The holidays you never took, the movies you never watched together, the visits you kept planning to but never made.It reminds you.
''Of your own mortality. You wonder if there’s a row call and what your number is on the list. Death doesn’t warn you. One moment you’re laughing with a loved one, your head thrown back, with wanton abandon, the next your eyes are bloodshot from weeping for a loss so deep no one can understand.
I’ll never understand, never come to terms with your death. You were many things to me; Friend. Sister. Business partner. Supporter. Colleague. My life was better because you were in it. Sleep well my beautiful ,adorable ,amazing Ansa. Till we meet again to part no more”

Below is the abridged version of her interview with Effects culled from DAILY SUN
What is your success tip as a career woman?
Hard work, focus and balance. To succeed, women must unleash the qualities and talents within them and stretch them beyond limitations to achieve career goals and objectives. A good way to do this is to choose the right profession, adapt to work environment but never change who you are. You are to also work hard and persevere. Most importantly, people should balance work and life in a well-planned way that suits you. It appears like a tall order but achievable.
What inspired that aspect of yours that mentors women?
I believe in giving back to the society. There is no amount of teaching that will be enough. Most women will be unfortunate not to hit the glass ceiling. Since some of us are privileged to have achieved something so far, the best thing to do is to impact younger women to do better and rise above their challenges.
Did your upbringing play a role in shaping your life as an extraordinary motivational speaker?
My upbringing helped a lot. My parents were good Christians and the fact that I was raised religiously served as a spiritual guide to my growing up. As I grew older and began to understand the world better, I realized that I needed to make a difference; beginning with myself, then others. My father believed that what a man can do, a woman can do also; so I had a voice early in life. I love seeing women working hard, breaking barriers and crossing boundaries in the so-called “man’s world”. It really hurts seeing a woman being dependent when she can easily fend for herself. So, I tell whoever is willing to listen, “you can do it”
Riyike’s story is a stranger-than-fiction type which sent me, a self-confessed seen-it-all, reeling with indignation at how stupid some people would stoop to keep a love they are obsessed with. According to Riyike, when she met Ben five years ago, he was on the rebound.
His girlfriend of three years suddenly threw him over for a man she confessed she was in love with. “It was obvious that Ben was still hurting from the humiliation of rejection,” said Riyike.
“I had gone to the accounting firm ‘he worked with for my one-year attachment programme from the polytechnic I attended and he was more or less my direct boss. He was happy to show me the ropes and we went to the office canteen together often.
“He talked a lot about his ex, how much he loved her, how much time and money he’d lavished on her; and how she had no guts to tell him about her new find until someone sent him a text anonymously, that she was virtually sleeping in his ‘house! Armed with an address from the text, be laid siege at the man’s house and it didn’t take time for both of them to walk in together.
She didn’t come out all the four hours he waited for her to do so. When she visited the next day and he confronted her, she was really angry that ‘he’d been ‘spying’ on her. Now that ‘he’d found out, what did he intend to do? Beat her up? Have her arrested? She then flounced off in a huff. He tried to win her back, ‘but she said she was happy with her new love.
“When you see someone long enough, they sort of grow on you and it didn’t take time for both of us to become an item. We went to parties together and visited each other once in a while. Inevitably, we started a relationship and he confessed it was over with Kadijat, his ex. I eventually moved in with him against my mother’s wish.
My dad passed away a few years ago, otherwise I wouldn’t have dared spend the night with any man, let alone move in with him. Then, out of the blues, Kadijat came back. She just walked in one evening, gave me a casual glance and demanded to speak with Ben in private. Later, Ben came to tell me she wanted somewhere to stay for a while as she’d just been kicked out by her Mr. Wonderful.
He’d told her I was now-living with him, but that she could sleep on the couch until she found her feet. I was livid. I wanted to pack my bag there and then, but I loved Ben and if I left, Kadijat would move in. So, 1 shrugged after my protests fell on deaf ears. She moved in and treated me as the odd one out.
