DOMESTIC VIOLENCE X MEDIA X NIGERIA

Daily she gets beaten, whipped, physically and mentally she is battered. Still, She performs her

duties as a wife and mother. She covers up with a story about falling or hitting her head. Until

one day he beats her beyond what her battered body can handle. This is the story of domestic

violence in many homes in Nigeria.

According to a research in 2016, Done by Domestic Violence Nigeria, it explains that one third

of all women in Nigeria have experienced physical abuse, that's about 40%. Crazy right?

There's a mental picture in the minds of Nigerians that a woman should assume domestic roles

which includes domestic Violence. She is the wife, mother, and caretaker even when she's

dissatisfied, as a way of showing Men superiority but does not justify beating or torturing her.

These days, Victims are coming out and this is largely due to the Availability of social Medias

platform. ( Mercy Aigbe, Tonto Dikeh, Muma gee etc) to share their stories and narrate their

ordeals, which is great to me, hopefully others in similar situations are courageous to remove

the mask.

There can be no doubt that, Social media influence on domestic violence has helped create

awareness and drive to end this terrible ordeal.

The question is, Will domestic Violence suddenly end because victims come out on social

media? Or is this the way to go about putting a stop to domestic violence?

HOW OLD ARE YOUR CHILDREN AND HOW DO THEY

PERCEIVE YOUR ACTING CAREER?

My 1st son David Tamuno Opubo Idasefiema is

17years old

Followed by Isaac Dagogo Idasefiema is 16

Chikezie Nwanne Okorie is 12

Patrick Chibueze Okorie is 11

Princess Ezinne Okorie is 5

My 1st 2 boys are in the uni studying Law and

civil Engineering respectively, while the last

2 are in their junior secondary school.

My Princess is just begining her primary school

My children are excited about my job as an

Actor and some of them are already making

moves towards same direction.

WHAT IS THE ONE THING THAT KEEPS YOU GOING

EVERY DAY YOU WAKE UP, BE IT A PHILOSOPHY OR

AN INSPIRATIONAL PERSON?

Hahahaha. It’s faith in God.

IT IS WOW INDUCING TO SEE HOW MUCH YOU ARE

DOING ESPECIALLY SINCE YOU ARE A MUM OF FIVE.

HOW DO YOU MANAGE ACTING, MODELING, AND

PHILANTHROPY WITH LOOKING AFTER YOUR

FAMILY?

I can’t say it’s easy because it’s not, however

it’s fun and why is that? Because it’s all that I

love doing and that is to say am passionate

about Acting, philanthropy and momming

(permit me to use that word. Lol). All that I do

is art and art is about creativity. Every real

human being or natural person has creative

innate abilities because it flows effortlessly

with a lot of joy, peace and comfort.

I started all of these few years after my call to

the Nigerian Bar about 12 years ago and by

then my boys where no longer babies except

for my daughter who came 5 years ago.

GET TO KNOW CHARITY

WHAT IS A TYPICAL SCHEDULE OF YOUR DAY LIKE?

Wake up in the morning and do the 5 morning rituals

pray, brush, help my gang with breakfast and set them

off to school and then comes my exercise. After that I

have breakfast and off to work or set. Back home when

work is done. Some days it could be early some days it

could be late.

AS A BUDDING ACTRESS AND MODEL, WHAT ARE

THE CHALLENGES YOU FACE?

As an Actress, am not facing challenges personally;

however actors in Nollywood are facing challenges of

mediocrity resulting from various influence of culture,

lack of government support and complex of culture. By

culture, I am talking about how our African society’s

perception of women especially has even affected how

our stories are interpreted. Government in the developed

world support filmmaking but not here in Nigeria. Finally

our stories suffer complex and by this I mean that our

script writers instead of being original especially in our

stories render our African stories in a western way and

this makes our films to be neither here nor there.

