“I officially welcome you to 2019! Year of fulfillment for us all!
I thank God for the gift of life & health in 2018, my BEST year so far.
As Alexx Ekubo say make we dey talk our truth in 2019, oya here is my most profound & vulnerable public post ever.
2018 I got married in full to the most perfect man on earth!
Wow that’s a great “ACHIEVEMENT”
YES marriage is an achievement for me!
I set my alarm clock for yr 28th bt God’s time is the best, desperately waiting for extra 5yrs was somewhat overwhelming
Not 100% fulfilled but I still feel lucky & blessed ;
Better half-caste like me ….Born American citizen & raised full Naija style;
built my own house in my 20’s;
still hussling hard for greater career goals in my 30’s;
yet to buy my dream car before 40;
taking care of a couple of orphans & less privileged kids;
made blockbuster movies with the topmost A-Lists in Nollywoood; bagged my Masters degree from the best University in Newyork; was abt to grab my PHD in same Uni but the “Perfect Husband Degree” found me instead …I was tired of being single .
Nevertheless, a private jet & a home in Ikoyi won’t hurt, bt 1st, the kids to rock them with & a father figure for them, as an authentic traditional, conservative,religious, native Nwafo Igbo…ohh my ovaries…can’t wait to have my 1st biological child with my 1st Love in my 1st marriage
For all my mature single Divas praying God for same “Achievement” 2019 is your year! .
For my under 20s who set their alarm clock for 28/29, pls move it backwards oh….don’t repeat my mistake cos….husband is not like money in the bank that you withdraw at Will, once you clock 30+ odikwa very very risky ooh, those eggs don’t wait for no slayer; consider dating time, wedding planning time, pregnancy time….you might be fast approaching 35 b4 having ur 1st child….May 2019 I will be 34, U see…hopefully, my 1st child b4 I’m 35
I know age is nothing but a numb bt not for those eggs….I personally lowkey admire Mercy Aigbe, Omotola, Iyabo Ojo & others who just turned 40 but already blessed wit teen seeds….I know they had their own trials too by starting so early, but dear little ones, you can meet us halfway”
