16 Places To Meet a Poor Husband In Lagos.

After carrying out lots of deep research, these are places you would never find Dangote’s son cousin brother-in-law. When the chair-lady of Nigerian single girls says don’t be found in these places, sisters, don’t!
1. Career fairs All the attendees are broke and are looking for a job except the host and the host is usually married!
2. Oshodi Under Bridge Can any good thing come out of this place? Any good thing?
3. Sabo Yaba sigh
4. Ozone Yaba Chances are pretty slim. Just Unilag boys roaming around in carrot jeans and palm slippers. Don’t waste your time abeg.
5. Computer Village You might lose a Bosom or another body part in the process of trying to find a man here. 
6. ICM Is it just me or does ICM seem like a place to meet a boyfriend but not a husband? Too many kidults. I stand to be corrected though.
7. Markets Except you are a lesbian.
8. Names of places in Lagos that contains the word ‘bridge’ in it.
9. All the bus stops in the mainland. In fact, once you descend 3MB towards the mainland axis. Don’t reply any stranger that says, ‘excuse me’.
10. Motor parks where Lagos to Abuja is N2, 300.
11. MTN centres. The people that frequent here are people that complain over the slightest things. E.g “I loaded N100 in my phone last night and N2 was gone by morning! I am not leaving this office until you return my money back.” Don’t let that sort of man put you inside house oh.
12. Job interviews/reality show auditions. This is a gamble. You are free to give him your number but don’t reply that sms until he has successfully scaled through, the reality show has ended and he is declared winner. For job interviews, only if he gets the job. Don’t worry you are not a gold digger. Just a woman who knows what she wants.
13. BRT buses Have you noticed everybody always looks sad in BRT buses? Maybe it’s because they are thinking of their 0.28 account balance. Once you get in, HEADSET ON!
14. Justrite Supermarket Justrite prides itself in offering unbeatable prices of good. Any man found shopping here is looking for the cheapest alternative so therefore, that sort of man will give you N270 to cook soup.
15. 2go When you read cases of people meeting their husbands on social networks and you take a decision to try your luck on 2go, you are on your own.
16. Eco Bank Is it just me or is there a stereotype that surrounds bankers in Eco Bank. It’s one thing to find a rich husband, it’s another thing to pray he’s not a stingy rich husband or you’ll wish you married yourself.

This Nairaland list had me in stitches. What other places do you think should have made the list? Please let us know, and what's ICM (#6) by the way?


  1. Lmao!!! Who are these people? Hehehe
    ICM-Ikeja City Mall.

  5. Thelma!!!!! TTBVs!!!! Come and hear gist ooo!loool! You won't believe what happened to me... to us(sunshine and I) today
    That's how I went for Daystar Carol service(which was absolutely beee-yooou-tiful) and sunshine saved a sit for me beside this young, dark and handsome guy. Not your regular hunk.. but nice, calm and very pleasant guy. So I arranged myself very well.. I know they say Daystar is a good place to pick-a-boo! Lool. But that sunshine(RKM- Rep Killing Machine.. lool) will not allow somebody to form... kept hugging me and making funny comments.. + teju baby face too.. I was just laughing out loud like wan... ha! to top it all... momsy decided to bless us with a cooler of food and some other stuff(we need to start showing her our birth certificate from time to time.. lol.. just in case she has forgotten we are big girls now.. lol!) I digress...
    Any way... each time they sing one "alujo" song.. the guy would get up and dance.. had some nice moves.. at least better than the person on my left(dont ask who that was! Lol)
    So there was a time Teju babyface said look to the person beside you and tell them your name.. nah so I give the guy my FULL name... I can't believe I don't remember the name he told me! arrgh!!!
    Anyway... end of service now... Fuji alujo... twas madt!!!!!!! na so I scatter dance! I no even look Uche face!
    If you got to this part... I congratulate you! cuz the big cat is about to be let out of the bag.. some smart people would have guessed what this looong story is about.

    So that's how the very pleasant, calm and collected.. don't forget handsome.. young man beside me was about to leave... and I must say he missed a lot... sunshine and I had to practically drag ourselves out of that hall so we could get home on time to prepare for tomorrow! I digess again!!!! Loool!

    So back to my pleasant, not-very-regular hunk... he stretched out his hand and repeats my full name... and then smiles and drops the bomb! You won't believe what he said next! KABUOY!!!! I was like waaat?!!! Who are you and how do you know my pseudo name!!!! My private name known (only) to my blog family..
    TTBVs... you won't believe who it was...
    "Some smart BVs already figured it out by now" but allow me the courtesy of introducing who blew my cover!
    The one! The only!!! Master in writing well thought out... with plenty plenty oyinbo words like "addendum"(who uses that... lol!) in comments... my mentor in writing long comments such as this... CHRISYINKS!!!!! lmaooo!
    I screamed ehn! Loool!
    So yeah! He slyed us and allowed us display before he introduced himself! Who does that?!!!! Who?!!!! Lool!(so not fair)
    Like what are the odds of meeting a BV in the most unexpected place right?! Right?!! Hehehe!!!

    Anyway.. that was a very pleasant surprise.. twas nice "meeting" you... + you've got some very nice fuji moves o! lmaoo! The raising one leg up thing and the hand move. You tried the shoki but errr... let's just leave it there! loool! As I couldn't hug you very well..(sweat and all.. chai!) here is your bear hug! *HUGS* + chrisyinks was forming badt dancer... he left his seat so he could dance well... hehe.. thanks for the space anyway... I could do my yoruba-ijebu dance conveniently without any hindrance! Lol!

    4. Wow, fancy meeting a BV that would be so cool, btw about this list I don't know about rich but there is thiss cute customer service guy at Ecobank townplanning,I had a minicrush on him so I can't write them all

    5. Lol. Diarris wahala o. Please which Daystar branch is that?

    6. Yeah, what are the odds? Your name, then I heard you mention your sister's name in passing (which has been mentioned on the blog) and the most convincing, your bubbly personality gave you up. These adjectives; young, dark ...... are you sure you are describing me or should I be jealous of some other dude ehhn, or maybe I should go change my mirror. hmmmm, my written English is as good as it gets, my spoken English is easily comparable to any other average Emeka, Yomi or Musa. It was nice to have met you both. You both are great dancers. I'd go improve my dancing moves now. I'd hope to redeem my BEAR hug in person.

    7. Loool @ memphis! The one and only na ni.

      @Chrisyinks... you'll get your bear hug o! maybe next carol service?! Lool! If Jesus tarries in his coming.

    8. Hahaha! Chrisyinks ehn!

      All through last night when we got home, we kept remembering all the silly things we did And he just waited till the very end to introduce himself as Chrisyinks, we both screamed! And she cant remember the name u gave her... Smh..

      It was very good to have met you..

      Plus y'all that didnt attend Daystar's carol last night, you missed big time *side eyes at Maybel*

      @Memphis, Daystar has only one branch, do you want to go and give Chrisyinks "flying tackle" ni? I can mail you the address

    9. Already praying for Jesus to tarry, let's see if He'd answer this prayer. Besides, Memphis, your boy is loyal ohh!

    10. Sunshine well done ohhhh,I no get your time,madam all round carol attender*tongue out*

    11. Lol.that was an Epic meeting.

  6. Ehen jare... to the post! 2, 8, 13 and 16 had me in stitches! What did ecobank guys do to this writer?! Lmaoo! This is some deep "sturv" lool!

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.
