Gender Equality? Yes. An Alpha Male? Lord, Yes!





The bile was right there in my throat when I read that Kendu Blige (yes since he wants Mary J Blige to pay him 6 figures in divorce settlements then he must answer her surname) is asking his soon to be ex wife Mary J Blige for six figures in divorce settlement because he has GROWN ACCUSTOMED to the life of luxury in which he lived when they were married, especially as she was the sole breadwinner during their 12 year marriage. 

Even before I heard anyone's reaction I already knew that many men and anti-feminists will scream Yes it's good, Gender Equality, abi? And stick their tongues out saying Where are all you Chimamanda followers?

Right. 

Truth be told this is gender equality. 

Greater truth be told only a weak ass man would ask a woman for that amount of money, in a divorce settlement. Especially one who couldn't come up with a better reason than "I'm now used to the good life and it's your fault", and yeah "You shouldn't have been the breadwinner for that long, you've made me useless".πŸ˜’πŸ˜°πŸ˜‘


So yes, while I strongly advocate gender equality, I pray for a man who's too much of a man to shamelessly dabble in such shenanigans. One who's too much of an alpha male to allow me to shoulder the financial burdens of the home alone, no matter how wealthy or successful I am. A man who's naturally averse of  all forms of pettiness. 

I pray for a MAN. 

I also pray that you dissipate the anger in my spirit I feel towards this Kendu individual and persons like him.

And on that day I bid you all a splendid day!



Ok... Rant over. What are your thoughts on the Kendu-Mary situation? Do you think she should be made to pay him alimony, and why?

  1. Is his name really Kendu-Mary? No wonder he's acting like a woman...lol
    Yes,hes entitled to divorce settlement but the reason for the settlement figures is just cheap (and I wld say the same thing too if a woman uses the same divorce lines).

    As Kanye wld say,"if you ain't no punk, holla we want prenup (we want prenup...yeah!)

  2. My own is that he signed a prenup and he still wants alimony reason being that he signed the prenup in the absence of a lawyer. Presence of a lawyer is not a prerequisite to a valid contract. If that prenup was not signed then he is entitled to his alimony, my only vex would have been be why Mary J Blige entered into the without thinking of a prenup. I felt the same way when I heard Johnny Depp did not have a prenup. If you let "love" overcome common sense then you deserve whatever you get. J

  3. what a life we now live in.
    l read something last week and l felt for the men of this generation.
    mama has a daughter and son. both attend the same school. the girl takes first in class while the boy takes any other position from 10 downward. They stay in the same house. The girl enters kitchen to help mum. cleans the room for parents after school. the boy watch TV or play games. They entered university the same month. girl goes to learn skill after classes. The boy stays in his hostel chatting or playing games with phone. Both graduate same day. No job. girl opens shop. starts practicing the extra skill she learn while in school . hmmmm the thing too long abeg
    check most marriages in Nigeria today. 60% women are breadwinners. either in their marriage or fathers house. God dey heaven sha

    If its the woman that is proposing the divorce, let her pay the man and move on with her life. Watch how that money she gave him will finish without a short while cos he does not know how to struggle and turn wealth around.

    2. 60% of women are bread winners?? Where did this information come from? How did you get it? I think its false. Not that it matters. I just dont like it when false numbers are thrown around to make a point. Somebody can pick this information and carry it around like its fact.

      Peace.

  6. Why did she settle for a broke ass . When you are a celeb and female you dont find cheap love. Cos it will be hard to tell how genuine it is.

    It is always a recipe for disaster. From witney n Bobbi, to the many holly wood break ups.

    Anyway while i am megally pissed st the kenduski guy. Who is also a cheating ass.
    She should hv known better n gotten s tight ass lawyer.

    How does she respect a man who sits on his sorry n broke arse for 12 good year s.

  7. He wasn't sitting on his ass all those years, he was her manager. But yeah,thats some weak ass move asking for that amount of money.

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…

#WriteRight. VIVIAN: MY FIRST SEX EXPERIENCE WITH MY BOYFRIEND

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
Kai!
See how you are serious dey read this story....!

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.

THE ‘NEW’ SIDE CHICK: I WAS HER

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 entrΓ©e comes out to the table, you will get pushed to the side, literally.  Why?  Because that entrΓ©e 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…

Shhhhhhh....

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!
