Over the weekend, a photo of a woman holding a placard on the streets of Lagos and seeking a job for her husband went viral.

Man whose wife stormed Lagos Street to look for job for him wants 200k salary

According popular philantropist on Instagram, KBK, he got in touch with the man and discovered that he currently has a bank job thay pays him N50,000 monthly albeit being owed for several months and will only accept a job with a minimum of N200,000 salary.

KBK wrote:


Some of you might have seen this viral picture of wife scouting job for hubby.

I called the number to offer her husband a job. Maybe create a post for him in the foundation, but I was told, the minimum he will accept per month is N200,000.

Maximum salary I ever offered anyone is a lil lower than the minimum he wants, so NO DEAL!

The man presently works with a bank that pays him 50k and he’s being owed for several months..

He is a graduate of computer science. 

My conclusion: He doesn’t need employment that bad! I pray his preferred job falls on him soon.

Man suffers beating after asking his female friend for s3x and sending her away

​A Nigerian lady has narrated how she sent boys to beat up her male friend who threw her out of his house while it was raining because she refused to have s3x with him.

The lady, @Gbemsssss declared that she now hates guys due to the audacity her supposed friend had to demand it from her, adding that she’s even more furious after the guys she sent to beat him didn’t inflict bodily harms on him.

Read her post below:

I hate men I fucking hate them, went to see my “friend” today and he was moving to me and was demanding sex then I said NO.

Then I told him I’m getting my uber and I want to leave this nigga told me to get out of his house and wait for my uber.

And I was just there wondering to myself and asking myself what I did wrong, the entitlement ? The fucking audacity? I hate men.

Took my phone from me forcefully and deleted his number then I threw his stupid business card at him . After I left I called him and was mad.

I was screaming on top of my voice on the phone. Then he had the audacity to tell me “you know you’re my baby, I was angry cos u left”.

“I was angry cos you don’t want to have anything to do with me , you don’t want to have sex with me that’s why I did that”

see I have never cried this much before , I was pained. Somebody I considered as a friend. RAIN WAS FALLING THIS MORNING BTW. I was under the fuckkng rain. I have suffered.

I am done with men for now. I am so fucking done

Can you guys see this fucking excuse of a man.: (What he sent to her on Whatsapp, after sending her out)

I honestly don’t know why someone can’t have simple relationship with a guy with sex being involved. I’ve already sent people to beat him up.

UPDATE: I just got a call from the guys and they made him call me and apologize to me while he was crying.They only gave him slaps sigh

I’m not impressed, I wanted them to beat him till he can’t move but I guess I’ll just leave it here since his stupid ass apologized.

Despite being years ago, this event is still evergreen and this movie does justice to relive the lives of those who were involved in the attack. On the morning of 9/11, a messenger sings “Happy Birthday” to his daughter, a billionaire argues with his wife in a divorce hearing, a maintenance man begins his day, and a young Russian decides she’s breaking up with her sugar daddy. When the first plane hits the World Trade Center, these five elevator passengers find themselves trapped. Forced to band together, they fight against all odds to escape before the imminent and inevitable collapse occurs.

Nigerian man declares the end of his marriage, just months after having an extravagant ceremony

10 months after having an extravagant wedding, Nigerian man declares the end of his marriage

Donkwe Darlington became a viral sensation in December 2016 when he held one of the most lavish weddings of the year that had so many Nigerian big boys in attendance, with money scattered all over the dancing floor.

10 months after having an extravagant wedding, Nigerian man declares the end of his marriage

But unfortunately, that marriage has come to an end after both parties failed to come to an agreement due to their incompatibilities.

Darlington made the announcement on his Facebook page where he disclosed that him and his wife tried all they could to mend things but it proved abortive so they’ve decided to go separate ways.

The union is blessed with a baby girl.

His post reads:

I have decided to address these and  I promise you that this is not a joke and not an attempt to be snarky. We realize that this probably comes as a shock to a lot of you and we apologize about that. We did not come to this decision lightly. We tried to “fix” our marriage in various ways, on our own and with the help of various professionals. Ultimately, what we are left with is a situation that makes neither of us happy.

We are amicable. We are working together to get through this. We are both hurting💔 but we do not hate each other. We have decided to part at this time in order to maintain congeniality so that we can continue to face our future. We genuinely wish the best for each other going forward. We also ask that if you are going to message us, please do so via private messages instead of a wall post. For those of you who have walked through this with us, you have our thanks and our love. I know that some people might say it’s tacky to announce something so personal on social media but this announcement is going to inspire people to be real and honest to themselves, the plan was to build an empire together not to manage and i place no blame on any of us keep note to this, (judgmental people of Nigeria , we are not just compatible to each other and their is nothing to explain). further statement might come up if pushed to the wall. having said these, i hereby announce to you that our marriage has failed.  #DONKWE

This is why your husbands keep chasing beautiful girls like me – Nigerian lady tells married women

Reason why men cheat

For time immemorial, women have sought the reason why men cheat in marriage.

While some women believe that married men will always cheat on wives because it is inborn in them, this Facebook user, Anulika Nahnah Obiefuna, is saying that women are the cause of it because once they get married, they stop ‘slaying and turn themselves to sacks of beans’ indirectly driving their husbands into the arms of pretty young girls like her.

Reason why men cheat

Her post reads:

The reason why men cheat is simple. Once he gets married to you, then you stop ‘slaying’ You turn to a sack of beans and start using ugly wrappers to cover your commodities. And start screwing with ‘mommy and daddy’ style. What happened to all those things he saw when he met you that made him wife you? Wear panties occasionally around the house. Red or black panties re nice. Be your husband’s slut. It’s you and him till both of you get old. All these women should stop turning to Virgin Mary once he puts a ring on it. Thats how your husbands keep eyeballing fine girls like us and promising us trips to Dubai.

Strange! Church celebrates members who pay the highest tithes during service 

 
Tithe, as it is written in the bible is giving God, by submitting to the church 10% of your income every month but when a church starts announcing the highest tithers for the month, it raises concern about the direction where the church is headed.

A Nigerian Twitter user has disclosed how his church announced the names of the highest tithers in the last 3 months and applauded them, during yesterday’s service. 

He also revealed that this was the handiwork of Assistant pastors as the main Pastor has been away for two months, wondering if he would have curtailed the act if he was around.

Although, he refused to disclose the name of the church.

Read his tweets below:

Church applaud tithe payers

And when someone asked how they were able to get the names, the young man replied that everyone has a tithe card that the church uses to record their payment monthly.
