What made your man leave?’ – Ali Baba gives relationship advise. The comedian took to his Facebook page yesterday to dish
out relationship advice to women.
READ the advice below..
Sometime back, in March, I was advising a babe on how to
make a man stay. Some comments posted in reply to my
status were that men are only controlled by their third legs,
money, yansh, boobs, beauty and ego. I tried to highlight a
very serious point that babes were missing.
And that is, everyman wants better. We do not want to feel
the one we let go was better.
Not too long ago, I read some wild and wide criticism that
greeted what Stella Damasus wrote about keeping a man.
To some, wrong as they were, Stella had no business
telling anyone how to keep a man. I believe she does. I
actually think she knows more than she revealed.
Growing up in Ojo Cantonment, my Dad and I were walking
back from his friend from a Soldier in the Education Corp of
the Nigerian Army, from Gongola state who had been made
a Major. Just as we took a turn, from the officers’ mess, a
naked mad man was running towards us from the opposite
direction, shouting Mad Man… Mad man… To my surprise,
My Dad, who was a military man, told us to run for cover.
So he dragged me behind a kerosine tank, pushed me to the
ground and kept looking to see what the mad man was
running from. Meanwhile, Some two Fulani men who used
to come into the barracks regularly to read palms of
anyone who yielded their hands to them, had been walking
behind us, before we took cover. They kept walking.
I nearly laughed when I saw them make a Uturn, and took
off after the mad man that had run pass us, it now looked
like they were chasing the mad man that was shouting
On the heels of the Fulani palm readers was another mad
man, brandishing a UTC cutlass . Not Machete. Cutlass.
The type used in felling trees. That type that reminded one
of Prince Nico Nbaga’s bell bottom trousers back then. He
was swinging the weapon of death as he pursued… It
became obvious to us from where we were crouched that
the madman had no one in mind as a target. He was after
anyone he could lay his eyes on. Because, soon as the
Fulani men, vanished at the end of the Block, he gave up on
that chase and followed one Man selling Festac 77
sleeveless Adire. Mr Adire seller was actually laughing at
the way the Fulani men took to their heels. So, this time I
had to laugh when I saw how the amusement on his face
changed into fright. He took off and jumped across the
gutter by Palmy Bus stop. He continued running even after
the machete carrying mad man hand found new targets.
Sorry I digressed. Hope you are still with me.
My Dad later told me a proverb in URHOBO, “AVUE ODIERO,
NE EKI VHENRHEE!” Which means you do not need to tell a
deaf man that there is chaos and uncontrollable commotion
in the market. He can see. That’s all he needs.
Back to Stella DAMASUs’ write up. We are not all perfect.
That said, when a Musician writes a love song, do you stop
listening to the love song or letting the lyrics connect to
your relationship because the singer has divorced 8 times
or has not been able to hold a relationship longer than 3
months? I don’t think so. I think STELLA did well. If you like
go call police.
Back to the HASHTAG I talked about earlier, #
WhatMadeYourGuyLeaveYou.Many ladies missed the point
as they always often do. They were talking about how men
are polygamous in nature, Cheats, irresponsible, not ready
for commitment, gigolos, lack ambition, lack self control,
think with their third legs… BLA BLA BLA.

I need to mention at this time, that i was at that time
preparing to talk to young ladies who were looking to settle
down and finding the right guy. And to tell you the truth, a
lot of the ladies missed the whole point by a mile or 2. They
need to read STELLA DAMASUS’ piece.
It’s easy for a lady to say, a guy was not serious that’s
why the relationship broke up. Or to say, he used her and
dumped her for another lady. Fine. That is what they think
made the guy leave. But to be honest, was that all there
was to it?
I would like you to know that, that is not entirely the truth.
A guy would always weigh his options. He would want to
know if he is getting the best. Or if he can see the best
Before a lot of ladies eat me raw, let me explain. I do agree
that it’s a two way street, but I can only speak for the WAY
I HAVE BEEN ON. I AM AS STRAIGHT AS THEY COME. I
KNOW AND HAVE KNOWN ONLY WOMEN.
Have you as a babe listed some CORE 10 things that you
think you have that will make a guy not want to leave you?
Do you also have some other unique things that a guy will
not get anywhere else? Ok, lets agree he likes your breast,
your bum bum and your soft body. What has any of those
got to do with respect, the tone with which you talk to him,
showing you are happy to be the one he chose, supporting
his dreams… Does he like blowjobs? Do you give him
same? Does he like talking? Do you listen? Some girls are
funny, they will admit to knowing that the other girl bests
them in several departments, yet still say, they don’t know
why he moved on to her. Really???
There several things that makes a man make up his mind
that it is you or otherwise. DONT get it twisted… If he finds
out that someone has 15 CORE things that you have only 3
of and even the 3 are sometimes canceled out by the bad
things like nagging, pride, greed…that have formed your
character. Your own don set. You are sitting there
comparing yourself to someone who has 13 things, more
than you and is willing to tolerate his weaknesses and learn
more. Yet you are quick to say, you don’t know what he
sees in “that girl”. Hey girlfriend, your beauty stands no
where near the towering personality and good heart “that
girl” has. Better recognize.
I know I have stepped on that last nerve you have been
tolerating me with. OYA delete me. I even need space to
add people who tolerate and think like I do.
I rest my case.
