      Nothing is well said. People are different. Nothing wrong in sharing good news. Not everything has to be coded or done secretly. It’s okay for things to be celebrated publicly, as long as social media is not the only place you express your love. Then go on there to fight too.
      There’s balance to all these things.

    Adesua and BankyW just proved to us that celebrities can actually keep their relationships and all other things away from the public if they really want to.

      Theirs is a rare case. Them bring in s movie together really help. They managed to keep it a secret because they were hiding in plain sight. If someone saw them together there wouldn’t be any suspicion seeing as they where costars in a movie

    In a country like Nigeria where you have no idea who wants you to fail or succeed, its best to keep things under wraps. It will be interesting to see how many groomsmen Banky has, he’s been in so many weddings, and seems to be loved by all.

      “In a country like Nigeria where you have no idea who wants you to fail or succeed, its best to keep things under wraps.” I’m Cameroonian living in Canada, but may I say that’s an irrational remark? Anywhere you are in the world, you have no idea on who wants you to fail or succeed! Smh. A lot of you need to be more practical/logical as opposed to being ignorant.

      @Shandi… I’ll tell you what’s ignorant ….responding to a comment that has nothing to do with you. Don’t tell a Nigerian how to speak on Nigerian matters. Stay in your lane, or better yet your country. Ms Cameroon

      @SMH keep shaking your head there…there’s nothing ignorant about my comment. Move along.

      Vidavi, I’m Nigerian and I live in Nigeria, You know deep in your heart that what you have typed does not make any sense. You also know that Shandi is right about that being a global thing. But carry on, if assuming that every problem is copyrighted by Nigeria makes you sleep, keep assuming. Just don’t come and be making it look like all Nigerians are not wise like you.

    • Vidavi

      May 5, 2017 at 4:29 am

      You, you just had to speak sha!!! I am Nigerian, and made a statement about my country. I’m not now going to go and say the whole world lowun lowun, when I can’t speak to that. Nothing ignorant about my statement, you too run along.

    Please live in your truth. If you want to share your precious moments, please share. Some people are expressive, some are not. I don’t believe being private is trendy. It’s something that comes naturally to some people based on their personalities. Our personalities differ, let people exist in their space without crucifixion. God knows why he created us the way we are.

    I agree with her, but she’s fast becoming a female Freeze. She has and shares an opinion about everything.

    Wetin go break go break, wetin go stand, go stand!

    In my own opinion, it’s not about keeping marriage private or open. Any marriage or relationship with a bad foundation will definitely collapse, except if properly fixed and managed. The most important factor is the genuine love and maturity of the couple. Yes, there’s a limit to what you feed the public about your marriage.

    Both private and open relationships has its advantage and disadvantages

    The question is have they succeeded in keeping it a secret… With banky telling us how he met and toasted his susu… They would now knows and r watching with hawk eyes….. Did agbani keep her relationship and marriage a secret, yes she did

    • Trina

      May 4, 2017 at 2:48 pm

      Maybe because Agbani’s boo is on his 3rd marriage and they both could do without the drama of the exes?

    Things to keep private: love life, income & next move! Don’t give people the privilege of knowing everything about your relationship. My dear, I’ve realized after so many years that a private life is a happy life! People ruin beautiful things. You don’t need to convince anyone that you’re happy. Nothing good ever comes from too many people knowing your business.

    Mrs Betty Irabor, I don’t think Nigerian celebrities want to stop sharing their private lives on Social Media.

    If they wanted to, they would have stopped sharing a long time ago.

    They are adults, they know what they are doing.

    Mrs Betty Irabor, you give good advice, but not everybody will listen to and consider your good advice.

    When I loved, my heart practically burst with the overflowing happiness and I didn’t care who was watching. I sang it from the rooftops. I let people see my love too, my commitment to him too. I was happy and I couldn’t hold it in.

    Well… the relationship has failed now. I guess if it had been secret since, no one would have seen me bleed. But they saw my joy when it was high and now even though I am not crying on social media, my silence is evidence that I am bleeding.

    What I am saying is, there is no perfect way to love. We love the way we are made to love not the way society thinks we should love. I may scream my next love from rooftops or I may keep it inside me. Whichever one I do, is not a function of what anybody thinks i should do, it will be a function of how I feel. I might scream it, if I feel like I “have been given a second chance at love” (apologies to Adele) or I might keep it inside if I feel like savoring it and letting no one know that I am in a relationship for the second time.

      Funny how I’m going through the same thing, I didn’t exactly shout, but I wasn’t quiet either. I wish I didn’t have to bleed in private though. But I guess these things happen.

    • Asa

      May 4, 2017 at 12:56 pm

      Hugs from me to you sister. Our true and lasting loves will come and we won’t be quiet of we don’t want to be.

    Vivaldi you are bush illiterate and with no manners. how uncouth for your likes to always come back with telling foreign visitors to this blog they should stay in their lain. Every time a non Nigeria chimes in on a discussion when idiots like you can’t argue or debate sensibly then your best come back is “you are not Nigerian and you are not invited so shut up and get out. And you allow such comments. You are not better than any other African as much as most of you all high mighty may think and look down on other Africans. Let’s not start laying down your global reputation so please come off your high horse. Bring that conceited attitude down ten notches okay, it’s not that deep

    Because of this in 2018 I a Ghanaian will start a lifestyle blog where all my fellow Africans are welcome to comment without being made to feel like an outsider. Bet.
