Just for laffs
Despite the political jingo, massive killings and kidnapping, heightened tension in the polity ahead of Feb 14th election and other news flying about on teevee with screaming headlines on newspapers, you still manage to see things like this, on a close perusal in Nigerian Newspapers; Ade, 22, undergraduate needs a sugarmummy to help him finance his education. Only interested sugarmummies should call this number..080…
Supo, 42, HIVpositive, hardworking, intelligent needs a HIV positive lady between ages 25-38 for a serious relationship. Call this number 080..
Yeah, welcome to naija where every ‘rubbish’ sells like hot cake. Where idle youths look for marriage or bed partners through newspaper adverts.
I grew up reading (devouring is a better word) the Tribune titles. Hehehe, Mr Mogboyin, my English teacher in secondary school, the college of science can testify to that. Oh yeah, he reads my blog now..interesting,isnt it? In those days, newspapers were filled with interesting topics, even though there was always an ‘agony aunt’ column. I have a sister whose only interest in reading a paper is because of the ‘agony aunt’ column. I found the habit odd yet fascinating.
All of a sudden, this ‘man need woman’ advert began to come up and before i knew it, most of the nigerian newspapers i read gravitated towards it. Well, i moved on to the SUN titles in 2003. I still read the Tribune titles though but i fell in love with SUN.
Several thoughts run through my mind when i see such things in the papers. Is there no sanctity in marriage again? Has it become child’s play? Something you look for on the pages of a newspaper in a non comittal way just like that? You need a sugarmummy and you are bold to say it and look for it?
Thank God Nigeria signed the anti-gay bill into existence. Otherwise, we would have been seeing,” Dende, 25, gay needs a romantic gay partner for a serious relat ionship. Only interested and serious gay men should call”
Hmmm, drop your comments.
