    Congrats to them. I guess Nigerians are now following in the path of black americans. Making out of wedlock babies. Anyways, wish them all the best.

    It creeps in gradually- morals going to the dustbins and all by those with powers of influence (unfortunately over kids mainly) while the rest of society goes “well, good luck sha”
    Read of the horrors playing out in the west and here too by men that have relegated God and the morals from godly teachings. Nigeria cannot be immune, it will only take some time for the ill to breed as we have seen with Boko Harma|

    OMG! Nigerians are too freaking judgmental!!!!!! If their relationship is working just fine and they are in love and are a two parent household , what does it matter to you that they r not married. They are raising their kids together and are obviously together. Stop looking for role models and go be your own damn role model. I am getting so sick and tired of the negative comments on bellanaija. They will get married when they are good and ready…until then, say congrats or keep it moving.

      I guess ur not a Nigerian? ur probably not caucasian either! U think ur very liberal abi? listen my dear we(that know who we are) Nigerians refer our society to retain some traits of its high morals.
      we do it this way: proposa-marriage and THEN children. thats the dream of most ladies, probably u included if you r one. Dont deceive yourself my dear.

    Perer, listen to me o, if you want to keep producing shidren, be ready to marry d woman now.

    On a serious note, it’s Lola’s choice, she seems okay to be in that position. Peter is an artist, he probably doesn’t want to be tied down yet. I just hope they will eventually marry, so we won’t have another 2face around.

    • Naveah

      August 13, 2012 at 8:40 pm

      Nne Naija babe, you dey give am excuse! So HE doesn’t want to be tied down BUT he CAN TIE HER, abi? He can go running around from post to post but she can be saddled with two children without the benefits of a legal standing as a full wife who has been presented to God, his family and the community? Ah! Thank God sha sey she no be my sister, I would have had a real serious conversation with female members of his family and ask them if they would like it if it was their sister.

    Guess she is comfortable being the mother of his children and less bordered about d guy being legally married to her or what ever,else she would’t be with him.Is up to her how ever she decides to leave her life, I don’t know if to call this desperation or something else. *Eyes rolls up*

  27. my two cents

    August 10, 2012 at 8:33 pm

    We all know that as women, we may be dieing for the guy to commit and yet because of our fear of driving him away, pretend to be ok with his lack of commintment. A woman who has spent so long with a man, has two children and claims she is ok with no real commitment is decieving herself, and nobody else. NO WOMAN sleeps with a guy for upwards of six months without (even if it’s secretly) wanting commitment.

    Where has our moral values gone? What will our children do?
    His parents brought him up in a functional family unit. Doesnt that say something?
    If we continue like this, all morality will be gone before we know it.
    Both parties should consider doing the moral thing. Procreation was made for a man and woman who are bound together in the eyes of God officially. I am no saint and yes I am a single young woman who will continue to preach about this because I care for the future of my children. I dont want to raise my children in a disfunctional society that has no moral values.

    @ My two cents

    You are absolutely correct. All these women pretending to be okay, cry themselves to sleep wondering why he’s not putting them first. Many women have children, because they think it will change the guy’s mind to want to marry them. In London, so many Yoruba girls having children out of wedlock with different men. It’s a shame. We are picking up the negative influence of the western world again. Black Americans are notorious for that. Do you see how it destroyed the family structure among Blacks.
    IT’S NOT OKAY. Let’s stick to morals and values of marriage before children. I understand, mistake happens but to keep deliberately impregnating women with no interest in marrying them is wrong like 2face situation. Seven children? didn’t marry any of them, but stuck to his last option bcos he’s getting old and people bashed him.

    Look how beautiful she is,let her chill out,stop having babies for him,d guy would be compelled to be legally married to her. Chicks saying they find nothing wrong wt an illegal marriage are not friends of lola,her secret friends are d ones advising a legal marriage.Let me ask this,would any one here encourage her daughter or sister to be involve in such?NO NO NO.My only concern is for d kids,this guy is an halfcast,partly igbo,partly jos.Here is d thing,as long as he has an igbo blood when he gets elderly and passes on then lola will understand,u will hear things like ur father never married ur mother traditionally or legally,as such u are not entitled to this and that property.Lola Lola,how many times hv i called u,better smarten up sweetie.Good luck.

    One day we will wake up to find the world that we all know gone because those that sighted this gathering storm were shushed. History has proven that the majority can also be wrong, if not all the time. There is a certain rebellious spirit at work in the world, opposing everything that is true, noble! Right, pure, lovely, admirable! Excellent and praiseworthy all in the name of enlightenment. It does not matter if you believe in GOD or the big bang theory or neither. It does not change a Thing! Nature MUST fight her cause. In the words of W.B Yeats ”     Turning and turning in the widening gyre
        The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
        Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
        Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world”….. Lord Jesus please have mercy on Us. Amen

    i do not mean to be insultive…generally yoruba’s do not care about this marriage or no thing…………look at 2eace… was almost all yoruba girls…igbo’s would insist on condom or contraceptive……….

    but in all lola loves peter so much and you see it all over her……….but what can she do if the guy do not want to propose ………is it that easy to neglet a naked light skin girl……outside all of this everybody knows that peter and paul are very responsible…………..

