Cardi B shopped for groceries at an upscale supermarket in the city and donated the items to an orphanage.

Hip-hop executive, Brooklyn Johnny, who accompanied her on the trip said the rapper bought as many items as their cars could hold.

“We spent our only free time in Nigeria shopping for children in need. We literally bought as much as the vehicles we had in our convoy could carry… Today was a good day,” he wrote.

Saturday night, Cardi B performed at the first leg of the Livespot X Festival at the Eko Atlantic City in Lagos.

If you can’t afford it, don’t ask him – Toke Makinwa tells ladies

Published

on

Toke Makinwa says women should stop asking men for things they cannot buy for themselves. In a chat with Iyabo Ojo, Toke averred that having the disposition that a man will buy a woman anything is the reason why men do not respect women anymore.

 

Toke during the chat expressed her displeasure at women who are in the habit of asking men for money to buy wigs, bags, shoes and other mundane things.

‘’If you can’t buy it for yourself, don’t ask him. Don’t do it. And they are the reason why men insult women. As a women, when you now have standards, then they look at you as if you are asking for too much. Just because the bare minimum has asked you to buy her a wig”

“As a woman, you’re living in Mushin, and you’re putting pressure on a guy to buy you a house in Banana Island. I’m sorry. Make it make sense. Can you buy it? Can you even move yourself out of where you are small?

“If he meets you maybe like halfway and you are saying to him that ‘Bros, I worked hard to get halfway but I’ve a dream. My dream is not to be here where you met. And I’m not lazy. For me to leave this point to get to that point, you can see the triat of hard work. Are you going to join me to move there or are you going to be there?’ Period.”
