Nigerian songstress, Ugochi Anosike, popularly known as Ugoccie, has said that there is nothing wrong with women making advances at men.
She made the comment during an interview while recalling how she once asked a guy out and he agreed to date her.
The ‘Do You Really Like Me’ crooner said the relationship worked out well for the period they were together.
Ugoccie said; “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 (laughs).”
The petite singer 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.

Tosin received messages from numerous women, but Tanwa’s own stood out, however, he failed to respond.
She did not give up and abandon mission instead she contacted him again three days later and that was the beginning of a relationship that led to them getting married in 2023.
According to Joro, this is the second couple getting married in 2023 that met through his dating platform ‘Bae’s search’.
Bellanaijaweddings shared the couple’s love story on Instagram.
”Tanwa was scrolling through IG on January 7th, 2021 when she came across an interesting “Joro Olumofin’s bae search” post. A certain young man based in Texas was searching for a lady also based in Texas interested in a serious relationship.
Tanwa wasn’t based in Texas but she still reached out to him via the contact information provided. The young man happened to be ‘Tosin’ and he was a bit slow with his responses because he was overwhelmed with messages from over 200 ladies (yes the post was that captivating 😂). Tanwa then again reached out 3 days later and the boy got hooked,” it read.
