      Dear Lara, how do you do it? Do you put a paper bag over his head and pretend he’s someone else?

    #BeautyPersonified# She’s so beautiful

    But errmmm, how does she manage to sleep/kiss (with) Adams O., with closed eyes or just in a dimly lit room… Ermmmm #JustAsking#. LOL

    Who says money isn’t power… Money can make a woman lower her standards.
    And we all know this is true, except maybe, it comes with an inclusion.

      @i no send
      Don’t worry. Give it time. When belly starts protruding, make up can’t hold anymore, wrinkles start appearing. Then you’ll hear her start talking about inner beauty.

    She is pretty but I don’t get why someone will say she is the finest of all the first ladies. she is obviously the youngest but finest? For me, nah. white skin does not equal extreme beauty to me.

    Na wa o. People will not let the man rest, so a man who has no looks must marry same. Can’t he have someone different from himself. Life will continue to shock people who look down on others. Girls who don’t have looks are marrying the handsome men. Sit down there, better take charge of your own life before pride makes you fall.

      I laughed out loud hard at this comment. Not necessarily because I disagree. I just found it really funny. Lool

    July 1, 2016 at 5:57 pm

    It’s funny how ppl ask how she does it? Would oshiomole marry a woman who looks like him? Why don’t men date ugly girls? Why don’t women date poor guys? It’s the same thing. He’s happy she makes him look good and powerful as a trophy wife, and she’s happy he can give her whatever she wants.

    Is her name iara or lara?
    Everywhere I see her name it’s like the use lower case “L” to write her name and it looks like “Iara” instead of “Lara”.

    Oshiomole must be depressed reading all of ya comments. Y’all meanies!! His biological children no go wan gree say na their papi be dat any more. Wetin conchi dey cos for people. Person wey no go fit cross ya domot go come yab you because you go carry wetin pass ya hand. I think the comments on what can happen when someone has broken your heart is true. I know person wey one fine bros do yeye. The girl market that time dey hot no be joke. E hot sotey no be girlfriend most dey ask for. Na marriage. Two guys even offer am ride if she just gree say she go marry them. Na precious commodity she be. Even guys been dey fear to talk to am. Na im this fine boy razzle am she come gree. Na so she dey try to act out wifey role, the bobo dey hump ooogly girls wey razz pass wetin you never see left and right. The boy give the babe horror story wey bella need to pay me to write about. Needless to say, bobo come dump babe one day. Chase am comot in front of im paddies. Scales comot from babe eyes vite vite. She tell me say she no dey follow people wey fine sotay everybody wan taste. She say she dey find solid man wey no go follow woman. The day the babe show me her husband I wan fall for ground. If the man know the kind senior boys wey clean from head to toe wey razzle this babe, im go shake for im shoes. But guess what? Babe tell me say sometimes e hard because the bobo no dey operate at her level of seeing road. However, if she say jump, the bros go say how high. Also, she say even if babe come siddon for im lap, she no go worry becuase the bros dey so thankful say she gree. She say she dey sleep without thinking about who call and who no call. She no dey even bother to check im cell phone. She no fear lie lie. Dem don born 3 pikin. All of them fine. the babe womb wash the man genes well well. Just saying make una leave our Quasimodo governor and im bella.

    Baba Oshi depressed ke. That guy can’t be bothered about common people making comments. It is the case of a good deal here. You have what I want or don’t have. I have what you want or don’t have so why is the common man stressed. If you stress yourself forever, Oshi baba will continue to move on with his life. Better face your masters and applications. Oshi’s hardwork fetched him something. He was probably not contributing on social network while facing GCSE.

    Nigerian women wonder why their marriages are not working. You are part of the problem not the solution. None of you have met this man. Have spoken to him or have grasped the possible intellect he brings to the table . Yes. He’s obviously not the tall handsome stranger. But neither are a lot of husbands out there. But he’s not exactly physically disabled or challenged yet the comments show why some of yall end up desperately scrambling for the last looser left in the club when you have let great opportunity pass you by to be with decent men. We kenyans know from uni that your so called swagga naija men will put their di&k anywhere they here is new meat. They are desperately always dipping in and out of whatever new hole-iday they can escape to. And you tolerate them so you can delude yourself with self is and instagram that are in direct contrast to your reality. But you see a woman go for a man who had power and status but because he is not what society has deemed to be ideal you assume all he had to offer is money and she is lowering her standard. What if she has raised her love standard and finally chosen to be with a man who cherishes and respects the word marriage. Who isn’t seen in church one day and then in the bed of his colleague the next. I have tired of the pathetic swagga naija men chasing me around London even when they found out I am now married. Some even whilst theit pregnant wives lie lonely at home. You ladies need to check yourself and review what the word love and marriage really means. Some of you live in Disney world. And end up in the real world too late and regretting. Love and marriage is about compatibility of an emotional and intellectual kind that surpasses silly teenage heartbeats. What lasts what matters what persists through years is a man’s admiration and genuine gratitude and appreciation for you. And maybe this man gives her exactly that. But your front laces are stuck on too tight for you to be able to process that aspect. A sincere growing up session is required amongst my West African women.
