Hey guys! So yesterday Saturday the 1st of August, Tony Elumelu, Akon and some Nigerian celebrities; Omoni Oboli, Banky W, Jesse Jags, Stephanie Coker et al enjoyed a fun day on a yacht.
Naturally it was a fun day filled with photo-worthy moments, however one photo in particular seemed to have got a lot of reaction from people and mostly negative. The comment below expressed the sentiments of many:
"Dear Omoni, why do you court negative publicity like this. This could be an innocent picture but it speaks volumes. Even if Toma took the picture must you post it?! You have children and you leave your questionable digital footprints along the way. I give up! Nnamdi speak to your wife she is not the only successful actress in Nollywood. We your friends are ashamed of your lackadaisical attitude, it is not love. Man up!"
Several other comments expressed distaste at the photo and I wonder about it.
Ok, to be honest when I first saw the picture I been know say yawa don gas! It seems ever since the infamous picture with former president Goodluck Jonathan, people have looked for any and every opportunity to point fingers at Omoni.
Their reactions raise questions; is a married Nigerian woman not allowed to have male friends? Or is she simply not allowed to be photographed with them? Now this is a blanket question as I believe that the relationship here is mainly professional and these people have some business in the offing. Still, is this picture inappropriate? Do you see anything wrong with the picture taken above? And now, to my most important question;
This commenter calls Nnamdi Oboli lackadaisical. Yes, some people find him to be the docile husband who stands by watching by as his Mrs does as she pleases. However some people say what Nnamdi is, is secure. Only a secure man will stand by unperturbed and unthreatened as his wife goes forth and conquers. So I ask; Nnamdi Oboli; Mr Docile or Mr Secure? Where does one draw the line between secure and passive in a relationship?
(*although I don't know the couple personally, I've met them once and Nnamdi did come off as a very secure supportive husband who understands that his wife's success is his success. #my2cents*)
