    Dabota Lawson please don’t fall a victim of trends. He is too old for you . It’s not easy to deal with men like this. I just pray it goes well with you. I know it seem like a lot of people are rooting for your downfall but so many people can’t also be wrong. You’re a very beautiful girl . Sometimes we the public viewer and most of us who comment on social media are not helping situations by attacking her. It only makes her go forward to what would lead to a disaster. A man that has been married over more 3 times is not the kind of man a girl of your class should be going for. I honestly believe what a lot of people have been trying to say in mean words is you can do better for yourself. And I’m surprised at her family and friends. Did she really convince them that she was in love, is she that stubborn or was it jazz? Someone needs to save her from herself. I’m an example of a failed attempt at this type of marriage and no matter what front you put up. We know what goes on in the home . It’s not a bed of roses. My 50 cent .

    Nothing wrong with consenting adults freely entering into a business-social arrangement – good luck to the couple!

    • Lois

      January 21, 2015 at 2:11 pm

      don’t forget to add emotional, sexual and financial too…marriage is a total package. Whatever rocks anybody’s boat+ it is her life not any other’s

    Lots of hypocrisy. A lot of people would give an arm and an eye to be in her position. Don’t hate the playe, hate the game

      I swear,that one na true talk, haters can talk several seats abeg! babe has hammered,her generations will never suffer,man is man o jare…will he take of her? yes! Will he be caring and shower her with love? Ahan the pictures speak for themselves….babe is correct Jo!!! I dey hail,she sharp abeg. Better a mature rich man,than a penniless young tout any day!

      Don’t be fooled. Men like this a super possessive and suspicious. He didn’t get to his level by missing a trick. No cash just gifts. Trips abroad and shopping done with cards. Eyes on her 24/7. And as soon as she clocks 40 her tenure is done. Nothing in her name. If you doubt it, hear out his 3 ex wives.
      They can do what they like. They are free to but as a society we do ourselves a collective dis- service by advocating unprincipled behaviour for the sake of promoting certain freedoms.

      January 21, 2015 at 2:12 pm

      God bless you. Hypocrites too much for social media, in fact naija

    @baboushka I totally agree with you. . I am not doubting that she loves him… but if he wasnt a billionaire she probably wld not have given him time of day in the first place

    • alvin

      December 17, 2014 at 10:14 am

      would he have given her the time of day if she wasn’t pretty???

    • Lois

      January 21, 2015 at 2:13 pm

      PROBABLY I emphasize. For you to be sure of your submission, you must have been actively involved in their lives and relationship…..

    December 17, 2014 at 10:26 am

    am not trying to justify her choices but do we not all marry/date our spouses/bf for different reasons apart from love. Maybe cos of good looks, social class, money, comfort, desperation, just to name a few. so before u come on here and judge anyhow, ask yourself if you not guilty of the same thing.

    • Lois

      January 21, 2015 at 2:16 pm

      A woman who marries a man for any other reason asides LOVE be it family pressure, society, looks, future prospects, age difference, Parents wealth, sex, political consolidation, social status and so on is no different from she who marries for financial gratification

    @baboushka . Would you marry a roast corn seller?

    December 17, 2014 at 7:55 pm

    Dabota is a knowledgeable and exposed/informed girl, she has lived and traveled and seen the world. do you think she doesn’t know what is best for her own self? Come out of your small minds and your small shells. If it was simply money, rich young men are many too. Love happens in the unlikeliest places and I wish her nothing but the best.

    I just couldn’t get past the picture of my yeye Governor. He’s always free for such. He will never send a representative to ANY ceremony or occasion. Why won’t he be there when he doesn’t have anything he does in his office, mtcheew 8 years in power with only a renovated secondary school to show for it. He’s not even bothering to patch the roads as usual.

    The difference in the age and the height though! can’t help asking if that was true love.

    Me I’m just loving the half-caste ladies. Half-caste: a person having parents of different races or offspring of different parents, e.g Upper body part belonging to Mr & Mrs Cream, lower body part belonging to Nigerian Parents. OKbye
