      Well, at least she will be ure diya. but why now? Babe fine na, kilode? Abi Hausa people label you karuwa because you don get one boyfriend somewhere? Even if you are not an optimal commodity due to illness or any other limitation, you should still be entitled to someone your age. I wish you the best me dear. Treat yourself and enjoy. He wont do things that excite you so you will have to entertain yourself. Dont grow old to catch up with his age. Instead make him grow young to meet you where you are. That will actually prolong life

      They need to get their stories straight then. That’s an important point to mention which they left out. Thank you for sharing.

      Really sad to see what BN has become. Anything to generate clicks. Relevant information like this being left out just to drive hate due to cultural differences. Shame on you BN.

      Thanks for the 411. BN just needs to get it together. Like I was beginning to wonder how old is the lady. I mean, it doesn’t really matter but heck haven’t we seeing this ishy play out before?? Good luck to them.

      Exactly. Unnecessary sensational headline, the “57 year old” so not necessary

      thank you for this very important clarity. As it is, we were almost losing our minds to say another child bride in the making! BN will you not try and report factual things vs hyped words. Please give us all the facts as a good story should and a better journalist will do to biko, regardless of her past marital status, it is key to give us all the facts na!

      @what an ass why even bother to reveal her age? You can sense the malice in them refusing to tell her age as if she’s commiting a heinous crime by marrying a 57 year old. And did you actually say 43? Wow; she looks 26 to me honestly. Congratulations to them.

      She’s in her early 40s so not so bad even though there’s like 15years difference here. At least shes matured

    Who can see the look on the bride’s face? Like she knows she’s heading into a life of bondage.
    Her face in that second picture with the forced grin is hilarious.

    Wow. BN are back to censoring comments?

    • Adults united

      October 27, 2016 at 1:04 am

      A sensible person has taken over comment moderation, for that we must be grateful. You were cute at first, like watching a child throw a tantrum. The adult thing to do is yo let the child rant on and on while you watch on amused, then you step in, be the grown up and tighten the reins. You’be just been handled boo. The adults have taken over. BN, i for one would pay a subscription fee to visit your site if you can continue sensoring comments. Keep waiting for your Swedish prince. The way you detest black men, newsflash, Nordic men don’t find black women attractive too. The joke is on you. I await your acidic response. I”ve got toddlers at home, so I am experienced with children lashing out.

      Yaaaahhh. Look at this guy feeling all grown up on the internet.

    October 27, 2016 at 3:30 am

    @Adults United, thank you for your comment. I have been amazed by BN’s inaction in censoring and even blacklisting some commenters on this blog.

    Please, do NOT tar children and toddlers (in fact, human beings generally) with the satanic brush with which @A Real (we all know it is Fake) Nigerian and @hadiza (and even @Natu who foolishly has been following their lead with some of her comments) are tarred. Children and toddlers are BLESSINGS. They bring and give joy, happiness, delight and have a purity and innocence of spirit from God.

    That in no way describes the spawn of satan you rebuked.

    Like I said, thank you for your comment. May your children continue all their days and all your life to be Godly, honourable, fruitful, successful, to bring joy, happiness, peace, prosperity and honour to you and to their father and their nation, continent and race. May God, indeed so bless all of us who choose to follow Him, uphold His values and believe His Word concerning us and concerning our land, may He so bless all of our children for His glory and our own joy unspeakable and full of glory in JESUS’ Name, Amen.

    I was wondering why there was so much emphasis on the grooms age without telling us the brides’.

  12. o

    October 27, 2016 at 8:00 am

    BN if you felt the man’s age was important enough to be posted, you should have also posted the woman’s. So tey you put his DOB and place of birth….

      Like seriously! Stating the man’s age and intentionally leaving out the woman’s age. BN is this what you have turned to for clicks and comments? so people can bury the poor lady alive.

    Not Islamic culture btt Hausa culture. Islam does not impose on anybody, you are free to marry whosoever you like bt not a man as old to b ur father. I can’t say I pity d lady b’cos she chose it herself. @lease I think she is happy abt it….

    October 27, 2016 at 11:06 am

    Bellanaija I’m HIGHLY DISAPPOINTED In this! I do NOT visit any other news “blogs” like Linda or Stella because of this same sensationalist news reporting that I was always proud to say y’all were way above! Thank you for showing me I was wrong. Shame on you! P.S: GUYS THE BRIDE IS IN HER 40s! !

    Mohammadu was married monagomously each time. He previously never gave away a daughter into a polygamous marriage. This is an exception because she was previously married and the age gap is normal and acceptable within every society.
