Empress Njamah 2On Baby Mamas

Most of them, who pretend that they are happy about being ‘Baby Mamas’ go home and feel sorry for themselves wishing that have a proper man.

On the Short Lifespan of Marriages in 2016

Most of the things happening in the industry are not encouraging. This week, you are happy and have a big wedding, the next, you have broken up. What is the essence?

On Women Outnumbering Men in the Dating Pool

I have friends who feel that they have got to a certain age and they are not taken. These days, there are 30 women to a man. There is no pressure on me for not being married because I come from an enlightened family.

    This girl is very stupid. Typical African female mentality. A baby mama desires the companion of a man but you yourself are single like the baby mama and seemingly happy. If you can be happy single why is it hard to understand that some single mothers are also happy single.

      single mother and baby mama….how they take correlate?
      baby mama: a woman who chooses to have a baby for a man she knows is unavailable, probable because he is rich or popular..
      y’all know the meaning of a single mother….
      comparing baby mamas to single mothers is an insult to women who had to raise kids themselves, through no fault of theirs.

      It would be interesting to know how you arrived at your definition of baby mama. To the best of my knowledge it is a term used to describe a woman who has a child with a man she is not married to. Irrespective of fame or financial status of said baby daddy. A significant proportion of baby mamas and daddies in the US where the phrase originated are young, poor and not famous.

      Why use d word “stupid”? u can air your opinion without using fowl words at a woman who doesn’t even know u exist, boys like you should learn how to address people older than u….am sure u feel more stupid now.

    ‘…there are 30 women to a man…’ and they say women are less equal to men. It is men that should be shouting marginalization and counted as endangered specie na. Empress thank you for that statistic. Imagine!!!

    @Bella naija,i wonder why you didn’t do a post on Daisy Lewellyn’s death..Star of Blood Sweat and Heels.(Reality TV show). Or don’t people watch the show in Nigeria?
    But you have a post on Draya….Daisy fought cancer with dignity,humor,and grace,she was a beautiful soul.. A New York author,professional,style star and achieved a lot in her career..

      My jaw dropped when I read that she had died!!! It was hard to believe she was actually battling cancer while on the show. Reality tv is strange I tell you.
      She was such a sweet daddy’s girl…may her soul rip.

      And BN doing a piece on her death will be more about her life really…she was a young(ish) black woman who had reasonable achievements.

    Everybody must bash single parents even you too empress. So mothers that were married and the marriage didnt work out; but bore kids are sad too because some deciede to walk away from abusive marriages . Or the so called single girls who had thier babies rather that get rid of it too are worse off. Did any single mum ask you or any one for money , so why all the bashing on single mothers . Thier life thier perogative. For the record am not a single mum , my cousin is and she was just unlucky with the wrong guy. Beautiful , strong , hardworking and other note worthy virtues are a few of her endless qualities . Does that give me or any one a reason to judge her or others? no.
    So some single girls are not unhappy too for one reason othe other . In fact must a woman be unhappy because of a man.
    Pls concentrate on your boutique cause your acting aint all that anyway. Even your boutique sef God help you , cause your dress sense no be for here at all.
    Bella Pls post .

    Why would a woman love to live her life as a single mother if all things were well in her relationship? Some are forced to live that way. Show me a happy child who loves to live life as a one parent family if all things were OK.

    The truth is that situations might have forced a woman to remain a single mum, but every child would really love to come from a stable home where love was evident.

    Hellllllo……she said BABY MAMAs NOT single mothers. I don’t think they are the same even if all estranged baby mamas are single parents.

    That is how they will be boasting upandan like they don’t secretly wish for a man that will love them.Tonto dikeh said worst things but when love arrest am,she gentle,come dey sing another song.Cos I still don’t understand how a grown up woman will say marriage is not on her mind.Just simply say u haven’t found your Mr X

      Marriage is not on my mind! I’m 36, can’t have children(premature ovarian failure at 17). I work just to take care of me and myself, my nieces and nephews and my parents. Im saving towards retirement. I’m comfortable. Travel around when I’m not working. Volunteer and keep myself busy most times. My dear marriage is not on my mind. It has nothing to do with finding mr right or mr left. My very close friend is 42, perfectly healthy, never being married, never had kids, never had the desire for either. So you see, a grown woman can say marriage is not on her mind. I’m just one example, there are many others like me.

    Who asked her. The funny thing about Africa is that the biggest ashawos and those who have had so many abortions are the ones who harp the most about single mothers. It called deflection and aint nobody fooled by that. The virgins are happily living their life and are at peace with the choices they made. The hoes are the most pressed. Look at me I am not like them need for validation because they are unhappy with what is in their own closet. Single mothers should pay her dust.

    Empress I ain’t judging, but I feel you shld be d last person giving advice on this issue.
    Can swear uv never had an abortion before, where you not once pregnant or smthn of dat nature. And I Neva heard you got married.
    Abeg ppl shld judge soffry soffry. I won’t judge single mothers bcos I know sum respectable ones that just got unlucky in love. And I’m not talkn of dos 1nce dat purposely wanted to trap a rich guy.
    Empress Biko, face ur job. Which is acting.

    Empress,I think it’s so unfair of you to say such about single mothers.I am pretty sure most of them didn’t plan to be that. Life you know, could be unfair sometimes.Who knows tomorrow?What if you become a single mother yourself tomorrow???#ThinkAboutThat

    I don’t think she’s bashing single mothers. I think what she meant was that most if not all wish they had a caring man by their side. I’m sure that most women who are single mothers didnot plan for it to happen that way but many are making the best out of the situation
    And please, this babymama trend is not good. Single ladies, zip up cos condoms and pills can fail

    How can they still feel sorry for themselves when already they understand the outcome of what they were delving in. No baby mama would ever tell you they don’t know the likely outcome of their coded sprees with these young and not-ready-to-get-married superstars.

    If empress was married and she has experiences of managing a man, a home and her carrier, then she can come to the public and talk about marriage, not when she doesn’t understand an inch of what commitment is all about.

    baby mamas are women who deliberately get pregnant to achieve a selfish reason. Single Mothers are women who happened to get pregnant due to naivety and circumstance. She was referring to baby mamas so quit bashing her . Don’t believe all that men say about women sleeping around….

    The actress, who has chosen not to get married yet….. BN really? After her failed relationship with Timaya, who else has asked her out? I don hear.


    April 18, 2016 at 3:09 pm

    So its now a crime to be a single parent? Everybody is talking Empress too is talking. Oh before I forget, it may interest you to know that Empress used to be a klept… Don’t know if she has stopped. Oloshi

    Mamza, you still have children through IVF . At least you have money to travel around, so i can safely assume that you are capable .
