Uzo Njoku, a visual artist who moved to America when she was seven, stated this on Saturday, January 14, 2023, after her partner said he would introduce her to his parents as an “entrepreneur” rather than tell them she’s an artist.
According to her, she grew up trying to defend her profession, and it’s tiring that she has to do the same for potential in-laws.
“This guy was talking about introducing me to his parents. I asked what would you tell them my occupation is? He said an entrepreneur. I asked why not an artist and he told me to be serious. Like I get how close minded some people are, but there is no way you can be my partner if you’re ashamed to tell people I’m an artist.” She wrote.

In other news, Nigerian singer, Ugochi Anosike, popularly known as Ugoccie, has reassured ladies that there is nothing wrong with making advances at men.
Ugoccie shared this during an interview while recalling how she once asked a guy out and he agreed to date her.
According to her, the relationship worked out well for the period they were together.
In her words;
“I have told someone that I liked him before. I told him because most of the time people have this notion that if a lady walks up to someone and says she likes him, she is cheap. If one doesn’t tell a guy about his feelings, how is the guy supposed to know?
It is not always in the place of a man to make approaches. I feel every lady should walk up to a guy and express her feelings. If any guy turns me down, it is fine, at least I tried. I once asked out a guy who did not say no and the relationship worked. However, the guy and I are no longer together.”
She also revealed that she once gave a guy some money she was supposed to give to her family.
“At that point, my family needed the money. I had absolutely no reason to give the money to that guy. The guy and I are not together anymore,” she said.
