We can’t date guys that bleach — Women

I don’t like guys who bleach their skin; it is a turn off for me. I see no reason why a guy should bleach his skin. I prefer natural fairness. I wouldn’t mind dating a light- skinned guy, as long as his skin tone is natural and not artificial. — Omolabake Lawal I’m not one that is picky; I wouldn’t mind dating a guy that is light-skinned. What matters to me is his attitude and temperament. But I can never date a guy who bleaches his skin. — Damilola Oladimeji

Everyone should appreciate his or her skin colour. Why would a guy want to bleach his skin? It sounds strange to me. A guy who bleaches his skin ends up looking scary. I think skin bleaching is totally wrong. — Adana Ohakwu Skin bleaching is disgusting and nasty. It is also very unhygienic. I don’t think I can ever date a guy who bleaches his skin. I’m against skin bleaching. However, I don’t mind dating a guy who is light-skinned, as long he doesn’t bleach his skin. — Ayishat Ajidagba I think skin bleaching is disgusting, why shoul…

Men who use bleaching cream:Women like light-skinned men, we bleach to attract them

MOTUNRAYO JOEL in this two-part series writes about the growing craze for bleaching among Nigerian men and the reasons why such men try to lighten their skin Twenty-three-year-old Segun Ogunlude’s skin is a sight to behold. It is dotted by dark patches and small reddish blotches that easily identify him as one of the growing number of male Nigerians who bleach their skin. “I was dark-skinned some years back and I didn’t like it,” Ogunlude, a transporter who said he started skin bleaching three years ago, said. “Now that I’m much lighter, I feel good. In fact, I don’t joke with my skin. I have my bath at least twice a day and I use a particular bleaching cream and it works like magic. My skin feels smooth and looks toned,” he said. A general physician, Dr. Kunle Ogunyomi, defines skin bleaching as a cosmetic procedure that aims to lighten dark areas of skin or achieve a generally paler skin tone. Several studies have shown that bleaching is dangerous. But Ogunlude said he would not st…

Giggs quits Man United after 29 years

Ryan Giggs has left Manchester United after 29 years with the club as a player and coach. Giggs joined United in 1987 as a 14-year-old and went on to make more than 1,000 first-team appearances in all competitions after his debut in 1991 before becoming the club’s assistant manager. During his playing career, Giggs won the Premier League title on 13 occasions, four FA Cups, four League Cups, nine Community Shields, a pair of Champions League crowns, a UEFA Super Cup, an Intercontinental Cup and a FIFA Club World Cup. He spent a brief spell as interim player-manager in 2014 after the dismissal of David Moyes and then took on an assistant manager role under Louis van Gaal after retiring from the playing ranks.
Sky Sports News reported last month that Giggs was keen to become a manager in his own right and he confirmed that in an open letter to supporters on Saturday. New United boss Jose Mourinho was prepared to offer Giggs a role in his new-look coaching staff but it would not have be…

Bomb scare: Soldiers, policemen guard Computer Village

No fewer than 100 soldiers and police officers were on Saturday evening sighted keeping watch at Nigeria’s largest computer market, the Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos State. SUNDAY PUNCH learnt that the Acting Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, ordered the deployment of the security personnel after the Department of State Services uncovered a plot, on Friday night, to bomb the market. “The number of soldiers and police officers within and outside the market has risen from about 50 in number on Saturday morning, to more than 100 by this (Saturday) evening,” a trader said told our correspondent  on phone.
The trader, who simply identified himself as Nonso, however, said that the presence of the soldiers had led to the harassment of passers-by, traders and unsuspecting customers, as well as threats of arrests from the security agents. “With these harassments and threats by the soldiers and police officers, the roads around the market suddenly became calm, when compared to …

Germany Beat Italy In Euro 2016 Quarter Final

Germany had to endure a long stretch of penalties as they defeated Italy 6-5 in the third quarter final match of the Euro 2016 championship.
The game had ended 1-1 after 120 minutes of football.
Mesut Ozil broke the deadlock in the second half but the Germans’ lead lasted few minutes as Jerome Boateng’s handball in the box gave Italy a penalty which was well converted by Leonardo Bonucci.
The quality of their penalties were, however, not particularly good.
Thomas Mueller, Mesut Oezil and Bastian Schweinsteiger all missed for Germany while Simone Zaza, Graziano Pelle, Leonardo Bonucci and Matteo Darmian missed for Italy.
Germany goalkeeper, Manuel Neuer, who was voted Man of the Match, said; “I have never experienced a shoot-out like this. I think most of the Italians just aimed into the middle.
“The 1-1 score we conceded during regular time was a bit unlucky. But I believe we were the better side and are deservedly through to the semi-finals.”
The total of 18 penalties ties the record…
