Why Nicki Minaj’s mother is happy with her marriage?

Nicki Minaj’s mother is “very happy” that her daughter has married Kenneth ‘Zoo’ Petty.

The ‘Megatron’ hitmaker tied the knot with Kenneth on October 21 in a private ceremony, and now her mother Carol Maraj has said she’s “really excited” for the newlyweds, and can’t wait for them to host a bigger wedding soon.

She said:

 

“I’m very happy. She’d been saying she was going to do something small, and then do something big within the [next] year, so my only thing was that I just wanted her to get married. I’m really excited.”

And Carol says the couple are made for each other, as they both make one another “happy”.

When asked what she thinks makes Nicki and Kenneth the perfect match during an appearance on People Now, she added:

“I don’t really think about it, but I realise when I see them interact that they seem very happy to me.”

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed Nicki is planning a “huge second wedding”, following her private ceremony last month.

 

It was reported the 36-year-old rapper and her beau rushed their initial ceremony because their marriage license was due to expire at the end of October, and decided it would be better to complete their nuptials rather than reapply for a new license.

To make up for the quick marriage, the ‘Anaconda’ rapper is said to be planning to have another wedding in the future, complete with a “huge party” for all her guests.

Following her wedding, sources claimed Nicki was “very happy” with her “low-key” celebration.

An insider said:

 

“Nicki wanted to keep her wedding low-key. She’s become much more private over the last year, but she is very happy.”

Nicki confirmed she had married Kenneth, 41, on Instagram, when she posted a short video of bride and groom baseball caps, and Mr and Mrs mugs.

Why Nicki Minaj flew her pastor half way across the country to perform her marriage ceremony?

Nicki Minaj flew her pastor half way across the country to perform her marriage ceremony.

The ‘Superbass’ hitmaker tied the knot with Kenneth Petty earlier this week and flew her pastor, Lydia Woodson-Sloley, from Brooklyn to Los Angeles to make sure she’d conduct the nuptials, TMZ reports.

 

Nicki confirmed she had married Kenneth, 41, on Instagram this week, when she posted a short video of bride and groom baseball caps, and Mr and Mrs mugs.Captioning the clip with a bride and groom emoji, Nicki – who was born Onika Tanya Maraj – wrote: “Onika Tanya Maraj-Petty 10-21-19 (sic)”

The happy couple obtained their marriage license in July but have been waiting for their particular pastor to be free to officiate the ceremony – and Nicki revealed last week (17.10.19) that the pair could marry “in the next seven days”.

She said: “We’ve gotten our marriage license, but there’s a particular pastor who I want to officiate and so she was just made available as of today. She told me she’s available within the next week, so we could be married in the next seven days.”

In an August episode of her Queen Radio show, Nicki revealed the pair would be married in “about 80 days” after obtaining their marriage license.

She said at the time: “We still had to pick it up and I was traveling, by the time I came back, we had to renew it again. From that time, you have 90 days to get married. That was about a week ago, so now I have about 80 days. I have to work on my album and I have a lot to focus on that I don’t want to do the big wedding now. We’ll do the big wedding later.”

Will you wait till your wife calls you a 40 seconds man like…?

The recent buzz about the estranged and crashed marriage between a popular Nollywood celebrity in Nigeria known as Tonto Dikeh and her erstwhile hubby known as Olakunle Churchill swept across the length and breadth of the entire global world with Nigeria being the stage where the interview was granted.

 

This was accompanied by so many reactions and responses from within and outside the country with many fans on the social media platforms lending a voice to the way and manner such a domestic issue was handled.

 

She expressed her anger against the father of her child by calling his sexual performance in the other room as nothing but a disgrace to manhood. She called Olakunle Churchill “a 40 seconds man”

 

While some people were in support, some reserved their commentaries and others were against the show of disgrace that is unexpected from a woman who has gathered the respect of fans in the movies and entertainment industry called NOLLYWOOD.

