While discussing why some women might be stuck in a relationship that is not healthy for them, she mentioned a few interesting points:
“I’ve learnt now that mind-blowing sex is not what makes a good relationship..”
“Usually, Men that are the Casanova’s in bed.. They are rubbish men,”
and when asked why do South African’s want Nigerians’ out of their country.. she said:
“It bothers me that South African’s are Xenophobic.. It was not mainly actually towards Nigerian a such, because they’re scared of Nigerians”
“The people they targeted were mainly Somalis’..”
She also mentioned that one of the main issues South Africans had with Nigerians in SA is that they take their women, as South African men had previously lamented!:
“it’s mainly because you (Nigerians) come and take their women”
