I have a question please!

Happy Monday Y'all!..Ok I am chipper for a monday sha, cuz Lord knows I do not like Mondays. Maybe it's my new hairdo that's making me happy.sidebar: I have been trying to get this look for a while now and God bless my lovely country, I finally got it. 'Twas the first time a man had done my hair too. I'm gonna miss this place :(.

Ok back to regularly scheduled program (or question in my case). So I finally got to watch the BET awards and I was watching with a bunch of people. Beyonce in her (i wanna be avant garde) garb was performing and one of the dudes said, "I don't like how Beyonce looks she has lost weight, I like her bigger".

Ok lemme rewind.

I have always had the impression that men in naija liked them lepa. I am not a skinny girl by any means never was. I am one of those "thick"(I hate this word) girls. I have more than enough hips, thighs and butt and growing up all I ever heard was that I am fat. Coming to America (hehe), discussions among my fellow nigerians was that men liked women thicker back home and I always disagreed with it because that wasn't my experience.

Fast forward how many years later, walk around Silverbird or MegaPlaza, you'll see all the lepa babes primped and dolled up in their skinny jeans and you dont need a sign to let you know that skinny is in (or is it just me). Hearing my relatives talk once as they described an ideal wife, the word "and she is slim and not chubby" has been used and we all know how fixated on weight people in nigeria always are("oh you have added" anyone?)so I wanna throw it out there bloggers from your own knowledge or experience: Do the men in naija prefer them skinny or fleshy?

ps I know that it all depends on individual taste. Just indulge me and give me your stereotypical POV.

pss.happy birthday to the man who is partially responsible for giving me life.

psss. based on blogsvilled alone and the number of friends/people that are around, I have to say that a BUNCH of people are back in Nigeria oh.It also seems like we all seem to like it, I can't believe I ever thought I'd be begging to go back to yankee. Those of y'all thinking about coming back to Naija, it's really not bad.Just do it! umm, secure a job first sha.

Have a lovely week ahead people!

TayneMent said...

Would you agree with me that there is a difference between the tastes of the naija men in naija and the naija men in naija. The ones in naija are the ones I am talking about.

Temite said...

Errrr it depends men! It depends.

tunrayo said...

me thinks the typical nigerian male prefers girls with plenty boobs and ass irrespective of her size

Fabulo-la said...

.....

I totally draw a blank on this one...

I think its split down the middle sha...

Kate said...

well...last time i went to naija...the only dudes that i met would've probably taken either fat or skinny as long as they got out of their current situation..lol.

I dunno why naija ppl are so wrapped up in weight..i mean on average,the life expectancy of naija ppl in naija...fat or skinny is lower than ppl in america..fat (not morbidly obese) or skinny.

That being said...i too dont know why ppl in naija are so wrapped up in weight...

MPB nailed it. Naija men like ass and boobs. The size of the frame they are on is negotiable. Especially if she has a small-ish waist.

Tigeress said...

I think most Naija men like fleshy. But there is someone for every one- so no need to change your weight becos of man.

TayneMent said...

@Gee - I was referring to my father, lol

@Temite - hmm..

@tunrayo - seems others are of the same opinion.

@fabulola - lol..yeah different tastes for different men.

@kate - i wish i could understand the obsession too.

@anonymous - seen

@tigeress - yes oh! I don't try to change for a man. I'd just like to be comfortable with where I am weight wise..one day lol
