Paul Biya’s daughter reveals lesbian status despite anti-LGBTQ law

Published

Brenda, daughter of Paul Biya, the president of Cameroon, has shared a photo of herself kissing another woman.

In a recent social media post, the president’s daughter revealed that she is in a relationship with Brazilian model Layyons Valença.

In the accompanying caption, Brenda openly expressed her love for the model and declared her lesbian status.

“I am crazy about you and I want the world to know,” Brenda wrote, adding a love heart emoji.

This is not the first time that the two women have shown their closeness on social media.

Brenda, who is 26 and a singer, also shared an article published by Le Monde, wherein the magazine reported that she had “come out”.

Paul Biya, 91, became Cameroon’s president in 1982 and he is one of Africa’s longest-ruling leaders.

Since 2016, the country’s penal code provides up to five years of imprisonment and a fine of 200,000 CFA francs (305 euros) in the event of sexual intercourse between two people of the same sex.

Human rights groups have previously criticised Cameroon’s strict laws against members of the LGBT community.

There have also been questions about whether Brenda’s sexuality is a privilege that can only be enjoyed by a select few in the country.

Bandy Kiki, the Cameroonian LGBT activist, said anti-LGBT laws in the country “disproportionately target the poor”.

“It highlights a harsh reality. Wealth and connections create a shield for some, while others face severe consequences,” Kiki said.

President Biya and the Cameroonian government are yet to officially comment on the issue.

British rapper and singer, Stephanie Allen, popularly known as Stefflon Don, has stated that award-winning Nigerian singer, Damini Ogulu, also known as Burna Boy, is the love of her life.

Stefflon Don made the claim in an interview with Fernando Halman on the Netherlands music platform, Real Talk, which was released on social media on Saturday.

When asked if Burna Boy still held a special place in her heart, the Jamaica-born singer responded with an unequivocal, “Yes!, with dreamy eyes and a voice softened by fond memories.

As the conversation continued, Stefflon Don didn’t shy away from revealing that she is currently in a relationship, but failed to reveal the identity of her current beau.

When asked if she is about to be married, Stefflon Don debunked any marriage rumours, making it clear that when she decides to walk down the aisle, the world will undoubtedly hear about it.

In 2022, Burna Boy released the breakout hit “Last Last” which is certified Platinum in the US. The song was rumoured to be about his relationship with Stefflon Don which ended in 2021.

When asked about a song written about her, Stefflon Don stated that Burna Boy admitted the song was about her.

“He has actually said that the song is about me,” she said.

Stefflon Don is just about the most celebrated girlfriend of the Nigerian singer and their love life was even more celebrated.

There were even rumours of the couple coming back together but it never panned out.

Why women break up with men they are still in love with

Published

By

Many people wonder why women break up with men they are still in love with. It’s confusing, heartbreaking, and seems to go against the idea of staying together for love.

Yet, it happens more often than we think. Love alone is not always enough to sustain a relationship.

One of the main reasons women leave men they love is the lack of emotional support. Relationships need more than just love to thrive. They require understanding, listening, and caring for each other’s feelings. If a woman feels emotionally neglected, it can be very painful.

Over time, this lack of support can make her feel lonely and unimportant, leading her to leave the relationship, even if she still loves her partner.

Every couple faces conflicts. However, if these conflicts remain unresolved, they can pile up and become too heavy to carry. Women try to communicate their feelings and concerns, but if their partners do not listen or take their issues seriously, it can create a rift.

Constant fighting without resolution can make the relationship toxic, pushing a woman to leave to find peace and happiness.

As people grow, their goals and dreams might change. Sometimes, a woman might find that her life goals no longer align with her partner’s. This difference can be about career aspirations, having children, or where to live.

When these fundamental goals clash, staying together can become a struggle. Even if love is still present, the practical aspects of life can force a difficult breakup.

Feeling valued and appreciated is essential in any relationship. Women want to feel special and loved, not just through words but also through actions.

If a man stops showing appreciation, whether through small gestures or acknowledging her efforts, it can make her feel taken for granted. This feeling of being unappreciated can erode the love she has and make her decide to leave.

Sometimes, women break up with men they love because they realise they need to focus on their personal growth. They might feel that they have lost their identity in the relationship or that they need time to discover themselves. This self-awareness can drive them to end the relationship to work on becoming the best version of themselves.

Trust is the foundation of any healthy relationship. If a man cheats or lies, it can shatter the trust between the couple. Once broken, trust is very hard to rebuild. A woman might still love her partner but feel that the betrayal is too big to overcome. The pain of infidelity can lead her to leave the relationship to protect herself from further hurt.

In some cases, women leave because they do not feel safe. This could be due to emotional, verbal, or physical abuse.

No matter how much love there is, safety comes first. If a woman feels threatened or unsafe, she must prioritise her well-being and leave the relationship.

Breaking up with someone you still love is never easy. Women make this choice for various reasons, and by acknowledging and addressing these issues, couples can work towards a more fulfilling and enduring relationship, ensuring that love is complemented by the respect and support it deserves.

My wife’s allowance is very high – Seun Kuti speaks on marriage challenges

Nigerian singer Seun Kuti has humorously revealed that his wife’s allowance is the most challenging thing he has to endure in their marriage.

He stated this during their recent interview on Pulse Fun Facts, where they asked each other a series of questions about his marriage to Yetunde and their relationship. Yetunde asked, “What is the most challenging thing you have endured in our relationship?”

Seun immediately responded, highlighting how expensive her monthly allowance is and how hard it is for him to put the funds together.

“Her allowance is very high—seven figures every month,” he said in between laughter. “I’m not joking; her allowance is very high and she has a high taste. That’s challenging because I have to work for the money and it’s not easy. It’s very, very high. I don’t know how we negotiated it; I must have been under duress during negotiations.”

Yetunde then asked, “Have you had any regrets since we got married?” and in response, Seun stressed that he does not believe in the idea of regrets and therefore has none.

He asserted, “I don’t do regrets; I don’t regret anything in my life so I cannot regret anything in our marriage. I don’t do regrets; regret is for the weak.”

The singer then asked Yetunde about things she was grateful for in their marriage and she said, “I’m grateful for him, grateful for our daughter; what else?”

“What about the sex?” Seun interjected.

“I’m grateful for the sex as well; I almost forgot that part because I didn’t know that we were supposed to talk about that here,” Yetunde responded, laughing.

Next, Yetunde asked the singer to disclose what he would change about their marriage if he could, to which he jokingly noted that he would appeal to the ancestors to make her taller.

Seun said, “I would ask the ancestors to give her more height; the Lord should help her and help me raise her up a bit. Our daughter is almost taller than her and she’s only ten years old. That’s the only thing I think they should change. And oh, her mouth!”
