    Nothing do anybody. I think it’s a bit weird though but I guess the mindset of the women is what really matters. Hypothetically speaking, as a girl with sharp tendencies and a creative imagination, if ever I considered polygamy as an option, I would have resigned to fate to be part of a freak show. The only problem I have is that it’s really not freaky enough for me sha. I mean if I’m going to share, why can’t we share at the same time. Africans be halfassing everything from 1914 ? Hey but hypothetically speaking of course ?

      So because she’s not yet, her right to be only choice is out the window? Or do you hear yourself?

    • Lucinda

      October 30, 2016 at 12:52 am

      Right to be only choice? Never heard of that before. Is that a UN Charter or something?

    WHERE IS STEP-MOTHER, AISHA BUHARI aka madam frying akara for votes? If its to pimp and flaunt her own daughters she will be first in line. Indeed, charity begins in the home.