WHICH NOLLYWOOD ACTORS HAVE YOU WORKED

WITH SO FAR? WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE AND WHO

DO YOU WISH TO WORK WITH IN THE FUTURE?

I have worked with quite a number of them

and a good number of them have also worked

for me.

I will just mention a few. Keneth Okonkwo,

Keneth Okolie, Blossom Chukwujekwu, Preach

Op Bassey, Ifeanyi Kalu, Wole Ojo, Ujams

Cybriel, Wale Ojo, Ken Erics, Chucks Chyks,

Nobert Young, Zack Orji , Daniel LLOYD,

Francis Duru, Tony Goodman Ezimmadu, Femi

Branch, Deyemi Okanlawon, Paul Sambo etc.

Ladies include Mercy Johnson, Easter Audu,

Lilian Esoro, Thelma Okodua, Tamara Eteiemo,

Empress Njamah, Tina Mbah etc.

I honestly look forward to working with all of

them again because they all have their unique

and special flavour and spice to creativity.

SOFA TALK

THE WIDOWS DEFENDER

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO STAY HEALTHY, FIT AND IN SHAPE LIKE YOU? IN OTHER WORDS, HOW DO YOU MAKE

OUT TIME TO KEEP YOURSELF LOOKING SO FLY ROUND THE CLOCK?

At this point I would like to sing PSQUARE song “e no easy eeeh’’ lol . My dear it is not easy but do-able. It

calls for the 2 difficult but possible D’s, Discipline and Determination. That’s all it takes. Nothing good

comes easy but if you are passionate enough, your passion will drive you to achieving it.

I eat my fruits and vegetables especially watermelon and cucumber and I exercise at home or at the gym

when time permits. However I must add that however you see yourself please love and accept yourself

because that is the beginning of your good health and glow.

“My mother was my Father”.

She is the Wonder woman I

know.

HOW IS ABUJA SCENERY FOR ACTING, BECAUSE IT IS PERCEIVED THAT ACTING IS

MORE ENCOURAGING IN LAGOS?

That is a wrong assumption. Abuja is best for acting as far as beautiful scenery, quietness, convenience in

navigating from one location to the other is concerned. There are more filmmakers in Lagos but that is

changing now. There is what you can call Lagos-Abuja migration by film makers and actors. However

Nollywood films are made in different parts of Nigeria South, East, North and West.

SOFA TALK WITH CHARITY

HOW DOES YOUR ORGANIZATION REACH OUT TO HELPLESS WIDOWS IN REMOTE AREAS WHO ARE NOT AWARE

THAT THEY HAVE RIGHTS AND THESE RIGHTS CAN BE PROTECTED BY YOUR NGO....?

It may interest you to know that the NGO has its offices now in 19 states in Nigeria and by the end of 2020

it will have its offices in all 36 states of Nigeria. The reason is that CEDWIN is meant for rural and indigent

widows and their children. The only reason we have our headquarters in Abuja is because of the 6 area

councils in the FCT and the fact that these area councils are under the direct supervision of the Director

General of CEDWIN who is my humble self.

The state offices are headed by the state coordinators and their activities are reported to the headquarters

through the various regional chairmen. We have 6 chairmen and each oversees each region south-south,

south East, North West, North East, South West and North Central. By this system we are accessible and our

projects get to the right people without much protocol.

AS DIRECTOR GENERAL OF CENTER FOR DEFENSE OF WIDOWS RIGHTS IN NIGERIA, HOW MANY CASES OF

MALTREATMENT AGAINST WIDOWS HAVE YOUR NGO CHAMPIONED, TAKEN TO COURT AND WON?

We have been involved in quite a number of them and I would even like to mention

them by name but for the confidentiality we try to maintain with our members... But

like I mentioned earlier, because of some cultural draw backs and pleas from the

victims themselves, we many a times resort to arbitration since in most of these

cases family is involved and arbitration leaves them friends and not enemies which

is what you get after going to court.