 

In other to shade of digression from the concept of this article, the trending interview granted to Tonto Dikeh by a popular controversial journalist known as Daddy Freeze triggers many questions that center around many people being bothered about what it really takes to maintain a good relationship that will be a foundation for an expected marital bliss.

 

Hence,this trigger the need for a subtitle for this article which is:

 

HOW CAN I KEEP A GOOD RELATIONSHIP?

The existence of anyone can never be made possible without such a life being a product of one relationship or the other.

Relationship is simply the connection or connectivity we have with one another or a nexus between one subject matter or the other.

 

While some of us are naturally talented and gifted in championing lasting relationship and maintaining it, others are not in any way good in creating a good atmosphere whereby good relationship will stand and flourish.

 

This might be a function of one factor or the other that always has its root or routes in parental upbringing and societal influences that are extremely conservative and reserved having a myopic view that is against the promotion of any factor that could buttress attraction to others and people around.

 

Though,this is not an alibi for the exhibition of weaknesses as it pertains to the maintenance of good relationship.

 

What seems to be working out in grooming our wards in some years ago are longer necessary.The need to training our children in a conservative and reserved manner is no longer efficient and effective in the present age of human existence.

 

So, it is the duty and responsibility of anyone who understands how weak or how bad she is in maintaining good relationship to look for a way to learn what is necessary for maintaining a level playing ground in any relationship.

 

Some people are lone-rangers naturally, although it is not that lone-rangers or introverts are bad in being reserved. They are the species of human that desire and crave for good relationship more than the so called extroverts but it is just that their approach and view about their desire is wrapped up in shyness and childishness.

 

Relationship build marriage.

 

Relationship is the foundation and pillar of any marriage.

 

No marriage can survive without parties or partners involved having good and sound understanding of what is good relationship entail.

 

Why am I writing all these?

The foundation and the longevity expected for a lasting marriage prosper on the ability of the parties involved having an understanding of what is necessary to make their dream and aspiration of a lasting marriage to become successful which could be granted solely when such a marriage flourish on good relationship.

 

Cn we pull out the understanding of what relationship entails from the necessity of having a successful marriage?

 

The answer is NO!

 

Successful marriage flourish on good relationship.

 

With this, it is necessary for anyone who desire having a blissful marital life to understand what it takes to make a successful relationship.

 

In the course of any marriage, it is the relationship that has been kept between all the stakeholders that will make such a marriage to be successful. These sorts of relationship are tripartite.

 

They are:

 

1.Relationship with God.

2.Relationship between husband and wife.

3.Relationship with relatives and family members.

Will you wait till your wife call you a 40 seconds man like..?

 

It is quite funny that many couples put aside relationship with God and the relationship with  relatives and family members but they believe that they can stand on their own until challenges of marriage pushed them into divorce and all sorts of tantrums and hullabaloo that have been the order of the day on social media platforms.

 

If Tonto Dikeh and Olakunle Churchill have taken such a step in the course of their marriage or relationship, it could have been difficult for such a domestic issue between them to degenerates to to point of becoming available for public consumption.

 

No matter how, no couple should be handpicked, singled-out and apportion blame to when it comes to marital issues because marriage is driven by the society and the society also drives marriage.

 

Whenever a marriage crashes, it is the fault of the society and the parties involved. It should be noted that anyone who cannot keep and maintain a simple form of relationship should be sensitive to the fact that he or she might end up not having a successful marriage because the understanding and knowledge of what relationship entails must be learnt and applied properly before anyone will be able to cope with the demands of marriage.

 

To people who are blessed with the right understanding of what marriage entails, marriage is sweet and the sweetness of any marriage can be found and traced to the building and the maintenance of good relationship.

 

Good relationship entails:

1.Selflessness

2.Sacrifice

3.Understanding

4.Empathy

5.Love and kindness

6.Dedication

7.Passion

8.Commitment.

