Curvy women: What men prefer in 2020!

Why do men like curvy women? Most men when asked are not impressed by those skinny models in magazines that most people see as perfect? It is not a secret that many men prefer a woman with a few extra pounds.

They say women who have more cushion can tend to appear younger- and not just men can agree on that. It seems to ring true that super skinny women can appear older because they do not have plump skin that helps hide wrinkles.

This is according to an online lifestyle magazine The Talko.  The Talko serves 72 million readers worldwide and provides news on product launches, fashion must-haves-plus the biggest hits and misses in the world of health and fitness. Nonetheless, The Talko said women with more flesh can hide their age better and do not appear to have as many fine lines. Who wouldn’t want that? There is nothing more satisfying than hitting a night on the town and being asked to show some I.D because you look young. If having a round wear face with a little more skin does this to you, sign me up!

The blog emphasised that women have been trying forever to find ways to make them stay looking younger and fresh, and lucky for you, you get to save your money because you have that done for you naturally. So instead of standing in the mirror and pulling back that extra skin, embrace it girl because women pay lots of money to look as young as you!A curvaceous babe is a sexy one to a man because she looks just like that: a babe! A woman! In a man’s eye, women are supposed to have curves because they should look more feminine than a man.

The Talko said women should have larger lips, bigger butts, and fuller upper bodies because if they don’t, they look more like a little kid than a sexy woman. And honestly, who wants a woman who is still shopping in the kids section? The same way a woman doesn’t want to be with a man who still shops in the kids section because he is either too short or too skinny, the same goes for women.A woman who is able to show off her beautiful curves in a fitted elegant dress is more appealing to any man. It shows confidence, and you look put together. A woman in a form fitting dress showing off her curves is way more attractive to men.

Further, it was underlined that men have been into curvy women for a long time now, and it still says the same today because they enjoy that classic look. A curvy woman with a body that is noticeable and not too thin or frail is sexy and has been for decades now, making it a thing men continue to get heated over time and time again.Marilyn Monroe was one of the sexiest women of her time, and she was not a seize 2. If you look at celebrities now, it is the curvier types like Kim Kardashian and Beyonce who are making headlines for their shape.

Being model thin is a thing of the past, and no man wants to be with a woman like that. A curvy woman is classic and timeless, whereas stick thin is only a phase. When a man is with his woman, he wants people to be thinking how classic and beautiful she looks, and not have people thinking the opposite. While women might believe the opposite, they might as well think again.While ladies might like their clothes to be a little loose on them- men prefer clothes to fit on their shape, showing off their curves the best way possible. A man likes to see a woman in a fitted dress that emphasizes what she has underneath. The bigger size just makes them look bigger and that’s exactly what men want. Women need to be able to embrace their curve and the only way they can do that is by not being afraid of clothes that show it all off! The second they start wearing clothes that hug them in all the right places, that confidence they gain, everyone else will feel it too.

The Talko also stressed that women who have more meat on their bones tend to look healthier in a man’s eye. She doesn’t look like she’s constantly trying the new fad diet but instead looks well-nourished and happy. And who wants to try the new fad diet anyway? Eating right shouldn’t have to be about trying what’s hot right now, it should be a lifestyle. A diet is temporary, but eating right and embracing the curves you have because of it is for life! Many female athletes, like the Williams sisters, embrace their curvier bodies. Sure, they are constantly active and must live a very healthy lifestyle, but they still aren’t stick thing. And that’s Ok. A curvier woman has curves that are noticeable and isn’t afraid to flaunt them, making her not only healthy on the outside but in the inside, too. Strong is the new sexy.

A woman who has curves and isn’t a stick figure clearly isn’t afraid of eating, and men love that. They don’t usually like going out with a girl who only eats a salad or doesn’t eat at all. Men want a sexy woman who isn’t afraid to get dirty eating a monster burger while downing a craft beer (or three). And who are we kidding? Sometimes we are craving grub and want to sink our chompers into a nice juicy burger. Not every woman likes to eat a salad. And honestly who genuinely enjoys them? It takes longer to make them than to eat them, and the most delicious salads aren’t all that healthy anyway. So live it up and eat whatever it is your body is craving. Now we aren’t saying you should be eating McDonalds every day, Chicken Licken or Debonairs Pizza just because it’s what you want, but there are healthy ways that allow you to indulge. So girl, please start eating or forever be single.

Men are drawn to curvier women because they look more fertile than the skinnier girls. And while they might not be looking to have a kid anytime soon, chances are the time will come and they will want to settle down with the right woman who can bear plenty of children. When that time comes, he knows his curvy gal is the one who will do just that. Your curves are a sign of fertility. What do you think hips were made for? Obviously to support your baby while trying to multitask. Your curves are ready for the greatest gift of all. Have you ever seen a pregnant skinny woman? They look like they are going to fall over. Luckily for you, you will be able to look healthy and natural because your curves support you during this time of your life. Who wants to feel like they will tip over during pregnancy anyway?