THE WIDOWS RIGHT

DEFENDER

GIVING BACK

WHEN DID YOU CONCEIVE THE IDEA OF AN NGO?

The NGO was conceived since when I was 13. My father

died when I was 6 and my mother was left alone to cater

for 5 of us and my father’s people where not ready to

help. We held our hands together with our mom and

walked and worked through it all. It was an experience I

am still going to bring to your screen. It was in the heat of

it all that I made up my mind as young as I was then 13

that I was going to spend my adult age making sure

widows and their children around me don’t suffer. It was a

massive life experience and I love my mom so much

because like I will always say “My mother was my Father”.

She is the Wonder woman I know.

WHAT HAS BEEN THE GREATEST CHALLENGE FACED

BY YOUR NGO?

I will say economic challenges and societal beliefs.

The economic situation in the country does not give

both government and private persons the buoyancy to

think of charity of any kind.

There are some sociological cultural beliefs that

discourage people from engaging in charity either as a

donor or Beneficiary. This am sure will come to you as a

surprise but we have had such situations where a widow

refused our assistance because she claims it is a cultural

thing and she must do it. And I am talking about a

widow being forced to bear children for her late

husband’s brother or be stripped off all her children’s

inheritance.

THE WIDOWS RIGHT

DEFENDER

touch lives

DOES YOUR NGO HAVE INTERNATIONAL SUPPORT WHEN THE

JUSTICE SYSTEM IN NIGERIA FAILS TO PROTECT THESE

WIDOWS?

Yes of course. However I must say that the Justice

system in Nigeria is not basically the problem rather it

is the victims accepting or agreeing to take their cases

to the courts because most of the issues we are

dealing with here are cultural and when they are not,

you find them shying away from the public because of

the nature of the cases such as rape and other forms

of violence.

YOU ARE A LAWYER BY PROFESSION, ARE YOU PRACTICING?

AND HOW DID ALL THE PASSION FOR GETTING DIFFERENT

THINGS DONE AT DIFFERENT TIMES START?

don’t go to court if that is what you want to know however

I do every other thing lawyers do. I was in private practice

for 8 years before I decided to give my creativity a larger

space.

WHAT ARE YOUR BIGGEST REGRETS IN ALL THAT YOU DO?

That I did not give my creative instincts all the space in

me from my childhood…

YOU ARE TRULY INSPIRING. FOR THOSE OF US THAT WANT TO

BE LIKE YOU WHEN WE GROW UP, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY

TO US?

You are lucky you haven’t grown so you can start now to

give your creativity the whole space it needs and that way

when you become as old as I am you will have no regrets

lol..

Thank you so much Ma'am.

It was so inspiring chatting with you today. You have

literally made our day. We cannot thank you enough for

hanging out with us at STYLEBEAT MAG NG

ON THE STREETS" WITH KAYZ umeh

Photo :Peniel_Enchill

Coined from instagram.com

I was wearing a bra well before many my age. That came with its share

of challenges. Some were internal and some were external. When you

are young and trying to belong it is not fun to stand out. But as I grew

up I began to appreciate my endowments. I came to appreciate how

womanly it made me and how much it did for me in clothing. I came

to understand that my breasts are hardly twins but they are actually

sisters.

I WAS WEARING BRA BEFORE

MANY MY AGE...

I think every grown woman comes to learn this about her breasts. Even

though I was not crazy about the fact that bras in my size are more

expensive than same bras in smaller sizes, it was instructive to watch

ladies go under the knife to get something that I had naturally. Then

they would go on social media to show off their unique feminine

features even if it was bought. But like a wise person once said " if I

bought it, its mine". Needless to say the breasts of a woman is of very

great importance indeed.

"ON THE STREETS" WITH KAYZ umeh

Photo :Peniel_Enchill

Coined from instagram.com

In the wake of October as cancer awareness month I have seen photos of real

women who posed nude showing what I call survival scars, pictures of the breasts

that are no longer there. Those pictures teach me lessons in courage, strength ,

faith and love. I can not even imagine what these powerful women have dealt with.

