Popular Nigerian singer, Chinedu Okoli, aka Flavour N’abania, has expressed discontentment over the way some Nigerian women mislead men with waist trainers and edited pictures on social media. He noted this during a recent Instagram Live session with his fans, saying that the events of the past few months had helped him to organized himself. He said, “This has been a time of sober reflection. I have been vulnerable and I have decided to be true to myself. I have been a victim of circumstance. Most times, they (women) are not what you expect when you meet them in real life. I am focused now. If I visit your (social media) page and see a lot of edited pictures, I would move out. The coronavirus and everything else that have happened this year have opened my eyes. The same way youths decided to protest against bad governance was the same way I looked at my life. I have been womanless for a month. I am fully awake. I must have a meeting and see you (any woman I would be involved with) very well. I may glance through your pictures but that won’t mean anything until I see you physically. I have changed my hairstyle. I am ready now. Do you know what it means for me to be womanless for a whole month? I have been feeding and giving my body the required nutrients, so any woman I come in contact with now must be worth it.” The singer also denied the reports of him secretly being married. He added, “Did I show you any wife? You guys are giving me (high) blood pressure. What is in a woman is not yet clear to me. Some tell me, ‘I thought you are married’. To get married is a beautiful thing. However, I don’t want to get married now and still be looking outside. I belong to the wild world and I cannot be caged. I have used the opportunity[…]