    Love is not enough.Why become a baby factory? i understand the first may be mistake.but why continue like Pero did for Tuface ? Are we kidding ourselves ?.I don’t believe Igbo girls insist on condoms,they abort( I had lived with them for years and know what they can also do!).Not that its right either.I am Yoruba and just concern at the trend of Yoruba women being STUPID LIKE THAT,and see TUFACE did,he did not marry any of them.Peter probably wont marry Lola either.What is stopping him? Its a deep shame that we,YORUBA,are being portrayed this way.You can almost always predict IN THIS CASES that its a YORUBA WOMAN. AHA!!??!!!?

    It’s our business, because we are their fans. And, whatever is going on in his personal life is also important. Peter, marry your babymama. Don’t follow the footsteps of 2face. Lola, you better wise up, if he’s man enough to keep sleeping with you, then get pregnant, he should be man enough to want to marry you and be his wife. And, those young girls out there having abortion are no better either, kudos to Lola for having the baby but she has to make a decision for her children. If she want them to see daddy and mommy in the same house or separate houses.

    the bible says dat the heart of man is desperately wicked, no man can understand it. It is high time we stop blaming one another or person’s tribe for decay in our lives, communities and country. It right dat the bible has said that marriage is honorable with the bed undefiled, but how many off you that posted comment can truly say that no man no seen their unwear?
    Pls know that we are in the end time already and am using this medium to ask u to pls accept the LORD JESUS INTO YOUR LIFE SO THAT IT CAN BE WELL WITH YOU! hugs

    always and always will be a yoruba woman, pregnant to hook the poor dude, having kids won’t keep d dude, just keep praying anyway, okay first a mistake, second could be make up sex, hahahaha, hate me for my statement but weather you like it or not, it was not planned, lovely kid though i must commend, the news was already flying so he had to say it out to make her feel alright(supportive man). i love psquare, always will!!! but honestly don’t know why he is flaunting fornication to his fans(it is not normal), in as much as he wants to prove to his woman that he is supporting her, na wa ohhhh, where is our morals, values, norms…….i refuse to follow the trend, goodluck to you peter, i still love my psquare sha………….

    @ Numommy – disclaimer: This no be fight o abeg, na discussion o. It is their life, me and you we no sabi dem personally but for the sake that they are public figures, we can dissect the situation for conversation sake.

    I would really love to know if that was your sister, if you would still feel the same way. I am sorry but that piece of paper called a marriage certificate is to protect the interests of both parties but especially that of the woman. What does it cost to go to court even if they don’t have a huge ceremony? Traditions are in place for a reason, what kind of example are they setting for their son who will most likely go and perpetrate this same existence with someone else’s daughter. I am sorry, we are NOT and will NEVER be Westerners. This way of life is not something we grew up in Nigeria, western choices are truly eroding the fabric of our society. As adults, we can chose to do certain things even if its to our detriment but once you have children, it behooves us to live our lives as examples for them because we are raising the next generation. If this man decides to put her out one day, what recourse does she have? After all the man never made him his legal wife! Can she get alimony? No! Can she get a share of their joint account (assuming they have one together in which she has contributed her share and she’s not staying there waiting for feeding money)? No! What about a home? Nope! She has NO LEGAL rights! She is by all accounts a jump off, a babymama, girlfriend, she is not a wife in the traditional or western sense. She will be left holding two babies and her suitcases. She is performing the duties of a wife without the long term benefit, without the respect of being given that title or the proper standing within his family, without her children being given his name in the legal sense so if something happens tomorrow, how do those children inherit when they are NOT even legally recognized?

    Does it take five years and two children for a man to know that this is the woman for him? If they are in love, he isn’t broke, what exactly is the problem? If they are not emotionally ready, why bring more children into the drama? What father wants to see his daughter living with a man who doesn’t have the respect to at least bear wine and bring his parents to officially state his intentions but keeps impregnating his daughter? No father or mother can ever be happy with that type of situation, abeg. Mba!

      nwanne m ekwu araya ekwu a….if it is an igbo woman, if the man don’t put a ring on her finger or carry palmwine, alcohol drinks, kolanut e.t.c she wouldn’t have any 2nd child for you. in fact her family will almost want to disown her. Like i always tell my sisters and my friends LADIES we are IN CONTROL. trust me, when a man approaches you and you set your standards up front, a man who loves you will go through the hoops to be with you. but when you don’t set your standards and allow men to do whatever they want with you, then THAT’S THE LADY’S FAULT. in this case LOLA YOU NEED TO WISEN UP! Stop all this babymama thing. #sayingthiswithlove #Goodluck