Sadly, for every person that survived cancer there is another that could not make it.

There is a lit candle in our hearts for all those who have been taken away from us by

cancer.

I had a nightmare that I had no breast and I woke up horrified.The fact is no one is

THE WOMAN AND HER BREASTS

exempted from cancer and its effects. It can affect anyone or their loved one.

The importance of self examination can never be over emphasized. The higher

chance of successful treatment after early detection can also never be over

emphasized. If it dimples strangely, see a doctor. If it changes shape, see a doctor. If

there is an odd mole that is growing strangely see a doctor. If there are lumps, see a

doctor. If it produces fluid for no good reason , see a doctor. As you get older start

including annual pap smears in your regular health check up. Eat your fruit and

veggies. Meditate and exercise daily. Give love and receive love. You are never alone.

Together we can make the difference in the fight against cancer. Long live all of you

kings and queens! Till the next time we meet up here.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR KIDNEYS HEALTHY

Background image by w-y-s-f.tumblr.com

Hi, my name is Ogochukwu Ejiofor, I will like to bring an

insight on how healthy our kidneys are. First of all, I am a

young adult who has the firm believe that my body is

young and can withstand any pressure thrown at it, either

in my food habits or general way of life. Recently I was

diagnosed with a serious kidney infection.I had to change

my believes. First I realized that kidney failure or infection

is not just for rich people, because I have come across lots

of people who refer to diseases like Kidney failure/

infections, cancer and diabetes as rich man sickness.

Nowadays the sickness'' no dey look face oo''. I want to

encourage young people to get to know their body

system, know what is constant in your body and what is

not, what is weird if you see it and what is spooky. Don't

assume that every change that your body passes through

is normal, this will make you nonchalant hence if

something serious is wrong with you, it might not be

noticed or diagnosed on time.

This was my case, fortunately I had always paid attention

to my body so it helped me to get diagnosed early. I will

like to share some symptoms that I experienced that you

as a young adult might over look, because sincerely I over

looked some..

kidney auction

KIDNEYS ARE GOLD

1) Itching for no reason: you know your body is clean, yet you find yourself scratching you

body in different place at different times. Just take note of it if it continues.

2) Hiccup: I know as a child, anytime i get Hiccup, my mum will say i should drink water,

hence i noticed that hiccup comes as a result of lack of water. As an adult please don't

overlook having hiccups, it might be nothing but make sure you take excess water, if it

continues please tell someone or see a doctor.

3)Migraines : There is a difference between having a headache and having a Migraine. these

Migraines are continuous and comes as a result of stress, lack of sleep and other body

malfunction. please don't overlook or say it will pass, it might pass but its a sign.

4) Tiredness: This will be very obvious to the agile ones. If you always feel tired and you

know within yourself that you had not done anything that will warrant the tiredness or your

too tired to climb the stairs that you usually jump down in seconds, please think again.

Something might not be wrong but its not also harm to check yourself.

5) Boils: OK, now this is one of the weird ones for me. The last time i had boils, i was a

teenager and that was on my eyelids. when you see boils on your joints, eg kneels, ankle,

elbows etc. Once you burst it, another one comes out in the same spot, and another.......

please don't keep quite. when i went to the pharmacist, i was told i had an internal infection

and was given drug(the drugs were costly, i would have still gone to the hospital to check

properly, that was my mistake).

6) Not Urinating: you might be urinating, but when your if not doing it well, you will know,

because your water intake should cause you to urinate more, but instead your begging Urine

to come out even when you are pressed.

Background image from w-y-s-f.tumblr.com


kidney auction

HEALTH IS WEALTH

7)Swollen legs: this is the peak of this kidney infection, if your legs are swollen like a

pregnant woman please run don't walk, to the doctor.this indicates that you kidney is

shutting down or has deteriorate to only one. please visit the doctor and reduce your intake

of water, this will make the water on your legs reduce.