“A couple of days later, Kadijat complained of being disturbed by rats and mosquitoes in the living room – and Ben suggested, she could sleep with us in the bed! 1 was really stunned. In my head I knew it wasn’t a good idea, but I would do ‘ anything to ‘keep Ben away from Kadijat, so 1 agreed, Ben slept on the outside of the bed with me in the middle, his arm around me. One night, as if in a trance, 1 realised
Ben’s hand had reached furtively towards Kadfjat’s face and he was actually stroking her cheek! What on earth did he think he was doing? Yet I let him carry on instead of kicking him out of the bed. I could have left too. But I had read about this sort of thing in some smutty books and magazines and had discussed it with friends. But to think I would ever find myself involved in a three-in-a-bed-romp! What would
my mum think of this type of behaviour? The next morning, I felt so ashamed, but Ben was happier than I’d ever seen him – he was actually humming and whistling. He’d obviously-had too much of a good thing. ‘How are you?’ he wanted to know. But I told him I wasn’t myself. ‘Let’s give what happened last night a try,’ he begged. That way, we can all stay together,’ The mild threat was in his words – take it or leave. So I stayed.
“We soon got into the routine of the three of us sleeping together but I gradually realised I was the odd one out. Most evenings, Ben and Kadijat would sit on the couch; sipping stout. I never touched alcohol, so 1 would sit in a chair until Ben would urge me to have an early night if I felt like it. They would continue boozing, laughing and whispering long into the night and of course having it off on the couch. It then dawned on me that if I had any shred of dignity left, 1 would ‘have to leave.
“Thank goodness my one-year attachment was over, I packed everything I had and moved back to the campus. Ben begged me to leave a few things, but I told him I could always visit with whatever I’d need but never went back to that sinful flat.
He begged and pleaded for me to come back, even promised to kick out Kadijat. But the respect I had for him had gone. You can’t love anyone, and bring home an ex who once humiliated you, for regular romps on the same bed. I couldn’t tell anyone how low I sank when I didn’t even realize the madness that came over me. One thing I’m sure of is that I’ll never sink that low again.”
PARIS, AUGUST 18, 2016: (DGW) - A certain Nollywood actress allegedly attempted suicide after she was after a shocking discovery that her lover was also into a deep affair with her close friend and colleague in the Nigerian fantasy world, Nigeriafilms.com has reported.
Ruth Eze, according to sources, disclosed exclusively to nigeriafilms.com that on visiting her fiancee in Abuja , made a shocking discovery that he was also into a deep affair with her close friend and colleague which left a scar of distress on her fragile heart.
“Ruth couldn’t stand the pain because she had thought that her lover had forgiven her after she was slammed with lesbianism scandal. To make matters worse, they had been making plans to go pay her bride price this coming Christmas and her family members have approved the marriage. The relationship is over 4 years old.
“After she saw her friend in her fiance’s arms, Ruth was stuck in her hotel room for over 24 hours. She was not picking her calls. It was later discovered that she had bought overdose of sleeping pills in attempt to take her life but for the timely intervention of another actress who had accompanied her to Abuja.
That her friend is suspected to have poisoned the mind of Ruth’s husband-to-be to abandon her. She is husband-snatcher, that is what is reigning in Nollywood now. They snatch and brainwash people’s lovers, even husbands” the source squealed.
She also added that Ruth, has been under close observation since the incidence but she has been wetting her pillows with midnight tears.
Recall that Ruth Eze had earlier debunked the reports that she was into ladies: “I am not a lesbian and I can never be a lesbian. My mother is a devout Christian and she is an evangelist. I can never be a lesbian. I never said that; all I said in the interview was that I love Genny very much and I still love her till date. I don’t care about what anybody says. I don’t judge anyone whether they are a lesbian or not. It is between you and God because the bible says we should not judge.” -
When a person gets married, some may think a sure way to have a partner for live but these days, your spouse's eyes can wander. Once eyes wander, body parts may follow.
Society has taught us to expect men to cheat but what about when the woman is the one cheating? It usually takes a lot for a woman to cheat outside her marriage but it is a possibility.
Women will be able to hide it very well but everything has tell-signs that will make the man catch unto her cheating. Here are four sings she is enjoying another man:
1. She no longer wants to have sex with you
If she used to be a she machine but these days she doesn't send, it could be that she is getting her satisfaction elsewhere. It could also be that she is not in the mood but if you can't remember the last time you had sex with her, it might be time to get a clue.
2. She doesn't mind your annoying habits so much
