Social media users react
“This is one of the reasons why infidelity is increasing in marriages. Our older women that should be helping us curb this act is encouraging it but this aunty is beautiful sha.”
“What a deep revelation. You shouldn't have spoken about your ex in this interview.. You were double dating, you had a boyfriend and Kabiyesi was accompanying you to his place. That's not something to be proud of.”
"Beautiful woman in and out. But She said Elegushi had nothing when she met him but Elegushi is a Prince. So she saw the potential that he could be king one day. Since we already know that all men are onisina, we won't be surprised if he has a male child with someone outside. Sebi they won't just come home ni? Gbogbo wa la ma wa alright.”
“I love everything about this woman she is beautiful and classy, everything she said is the truth, ladies this days don't want to hustle with men they want ready made and is affecting them big time, God will help them oh.”
“You said well OLORI. But the last part on, no lady is ready to suffer with a guy...What of we that started with them from scratch and still yet they left after some changes? The only prayer is God should give us our own partner.”
“Subhanallah! Madam, with all due respect you are wrong in your judgement about Men lust for fornication and that a man who has never fornicated is yet to be born. The Universe is verse and even Nigeria is verse with diverse.”