8)Feel like vomiting: your not sick, your not pregnant yet you feel like emptying your bowls,

my dear its not the food you ate. even if its not the kidney, something is wrong.

Those are the crucial symptoms. that you can't over look. here are some tips on what we do

wrongly to endear our Kidneys.

1) Food Combination: allow your kidney the space to test on food at a time, dont combine

food, it doesn't help the process of food breakdown eg rice and beans, eat rice then eat bean

don't mix it.

2) Oily Food: too much of oil isn't good for you kidney, cut down the oil intake.

3) Excess Salt : for those who love extra salt on anything they eat ranging from popcorn to

cooked food, please be careful, like the saying ''too much of everything is bad''.

4) Alcohol: taking a bottle a day is damaging your kidney, best you take twice or three times

in two weeks, helps the kidneys to digest its contents.

5) No veggies: try not to cook veggies for long, so as to still absorb the nutrients. most

importantly try to eat as much raw fruits and vegetable as possible, helps your body system

balance up all the junk and sugar you have been dealing with.

kidney for keeps

HEALTH IS WEALTH

6) Excess Sugar : i know our age and time, we like sweet mouth, but please don't take too

much of it.If you do,be sure to support your system with vegetables.Try and purge your self

once in two weeks helps to reduce pressure.

7)Lack of Water: drink water regularly, you must not wait till your tasty before you pour in

the natural liquid, help you body because it might be tasty and you don't even know it.

8) Holding Urine: ladies this goes out to you mostly, please on no account should you hold

your urine. its a gradual process but it will surely help you damage your kidneys/urine bag.

as you take in fluids, be sure to remove them when the urge comes.

9)Too much Meat: Too much red meat boost metabolic load on kidneys.

10) Lack of Sleep: the kidneys need rest, needs to refresh.

11) Too much Coffee: the excess coffee intake is a problem to kidneys.

12) Abuse of Drugs: please don't engage in self medication or abuse pain killers. especially

when you have migraine.

I hope with this little insight and from my experiences ( I am not a doctor), i have been able

to educate, save someone from having this serious disease.

Always take care of yourself, your health is your Wealth.......

EAGLES SOAR TO RUSSIA

The Super Eagles of Nigeria will join other footballing nations in Russia after successfully securing a

ticket to the World Cup, Russia 2018. The impressive performance put up by the Eagles saw an

accumulation of 13 points from 5 games, winning 4 matches and drawing just one in a group that

consists of current continental champions, Cameroon, Algeria, Zambia and Nigeria; all former African

champions. Algeria being the only team that hasn't won the African title within the last decade.

Tourists all over the world will converge in Russia in 2018 for football's, and sport's most prestigious

competition, the FIFA World Cup.

The tournament hosting rights for the 20th edition awarded to Russia hasn't been totally free from

controversy but it has survived a stormy episode of a shake-up in FIFA and a most troubling question -

if they were validly awarded hosting rights.

The nascent leadership of Gianni Infantino, who emerged as FIFA president after the morass of

scandals, will face a major test as he oversees the FIFA World Cup for the first time in a weird

combination of beautiful football, Russian vodka, Putin(who has officially invited FIFA's former

president - Sepp Blatter), cold Russian weather (less so because of summer) and suppressive anti-gay

laws.

Africa will be represented by 5 different countries one of whom is Nigeria.

Russia 2018 will become the sixth time Nigeria will be participating at the World Cup after her first

participation at the USA in 1994 where the Eagles stunned the world by reaching the second round

with a crop of barely exposed players when they lost to former world champions, Italy. Nigeria missed

out in 2006 when Germany hosted.

The world awaits for Russia 2018; a fresh opportunity for every team to aim for the title and for

defending champions, Germany, to defend the trophy successfully won on Brazilian soil in 2014.

It is appropriately in order to expect fantastic football and other pleasant surprises.

Brace yourselves!
