About 10 days ago, I received a message via Instagram from Timileyin Akinkahunsi, a journalist with Punch newspaper. She indicated that she wanted to feature me on the opinion column of Punch newspaper. She said she saw one of my comments on an Instagram page called Diary of a Naija Girl (DANG). She was right because DANG is a page I like and I am quite active on there.
Even though she seemed true, I still had to do some due diligence before I agreed to participate. I searched for her name and asked for the link to past responders and she sent it. I also sought my husband’s opinion, infact I firstly jokingly accused him that he sent Timileyin to me because we previously had a discussion about a similar subject matter. He laughed and said he doesn’t know the Timileyin from Punch, so we both agreed that I participate. It was just surprising and coincidental that my husband and I had previously discussed same at home, now I was been asked to give an opinion about it on a newspaper.
So here we are today, my face and write up is on a page in today’s Punch newspaper (Saturday April 27, 2019). Even though this may not be a big deal to some people but it is a huge deal to me as I think this is my debut newspaper feature.
Thank you once again Timileyin for finding me worthy, I appreciate it. Shout out to my younger brother, Opeyemi who sent me these pictures from Punch newspaper.
So if you are in Nigeria, please get a copy of today’s Punch so you can see my beautiful face 😀 and read my opinion. You can also read it online via the below link, though the pictures aren’t online yet as I was told it would be added on Monday:
So let me ask the poll questions on here too, I would love to hear from you too.
“Would you be angry if someone of the opposite sex called your spouse “Dear”?
Kindly give examples and reasons for your answers.
Explanation: What is your view about people referring to your husband/wife by pet names like dear?
Would you read meanings to such if you see it in your spouse’s text messages?
In your opinion, what are some of the pet names you won’t want to hear other people call your spouse?”
