SHOWING ON TV
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.

Lagos, 1st January 2018 – During a record-breaking Nollywood box-office reign as one of the producers of The Wedding Party 2: Destination Dubai, EbonyLife Films announces the cinema debut of its new movie, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel (RHH), on February 9. Set in Lagos and London, The Royal Hibiscus Hotel tells the story of a passionate Nigerian chef, ‘Ope’, following her dream of opening an African restaurant in London. Frustrated by her lack of progress, she returns to Nigeria and discovers that going home can bring pleasant surprises.
Successfully screened at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), RHH was identified as a ‘Hidden Gem’ by the panel, and was the only Nigerian movie and one of just three African titles featured at the festival. The cast includes Zainab Balogun, Kenneth Okolie, Deyemi Okanlawon, Kemi ‘Lala’ Akindoju and O.C. Ukeje, with veteran actors Rachel Oniga, Jide Kosoko, Olu Jacobs and Joke Silva. It was directed by Ishaya Bako.
Mo Abudu, Executive Producer, is thrilled about RHH being shown to audiences in Nigeria. "The Royal Hibiscus Hotel has been a special project – it is a beautiful story of love, sprinkled with delightful comedic moments. We hope it resonates with the young and young-at-heart, and reminds them of what it’s like to fall in love. We are proud of this film and anticipate it being enjoyed in cinemas across the country,” she said.
An additional source of enjoyment for moviegoers will be the RHH soundtrack. It features a score by award-winning musician Cobhams Asuquo and songs by leading Nigerian artistes, including Romeo and Juliet by Johnny Drille, Chemistry by Falz and Simi, Skintight by Mr. Eazi and Tonight, Ocean and Radio by Nonso Amadi.
This Valentine’s season is gearing up to be a memorable one, thanks to the imminent release of The Royal Hibiscus Hotel in movie theatres. Its feel-good plot and touching scenes are set to melt hearts and inspire audiences to chase their dreams and never give up on love.-Ends- The Royal Hibiscus Hotel will be released in cinemas on 9th February 2018, following an exclusive premiere in Lagos, Nigeria on February 4th.
