Mummy B weds minors in Port Harcourt Church
This is a really weird story. Read it in one of our celeb mags. according to the story, a certain woman known as Mrs Blessing Paul a.k.a Mummy B on June 9th 2007, at her God's Intervention Ministries International located somewhere along Stadium Road in Port Harcourt, wed two minors, 17 year old Chinedu Chukwu and 14 year old Mary Ogunlewe in holy matrimony. The marriage which had parental consent was said to have aired on NTA Port Harcourt and has since generated a lot of controversy, most viewers of the programme were disgusted. Petitions are said to have been filed by some concerned lawyers who think Mary was given away because the parents needed dowry. Understandable but what about the boys parents...why did they give consent to a minor? They think marriage is a joke? E..ya!

Fred and Agatha Amata fight for custody of their children
When I find people in good marriages...like my best friend, I want to get married, but when I come across couples like this...marriage begins to scare me...because I know I'm the kind of person who will walk away if the marriage isn't working at all. In this part of the world most women stay in unhappy marriages...why? The Society? Family? Children? Friends? Starting all over again is scary for most women...so they stay and take all the misery.
One woman who walked out of an unhappy marriage is Agatha Amata, the pretty presenter/producer wife of Nollywood actor and director, Fred Amata. The once rosy relationship between the couple who separated a few years ago is getting messier. Now they are fighting over the custody of their children 13yr Oreva and & 7yr old Staphanie, with each filing suits in court and defaming each other's character. The couple separated a few years back after both accused themselves of infidelity. Sad!