9.Giving

10.Self-respect

 

 

t and c 3
Will you wait till your wife call you a 40 seconds man like…?

 

Anyone that has a deep understanding of all the aforementioned can never be found wanting of struggling to have a blissful marital life.

 

Relationship is a responsibility and an investment that parties involved should be ready to make contributions which must be equally shared and the accomplishment of nay accompanied glory must be equally shared between parties involved.

 

So, anyone who fails to have understanding of the prerequisites necessities that will birth a successful marriage should stay off social media platforms ranting about the failure of their inefficiencies in having a blissful marriage.

 

The beauty of any marriage is not a function of how beautiful and classy your wedding day is.The beauty is resident in the outcome of the marriage in the process of time.

 

Those who glamorized their wedding day without the thought of investing in the success of their marriage through good relationship are beckoning to a journey of marital frustration that will soon end up in marital crash expected to become a source of online consumption.

 

Your weakness in maintaining a good relationship with the next person by your side might be a signal that you might have difficulties in having a good relationship with your spouse in the nearest future.

 

You might be confident that your partner is blindfolded in love right now but one secret about marriage is that it has a way of removing veils that has blindfolded your partner by the time the journey of marriage begins.

 

Your confidence is good and human but your assertion might ensnare you when you are married and yo will discover that love alone is not enough to build a successful marriage.

 

In conclusion, you can keep a lasting relationship when you become better person that is doing everything possible to become better in knowing what is necessary to keep a lasting relationship by ensuring that necessary knowledge and approaches are invested in making any form of relationship better.

 

Never wait and manage a marriage till it gets messy to the extent that your wife will call you an internet fraudster and a man that cannot last more than 40 minutes in bed.

Nigerians react as bride uses bulldozer as part of her convoy on wedding day (video)

In the bid to stand out and be unique on one’s big day, a lot of brides are beginning to think outside the box and going for unconventional and in this case, jaw-dropping choices as regards how they want their big day to be remembered.

Earlier on, Legit.ng reported the news of how a couple in Akwa Ibom state left jaws hanging after they decided to ride in a tipper truck to their wedding ceremony. Seeing the bride and groom make love happen right at the rear of a commercial truck got the attention of many.

In a similar story, yet another couple has left social media users wondering what is in the air that is probably influencing these weird choices. In the video currently trending on social media, a bride made the odd choice of using a bulldozer as her preferred choice to convey her to her wedding ceremony.

Sitting gracefully in the jaws of the construction machine, she waved majestically as onlookers stood by in shock and awe at the same time. What was even more interesting was the choice of vehicles in her convoy. Expensive fleet of cars followed her bulldozer behind, making it obvious her choice wasn’t for lack of a more fancier means of conveyance.

 

The video which has since gone viral, gather quite a number of reactions from Twitter users; most of whom thought it was a crazy and hilarious idea.

 

Interesting!
Still on unconventional wedding themes, Nigerian couple, Taofik and his woman who in preparation for their wedding, released their pre-wedding photos and its theme has a lot of people talking on social media. The couple who wanted to reflect their deep love for All Progressives Congress (APC), posed in APC coloured outfits and campaign posters for their pre-wedding shoot and everyone can agree that it is really unconventional.

DO YOU KNOW THAT HE IS YOUR SAVIOR?—(10 minutes read)

The 2nd of September 2018 being the first Sunday in the month of September happened to be tagged “COVENANT DAY OF MARITAL BREAKTHROUGH” in my Church. Due to many personal obligations that made me to have far away from Church this year, I made up my mind to avail myself the opportunity of attending the Second Service since I was a bit less busy since I am observing my annual leave.

IMG_20180902_223607

 

 

 

 

As preaching and homily was going on and towards the end of the sermon, he preached and prayed about marital breakthrough and he made a particular submission by quoting Ephesian 5 verse 22-33.He asserted that if every marital union can be laid on the foundation of what is chronicled in Ephesian 5 verse 22-33 by all the concerned parties in marriage especially husband and wife, the challenges facing the institution of marriage recently will not surface in any way at all.

