When I was growing up in Nigeria - and I shouldn’t say Nigeria, because that’s too general, but in Afikpo, the Igbo part of the country where I’m from - there were always rites of passage for young men. Men were taught to be men in the ways in which we are not women; that’s essentially what it is.

I think my wife understood from the day I met her how important she was to me and how important it was for me becoming a husband and a father.
