The much-anticipated lifestyle television series ‘Better-half’ talk show was launched on September 19, in Lagos to plug the knowledge gap in lifelong relationship building.

Better-half show is a non-religious and non-ethnic platform which seeks to critically analyse and address issues affecting married people and their counterparts in relationships leading to marriage. Its uniqueness lies in active participation by renowned relationship experts, discussants and a diverse audience mix setting the stage for robust exchange of ideas to build sustainable relationships.

Renowned relationship counsellor Godman Akinlabi, popularly known as PG, will double as host of the Better-half series. He said, “Official statistics vastly understate the rate of failed relationships in Nigeria because separated couples often do not publicise their status. Many marriages face challenges, but if we can get singles to look at the right things and factors before making marriage commitments, the level of marriage success will increase.

Akinlabi holds a special Twitter event every Friday with the hashtag #MrMrsBetterHalf. The conversation shares practical tips on building Godly relationships, and has featured on the top 100 British “trending topics” on Twitter. Better-half show is an offshoot of the digital conversation.

Meka Olowola, Managing Partner of branding and reputation management outfit Zenera Consulting and sponsor of the TV series, said: “We’ve done extensive work around tackling the scourge of drug abuse and helping vulnerable and displaced children over the past few years.

However, we’ve realised that social vices have their roots in dysfunctional families. So, the most proactive strategy is to lay the foundation for sustainable relationships that will breed individuals responsible to themselves and society; hence our sponsorship of this event.”
