I remember those trips to the market. Walking to the section where the chicken sellers converged. But before we even got there, you could smell them. And hear them too. The chickens, I mean … not the sell–
Oh, never mind!
Finally, we would see them jammed together in cages. They always looked like there were too many of them there in a cage. But, we would pick the ones we wanted, and depending on the “plan” for that day, the person selling the chicken could slaughter them, remove the feathers and clean them for a fee. Or we could take them home and you know … do the same thing. Except that we didn’t get paid. Obviously.
Afterwards, we would season and cook the chicken. More often than not, it would be made into some kind of stew. And then, came the moment of truth:
Who ate what part?
For the children, we didn’t get to choose. We got all the weird parts like the chicken wings, etc. One of my aunties loved eating the head and the hands (or are they legs?)
But, hands down, the person who usuallyate the chicken head was my father. No controversy. It just was. Why? Because he was the head of the family. End of story.
We did not have to make the same decision if we bought that imported chicken/turkey (the frozen one) because the head was always missing, along with other vital parts that Nigerians consider delicacies. And I realized that the same thing happens here in the US too.
You walk into a grocery store and more than likely, the chicken is already wrapped in clear plastic. No head in sight. In fact, some kids who grew up here apparently don’t even know what a real chicken looks like or where it comes from.
No, kids! Chickens are not raised in Wal-Mart!
I guess, if you take that into consideration, then you can understand why seeing a whole tilapia fish would freak out some cashiers. They’re so used to seeing just parts of the chicken AFTER processing (e.g. chicken breast and wings) and have no idea how a chicken goes from live animal to seasoned, cooked and nestling among vegetables on your plate.
Just as with other aspects of Nigerian culture (depending on what part of the country you’re from), eating certain parts of an animal depends on seniority, family taboos, etc. It makes me wonder how much of these cultural beliefs and traditions are passed on to the next generation, and which ones are lost in translation, so to speak. Kind of like that coconut water myth.
I haven’t laid eyes on a chicken head in years, but believe me, I have no desire to eat it. Drumsticks, thighs and breast meat are good enough, thank you!
Your turn: Who ate the chicken’s head in your family? Was there any particular method for deciding who ate what part? Please share.

To change or not to change your last name is the first big question a new bride faces after walking down the aisle. Your name is the “brand” you have been associated with since birth! It represents you, it’s your family name, and it’s how you are known publicly. If a long lost friend were trying to find you online they would use your name to search for you. If you’ve worked in your career for many years it’s how you are known. If you’ve created a “name” or “following” for yourself as an author, journalist, artist or musician it’s your calling card.
In a world where Google has become a verb and the divorce rate is climbing over 50% changing your name when getting married is a thought- provoking move. Here are the tales of 4 women who took 4 different approaches to the last-name question:Meet Kirsten Vernon (formerly Dixson).
Amy Elizabeth Conley is the mother of twins and the wife of Bill. She always disliked her short, maiden name of “Dow” so when she became a Mrs. she said, “I didn’t even think twice about changing my name.” Amy had already been at her job for nearly 6 years when she married. She planned to stay indefinitely at her job because it enabled her to live the live she envisioned as a working mom. Amy said, “I didn’t think about the long-term implications of changing my last name.”
Remember Mr Obinna Ugwuoke from Ebonyi state, who temporarily went insane after discovering that his wife gave birth to conjoined babies fused at the stomach at First Covenant Hospital in Satellite Town, Lagos on the 8th of May 2017, the conjoined twins have undergone a successful surgery in India involving 22 specialists, according to reports.
Many women today endure marriage rather than enjoy it. The man that was once head-over- heels in love with them, later begins to feel like a total stranger to them. As far as many of these women are concerned, their man is the problem. He is the one that must change and in search for the solutions to their marital problems, they move from one prayer house to another, praying all manners of prayers and taking all manners of counsel from both qualified and unqualified quarters, sadly, often times to no avail.
The truth is, over the years, I have come to discover that nobody has the power to change any other person other than themselves. The only way to change others is to change ourselves. For most of these women, the key to changing their husbands is changing themselves. It has been said that one of the definitions of madness is to keep doing things the same way but yet expect different results. To get a better result other than you have been getting in your marriage, you must learn to do things differently.
Your s*x Life
Many women need to know how important s*x is to a man and to the survival of their marriage. Many have lost their husbands because they are not up and doing in bed. They are always developing headaches and giving one excuse or the other every time their man turns to them for s*x. And many of those husbands have innocently fallen into the hands of hungry women who are ready to give them more than they desire, that which their legal wives are always denying them. Is that the situation with you? If yes, then you will have to change. The way God made a man, s*x is the most important thing to him in marriage. In fact, the first reason why he married you is so that he can have it when he wants it, and no matter what you do for him and on his behalf, if he cannot have it when he desires it, he sees you as not fulfilling your marital obligation to him.
The urge for s*xual satisfaction comes before every and anything else in a man’s life. This is unlike a woman, who has s*x as the last thing on her mind. He does not just see s*x as pleasure, he sees it as something he cannot do without; something that is paramount to his survival in life. That is why he cannot but turn to another woman when the one that should help him in fulfilling this urge is not forth coming. As a wife you must know that the health of your s*x life is directly proportionate to the health of your marriage. The way to a man’s heart they say is his stomach, but I have discovered that this is not the absolute truth. To me, the way to a man’s heart is under your skirt. That sounds dirty but it’s the truth. When a man has a wife who is ‘alive sexually’ to him, he will do everything and anything for her. There are homes that are surviving in spite of the fact that the woman of the house is not a good cook.
All they have to do is to make sure a good cook is employed and a wise woman in such situation makes sure she employs a man and not a woman as her cook so as to make sure she does not create a crack in her marriage. But the role of s*xual fulfillment is such that a woman cannot employ another to fulfill. That is why every woman must make it her priority if she wants to keep her man. And the truth is, no matter what your opinion is concerning your husband, there are a thousand and one women out there who will be so glad to help you in fulfilling this role. So, my advice is, don’t be slack.
