Any man that can give an answer to this question that would satisfy just 50% of women deserves a Nobel Peace Prize. That man is one step closer to discovering world peace and it’s really as serious as that.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRG2f1HIyTk&list=PLB1Uvqrn0ORGwyndBwdi1vo0MJM0W40ny
Women always wonder why men never seem to know what they want but for men, it’s like playing football while the goalposts keep moving. When we come close to answering the question women all over the world seem to retreat to this secret group chat on WhatsApp and agree to disagree with the brotherhood of men.
There was a time when we thought women just wanted a man who cared for them was affectionate and showered them with gifts, any gift would do, we thought. A Shoe was a shoe just let it be fine. These days there are shoes and then there is Louboutin. Make no mistake about it, they are not the same thing.
Sure there are general rules and principles that women claim men must obey and abide by. At least that’s what they claim. Ask any married man, he will tell you it’s a lie. Your girl can tell you her problems, you take the initiative and attempt to solve it and your girl is mad at you. Truth is she never wanted you to solve it. She just wanted you to listen. That’s what you’ll think till the next time you listen and sit on your ass.
For heaven sakes, if Albert Einstein got divorced and couldn’t E=mc2 his way to answer what a woman would want, can women cut us some slack.
If you don’t believe me you can undertake further studies by catching Men’s Corner at 23:00 CAT on EbonyLife TV DStv Channel 165.
We meet the psychotic Mr Angel and his accomplice. Kay takes Eli out to their old school to share something personal with him. Benjamin Abaddon agrees to be interviewed by a notoriously tough TV journalist, but who is in control? Meanwhile Eli and Maya head out to Kay’s birthday party. Ziv uses the opportunity to his advantage.

Trailer now available for viewing ahead of cinema release in 202031 October 2019, Lagos, Nigeria – EbonyLife Films today announced that its latest film, Òlòtūré, has been selected for an official screening at the world-famous Carthage Film Festival. Created in 1966, to bring African and Arab filmmakers together and to recognise their work, the festival takes place annually in the historic city of Tunis in Tunisia. Many of Africa’s most respected filmmakers, such as Sembene Ousmane, ‘the father of African cinema’, and Med Hondo, got their initial exposure at Carthage. They went on to win prizes at Cannes, Berlin, Moscow and other leading international film festivals, paving the way for later generations of filmmakers. Set in Nigeria, Òlòtūré is the story of a young, naïve Nigerian journalist who goes undercover to expose the shady underworld of human trafficking. Unused to this brutal environment, crawling with ruthless traders and pimps, Òlòtūré finds warmth and friendship with Blessing, Linda and Beauty, the prostitutes she lives with. However, she gets drawn into their lifestyle and finds it difficult to cope. In her quest to uncover the truth, this rookie reporter pays the ultimate price - one that takes her to the verge of no return. The premiere screening of Òlòtūré took place at Le 4ème Art Cinema, Avenue de Paris, Tunis on Thursday 31st October at 6:00 pm. In attendance were director Kenneth Gyang, executive producer Mo Abudu and lead cast, including Sharon Ooja, Omoni Oboli and Omowunmi Dada. The trailer will be available from today, 1st November 2019, as the film begins its festival run. Cinema release is scheduled for the end of the first quarter 2020. Be the first to see the trailer here. Ends - Notes for editors: The director, Kenneth Gyang is an AFS Fellow at University of Southern California’s School of Cinematic Arts, a graduate of the prestigious EAVE European Producers Workshop and co-founder of the film production company Cinema Kpatakpata. His first film, Confusion Na Wa (2013), won Best Film and Best Nigerian Film at the 2013 African Movie Academy Awards, as well the Jury Prize at the 2014 Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles. The Lost Café (2017), his second feature, was the Audience Prize winner at the Africa International Film Festival in Nigeria and Golden Palm winner at the 2018 Mexico International Film Festival. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5763427/ Executive producer, Mo Abudu launched EbonyLife TV, Africa’s first global black entertainment and lifestyle network in 2013. In her quest to change global perception about Africa, Mo created EbonyLife Films. She is the Executive Producer of Fifty, the no.1 Nigerian film of 2015; The Wedding Party (2016), the most successful Nollywood film ever at the Nigerian box office; The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai (2017), the highest-grossing Nollywood film of all time; and Chief Daddy (2018), the third-highest grossing Nigerian film. https://www.imdb.com/name/nm5801801/ Òlòtūré is a viscerally depicted, sobering thriller that highlights a major international crisis. Human trafficking is a global problem, but it's a local one too. Trafficking networks are flourishing across Africa through the exploitation of hundreds of thousands of migrants. According to the UN, more than 800,000 people are trafficked across international borders annually — often duped with promises of a better life overseas, then sold into forced labour, domestic servitude or sexual slavery.
Funke Akindele-Bello and Akin Lewis head all-star castLagos, 7 October 2019 – EbonyLife Films, producer of Fifty, The Wedding Party movies and Chief Daddy has kicked off the promotional campaign for its latest feature film, the social-media-driven political comedy, Your Excellency, with the official cinema poster.

The poster’s images depict the hilarious antics of the characters, as they vie for social media significance. The tagline, ‘What’s politics without a party?’, hints at the irresistible music and dancing that makes the movie perfect for the holiday season. Your Excellency tells the story of a bumbling, billionaire businessman and failed presidential candidate, who becomes a credible contender – all through the power of social media. As the drama unfolds, it seems possible that even a perpetual loser, written off by everyone, can pose a serious challenge for the presidency. Directed by Nollywood’s queen of comedy, Funke Akindele-Bello, the movie is funny and touching in equal measure, as it shows the importance love and loyalty play in facing life’s challenges. Executive Producer Mo Abudu is already excited about the film. “Every Christmas, we aim to deliver a feel-good, family movie for our viewers, and Your Excellency is no exception. This time, we have Nigeria’s funniest woman as both lead actor and first-time director, and she delivers on both counts. The audience is in for a treat,” she said. Funke Akindele-Bello takes the compliments in her stride. “Your Excellency already had a great script by Yinka Ogun, a wonderful cast and experienced producers, so all I had to do was provide a guiding hand and make sure we keep the audience entertained from beginning to end.” -Ends- Your Excellency is in cinemas from 13 December 2019 across Nigeria.
