Published

on

Grammy-winning Nigerian artiste, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy, faced disappointment at the 2023 BET Hip-Hop Awards, where he failed to secure any wins in his seven nominations.

The awards ceremony took place on October 3 at Atlanta’s Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center, with the broadcast airing on Tuesday, October 10. Burna Boy was outshined by American rapper Kendrick Lamar in several major categories.

Kendrick Lamar claimed victory in the categories of Hip Hop Artist of the Year, Lyricist of the Year, and Best Live Performer of the Year, leaving Burna Boy behind. Furthermore, Burna Boy missed out on the Hustler of the Year award, which was awarded to 50 Cent, and the Best Collaboration of the Year accolade, where his track ‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World’ was defeated by Lil Durk and J. Cole’s ‘All My Life.’

Burna Boy’s streak of bad luck persisted in the categories of Best Hip Hop Video for ‘Sittin’ On Top Of The World,’ which was won by Lil Uzi Vert’s ‘Just Wanna Rock,’ and Song of the Year, where he again lost to the same song.

In contrast, Kendrick Lamar emerged as the night’s big winner, securing four trophies.

He swept every category he was nominated in, including Hip Hop Artist of the Year, Lyricist of the Year, Best Live Performer, and Video Director of the Year, which he shared with Dave Free.

In the Best International Flow category, Ghanaian music sensation Black Sherif triumphed over artists from various countries, including South Africa’s late AKA and K.O, France’s Gazo and Ninho, the UK’s J Hus, Central Cee, and others.

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.
