Oyibo Woman (Swizz Blogger) Praises Her Nigerian Husband Using Igbo Language

Nwanyi Ocha, this is a word steeped in the language of the Eastern people of Nigeria. It literally means white woman. And just like its meaning, this name rightly belongs to a foreign woman who hails from Switzerland and a blogger. 

The Swiss lady who has been married to her Nigerian spouse for more than ten years has birthed three adorable children from the relationship. She has also assimilated herself into the culture, fashion, tradition, mannerisms and language spoken in Isuofia, Anambra state where her husband hails from.
It is not a rare sight for her to share videos and photos of herself, husband and children dressed in the native Eastern way. She listens and dances to Nigerian musicians, eats peppersoup, fufu and ogbono, and even does artworks that embody the culture from that part of the world.

Microsoft Co-Founder Paul Allen Is Dead. Aged 65

It’s easy to think of Microsoft and immediately think of Bill Gates. While Gates led Microsoft to where it stands today, co-founder Paul Allen played an early instrumental role in creating the software giant. Originally named “Micro-soft,” Gates and Allen founded their software company in 1976 after meeting as students at Lakeside School in Seattle. It was this unique friendship at the right time and the right place that ultimately changed the world of computing.

Gates and Allen had been buddies in school and were part of the Lakeside Programmers Group that traded computer programs for free time on the school’s computers. Funded by the Lakeside Mothers’ Club, the school installed a computer terminal in 1968, and it was the students that figured out how to use it before the teachers.

RARE CULTURE: In Some Niger Delta States, Women Marry Women

Do women marry women in Nigeria or not? Some people have demanded. And an answer or a semblance of an answer would be provided. Although it may not be a common practice in this dispensation, it sure happens -and for this research- in the far southern town of Okrika in modern-day River state. One must not lose sight of the culture of the Okrika people from many years ago as regards marriage. Marriage for the south southern Nigerians (at least back in the days) is not complete without children. Hence, marriage was to the people a union with the primary aim of procreating. This background is vital to understand the context of woman-woman marriages in Nigeria in this modern era.

Several people might find it very hard to believe but once upon a time and up till now, women pay other women’s dowries and sometimes take them under

He is 100 years old and has spent 18 years in jail after being found guilty of organising a murder.
