I Did Not Mean To Be Offensive – Italian journalist Marika Fruscio Pleads With Nigerians After Post Knocking Osimhen

Published

on

Italian journalist Marika Fruscio, in a social media post on Wednesday, has pleaded with Nigerians over her statement knocking Nigerian-born footballer Victor Osimhen.

The Super Eagles striker had deleted Napoli-related posts following a now-deleted TikTok video shared by the club mocking his failed penalty kick against Bologna on Sunday.

Osimhen’s agent, Roberto Calenda, not long after, released a statement expressing the footballer’s displeasure about the video, adding that he is considering legal action.

“What happened today [Tuesday] on Napoli’s official profile on the TikTok platform is not acceptable.

“A video mocking Victor was first made public and then, but now belatedly, deleted.

“A serious fact that causes very serious damage to the player and adds to the treatment that the boy is suffering in the last period between media trials and fake news.

“We reserve the right to take legal action and any useful initiative to protect Victor.”

Reacting to Osimhen’s actions, she said, “You’re a champion, but it takes humility. What’s the use of deleting the photos of the team that worshipped and supported you?

“What’s the point of flirting like this?? Even legal action for a sarcastic video? An intelligent man would have laughed at it.

“Be the professional. Head down and work. It’s our fault anyway that we make these players almost gods. Just the shirt, just the shirt.”

Not long after her post, her social media page was flooded with Nigerians slamming the journalist for her statement about Osimhen, prompting the Italian journalist to release another Instagram post saying she did not mean to be offensive.

“Dear beloved people of Nigeria, I am a showgirl who also works in a TV program related to football.

“In my comment and post, I did in reference to the Nigerian football player Victor Osimhen. I didn’t want to be offensive, but it was my only point of view and had to be understood as a personal suggestion.

“I love Africa, and I have always appreciated their talents and the beautiful values in terms of friendship and positivity they have.

“Now days are so full of bad news, so let’s spread love and peace. Hugs to you all,” Fruscio wrote on Thursday.

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

Published

on

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.
