for u illiterate!s that!s saying that tonto  is from igbo below is little description about her.

Tonto Dike originates from Ikwere, Port Harcourt, in Rivers State. She was born on June 9, 1985 and after her primary and secondary education, she was admitted into Rivers State University of Science and Technology, Port Harcourt, and currently studying Petro-Chemical Engineering, google her profile in other to know more and stop talking rubbish here.

Hold up guy, you know ikwerre whether they like it or not are igbos, you cannot deny your lineage. Its like a Puerto Rican saying his neither spanish  or american, bull crap. Its confused people like you that forgets that tomorrow is pregnant, cuz we both know if something happens to you ikwerre u end up claiming igbo for protection. So just like am an Ngwa(which is largest clan and if anyone should claim a separate identity it should be us cuz our tentaticles span even into  south cameroon) but we know better, because we believe in Igbo mbu Igbo, no matter the clan. We know ikwerre's do this am not igbo crap because of political reasons, but its sad that when people see you names you will always be called an igbo person so go wash your face and look in the mirror again, Ikwerre is an igbo clan, hooha!!!

See how stupid your likes are, you dont finishh reading something and you are here jumping, i beg seat down before i slap you down with my wallet. Yes my family and his family has money to spend more 100 Million Naira on a wedding, dont hate appreciate, the husband wasnt complaining, he did it with pleasure, because no man in his right mind will spend that type of money and still divorce or maltreat  his wife, cuz then he would lose her par igbo custom, because in my part of igbo land if an inlaw maltreats his wife that she has to run back to her family to complain, the IWU ALA, gives the woman's  kins the right to take her back and he can get the bride price back and nothing else. so imagine getting 250knairs out of  over 100Million Naira you spent, person go mad nau. So  you this idiot dont come at me if you dont know how to ready, aturu.

Poster i beg that is cheap, you are lucky the list  had cheap stuff on it. when my sister got married, her husband had to buy a car for the eze of our town( and my sister has never met this eze). Well my sister's husband comes from a well to do background, but he dropped a good 280K euros before the bride price was negotiated, and the funny thing is that the bride price itself  was only 250k naira, but when all was done with the wedding, her husband people had spent a whooping 98.5 million Naira, and my parents on their part spent 3.5 Million Naira  to add to the wedding, so her wedding wasnt cheap at all.  My  Brothers and our kinsmen said to my  sister's husband who by the way is half  ghanian, "Welcome to igbo land, where we dont sell our daughters, we remind you how precious our daughters are by how much you have to suffer  before we allow them to marry you, and if you phyuk up we will warn you the first 3 times, but after that, we have the right to beat the hell out of you and take our daughter back( you can keep any seed from the realtionship), after all we didnt raise her to be maltreated in her own home."

Hi everyone, my name is Hillary Crosley and I'm the journalist behind the D'Banj story. In my chat with D'Banj, he stated that he owned the Mo' Hits label and boasted the house's list of artists, which I included. He neglected to mention that he co-owns the label with Don Jazzy and no one in the Mo' Hits camp reached out to me or the EBONY staff to point that out. However, I contacted their US representative today and she clarified for me that Don Jazzy co-owns the label with D'Banj and we've amended the quote above to include this information. We apologize for any confusion on our parts, thank each of you for your comments and clarification. We appreciate your thoughts and opinions. , scroll down to newest posts on the comment box and you will see it. So its not her fault, she just felt sorry for the guy, plus other pressure on her to amend that portion of the interview.

 Dbanj seems to forget that most of his fame is because of donjazzy, because without donjazzy's master production of his songs  dbanj wouldnt have gotten as big to even see the chance to meet or work with kanye. Dbanj is forgetting their beginnings and their friendship, and betraying the man he calls  brother. Dbanj also has forgotten the interviews he did all over Africa where  he referred donjazzy as the owner and he a partner, nawaooo so see how fame makes people forget that past is the reason for the present. Oh well the best to them.

