A number of people view matters of love and relationships differently. Some guys and ladies seem to believe that a relationship is not feasible without being financially stable, while others are of the belief that true love conquers all.

Despite that the commonly accepted belief among some Nigerian ladies is that men should be able to take care of their needs. A number of them have even put a price on what their boyfriends should own.

A Nigerian lady identified as Maryam (@rozzeloya) on Twitter has taken to the microblogging site to explain that any man who does not have about half a million naira does not deserve intimacy. She further advised such men to go and work.

The Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), if treated properly with the right medications can be maintained. There was a time when society shunned people living with the virus, now it is something others help those living with it fight.

This unity has brought many HIV positive individuals to the limelight, to talk about their struggles and motivate others who are not brave enough or those who are going through some other kind of issue.

2018 brought with it many highs and lows. Legit.ng now looks at some memorable moments this year when HIV-positive individuals have inspired us all.

Zikhona Dingile: The 26-year-old lady is HIV-positive but fought against discrimination via social media. She revealed how the stigma has affected her whenever she disclosed her status.

The 29-year-old’s story is an interesting one as she initially contracted the virus while only 17 years of age.

The virus was passed on to her by an HIV-positive celebrity who has since passed away. Motsumi eventually accepted her HIV status 3 years later and started taking ARVs.

A Facebook user recently called the attention of Legit.ng to a case of alleged armed forces brutality currently ongoing in the Akowonjo area of Lagos state.

The man identified as Olalekan Yusuf in an eyewitness report said that, soldiers from the Shasha Airforce Base have been on the streets since Saturday, February 16, allegedly harassing and beating up people in the community.

He narrated in his report that the soldiers had been stationed on the street after one of the residents of the area required their attention to monitor the reparation of a pot hole at Shasha, Oguntade.

According to the witness, the soldiers while carrying out their duty had taken the opportunity to harass passersby. However, a particular man who was alleged to be a member of the OPC had revolted against the abuse from the military officials which had in turn resulted into a fight.

The incident had since then created tension and an atmosphere of fear as the people in the community are scared to move around freely.

He said: “There was a pot-hole at Shasha Oguntade that was repaired by one new hotel owner at Coker estate; during the repaired the man went to meet the air commander to station his soldiers there to monitor it… The soldiers were stationed there and not everyone passing by lives in Oguntade community and some people were walking at the side of the road to get things to eat and other stuffs but this soldier started using the opportunity to harass people, beating people up for no reason. Then there was another man that passed through the side and I think the man is an OPC member so they wanted to punish the man as they had done to others but he refused and went in an argument with them that led to a fight between the OPC guy and the Soldiers. They later went to pick the guy up around a place at Bammeke to arrest him. Ever since them we can’t move freely. We cannot go out to buy things because of their intimidation beating people up both male and female since Saturday morning till now. They are still there please we need help.”

On January 29, 2019, African-American movie star, Jussie Smollett, was reportedly a victim of a homophobic attack in Chicago. However, there have been claims that the actor might have staged the attack.

According to Daily Mail, Smollett has faced allegations that he might have staged the incident to save his role in popular series, Empire, because he was reportedly being written off the show.

There have been reports that two Nigerian brothers, Abimbola ‘Abel’ and Olabinjo ‘Ola’ Osundairo might have been paid off by Smollett to stage the attack.

The brothers were arrested on February 13, 2019, in connection to the case. They were picked up at the airport in Chicago after they arrived from Nigeria where they had gone to spend some time with their family.

Interestingly the brothers have been released with no charges as the police revealed there is now new evidence. Smollett has also vehemently denied paying the two brothers $3,500 to attack him.

His lawyers, Todd S. Pugh and Victor P. Henderson, disclosed to Entertainment Weekly that the star is now being victimised over the false allegations of him staging the incident. They also added that one of the brothers was Smollett’s trainer for a music video.

They said: “As a victim of a hate crime who has cooperated with the police investigation, Jussie Smollett is angered and devastated by recent reports that the perpetrators are individuals he is familiar with.

“He has now been further victimized by claims attributed to these alleged perpetrators that Jussie played a role in his own attack. Nothing is further from the truth and anyone claiming otherwise is lying.’

“One of these purported suspects was Jussie’s personal trainer who he hired to ready him physically for a music video.”

“It is impossible to believe that this person could have played a role in the crime against Jussie or would falsely claim Jussie’s complicity.”

Meanwhile after the news of the attack hit social media, some Nigerian celebs took to consoling the star including Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh.

Tonto preached love as she explained that people should not be attacked for loving differently. She also sent love and light the actor’s way.

The issue of tithing has raised a number of arguments among Christians. There are those with the school of thought that paying of tithes is unbiblical while others do not joke with paying it due to their belief that is brings blessings their way.

Nigerian on-air-personality (OAP) Daddy Freeze, is one individual who has been very vocal about his disbelief in tithing. According to him it is unbiblical and church pastors only use it to enrich their pockets.

This has earned him a lot of attacks on social media from people who do not agree with him.

Nigerian comedian, Akpororo, has revealed his stance on paying tithes in the past and he recently acquired another mansion in a choice area in Lagos state.

For this reason, Nollywood actor Uche Maduagwu, took to calling out Daddy Freeze on social media.

According to him, Akpororo has become a landlord in Lagos despite paying tithes. He wrote: “@akpororo Paid TITHE, and now he is a Landlord in Lagos, @daddyfrz Christianity is not a wrestling ground… @daddyfrz Learn to RESPECT peoples choice to tithing.”

He also warned Freeze to learn to respect people’s opinions because Christianity is not a battle ground: “@akpororo believed in tithing, and today, he now has a beautiful house of his own in Lagos, congrats, but there are people who don’t pay tithe, yet, they also have so many mansions all over the world, the bottom line is this, let us learn to RESPECT each others believe and what works for us, don’t let people like @daddyfrz mislead you, or is Christianity a wrestling contest?