 

Immediately, after making his submission known, I quickly opened my bible and checked what exactly the actual scripture was talking about.

 

While reading my mind struck a verse, though popular but the later part of this verse has not been really talked about by many Christians and preachers of the word of God.

 

It was at the point of this inspiration and this uncommon revelation that I decided to push this verse across so that it can also serve as a source of motivation and inspiration to couple in marriage.

 

Reading through Ephesians 5 verse 23:

“For the husband is the head of the wife, so also Christ is the head of the church; and He is the savior of the church”

 

In this verse, one could see two important comparison between the husband and Jesus Christ. This verse compares and made the husband to be the head of the wife as Jesus Christ is the head of this church. This comparison and similarities simply connotes:

 

1.Every husband must be respected and referenced by the wife as Jesus Christ is respected and referenced as the head of the church.

2.As Jesus Christ is the savior of the Church, every husband is also a savior to the wife.

 

These are the two revelations about the concept of marital union presented by God in this portion of the scripture aimed at given a solid foundation for every marriage needed for success in every home. Though, this has been silenced and lesser people are fond talking about it due to many anti-God concept that is quite available across the length and breadth of the world. The need for this portion of the scripture to become relevant and useful in building a successful marriage has been subjected and subdued by ideologies and philosophies that buttresses on woman emancipation and equality.

 

Due to misconception of this portion of the scripture and the desire for many people in the world to banish the thought about God from their sensitivity and consciousness, this portion of the scripture has little or no meaning to many people in the sense that the issue of submission from wife to husband has become a thing of the past.

 

Every woman desires equal stand in the home and this has made many homes to be thrown into confusion resulting in domestic violence and divorce that has been on increase in the recent times.

 

God’s intention for every home is that husband should love their wife while every wife should ensure that the husband is given the same respect and reference being given to Jesus Christ, although this does not make the husband to any wife to assume the post of Jesus Christ or a totalitarian type of leadership that is aimed in all ramification to subdue a woman basic right.

 

Being compared in terms of post simply connotes and demand a lifestyle that could be likened to the kind of lifestyle Jesus Christ lived during His earthly ministry.

 

This verse of the scripture simply placed and apportioned a responsibility on every husband to live a sacrificial and selfless lifestyle just as Jesus Christ lived his life for the salvation and redemption of the entire human race.

Husband should be the head and savior in the home simply connotes and demands a lot of responsibility to the wife and to the entire household.

 

Husband should be the head and savior to the wife in love and in deeds.

 

The responsibility of being the head to the wife should be carried out in love and the responsibility of being a savior to the wife should also be carried out in love because it was recorded in the scripture that it is the love that Jesus Christ have for the church that made Him to offer His life as a living sacrifice for the forgiveness of Sin committed by the entire human race through the first man and the first woman named Adam and Eve.

 

Any marital union that is based and functioned on this scriptural concept and foundation can never be found to have any issue no matter the length of days of the marriage.

 

Every marriage becomes successful and meaningful when the what is chronicled in the original manual of marriage originated and authored by God is adhered to and followed strictly without any one of the content being subjected and subdued to man’s philosophies the way it is now in the world we are today.

 

The foundation of marriage should have its root and route in God and it should be executed in accordance to what is authored by God. None of the content should be seeing and viewed as irrelevant and unimportant.

 

Once the wife understands her role and responsibility in marriage and she is ready to carry it out accordingly and the husband is also willing to answer to the role and responsibility of being the head and savior to the wife, many homes and families across the length and breadth of the world will have peace and the issue of divorce and separation between husband and wife will fizzle out and dwindled completely.

 

Until, God is allowed to build foundation of marriage through the scripture, successful marriage will be a wishful thinking and a mirage.

 

Give God a chance in your quest to become married and you will be ensured that you will be successfully married.
