Veteran actor, Norbert Young has recently expressed his distaste for Nigeria’s movie industry, saying there’s no Nollywood but ‘Igbowood.

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.

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

I have carefully studied history and realize how tyrannical leaders who had no accountability ruled and how badly almost all of them ended. A lot of people think being accountable means being ruled by someone else but what they fail to realize is that we are not created as human beings to live independent of control. It is so easy to drift into error when you are the island of your own knowledge and there is no one that can call you to order. One critical principle I have learnt from one of my mentors is that fact that there was never a time you were wrong that you were never sure that you were right. I have seen too many men who rule their women without tapping into the wonderful treasure God has placed around them.
