We might be about celebrating and uniting African women but that doesn’t mean we hate men. We don’t. We love and appreciate our African men and are grateful for their support. One other thing we love about these men is their good looks and chiselled bodies. These qualities make us drool. We drool at them on any given chance, in magazines, on TV and wherever we see them! To tame a bit of that drooling, once a month one of Africa’s fine sons will be featured as ‘Hunk of The Month’. Tall, short, dark , light, handsome with a great personality are some of the endless qualities that women look for in a man. Baring that in mind, we will endeavour to find those men for your ……

Drum roll please – The first to feature in our HoTM is Nigeria’s very own Ebuka Obi-Uchendu. The easy-going lawyer is also a television personality. The 6ft 2in Ebuka hit the lime light when he took part in the first series of Big Brother Africa where he finished in eighth place but earned him a massive following thanks to his laid back ways. But what glued most people to that series of  Big Brother is his affairs with two of his house mates Helen and Francisca.

Not very much is known about Ebuka’s personal life but what we know is that he is currently a regular contributor for an online publication known as 360Nobs and a columnist for Y! FrontPage. Earlier this year the producers Rubbin’ Minds, a popular TV talk-show for young Nigerians announced him as the new host of the show.

In 2012 in the journal, Nature Communications researchers reported that, “Men with high levels of the sex hormone testosterone are seen as more hunky — and these same men have stronger immune responses. The findings suggested that women may be attracted to manly facial types because the macho look signals good health.

How about it ladies, could that be  true? And if it is, where does Ebuka stand?
