A few years ago, you would never find any self respecting television fan confiding in anyone that one of the shows that they were ardent fans and viewers of was one that was written, conceived, acted, produced and acted in the cradle of life (read Africa)….an African Television show was another name for low quality, poor props, boring characters and predictable plots and storylines.

If you’re single, it’s hard not to be jealous of all the loved-up couples that seem to be everywhere. But there’s no need to mope around eating ice cream on the sofa. Join us in celebrating the reasons why it’s AWESOME to be single on the international day of love.

1. Lack of love? Less costs

Like most days of giving Valentine’s Day is not cheap, with the UK public alone spending an estimated £880 million in 2012. However, it’s one of the few days in which it’s beneficial to be single.
