My Wife Saved My Life - Kanu Nwankwo.

Football legend, Nwankwo Kanu has recalled the day his wife Amara saved his life and then nursed him back to health.

After putting their three children to bed, the Arsenal legend and his wife were about to go to sleep, but the former striker’s hammering heartbeat was keeping Amara awake.





She recalls:
“His heartbeat sounded much louder than normal. I was listening to his chest and it sounded odd.”
More than a decade earlier, Kanu had needed lifesaving open-heart surgery after being diagnosed with a heart valve defect.Amara, 30, couldn’t shake the niggling feeling that was something wasn’t quite right and insisted her husband get it checked immediately.

Kanu, now 40, says:
“She was saying I should go for a check-up so I took her advice.”
And Amara, who runs an interior design business, was proved right because experts told him there was further damage to his heart and he urgently needed a second operation.

It was the same faulty valve,” she says.
“It was like a ticking time bomb. It’s just one of those things we were lucky to find out.”

Not only did she save his life, Amara also nursed him back to health and has now written a book called Healthy Living with Amara Kanu, inspired by her battle to get her husband back on his feet.

Nollywood actress and single mother of one, Uche Ogbodo has come for her colleague, Monalisa Chinda Coker over her stand on domestic violence!

Last week, Monalisa granted an interview saying "Women should also be blamed for domestic violence".

Not happy with her opinion Uche Ogbodo took to her Instagram page to air her view. According to her, it can never be a woman's fault.

She wrote:
First of all, society looks down on women who stay in abusive relationships and pities them for being “helpless” and “weak.” Domestic violence victims can’t be categorized into a stereotype, but range among all types of women. Yet society places a specific insecure, weak, vulnerable woman into the category of most likely to be in an abusive relationship.

Rather than ridicule or punish the man who commits the abuse, this wrong perception will fault the woman for putting up with it because she possesses these negative traits. Women are taught that it is our personality "traits" th…
