A Nigerian lady has shared a situation involving her sister’s estranged husband which has left her totally confused.
She revealed that her elder sister’s husband proposed marriage to her just two months after they got separated.
According to the 29-year-old lady, the man and her sister had been married for five years, and they only separated in November 2021 even though they aren’t officially divorced.
She revealed that after their separation, she and her in-law got close and he was paying her frequent visits to a point where she began to enjoy his company.
However, he suddenly asked for her hand in marriage and she is confused on whether to accept it or not. The lady further revealed that she would be 30 years old on 2nd of February.
In her words; ”Please, I need only matured minds on this.
It’s a serious matter.
My elder sister and her husband were married for 5 years and separated November last year but not divorced yet, though the families have been trying to reconcile them to come back together but my sister’s husband has been adamant about it.
I noticed that ever since his separation from my sister he started visiting my place, and now it has become frequent.
I allowed it because I see him as a brother, but now I am starting to really enjoy his company.
He has been helping me out with stuff and still maintains his kindness towards my parents.
He proposed marriage to me yesterday, and I have been confused.
Nigerian Dancehall and Afrobeats star, Damini Ogulu, known professionally as Burna Boy, has demanded the unity of African countries.
The Grammy winner made this call in a recent interview with CNN, noting that African countries may only achieve the respect they seek if they band together.
Burna also said that he wished every country on the continent were using a single passport for international travels.
He added; “It cannot be achieved by the way it’s been going, we’ve been falling for a long time so why not try something new?
“It’s just a wish, maybe a farfetched wish. I wish we had one passport which would make it easier for Africans to travel outside the continent. I wish we could be considered as the United States, like the way America is … (Let’s say) me and you want to go to Spain or wherever on a commercial flight — let’s see who gets in first.”
When asked who should be on the currency of this “United Africa,” Burna said; “On the currency should be people who have had these ideas for generations, who have died with these ideas and have been killed for these ideas. People like Moammar Gadhafi [former leader of Libya who was overthrown and assassinated in 2011] whose everything was about uniting Africa and having one currency, backed by gold.”