Quote from: trolling on 26-08-2011 11:43 PM
How can they claim his children as theirs, did the seed come out of them or me,the man carries the name of the family and not a woman or her family.If she wants to be with him,she should forget about their traditions because that tradition is backwards and senseless, to hell with their royalty, royalty comes through the lineage of men not women.If that guys gives in to that senseless tradition that means he doesnt know what it means to be man, but if the guy wants to play their family, he can go ahead and marry their daughter but should keep his distance from them after they get married,but should sit his children,especially his son and educate him about his traditions,how can some people ever think that my children belong to my wife's family,how stupid can that be.By the time I get old, my son would have  become a man that can stand his ground against his mothers senseless traditions.What a bunch of stupid and senseless royals so-called.
lol, its funny, but ashanti's whether royal or not believe that the lineage start with the mother. Every ghana man knows that, atleast i hope they do. Thats why when referring to Ghana its people say mother, not fatherland like Naija. Anyways.. His only issue was that the family insisted that  he recognize that before he jumps into the marriage, because if it doesnt work out, he loses his kids, basically since the girl is royal she has to follow ifs and butts. My friend's dad told the son that if he is gonna insit on marrying on the girl, that he better plan on marrying two wives,but the guy says he needs time to think about. As for her, she said she assumed he knew, since she told him she was royal and ashanti. Everyone loves the girl, she is mad cool, but she was stupid in thinking that since he is an igbo boy born in ghana that he would know ashanti women determine the lineage. But i get where you are coming from.  Anyways Thank you all for the comments. Personally I told him to tell her if he marries her, that he will have to marry another wife, and see how she reacts.
36  Forum / Relationships & Romance / Marriage between tribes of different Lineage..ASHANTI AND IGBO on: 26-08-2011 06:50 PM
 Hi everyone, i need your advice. My friend's brother wanted to marry his ashanti girlfriend of 7years. They have been through the worst together, from college to real world. from break ups to heartbreaks, they have been there for eachother. But he proposed back in february,  and in the igbo culture there is what you call the introduction and that is when the couples introduce eachother to their families. so anways, my friend's brother knew that the girl's father is an ashanti chief back in ghana, so basically the girl is kind of royal.  Well anyways, other than that he didnt know how ashanti martial customs involving children are, until he went to ghana and was told that if he decided to go on ahead and marry this girl, that the children if anything goes wrong, if she dies, if she divorces him, etc, any form of separation, that any child born from that union, automatically belongs to her side of the family, and not his, so he cannot claim the kids. And in Ghana, especially because she is ashanti and of royal lineage, which traces its lineage through the maternal sides, he automatically gives up the right of claiming the kids. So if he died and was divorced or separated at the time, and had children with her, the kids can carry his last name of the mother allows, but the children's identity remain ashanti, not half igbo. And because Ghana traditionally is in many ways ruled by the king( yes ghana is not exactly a democracy, its like uk, except that the king has certain powers in the government in ghana), so the idea of superiority of mothers is embedded in their schema of things. Unfortunately the IGBOs are Patriarchal society.

So when told this, his kinsmen told him to forget the girl and go find another girl to marry, and he is really considering walking away from the 7year relationship because of the tradition.And no when you are african, LOVE is not enough, it doesnt concur everything. Anyways so my uncle happens to be on e of the kinsmen that followed him to ghana for the introduction, and he  also told my friend's brother to walk away and find another girl. So what do you think, should he walk away from her, because of what she cannot control.Its her tradition, and unfortunately she was born royal, so its her fault. The only way she can marry him  and the children remains his is if the King denounces her whole family royal lineage,and banishes her family, which would never happen unless her mother committed an abomination of  against the throne. So that is the story. Many of you might not know but ghanians mixed of Nigeria heritage, ex: Sakordie Obidi, Yvonne okoro, yemi blaq and etc  in many respect do not claim their paternal heritage,like yoruba or igbo,  they claim ashanti. So what do you guys think He should do, walk away? or go ahead and marry her and give up his claim on the children?
37  Forum / Relationships & Romance / Men be careful, some women are just darn deceitful... on: 8-06-2011 07:14 PM
So, a man sued his ex-girlfriend for fraud and emotional distress after she secured a court order demanding he pay child support for their two year-old daughter. The reason? This woman saved his semen after performing oral secks and secretly impregnated herself. No, this is not a new plotline of absurd television show One Tree Hill but actual events that formed the basis of a 2005 legal battle in Illinois.

