Being A Man In Nigeria: Perceptions and Realities Part 1

It is common knowledge that more and more women are getting economically empowered and most men are feeling victimised especially in Nigeria.

This is my first part of a series from a landmark research made by Voices4Change, an NGO in Nigeria. I crave your feedback, as we try to find answers to beliefs around feminism and masculinity stereotypes with a view to reducing violence and intimidation of women in enterprises.

Check this out!

Why won't you travel in a bus from Lagos to Abuja, just because the driver of that bus happens to be a woman?

A friend of mine argues that he will disembark at the knowledge of the gender of the driver of such a vehicle?

I also know that ladies like me, love it when our hair stylist is a man and also we relish dishes made by chefs! So what's the big deal about a woman long distance driver? Lolz

TWO THINGS I WANT FROM YOU is your answer and then you get a FREE eBook!

My question is "what sort of job or business would a man engage in, and you will think it is demeaning for him?"

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear.
