After interacting with Chimamanda Adichie, I understood feminism better – Funnybone

Funnybone

Nigerian comedian, Funnybone has narrated his experience discussing feminism with Chimamanda Adichie when they met recently. Taken to Instagram, Funnybone spoke of how his perception about the concept of feminism changed when she explained to him what it truly stands for.

Funnybone wrote:

i had one of the most interesting and thought provoking conversations of my life yesterday. such a humble and warm soul, her humility is out of this world. we argued , laughed and i asked questions, but with ease she addressed every question and i was left speechless. how can one person be loaded with so much knowledge, i totally understandd the concept of FEMINISM now more than ever before. 
The concept of feminism is not only reaching out to men who stereotype woman, but also to woman who accept the stereotype and uphold it. gender should not be a limitation and if the woman is capable then she should do the job regardless. 

After interacting with Chimamanda Adichie, I understood feminism better - Funnybone
i asked and she also cleared the air on the hilary clinton twitter bio issh, i must say that i agree with her totally. hilary didnt rise to the top because she was a wife or mother. she did so first because she was qualified to do the Job. 
She also pointed out that there are EXTREMISTS in every human endeavour, be it religous or even political. so yes there are some extremist feminist too. those who totally misunderstand the concept of feminism and what it represents. 
Never Judge a book by its cover they say. i naturally thought i was meeting some strong genderlised woman who wudnt even give you space to share your point of view, but she was welcoming and willing to put her facts straight to you calmly. her global exposure didnt defeat her origin. she speaks fluent igbo and understands the tenets of the igbo culture too.

Fulani Herdsmen who killed Catholic priests dance in Church choir robes (video)

A media personality, Farooq Kperogi has taken to Facebook where he shared a video of alleged Fulani herdsmen dancing and jubilating while wearing church choir robes after killing two catholic priests and 17 parishioners in Benue state on April 24th.

He wrote:

''This is a video of Fulfulde- and Hausa-speaking men, presumably cattle herders, who recently murdered 19 Benue people in their church, took over their choir instruments and church garments, and recorded themselves dancing derisorily over their murderous exploit. In this age of pervasive digital manipulation, I usually withhold credulity and judgment over videographic and photographic evidence, but this video seems to me credible. What I can't ascertain is if the gun-toting, deliriously gyrating, Fulfulde- and Hausa-speaking men in this video are the murderers of the Catholic priests and 17 parishioners in the Mbalom community of Benue on April 24, 2018. If they are (and my hunch tells me...

“Suitors now prefer our maids to our daughters for marriage” – Nigerian Parents

It is every parent's joy to see their children mature from childhood and get taken away in marriage in order to grow and establish their own homes, however in recent times, it appears that kind of joy is being stolen from them by their own maids.

Some Nigerian Parents have chosen to vent via social media over the fact that their daughters are being rejected by suitors while their maids are being chosen in their stead

According to the post, the maids end up being well trained especially in chores, welfare of the home,mannerism while their own daughters are languishing in search of a man for marriage

It is quite an irony because these same maids are trained by the mothers who chose to train them instead of training their own kids to be groomed for the same qualities the suitors search for in a wife
