Annie unfazed by Tuface kissing scandal

During the week, a picture emerged of Tuface Idibia kissing his baby’s mother and ex lover, Pero Adeniyi. The picture of the two saw them hugging each other and kissing each other at a night club. One of the pictures even saw Pero sitting comfortably and Tuface’s laps. Instantly stories started flying around that the marriage between the African Queen crooner and Annie is in trouble and was about to hit the rocks.
The whole story was also fuelled by the fact that Annie recently granted an interview where she said that she would not want her daughter to marry a man that already has children from other women. That statement got a lot of negative reactions online, so when the pictures surfaced, it was easy to deduce that all is not well with the marriage.

When reached to find out the status of her marriage after the exposure of the pictures, Annie released this statement, “I am aware of the photo's circulating the internet with my husband and Pero Adeniyi. I want to state officially that I was not in that space at that time and therefore there was no confrontation between myself and Pero Adeniyi. Pero Adeniyi and this momentary indiscretion poses no threat whatsoever to my relationship with my husband. As a matter of fact for all of our children's' sake, I do encourage cordial relationships with parties involved. This year, my focus is solely on God, Family and my Career which doesn't give me the luxury of paying attention to any distractions.” Tuface is yet to talk on the issue.

Guys: Before you jump in bed with a virgin

Chatting with some friends lately and I can’t remember how the to topic veered into sleeping with a virgin. Two of them said it was the worst experience of their lives, two said he would really like to try one out. I? well I ask myself, are there still virgins out there? What I don’t understand is, why are there mixed reactions to getting down with a virgin. This is what I came up with after asking around and some online queries.
1- There’s extra prep work
Unlike a more experienced woman, a virgin really doesn’t know what to expect. This means that you’re going to have to put in some effort before the deed is done and plan ahead to make sure that she’s comfortable and completely willing. It may take some considerable convincing on your part to get her into bed, and while that isn't one of our five reasons not to sleep with a virgin, your seduction skills will certainly be put to the test when it comes to taking a girl’s virginity. Also, the older she is, the harder it will be. If she has managed to protect her virginity all through her school days and into her 20s, it will be that much more difficult to persuade her that she should give it up to you.