Although this case is six years old and garnered some media attention at the time, we recently came across it on Professor Jonathan Turley’s blog and couldn’t resist an opportunity to discuss it.

But before we get to the legal issues presented in this case, namely how a man can be ordered to support a child when his sperm was used without his knowledge, the soap opera-esque facts surrounding this situation deserve to be explained in greater detail.* Trust us.

It all began when Dr. Sharon Irons (an internist) and Dr. Richard Phillips (a family practitioner) began dating in January 1999. Dr. Irons led Dr. Phillips to believe she was divorced and within a few months, they became engaged. According to Dr. Phillips, the two discussed the possibility of having children and he made clear his intentions: that he did not want children until after they were married and any pre-marital secks would require the use of condoms. Throughout the course of their relationship, they engaged in only three instances of oral secks: they never went “all the way.”

On one of these intimate occasions, Dr. Irons did something rather remarkable: After fellating Dr. Phillips, she held his semen in her mouth (where it was suitable to sustain viability) and then inseminated herself with it. She did not inform Dr. Phillips of her actions.

Dr. Irons also never informed her boyfriend that she was, in fact, still married. Five months into their relationship, she confessed to Dr. Phillips that she was not divorced and he decided to end their relationship.

Fast-forward to November 2000, when, surprise! Dr. Irons slapped her surely stunned ex-boyfriend with court papers to [email protected] paternity and child support for “their” daughter.

To quote Justice Scalia in 1989’s Michael H. majority opinion (a paternity case also dealing with convoluted family relations, although not as entertaining as here), “The facts of the case are, we must hope, extraordinary.”

Extraordinary they are, indeed. And while Dr. Irons’ act of stashing semen away definitely made for attention-grabbing headlines, the media focused more on the secksy- slash-crazy angle and less on the actual law. We decided to explore the legal claims advanced by the parties and the reasoning behind Dr. Phillips seemingly unjust obligation to support a child whose existence was beyond the realm of expectation.

In his suit, Dr. Phillips alleged the unauthorized use of his semen constituted actionable claims of fraudulent misconception, conversion and intentional infliction of emotional distress. A lower court dismissed these grievances, and he appealed.

The Appellate Court of Illinois found that a fraudulent misconception claim was only available for “economic” wrongs, and so dismissed this claim. (Dr. Phillips was suing for physical and emotional harms he alleged that he’d suffered as a result of Dr. Irons’ actions).

The court next turned its attention to the conversion claim. Conversion is “an unauthorized act that deprives a person of his property permanently or for an indefinite period of time.” The arguments on both sides of the conversion claim are worth noting.

Dr. Phillips argued that his ex-fiancé took his property, his sperm, without his permission to conceive a child. Dr. Irons countered by[..]erting the sperm was a gift: Dr. Phillips delivered it to her with the intention that she keep it because if he really wanted to retain his semen, he would have put on a condom and “kept its contents”.

The court agreed with Dr. Irons: Dr. Phillips cannot claim he was deprived of his property because he did not intend that the semen be returned.

Finally, the court considered Dr. Phillips’ claim of intentional infliction of emotional distress (IIED). To bring an IIED claim, the plaintiff must prove that 1) the conduct was “truly extreme and outrageous”; 2) the defendant had to intend, or be aware that, her conduct would cause severe emotional distress; and 3) the conduct did actually cause severe emotional distress.

The court stated that Dr. Irons’ conduct in deceitfully engaging in oral secks to procure the sperm necessary to impregnate herself would, according to any reasonable person, be considered “extreme and outrageous” conduct (Ed. Note: well, duh).* Considering the nature of Dr. Irons’ actions and Dr. Phillips’ clear expression of not wanting a child out of wedlock, the second element of IIED was met. For the actual distress, Dr. Phillips claimed a whole slew of anguish including nausea, loss of appetite, interference with his profession, insomnia and more, which was enough to keep the case alive.

The final decision or current status of the case is unavailable which means that the case is still being litigated or the parties settled.