When a woman is too thin, she might appear too weak and therefore not able to handle things in the bedroom- or at least that’s what many man tend to think. They want to be gentle with a skinny girl because they are almost afraid of breaking her, but a thicker woman? Now, that’s a woman that can handle getting tossed around on the bed a few times. You wouldn’t want your man to be in his bed the whole time while you two are together, wondering if he pulls a certain move, you’ll break.

A man enjoys a strong woman both inside and outside of the bedroom, and your curves prove just that. Intimacy is supposed to be natural, seamless, and if he isn’t afraid of hurting you, the better your time in the bedroom will be! Really, I don’t see anything wrong with that.

The King’s journal 

23rd November 2021
Kgafela Kgafela II

This book is a true-life story of an African King based in South Africa. The Last Frontier is a resistance stand by Bakgatla Ba Kgafela tribe and its line of Kings from 1885 against a dark force called ‘western democracy’ that is insidiously destroying lives, peoples, nations and threatens to wipe away whole civilizations in Africa.

The story flows through four important episodes of history, beginning in about 1885 when Bechuanaland Protectorate was formed. This section briefly reveals interactions between Kgosi Linchwe 1 and the British Colonial Government, leading to the establishment of Bakgatla Reserve by Proclamations of 1899 – 1904.

The second episode deals with Kgosi Molefi’s interaction with the British Colonial Government in the period of 1929-36. The third episode records Kgosi Linchwe II’s interactions with the British Colonial Government and black elites of Bechuanaland. It covers the period of 1964-66, leading to Botswana’s independence. Kgosi Linchwe ii resisted the unlawful expropriation of his country (Bakgatla Reserve) by Sir Seretse Kgama’s government of 1966 to no avail. He wrote letters of objection (December 1965) to Her Majesty the Queen of England, which are reproduced in this book.

The fourth episode covers the period between Kgafela Kgafela II’s crowning as King of Bakgatla in 2008 to 2021. It is a drama of the author’s resistance to the present-day Botswana Government, a continuation of Bakgatla Kings’ objection against losing Bakgatla country to the Kgama dynasty assisted by the British Government since 1885. The story is told with reference to authentic letters, documents, and Court records generated during the period of 1885-2019. There is plenty of education in history, law, and politics contained in The Last Frontier for everyone to learn something and enjoy.

Gospel concerts make a comeback

16th November 2021
Bishop Benjamin Dube

Hailed for being the prime gospel concert after the Covid-19 pandemic had put events to a halt, Golden Relic, in conjunction with Sweet Brands, recently unveiled the Arise and Worship Concert, Botswana. The show marks the return of worshippers and fans to enjoy music and worship together after what seemed like “cooler box” events were taking over the entertainment scene. 

The concert to be held on December 11th 2021, at the Molapo Showcase, has a packed lineup with the Headlining acts being Bishop Benjamin Dube, Lebo Sekgobela from South Africa and Botswana’s very own Obakeng Sengwaketse. More international acts from Nigeria and Ghana are also expected to grace the event. The show organizers have invested an effort in diversifying the lineup with live performances. 

The promoter of the Arise and Worship Concert, David “DVD” Abram revealed in an overview of the event that; “We have lost a lot of loved ones this year, and when that happens, one’s spirit goes down, and we need a light to ground us once more, to heal our souls. Therefore, the two main purposes of this event are to do the work of God and, secondly, to make sure that we nurture and develop talent in Botswana. With challenges that come up with events of such magnitude, the team and I have been committed to seeking guidance from God through having night prayers.” 

Abram added that as promoters, they usually have a bias towards already established artists, thus neglecting the upcoming ones and wanting to change that. “We approached the Melody Gospel TV Show since we aim at nurturing new talent and agreed on having one of the winners as a headliner for the event to allow them to share the stage with gospel giants so that they are exposed to the industry. This resulted in securing the Second Winner of the Melody Gospel TV show; Thabiso Mafoko as a local headlining act.”

The concert also aims at celebrating a Motswana. Multi-Award Winner; with the most recent title; BOMU Best Traditional Gospel under his belt, also best known for his soulful voice and heartfelt lyrics, Obakeng Sengwaketse enthusiastically said, “I want to thank the organizers of the Arise and Worship concert, it means a lot to me after recently winning two awards that are currently the highlight of my career.

I regard this as a great revival because the Covid-19 pandemic has muffled events such as this. I am looking forward to sharing the stage with the great Bishop Benjamin Dube, Lebo Sekgobela and more artists from Nigeria and Ghana. Sengwaketsi urged Batswana to come and witness the greatness of the Lord as their lives will never be the same.”

