Valentine’s Day: What does that mean for the singletons?

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I have to dedicate this one to the singletons! Let’s talk “the single life”. There are some people who cannot do without being in a relationship whilst there are others who prefer the single life. The thing is if you can’t be happy during the single periods of your life, chances are it will cause problems in the future in regard to relationships, eg. Low self-worth, clinginess or the ability to think for yourself.

I know Valentine’s Day is upon us and it’s now more than ever that society makes the singletons feel like outsiders, but my advice to you is enjoy the single life while you can! Some people try to avoid the “single status” as though it’s a disease but I’d say wear it, rock it and own it like it’s an award you’ve won. It can be the most glorious time if you embrace it.

Being single gives you the chance to find yourself (especially after a break up). You’ll discover that you’re a different person to how you were before you went into the last relationship so you’ll have to discover yourself again. Find out what you do and don’t like…

This period will also give you a chance to explore what you want to do with your life whilst creating your own rules without having to think about what your partner will say. You’ll be free to take chances, explore other countries for months on end. Try your hand in this industry or that industry, the possibilities are endless and the freedom is like none other.

Regain your health! I came across one of the funniest but most spot on quotes once which read “break-ups produce the best body builders”. Most times after a break up, men and women head straight to the gym, the men say “I’m going to bulk up and make her wish she didn’t leave me” the women say, “I’m going to work out in the gym and make him cry for this Kim Kardashian body”. This is all well and good but I’d say get your health back for YOU! You may have picked up a few unhealthy habits whilst in the relationship so there’d be no better time than now to work on your mind, body and soul.

After saying all this you should know that I’m not saying relationships are bad, relationships and marriages alike (the right ones) are great but whilst you’re single it would be wise to invest in yourself. So this Valentine’s Day, love yourself (even buy yourself a gift) and embrace the single life!

An African City: Another Returnee

Showing Feb 1 | Episode 1 | 

Nana Yaa happily welcomes another returnee, her cousin Adoma. Immediately, it is evident that Nana Yaa and Adoma have two different views on the “returnee experience.” Nana Yaa and her circle of friends are happy to embrace the western lifestyle, while Adoma is adamant about the local/grassroots experience. This stark difference leads to the questions of: “What is African? Or, What is African “Enough”? For each of the five main characters, the journey to find the answers to these questions is revealed. For Sade, it’s whether or not her married boyfriend will “eat her out” as he does not consider “eating her out” an African “activity.” For Ngozi, it’s whether or not she is too westernized to attract an African man, which leads to a theatrical prayer session with her Pastor. For Makena, it’s whether or not to wear the lawyer wig in the courtroom – a wig she considers uncomfortably foreign. For Zainab, it’s about whether or not to handle an employee’s family’s funeral the western way (“can’t I just send flowers?”) or the Ghanaian way (“Do I really have to drive twenty hours to Tumu?”).


An African City: Sweating the Small Stuff

Showing Feb 8 | Episode 2 | Sweating the Small Stuff

Returnees are often accused of “sweating the small stuff” when living in an emerging market such as Ghana. For Nana Yaa, she considers her continued jealousy over her ex Segun and his fiancé Kukua as small and petty, further compounded by her current boyfriend’s small penis (which prompts the girls to see a “sex doctor”). For Sade, its small stuff while dating: why does her date consider foreplay an act that solely involves the sucking of her left breast while her right breast goes completely ignored? For Zainab, it’s small stuff with her business: clients late on payments, bribes at the ministries, poor exchange rates etc. For Makena, its small stuff with her boyfriend: why does he always hide the caller ID on his cell phone? For Ngozi, it’s small stuff while driving: should she sit in the passenger seat or the back seat when escorted by her driver? Each woman must navigate her way through the small stuff while staying true to their needs, wants and values.
