Back in the days, unwanted pregnancy was something that made people cringe with fear of humiliation. It was a situation that made the affected young ladies want to run away from home or change location as they couldn’t bear the constant taunts and scorn that came with their pregnancy; but in this present time, not much thought is given to that situation anymore. It’s been wildly accepted as a norm in the society now.
And like the saying goes, ‘Variety is the spice of life’, we all have
various tastes for what we want in life and this applies to whom we
would like to have as a partner or whom we just want to get down with.
In a recent TV interview, Burna Boy was asked how he likes his girls
‘Calm like Chidinma or Wild like Cynthia Morgan’, and the ‘Like To
Party’ singer said ‘I think I’ll go with Cynthia Morgan’ before
quickly adding ‘I mean, I would have them both’. Of course, first
impressions last longer so we all know he really meant the first
So now we all know Burna’s taste, it would be wise to stay clear off
his path if you are a Chidinma look-alike and get closer to him if you
are wild and sassy like Cynthia Morgan.
MTN Project Fame’s host and Nollywood actor, Joseph Benjamin in an interview with Genevieve magazine and Tolu Falode, opened up on his two kids (a boy aged 11 and a girl aged 13) his personal life and also balancing fatherhood, bachelorhood and Nollywood.
Here are excerpts from the chat in Genevieve’s Magazine below…

It’s taught me responsibility and so I would say being a father has been a blessing for me because I have been able to draw strength from that and put it into my work. It has helped me balance my life in a sense.
On balancing work with fatherhood: I try
to balance it. It can be difficult at times but I try in the midst of
all that to balance it. I speak to them a lot.
On the most interesting part of being a
parent: Being responsible for lives. Knowing that these lives are your
responsibility; whatever comes out of this is on you. That has me in
check and it’s lovely.
On how fatherhood has changed him: I have a different view on life. I’ve come to understand what our parents went through and I can relate with them directly. I do understand. And it’s made me more accountable.
And business-wise, it has helped me because you realize every penny counts as a father and a parent because you know that you have a responsibility to these people. So whatever business decisions you are
making, you understand that. You are also economically conscious of the fact that they are your first priority.
On searching for a partner: I am right now so focused on work and
giving a good life to my children. I am not searching. I am good where
