BellaNaijarians, let’s get talking.

A few minutes ago, former Nigerian actress Regina Askia Williams threw out a question to her fans on her Facebook page.

She asked if African men believe they can have another woman or two after they have fulfilled all responsibilities at home.

The responsibilities include school fees, a comfortable home, the wife’s needs, and basically all the comforts of life.

    And after wasting their time and resources doing that they will turn to those who utilized their time well , demanding for help, medicine, vaccines as if it is their right. Make your own Zmapp people!!

    The sad thing is our Nigerian men really do think it’s ok to do this.. I’ve heard inane things like “what more does she want, I provide everything for her? she lacks for nothing.” Many of our men believe that if they are affluent and good providers, then their wives should shut up and put up with their infidelity. The worse part is that many women put up with this.

      A side chick/kick always a side chick, didn’t you see the word ” side” attached, so apparently you will always be on the side, and I know it hurts you. You can do better than just an ordinary “side” nau. How much do u value urself?………Less?

      What goes around must surely come around. Get ready for another lady to torment u when u get married except if u want to stay single to u die. have it in mind that d prayers/tears of those wives your hurting must surely start working against you some day. take caution

    Its true some think that way.They would even brag that they provide everything the wife needs so she has no reason at all to complain.Even if she reports him to elders thats the first question she will be asked if the husband provides for his family.Once she says yes she gets dismissed.

    Why blame only the men. What of the women who agree to be side chick/kick/piece. Some even crave and hustle to be side chicks. Regina Askia should actually have a Column called “Being A Side Chick” to share her experiences. The advantages and disadvantages, the do’s and don’ts, entry and exit strategies of the side chick business, etc. Mschweeew. Perhaps, the tables have turned…

    It’s not just Nigerian men, please. It cuts across all cultures and the common denominator is usually wealth and power. Once a man is relatively wealthy and powerful and is inclined to stray, he will stray, and justify it by any means necessary, including that he has adequately provided for his family. It’s perhaps more blatant in African culture because for the most part, polygamy is accepted and is not illegal. If a man can marry many wives, then he can as well stray afterall no be from girlfriend dem dey take become wife? If you question him he’ll simply tell you he’s courting his next wife lol…

    Secondly, we have to keep it real, online sistas. Side pieces will never go away. We can’t ‘faith’ them away. We can’t curse them into nonexistence. Some people actually prefer to be side pieces than anything else – it may be hard for some of us to wrap our heads round it but dude, that’s how the cookie crumbles! Sometimes it’s the money, sometimes it’s the company, sometimes it’s the sex, sometimes it’s the knowing you don’t have the demands of his family on you or indeed the demands of him on you 24-7, sometimes it’s just a je ne sais quoi! In a christian religious sense it’s not right, but let’s not forget that there are so many people out there who do not subscribe to christianity in any form at all. I know that people change, yet the interesting thing is that for most men that will eventually stray, the signs are there right from the start, but we choose to ignore them for reasons best known to us and start to cry foul later.
