Poster of the Alpha Male

Image
There is no confusion on the definition of the real and true Alpha Male. And there is not need for any essay or thesis on the analysis of an Alpha Male.

Ekenyerengozi Michael Chima with famous Nigerian actress and role model of Dignity, Integrity and Nobility in Corporate Nigeria, Dame Taiwo Ajai-Lycett who taught me the unique qualities of the Alpha Male from when I was only 15.


My poster at the top says it all.

√ He is a faithful Leader.
√ He is not a Liar.
√ He respects and protects women, regardless of class, creed or race.
√ He follows the Golden Rules of Dignity, Integrity and Nobility as the canon of his life.

Any man who cheats and lies can never be an Alpha Male.
Any man who is a bully can never be an Alpha Male.
Any man who cannot protect and respect women cannot be an Alpha Male.
Any man without principles of dignity, integrity and nobility cannot be an Alpha Male.
