Indian Films have come a long way from the way it was in the 80s. Back in those days and despite the subtitles and the language barrier people in Nigeria still loved Indian movies.
Who for example remembers the romantic movie about plastic surgery, love and parental disapproval - YEH VAADA RAHA released in 1982, (duration - 2hrs)? I remember NTA used to play this particular movie during public holidays and i never got tired of it .

Veteran actor, Norbert Young has recently expressed his distaste for Nigeria’s movie industry, saying there’s no Nollywood but ‘Igbowood. In a recent interview with THENETNG he said "it should be called Igbowood just like you have Yorubawood and Hausawood. It is not Nollywood if Nollywood represents Nigeria". We TOTALLY agree with him.
Lovely beat from the Mavin Crew, loving the beats and all. Weldone Dr Sid. The song celebrates women and womanhood. I particularly love the background of the Album Art cover, look closely and see all the names written there. Nice.
How available are you as a father to your children and what level of emotional support do you give to your wife? The greatest challenge in our world today is the absence of real fathers. The fathers are no longer at home and with no father figure around the children are left at the mercy of the media and society. I know someone is trying to justify his absence with ‘I make my family comfortable’ but what you may not know is that your children prefer the gift of your presence to your presents. When was the last time you attended open day or PTA meeting? When was the last time you spent at least 2 uninterrupted hours with your children or wife without a TV/BB/IPAD/???.......interruption? . A lot of our men are even home as if they are not there because how you can sit at home as the lion of the tribe of your home where nobody can play with you beats me. If all your children is a school fee payer then you are not a father you are their benefactor; if all your wife sees is someone who sleeps with her then you are a sperm donor and not a true father. Fatherhood is a lot of responsibility and it is not something you can do by Bluetooth or in absential.

Former first lady, Turai Yar’Adua, has vowed a repeat of a thrashing she gave her successor, Patience Jonathan, over a long-standing land dispute, ruled in Mrs. Yar’Adua’s favour, Thursday, assuring the first lady that any appeal against the decision will fail. An Abuja High Court on Thursday invalidated a purported revocation order on the plot measuring about 1.84 hectares allocated to the former first lady’s organization, Women and Youth Empowerment Foundation, WAYEF, by the Abuja Administration. The court, presided by Peter Affen, said the claim by the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Minister, Bala Mohammed, that the land was revoked on an overriding public interest was not supported by any of evidence before the court, ordering that the initial offer to Mrs. Yar’Adua’s organization remains valid.

BAD FINANCIAL DECISIONS’
I have seen too many men mess up their family finance as a result of bad financial decisions and there are so many of those decisions men make. I often tell men that manhood or headship in the home isn’t the same as financial intelligence. Once you are not intelligent financially you can’t fake it or faith it. Women have proven in so many quarters to be better money managers and investors than men and this is because they relate and intermeddle with information better than men. Women are the ones who go around a lot and they hear latest gists about everything in most cases. I am not saying you should trust financial decisions into the hands of your wife if she is a spend thrift. What I am saying is that you need to carry her along in your financial decisions because her instinct might just be enough to save you because men take reckless risks sometimes which usually spell doom for the family. I have seen men reject their spouse’s financial counsel only to go and listen to a friend or a single girl out there who doesn’t even care about you
