Love: An Open Question

By Hakeem Babalola

The word Love is perhaps the most offensive reproach act of expression characterised by physical or psychological maltreatment all over the world. Everywhere, irrespective of location, people abuse and misrepresent a word so capable of granting them the elusive freedom; a word meant to be the hidden treasure of living.

Continent to continent, nation to nation, community to community, family to family, human beings have altered this word called love to the extent of making it unrecognisable. It has been defiled to the extent of losing its original value of existence. Today, talking about relevance, the word love needs more questions than answers. Let’s get started –

The meaning of love: Is it the same in different continents, nations, society, culture, family and so on? The meaning of love: Does it change with the passing of times and, or new inventions? Like many other thing, has technology changed the meaning of love?

What does love depend on? Or is it an island onto itself?

Can love survive without food and drink? Can love grow alone?

Does love based on class, status, money, material things etc.?  Yes, as in the rich loving the rich and the poor loving the poor?

Is unconditional love a realistic or antithesis to the nature of love?

Do parents love their children unconditionally? Do they? Can they? Or, is the love between parent-child exceptional? What makes a parent loves one child more than the other?

In the bible, what makes Rebecca who has two children – Isaac and Jacob – conspired against the former in favour of the latter?  Is it LOVE?

Does it exist: Love at first sight – does it really exist?

Can someone really love a complete stranger? Can a man truly love a lunatic woman or can a woman love a lunatic man already dancing in the market?

Love, does it have stages in life? Can love be developed as you get to know someone or something better? Or is it a black and white thing? Is it either you love or you don’t love?

By nature, is love selfish? Is love about self but pretending otherwise? Do you love someone for who or what they are; or you love them because of yourself?  

What exactly do we mean whenever we say I love you? Is being in love the same as loving someone? Does LOVE cheat?

Who, what controls love: Is it LOVE itself; or those who claim to love each other? Is love created to last forever or is it a temporary thing? What makes love fade? Is it LOVE itself, or those in love?

What is the reciprocal of love? Is it 50/50 as beautifully sung by that legendary singer, Teddy Pendergrass? Or is it 40/60 or 30/70 and so on? Does it actually exist? 50/50 love - Does it exist?

 “I love you,” people often say.  But do they really know the meaning of what they say each time they say it? When we say that I love him or I love her or I love it, do we understand the deep and true meaning of our expression? Or do we say it for saying sake?

The bible describes Love thus: “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonour others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered; it keeps no record of wrongs." – 1 Corinthians 13:4-5

Is the bible position assured regarding today’s love? Today’s LOVE, is it different from yesterday’s LOVE?

Also, the bible always talks about faith, hope and love. And it says out of these, love is the greatest. If it is the greatest, why is it diminishing in value, or why is it always misrepresented and, or abused? Is the world gradually witnessing the death of love – just as marriage is fast going out of fashion?

Does LOVE kill? Does LOVE make you kill? Can love lead to killing? What makes them that profess love for each other result to killing or murdering in some cases?  

I ask again, can love survive on its own? Can love survive without food and drink? Can one hide love? Can love be suppressed? Is it possible for one person to love two, three or more people the same?

Can love be confused with other emotions like infatuation and obsession? Does love really need to be quantified? Like using true love, fake love, unconditional love, and genuine love?

Ha-ha, greater love has no one than this: to lay down one's life for one's friends.  
– John 15:13.

Why then do husband and wife say, “Till death do us part”? Why not “Till we die together”?

How realistic is this in such a materialistic existence as ours: Love thy neighbor as thyself?

If “Love thy neighbor as thyself” is not a realistic proposition, does it then mean human beings are incapable of Love – but pretending?

Can human race eventually benefit tremendously if we do love our neighbours as ourselves?
Love thy neighbor as thyself – Can it lead the human race to grasp the unidentifiable hardships we have created for ourselves? Is loving your neighbor as yourself is the answer to human race tempestuous agony? From leaders to rulers to followers to spouses to lovers –

If the meaning of love sinks deep into our medulla oblongata, will it then be the elusive solution to poverty, robbery, fraud, cheating, greed, manipulation, propaganda, power drunk – and other depressing issues leading us to the pit of ….

Or, is love (be it Storge – empathy bond; Philia – friend bond; Eros – romantic love; Agape – unconditional "God" love) a bond that cannot be explained? Is love meant to be a mystery – beyond human comprehension?

Wike: Media unfriendly
By Odimegwu Onwumere

Image result for WIKE PIOCS
I was with a group of pressmen this January when one of us frowningly said that the government of Governor Ezebunwo Nyesom Wike of Rivers State is not media friendly. I would not have believed the statement if some of Wike’s media aides had not resigned from his government and also, told the world in their resignation letters that Wike invariably hates the media.

One Africa, as Libyan Embassy receives United African Diaspora Hungary

F-Left: Fredrick, Raymond, Khaled, Tadesse, Veanance
“There is one Africa. We are together as brothers and sisters. But for some reasons, the western press always wants to separate us. No black or white Africa. No north, west, east or south. Africa is one”.

Who will replace Dimma’s teeth?
 By Odimegwu Onwumere

Credit to TNN Online
It was the hour when men of goodwill ought to have retired to bed that the deafening noise emerged from Mazi Egede’s house. What I could not ascertain from my house was if the sadistic female voice in the midst of the noise was his mother’s, wife’s or daughter’s voice. The aggressive voice certainly was not for celebration as I had earlier thought because Mazi Egede had formed the habit of partying whenever he sold a piece of land.

Nigerian transports Yoruba culture to Austria & beyond
By Hakeem Babalola

The passion to preserve his native language has inspired Babátó̩lá Aló̩ba to do something in far away Austria where the demand for the Yoruba language is shaping a new thought. His love for language especially his native language plus the love of children has put things in motion for this determined Nigerian man who migrated to Austria in 1971.

Editor's Mail

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & day!

Hello from
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
