It was sunny day, in a beautiful village called Odobaji, Olamaboro LGA in kogi state. As usual I was in charge of photography of a client’s traditional marriage ceremony, I was hungry, so I requested for food. The attendant enquired “what will you like to eat”, then I asked for Rice and beef stew. In less than 5 minutes here comes my meal, I collected the food with a bottle of water. Immediately I gulped in the first spoon, I notice a unique and distinct taste that I have never felt in any tomato stew before.

An African school thought said, “A man’s state of mind depends on the lady to a larger extent. It’s her duty to keep the relationship satisfied in every way. Keep a healthy environment at home, have good sex, good cook, be friendly, respect his views, share, discuss and find a solution to problems jointly, after doing all this, you see him go crazy in love with you”.
