What Do Women Want?

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.

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.

What-women-Want1

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.

What-women-Want

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.

EbonyLife TV celebrates with staff, channel talent, friends and family as the channel turns 3

EbonyLife TV, Africa’s first Global Black entertainment and lifestyle network, turned 3 on Friday, July 1st, 2016 with an in-house staff party held at the EbonyLife TV HQ in Ilupeju, Lagos. The evening celebrated the dynamic team of people who have helped to create over 3000 hours of premium quality homegrown programming since the 2013 launch.

Some notable faces at the event include Mrs Victoria Akintunde (Mo Abudu’s mother); other special guests – Nkiru Anumudu, Ruth Osime, Pat Faniran, Ndidi Atuegwu, Marian Omatsone, Ebun Adeniyi, Debbie Ogene, Bola Ayeni, Ijeoma Nwogwugwu amongst many. Temidayo Abudu, a producer at EbonyLife TV, organized the intimate affair.

Other guests caught having a good time include producers and presenters, most notably, Toke Makiwa, Zainab Balogun, Tosin Odunfa, Arit Okpo and Bolanle Olukanni. Executive Directors, Lanre Olusola and Uzo Nwochekwa were also spotted.

It was very much an in-house affair as Mo Abudu wanted to celebrate and say thank the entire EbonyLife Family without whom none of this would be possible. According to her, “I would like to take this opportunity to thank our viewers, sponsors, advertisers, partners, the EbonyLife TV team and most importantly I give God all glory for the favour. To anyone whom has ever watched, streamed, recorded, shared, tweeted about any of our shows. Please keep watching EbonyLife TV (Channel 165 on DSTV)”.

In 2016, EbonyLife TV expanded its operations to Lagos where all daily and entertainment shows are now produced. Calabar still remains home to EbonyLife TV largely as the drama production hub. Fans of great TV entertainment have reasons to celebrate EbonyLife TV this July. Viewers can enjoy a new bouquet of shows including The Governor, On The Real, Dere, Sons of the Caliphate, FIFTY the Series, Men’s Corner, The Boot and MOMENTZ; these additions are part of EbonyLife TV’s way of thanking viewers for welcoming them into their homes and making them part of their lives.