Regardless, what confused us most about the case was that the child support obligation on behalf of Dr. Phillips was not contested. How could a father be forced to pay child support if the conception of the child was beyond (way, way beyond) a reasonable person’s expectation?* The court itself stated that the mother’s actions were “extreme and outrageous”, after all.

The answer? Public policy. In a note for the Drake University Law Review, A Man’s Right to Choose: Searching for Remedies in the Face of Unplanned Fatherhood, author Adrienne D. Gross explained the general policy in law of looking out for a child’s best interest in both child support and paternity statutes. Undisputedly, a child’s best interest is to have the financial support of both biological parents, regardless of their marital status, and according to Ms. Gross, “the child should not suffer from a parent’s indiscretion concerning the events leading to conception.”

Basically, if you father a child and the paternity is [email protected], you are on the hook for child support payments. (A father can sue for IIED, if the mother’s actions in the conception meet the requisite level of crazy, but there is no guarantee he will win.)

A 1983 paternity case sheds some light on how New York courts balance the best interest of the child with a father’s dealing with an unwanted pregnancy and child support obligations in unorthodox situations. The father, [email protected] by paternity tests, had been[..]ured that the mother was on birth control.* He alleged fraudulent misrepresentation and argued that he should not be responsible for child support. The court disagreed, and held that fraud and deceit have no bearing on determining child support obligations.

The court explained that the “primary purpose” of New York’s paternity statutes “is to ensure that adequate provision will be made for the child’s needs” and does not allow for the “consideration of the ‘fault’ or wrongful conduct of one of the parents in causing the child’s conception.” If the father really did not want to have a child, despite the woman’s[..]urance that she was on birth control, he should have used a condom during secks.

Decisions like this seem to signal, rather unfairly, we think, that a man can be held legally and financially responsible for any unilateral actions his partner takes to conceive a child, no matter how absurd or unforeseeable those actions are.

And Dr. Phillips seems to have been treated particularly unfairly. He didn’t even have intercourse which is the one and only act that, outside of fertility clinics, can foster a reasonable expectation of conceiving a child.* In fact, without intercourse (and outside of fertility clinics) creating a life is, simply, impossible.* There was no way, short of checking what his partner did with his semen after oral secks (do you know anyone who does that?) that he could have known that he could possibly father a child.

But the courts don’t care about how the egg was actually fertilized: because at the end of the day, there’s a child now involved.* And the concern, from a legal perspective, is whether or not the child will be adequately cared for, regardless of its conception.

Lesson to be learned: If you don’t want any babies, use protection – and make sure your partner isn’t hiding a test tube under the pillow.
38  Forum / Naijapals Base (Metro life) / Your identity-African ancestry Mitochondrial dna verified on: 8-06-2011 04:54 AM
Hi Palies,lol. Ok here is the gist. A few of my nigerian friends brought their african american friends to get tested to find out where they are from. So my five nigerian friends and 5 african Amerians and a jamaican  did the dna test.
 Now my five nigerian friends said they were each 100% igbo, yoruba, edo and hausa, all verified by their parents and languages,etc. So out of the five nigerians 2 were yoruba, one igbo, one edo and one hausa, so when the result came back   last week, the results were as followed..

Igbo before dna=  68% igbo, 32 percent efik after dna
Yoruba 1 before dna=60 percent yoruba, 20 percent fulani, 20 percent igbo
Yoruba 2 before dna= 90 percent igbo, 10 percent efik
edo before=59 percent ishan,21 percent yoruba,20 percent igbo
hausa before=75 percent hausa, 10 percent fulani,15percent yoruba

Now this dna test is believed to be very accurate due to the fact that is based on mitochondrial dna, which unlike any other dna is the strongest... So with these results on people who thought they knew what they were by tribe, were wrong, so  it  begs the question whether our tribal identities are just false security, because as we found out a lot of us were not 100 percent what we claim. So  my friend, yoruba 2 went back to his parents with the results, and in the midst discovered that  his mother  and father are not his biological, so after growing up a yoruba boy and now  at 25 years of age finding out that you belong to another tribe, should that change anything?

What do you folks think, because Personally I think over time our tribal identities will start to fade. And also why must we always claim our fathers' tribe and not recognize our mothers' when asked what tribe we come from, after all the mother's dna is the strongest of the two.
