    Sometimes, do you just look at people and wonder if they will marry a Nigerian man? Lol

    I wonder if Cuppy or the oyinbo Indimi sisters will marry a Nigerian man…

    P.S. They really inherited their mothers’ genes… You won’t believe they’re age when you see them.
    Regardless of the fact that they carry Nigeria with pride, I doubt they have the pressures of a typical Nigerian woman (in terms of marriage). Considering they’re partially oyinbo.

    *My honest opinion! No offence intended!*

      LOL! Are their fathers not Nigerians? Of course, they will marry Nigerians in their circle.

      I doubt they have the pressures of a typical Nigerian woman (in terms of marriage?) –
      You’d be surprised the “typical Nigerian woman” is better off and much happier.

      If given a chance, they will marry whoever they want to marry but their parents will most likely say no, along the lines of “you have to marry this person and that person’s son/daughter.” For example, you think D’Banj won’t have married Adama in a jiffy? Ask Baba Indimi what he thinks of the “friendship.”

      I know a certain young lady with a well-respected family name with who was once dating a certain goodlooking, popular actor. When her mother heard of the relationship (or “infatuation” as the woman preferred to call it) if you see the sharpness with which she made sure her daughter called it off, you for fear the level of interference. Today that young lady has been carefully paired up with someone who Madre deems a more suitable match and I feel sad for the girl because it’s clear she’s acting out a script written by her parents.

      And you’re right, the same rule applies to the sons – the young lady’s brother was similarly “persuaded” to end a relationship with some babe he claimed to love but wasn’t accepted. I say “claim” since he didn’t putting up a harder fight to stand by his choice….

    Truth is, without her fathers money, she wouldn’t be as successful in this career as she is now.

    Her father’s money bought her popularity and acceptance…

    I really like her. She seems cool. & I’m happy she is using her privilege for a good cause… Go on, Cuppy!

      how are you SOOOO sure she wont be as successful ….you be God?

      Easy to judge others …remove the iroko tree in your eyes.

      My honest opinion too.

    She may be beautiful but the best thing about her is the honesty of her smile.

    I follow her on instagram, she appears a very genuine, cheerful, full of life, happy girl…and don’t say it’s because of her daddy’s money, there are rich people who are miserable, she’s just a bright girl…

    Cuppy is FAB in african print. Ok….but she is 99% of the time in african prints naaaaw., so nothing new here. The only difference is just that she has (finally!) let that hair down instead of her usual pony tail

    I feel they are over using this girls platform… Over use becomes abuse..The fashion director didnt do well with her outfit and look.
