Sister Say What?

Sister Say What?

By Emmanuella Eke
I say it as it should be said!

Tadaaaaaaaaaaa...🤪

I am a Nigerian woman who is all too familiar with the African stereotypes on gender and society.

And I hate it. Bleehhhhh🙄

I host conversations on society matters touching on gender, relationship, marriage, belief systems and general lifestyle.

The humorous and yet enlightening episodes of SSW Podcast help men understand women's views and realities better, and help women evolve better.

Leggo Sis!

BETRAYAL! How LONG should a friend STAY in your HOME? And How to Make them leave!
There are betrayal stories everywhere, every now and then. Friends doing the most! In this episode, I share two stories with you; one with a philandering husband and another with a philandering wife. How long should friends really stay in your matrimonial home? And when you really don't want them to stay too long, how do you make them leave? If you're in such a dilemma, this video contains exactly how to make sure friends don't stay for more than the agreed time? I propose 3 days Max! Do you think it's unfair? How long do you suggest a friend should stay to avoid possible betrayal and back-biting? Do you agree with my proposed means of ensuring they leave as and when due? I would like to hear from you.  Full show notes available at https://theemmanuellablog.com.ng/category/podcasts Contact: Instagram: @theemmanuella Twitter: @ssw_podcast Facebook: @theemmanuellablog Blog: https://theemmanuellablog.com.ng/ For sponsorship/collaborations, email: admin@theemmanuellablog.com.ng

Is POLYGAMY the Solution to Cheating Disasters in Marriage?
Do you think cheating is the solution to cheating disasters in marriage? Several men clamoured for polygamy when the news of a side chic Chidimma murdering her billionaire benefactor broke the internet. Will polygamy reduce the occurrences of the side chic - Sugar Daddy trend like that of Chidimma and the billionaire disaster? Me, I think cheating spouses will keep cheating even with 300 wives and 700 concubines. I also hope polygamy clamourers are ready to be one of the husbands of one woman. Don't you think women would like the flavour too? Very interesting. See my exchange with a Facebook commenter on this side chic and sugar daddy experience. What do you think about his submission?  Let me know your opinion. Thank you for listening.

MONEY IN DISGUISE! Why Do Women Buy Things With Their Money But Lie?
Why would you woman buy something for yourself, with your own money, but announce to the world that your husband or boyfriend bought it?  Is it shame? Or complex? Or fear of the man? I don't get this. Can someone help me wrap my head around this?   These women can go as far as buying cars, houses, booking international trips, even buying engagement rings, or maybe simpler things like clothes, shoes or bags, and claim these are from men.   Have you had any experience or heard any personal story where a woman bought herself something with her money but lied that it was from a man?    Any ideas the cause of this problem?

Women Don't Like to Spend Their Money - True or False?
If I got a $$ every time I heard that women don't like to spend their own money😂! Is it true or false? What do you think? Do women like to spend their money? Or do women prefer to spend their man's money? And why so anyway? When women work and earn money, where do their money go? Have you ever tried to compare the list of needs of men and women? What was the result of your research?😁 This isn't about vanity, it's about reality. Budgeting and all that follows women's money. Are women naturally receivers and are men naturally givers? At what point should women reciprocate? This propaganda that follows women's money and spending, is it really founded?😩 Let me know if you see sense in my opinion✌️ or naa?

What is the Nigerian Teenage Girl's Dream?
I remember growing up thinking marriage was an easy-peasy; I mean it had to be easy for everyone to be talking about it the way they were. It's hard not to think like that when you grow up in Nigeria; like everyone is literally talking about marriage.  Does the dream of these young girls go farther than 'Get married to a rich, handsome man and have a bunch of kids?' In this episode, I go all the way into the typical Nigerian way of raising girls to aspire to marriage both through loud and subtle pressure. I hope you enjoy it and also let me know your opinions. PS, I had a hard time choosing a topic to launch SSW Podcast with - rebrand of Bitchup Podcast💃, as I actually have several topics lined up for you🤗. Heads up...
