seriously I can't deal.

  13. Lols,Nubian Princess beat me to the Q I was gonna ask.
    Judging from this story,did her husband have his own tribal marks? Cos it wld be sheer wickedness if he doesnt...

  14. Thelma, may this kind of thing never happen to me.

    Hell will be. Let lose o, I can't type the kind of things I'm thinking right now.

    It's obscene.

  15. Thelma, may this kind of thing never happen to me.

    Hell will be. Let lose o, I can't type the kind of things I'm thinking right now.

    It's obscene.

  16. Hian!!!..Some body will visit baba God that day o..and we all know who. What nonsense!! I'd rather not imagine this happening to me. I rest my case.

  17. Chai....dia's God oo. God knows I'll neva tolerate ds, so I trust he'll keep me away from MILs like ds lest I ans a murderer.

Turia Pitt Suffered 65% Burns But Loved Conquered All...

Amazing Story Shared by Dr. Ben Carson on Facebook, i thought it is inspiring and i decided to share;

The Australian ex-model Turia Pitt suffered burns to 65 per cent of her body, lost her fingers and thumb on her right hand and spent five months in hospital after she was trapped by a grassfire in a 100 kilometre ultra-marathon in the Kimberley. Her boyfriend decided to quit his job to care for her recovery. 
Days ago, in an interview for CNN they asked him:
"Did you at any moment think about leaving her and hiring someone to take care of her and moving on with your life?"

His reply touched the world:

"I married her soul, her character, and she's the only woman that will continue to fulfill my dreams."

This made me very reflective. I just wonder; if the person you love today encounters an incident or accident that transforms who they are physically, it could be amputation, it could be paralysis, it could be severe burns that scald their flesh beyond recognition, w…


Good morning people! 
Just checking in to sign the register. Lol. It's been a very busy week and it looks like it might be an even busier weekend. I was hoping to get some writing done when I got to the airport yesterday but I even almost missed my flight. It was hopeless trying to do any work on the plane as it was bumpy af, and this toddler behind me wouldn't stop screaming in piercing shrieks like he was being exorcised. 
I got into town pretty late and needed to keep an appointment ASAP. I'm heading out right now and it's going to be a long day, but thought I should drop this first. 
Have a splendid day. Im'ma be back soon.

One More Post...


He was my coursemate, crush, then my boyfriend.... he was super
intelligent, smart, tall, dark and handsome. Believe me he got
swag, but he didn't seem to notice me. (I'm a nerd but a sassy one
if I say so myself).  So oneday I decided to take it to another level..
After listening to a song "IF YOU LOVE SOMEBODY TELL THEM THAT YOU
LOVE THEM and watching the season film of The Secret Life of
American Teenagers. ..when Amy Jeugerns mum told her "you are only
young once". LOL that part got me.
Hope you know what i mean?

Though I'm okay with chemistry class I approached him to coach me for
the Quiz that was coming up, we found out that we had this
great chemistry between us.. hehehe both the covalent and
electrovalent bonds....

So one thing led to another till one unusual Saturday. I invited
him to my house and he came. The guy got swag, he even came
with a packet of durex condom.
We talked for a while and and and and and and
See how you are serious dey read this story....!


A side chick is commonly known as a mistress or a woman that’s romantically involved with a man who is in a committed relationship.  However after doing some reflecting, I realize that’s not the only type of side chick.  I want to discuss “the new side chick”–a woman who decides to stay by a man’s side after he has expressed his lack of relationship intentions with her through his words or actions.  So many women have made this mistake at least once in their lifetime, and unfortunately I’ve done the same thing. I like to think of the new side chick as an appetizer.  You’re there just to satisfy the immediate appetite of the man, but as soon as that mouth-watering entrée comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrée is what he really wanted; he went to the restaurant to order steak, not hot wings.  You were just a placeholder, fling, temporary commitment, or  maybe even just a “good ol time” until what he really wanted was presented to hi…


I'm in an amebo mood tonight. Don't ask me, I honestly don't know why. Also I'd like to share too but I'd do that anonymously in the comment section. Tonight I want to talk about secrets. It's ok, we can all be anonymous. 
Is it true that EVERYBODY has a secret? 
Is there anyone here who doesn't have a secret? I'd really like to know; You're a completely open book and there's not ONE thing about you that you wouldn't mind other people knowing about? Please raise your hands up. 
And for the rest of us, what's something about you that no one knows, or very few people know? Who's got a dark secret here, or a weird one, or a funny one even? I really don't mean to be invasive but I don't want to be the only one sharing, plus I think hearing other people's secrets is quite fun, don't you think?

Let's Be Random Together! (Open Keypad).

Hey guys, a while back blog reader F said something about creating an Open Keypad post, where you can write whatever you want in the comment section. I thought it was a fun idea!
So who is interested? Comment on anything you feel like, ask me or anyone a question, talk about how your day went, your job, your interests, tell us something about you that we don't know, share a testimony with us, rant about anything you feel like, talk about your crush/boo/spouse/relationship/marriage, challenges you're facing, ANYTHING AT ALL! 
I'll only make one request; that we stay civil. 

(F it was you who made this suggestion, right? I'm not too sure and I can't even remember the post the comment was made on). 
BTW please Ejoeccome out come out, wherever you are!

Question of The Day.

TTB readers doesn't this tweet below remind you of something?
That mail that someone sent me a few weeks back. 
But why on earth should a man sleep with his son's fiancé? But what am I saying, some men even sleep with their daughters...

Oh well, I'm throwing the question to you. What has happened in your life that you never saw coming, you never hesperred it, you never imagined could happen, you never imagined could happen to you? 
It could be good, it could be bad, it could be ugly. Do tell!
And it can be more than one. Let me tell you a few. 
-owning a blog -week long dry fast at Prayer City (I never hesperred it).  -staying in an (emotionally) abusive relationship.
The others require anonymity. LOL. Now over to you.
