    Beyonce and Jay Z trademarking the name Rumi as if it’s an American name!
    Rumi is actually a Cross River people’s name.
    Drama queen of the coast with her ugly husband.
    Sir Carter indeed, Nigerian celebrities will soon follow lead.

    Well BN, this is lazy journalism. You could at least try and tell us the meaning of the names by simply searching on Google. Oh I forgot, you need traffic. ?

    Well according to one of those naming sites, Sir is another form of Syrus or Cyrus in another language, can’t remember what it is called. So it isn’t pronounced Sir, it is pronounced as Sai (I think). Anyway, Rumi sounds nice.

    All these is still speculations. Few days ago they claimed the babies are named Bea and Shawn. Now this. Until the couple announce it…it is all speculations/rumours.

    Anyway, may God bless all those who are expecting fruit of the womb and protect all those who are about to deliver.

    Not surprised he cheated on Bey – for men like Jay, there are so many Beys and prettier-than-Beys around them. He’s been with her for over 10yrs, she’s lost her charm for him. What we have mostly in marriages today is lustful love, which is fallible. Yes, you can love your spouse lustfully. But such love can fade with time – what happens when say, your spouse comes down with a terminal disease? If all the love in a marriage was based on looks and emotion? People like Bey/Kim Kadashian have to do a lot to keep their spouses in love with them. All forms of surgeries, lifts, injections etc to remain physically appealing cos the love is majorly physical/sexual. But you can’t win in the physical – how do you outdo all them thots with Dr.90210 butts and boobs? What we need more than the romantic love is Unconditional love – that lifegiving love- which does not dwell on the physical.. It is only this love, this gift of God, that will make a man overlook a naked Rihanna and go home to his faithful wife. It is possible, but only by his grace.

    Think of it -It is difficult for the average man to be faithful talkless of Jay. Men like him are surrounded by dirty lyrics, booze, clubs, women, swear words, porn, loud music, more women. Why does it seem most musicians end up with such stories of infidelity or babymama? From Fela down to Davido. It is a struggle for them to be faithful. To overcome hollywood seduction, one will need the grace of God. But if they turn to God, It could cost everything. They might have to give up that entire life. , but the good news is, they will gain eternal life. And finally, they will be free to choose to be faithful to their wives.

    There is a very unpopular saying ” Name your child what he/she wouldn’t love to be called, when he/she is old enough it will be changed. These celebrities should know better. A few of them have changed their birth names.

    Actually, the name Rumi in this particular context was picked because the child was named after 13th Century Persian poet by the name Rumi. The name Rumi does not only exist in Cross River