Tickets are selling like fat cakes with VVIP tickets having only five tickets remaining; the VVIP tickets include rounder access backstage to all the performing artists. The event will also comprise a seated Gold Circle Ticket, which accounts for 50% of revellers to allow for easier enforcement of COVID-19 protocols and avoid a potential stampede.

In a bid to entice merrymakers to buy tickets, the promoters have come up with a layby strategy and buying tickets on an instalment basis for the attendees to be able to buy their tickets since the COVID-19 Pandemic has left many Batswana in financial ruin but having the interest to attend the event.

Fame vs Mental health

9th November 2021
Lizibo

One can only imagine what is like being in the public eye. It is not a walk in the park; and not as easy as people might think it is because of the pressure from the public. Celebrities or influencers are perceived to be perfect, perfect bodies, perfect families, perfect parents, financially stable, healthy, and always smiling and patient with everyone – Is this for real?

However, when people’s expectations of celebrities are not met, the same celebrities are often victimized, body shamed, or blamed, fairly or unfairly. As a result of them not having a personal life, they are often scrutinized in all aspects of their lives; their lives are aired for the public to see and judge. Celebrities are often extra careful about everything that they do, they have to go an extra mile as compared to how ordinary people live their lives.

To understanding this experiences by public figures, this reporter made a case study of Mr Lizibo Gran Mabutho, the firstborn in his family with only one sibling, his younger brother. Lizibo describes himself as a simple Kalanga guy who was chosen by music and did not choose music.

He said being raised by his mother and grandmother, he grew up surrounded by music from birth. Lizibo said his grandmother was a religious person who held church services at their house in Zwenshambe, “for me singing was from Monday to Sunday. I was not like any ordinary child who only sang at church on Sundays or sometimes in school assembly, for me it was a daily thing. My mother was also a talented dancer in our village that is what I mean when I say I did not choose music, but music chose me.”

Lizibo said though he grew up surrounded by music, it was hard for his parents to accept the path he has chosen to be a musician. Lizibo said he had to prove to his parents that music was his passion and that it could pay the bills like any other profession. He said eventually they saw his passion for music and supported him.

Lizibo said being exposed to music from a tender age made him venture into the music career from a tender age. He said he was part of the Kgalemang Tumediso Motsete (KTM) choir, Lizibo said being in the public eye for the longest time has taught him that he is living for the people and that he does not have a life. He said the very society that is watching him has so much expectation for him and that means he has to conduct himself in a good manner because people are looking up to him.

Lizibo said he understands the saying that great power comes with great responsibility, “when people see me, they see a role model. I realize and understand that people are and have been modelling me even when I was not aware of it, I know of six mothers who have named their sons after me because they felt that I inspire them somehow.”

He said he has accepted his fate that he will never have a normal life because people are looking unto him. He said he is grateful to be in the public on a positive note by bringing hope to the people because he has always wanted to be part of people’s solutions and not their problems.

He said, “people should understand that our careers are our calling. One needs to be spiritually connected to their calling as an artist. The most rewarding part about being in the public for me is not about payment but about being the solution to someone’s problem.”

Lizibo said the greatest challenge that he has ever faced about being in the public eye has been the issue of trust, not able to know which friends are genuine and which ones are not. He said as a way of avoiding fake friends he has always kept his four close friends who have been there for him through thick and thin. Lizibo said being close to his family has also helped him as they have been his strength when things were not going well for him, “most of the time people say we change when we taste fame. That is not necessarily true because people are the ones who changed when we became famous. People always want something from us, nothing is ever genuine with people and that is why I chose to keep my circle very small.”

Lizibo said as much as he travels a lot because of the nature of his work because it is naturally demanding, he said he always ensures that he creates time for his family. He said that at home he is Lizibo who is sent to do errands, he is Lizibo the son, not a celebrity.

He said there is a lot of pressure that comes with being in the spotlight, “the public puts so much pressure on us mostly about the material lifestyle they portray us to have. We are often compared with South African celebrities, but people fail to understand that we are two different countries. Most people fell into the trap and are living above their means resulting in them living in debt. I often tell youngsters not to fall into that trap of being tempted to live life above their means.”

The advice Lizibo gave to upcoming celebrities was that they should know that being in the public is not about them, but it is about the people. He said, “one of my mentors once asked me if I make music about myself or the people. He said I need to make music for the people because it is my responsibility to feed them with what they need, he said they might not even be able to know that they have a need but that I need to identify that need and meet it. Our responsibility is to serve people what they need, our music is to feed people’s hunger. My music is about love, I feed people love.”

Lizibo said it is important for celebrities to seek counselling and take care of their mental health, he said he has been investing in his mental health for years because he understands the importance of mental health especially when one is in the public.
