''Marriage is not by force'' - Adaeze Yobo shares message to women in abusive marriages

As written by the mum of two on her IG page this morning. But just before that, I have this to say, guys. From me Laila to you.

Marriage is not evil. The kind of picture being painted about marriage these days due to the very disturbing stories recently happening is really a graphic one and lots of young ladies are right now scared of getting married. Some people are even ruling out marriage from their books.

Please my people, marriage is still a beautiful thing. But you MUST do it right to succeed in it. Right from choosing your partner on the very first day you set your eyes on him and you 'fall' in love TO choosing that beautiful dress you will wear on your wedding day. You must get it right!!

Women can be very happy and fulfilled in marriages. There are faithful, non-violent husbands in Nigeria. Happy marriages exist in Nigeria, there are women who are very happily married. Marriage is still a thing to long for.

HOWEVER, if you are currently in an abusive marriage, please don't kill yourself trying to save face or praying it must work by thunder by force. LEAVE that marriage now. Don't even think too much about it. Just let it go. Just move on. There are better days ahead for you and your kids, if you have any. You must first be alive to enjoy those better days. Say NO to domestic violence! These violence stories break my heart. Jeez!!!

Earlier this year, a man named Akinnifesi Olumide Olubunmi, was reportedly beaten to death in Nigeria by a mob for being gay. Olubunmi’s death hit a nerve with Nwozuzu, and he made a Youtube video in response, called “Justice for All Nigerians”.

When Tochi came out to his family, they struggled to believe him because they didn’t deem him a

Guys, meet Damilola Adejonwo, the most fierce gay Nigerian man in London (photos)

Damilola Adejonwo's eyebrows are always on fleek! He is also a proud Nigerian gay man living in London.

Tired of being stereotyped and not having his voice heard online, he and his three friends Tochi Nwozuzu, Kevin Kwame, and Junior Joye turned to YouTube to share their experiences as black gay men living in London.

Dami and his friends say in the UK, being gay and black in London is largely safe, and encourage black gay men across the country to come out.

Of the moment he came out of the closet to his Nigerian parents and family, Dami said:
“I knew the consequences. I have a “bad relationship” with my family since I came out, but I hope it will gets better with time.''
Dami also blames their reaction on what he called a common assumption among some African communities that homosexuality is a white, Western phenomenom. See more of his fierce pics after the cut. Plus pics of him with no make-up.
