Marriage is one of the most sacred things in this world, an exciting and long journey but sometimes marriage could be short either to misunderstanding between the partners which could lead to divorce or death of one partner.

A marriage that dissolves due to the death of another partner is a sad occurrence as the one left behind became mostly unhappy and frequently miss their partners, it even becomes harder when kids are involved as the burden of two people suddenly become a burden of just one person.

We have lots of women that remarried after the painful death of their husbands while some prefer to remain single all their lives and focus on the kids. Yes, we have strong women especially in Nigeria who never remarried after the death of their husbands and took proper care of their kids.

In the yoruba movie industry, we have lots of actresses who lost their loving husbands and didn’t remarry as they have remained single for years.

These loving actresses remained single after losing their husband to the cold hands of death. See below;

Toyin Adegbola popularly known as ‘Asewo To Re Mecca’ lost her husband in 2000 and didn’t remarry as she focuses on her children and nurtures them.

But one question people won’t stop asking is whether Toyin Adegbola will ever remarry. In a chat with Yorubamoviegist.com recently, she was asked the same question and her response would interest you.

Toyin Adegbola

“You know at the initial stage I felt there is no man I will marry and would not want a child or two from me. And that I was sure couldn’t do because I love my children so much and the only thing I can do to make their late father happy is give them the proper care a mother could give her children on earth. That I have been able to achieve, as they are now grown up and they all have Masters degree in their academic pursuits. So, I think my fear is over and I can now remarry if a serious suitor comes my way. Maybe someone that just needs a life partner or something. You know am above 50 now”, she stated.

The beautiful Rachel Oniga left her husband even before his death and never remarry as she rather focuses on her children.

In a chat with The Entertainer, Rachael whose dream as a kid was to be a singer and dancer said, “I started acting in 1993 after I got separated from my husband; he’s late now. I was a full time housewife. I believed so much in myself, and when I got over the shock of the separation and all that, I made up my mind that I was going to make a statement without a man. I wanted to prove that a hard working woman could make an impact and with God’s grace, I have come a long way.

On how she was able to handle the separation, she said “The truth is that when you are focused and you know where you are going to, you are likely to succeed. I made up my mind then that I wasn’t going to remarry. I was determined to make it and make all men including my late husband know that with God by her side, a woman can make it in life without a man’s support.”

The new husband might not like to have the kids live with us and there would be some problems that will happen as a result of them living with us

and I can’t compare my kids with anything in this world and I decided to stay with them and forget the idea of marrying another man.

I am happy I was able to take care of them with the help of God,”

The beautiful mother of two kids lost her husband 17 years ago and has remained single as she also focuses on catering for her children.

In an interview with DUPE AYINLA-OLASUNKANMI of  The Nation, Regina tells why she is yet to remarry

She said,

Actually, it is because of them (her children)  that I decided not to remarry then. Like I said earlier, I won’t call myself a single parent, because I am Igbo; the fact that you have lost your husband does not mean that you are still not married to that family.

So as it is traditionally I am still married to my husband family; I am still their wife and if they want to do any family function, I am considered and called upon. I still belong to the community wives meeting. When my husband passed away, I was called and asked if I wanted to remarry.

Regina Chukwu

The condition was for me to leave their children and go ahead. But I looked at my kids and they were still very young and I decided to stay. My children have been asking if I won’t remarry; they want a baby sister or brother. But I don’t know what God has in plan for me. I am open to whatever God is says will happen to me.

If I decide to remarry now, it means whoever I want to get married to will pay my bride price and my parents will then go back to my late husband’s family to return the bride price they paid on me. It is tradition telling them this lady is no longer your wife. But when it is not done, I still remain their wife. I still paid my Mother-in-law a visit last year.

Ramadan is the Arabic name for the ninth month in the Islamic calendar.

It is considered one of the holiest Islamic months. It’s also one of the Five Pillars of Islam. These are five principles which Muslims believe are compulsory acts ordered by God.

Muslims believe that some of the first verses of the Islamic holy book, the Qu’ran, were revealed to the Prophet Muhammad during the month of Ramadan. Extra emphasis is placed on reciting the Qu’ran at this time.

Fasting is considered to be an act of worship, which enables Muslims to feel closer to God and strengthen their spiritual health and self-discipline.
Ramadan being considered as an act of worship and an era of cleanliness. There are songs you musn’t listen to during these period.

1. Naira Marley ft Busiswah – Coming

Ramadan

Although, Coming was initially banned within 12hours of its release. Coming happens to be a song with sex lyrics which could make someone to become horny in minutes. Islam doesn’t give audience for bad songs and lifestyles during this period of Ramadan. Trashing Coming by Naira Marley ft Busiswah would help you a lot. The main reason is that it contains explicit lyrics and Naira Marley page on Instagram is also a taboo for Muslims during this period.


2. Kilofeshe – Zinoleesky

Kilofeshe by Zinoleesky is a catchy record and a general favourite that was one of the biggest songs of the latter end of the previous year. But the song advises and advocates for the listener to do however they please and this goes against the core belief of Ramadan whereby personal desires and pleasures are to take a backseat.

So this holy period, you might want to have a rethink on doing as you please as the lines of the song say and rather, listen to the words of the Holy Quran which is the reason for the season.

3. Bounce – Rema

With the period of Ramadan comes the cautionary saying to ‘lower your gaze’ and also to ‘purify your intentions.’ These phrases are important where and when booties you have no business watching are concerned. So unlike Rema who was on a rampage for bouncing booties on his hit song Bounce, this Ramadan is a time to embark on a journey of holiness instead.


4. Naira Marley – Soapy

Soapy, as popularized by street-hop singer and rapper, Naira Marley simply means masturbation. This is a sin in Islam and during the Holy Month should be avoided as abstinence from sexual activity that isn’t between married couples is a no-no during the Holy Month.


5. Omah Lay – Ye Ye Ye

Scientists have made it known that despite being an activity from which pleasure may be derived, sex is also an energy-consuming activity. Well now it’s Ramadan and Allah would rather you convert that energy into consecrating yourself and worshipping him for pleasures beyond the bodily realm. As a result, it is advised you do away with any thoughts and actions which will sap your energy and holiness as you go ‘ye ye ye’ like Omah Lay in his explicit song, thus titled, about sex.
