    Controversial yeah, but I read a lot same day that were equally as bad. Twitter is a small country, it has its presidents and VPs. If they are for you, you can commit murder, not a word will be said, if they aren’t, the citizens will join to sentence you to death. This same twitter where people call a sitting president imbecile, no? Your decision, but I see no need in deactivating. Apologise and move on..

    The apology to me is not sincere. I don’t jnow, it’s just worded somehow. More like sorry I got caught.
    Let’s be careful with our words. Not every young lady marrying a older man is a gold digger. Did you ever give it a thought that they might actually be in love? Watching this Rita Dominic’s movie “the meeting” gave some perspective about huge age gaps in marriage/relationships. I know it is just a nollywood movie but it still touches on reality. Some women would rather be with a man they feel is mature. Just leave them alone, it’s their choice and their bukata to bear. Please let us think before we criticize sometimes. Stop stereotyping every lady you see out there. It is not fair.

    What else can you expect from so called metrosexuals. You think women are woed by spending hours in a gym while your brains and moral compass shrinks to the size of peanuts. You prove your manhood not by real conquests but by displaying your “eggplant” on Instagram. Real women are drawn to individuals who inspite of thier looks tame thier base nature and shape their immediate environment by the force of thier will. Oshiomole iis a hundred times more manly than you can ever imagine to be.
