Netizens Kick As Actor Maduagwu Says Divorce Should Be Celebrated



Controversial Nollywood actor, Uche Maduagwu has got many tongues waging on social media following his statement on celebrating divorce.

Maduagwu in an Instagram post on Friday, said divorce celebrations should be normalised because not many dare to walk away from bad marriages.

The actor added that divorce proves one’s bravery and achieving freedom from bad unions is a feat worthy of celebration.

“We need to normalize celebrating divorce and stop making it. Look like a funeral. Divorce is not a sign of failure, it’s a celebration of bravery and freedom,” he began.

“People who don’t celebrate their divorce anniversaries are being ungrateful to God because so many people are still in bad and unhappy.

“Marriages that they are unable to walk out of, so if you are lucky enough to walk out of a Marriage that does not bring out the best in you, please celebrate. It takes a special grace from God to achieve that freedom.”

His post has since begun to garner massive reactions from netizens.

#Damilolaogunsi commented, “When do we realize that except for physical violence and continuous adultery, two humans can put aside their pride and work on their marriages?

“The effect a messy divorce or any divorce has on the psyche of the children is monumental. It’s a bit understandable if one parent is deceased, but a tearing of the fabric of marriage hurts everyone. I think we need to normalize working on things first.”

#Natashablessingrasaq wrote, “Is okay to leave an abusive and unhappy marriage, but there’s no need for celebration.”

#funmilayo also wrote, “Why would we celebrate divorce? Have you forgotten what God said about divorce? Western education just wants to condemn us all and I reject it.”

#Iam_bmodel shared his thoughts, “If you people start celebrating it like that, nobody goes remain for marriage oh. If you make it a trend to celebrate it once marriage crashes, that means people won’t even try to make their marriage work. Once they feel small discomfort, they go quiet. Unless it’s an abusive situation or marriage, then flee, run.”

#Fametouch also wrote, “We should normalise and celebrate failing exams too, dropping out of school, failed government policies? Ozwor.”

Love Knows No Age: Breaking Down the Taboo of Younger Men Dating Older Women in Nigeria



As I explore Nigeria’s rich cultural heritage, I’m struck by the harmful biases that exist.

One example is the stigma against older women dating younger men – a double standard that restricts women’s choices and reinforces harmful gender stereotypes.

In Nigeria, a woman’s value is often tied to her age, with younger women being prized for their beauty and fertility.

what about older women who desire love and companionship? Why are they shamed for their relationships, forced to hide their love due to societal pressure?

The double standard is clear. Older men marrying younger women is widely accepted, even celebrated, while older women in relationships with younger men face judgment and discrimination.

This issue affects men too, who are trapped by societal norms, forced to conform to traditional gender roles and expectations.

It’s time to challenge these outdated norms and embrace love in all its forms by promoting gender equality and inclusivity.

Let’s look to inspiring examples of older women who have defied societal norms and found love with younger men. Women like Gabrielle Union, who has spoken publicly about her relationship with her husband, Dwyane, who is several years younger than her or women like Viola Davis, who has embraced her love for her husband, Julius Tennon, despite their significant age difference.

These women are trailblazers, paving the way for a new generation of Nigerians who refuse to be bound by societal norms.

They show us that love knows no age, no gender, and no boundaries. It’s time for us to follow their lead and create a society that truly celebrates love in all its forms.

Research has shown that relationships with significant age gaps can be just as fulfilling and long-lasting as those with smaller age gaps. In fact, some studies suggest that older women in relationships with younger men may experience increased happiness and satisfaction due to the younger partner’s energy and enthusiasm.

By letting go of societal constraints and embracing our true desires, we can experience increased self-esteem, confidence, and overall life satisfaction.

we can create a society where everyone can love freely, without fear of judgment or rejection.
