That awkward moment when you get home and find your mum apologizing to your ex on your behalf.

How involved should a mum be in her daughter's relationship? Temi's mum has no boundary in episode 3 of the much talked about 'Before 30' TV show.

The show which just aired its third episode on Sunday, April 12, on Africa Magic Urban, is one show that gets better with each episode.

Before we go into the hilarious and interesting episode three, check out 7 things you should know about episode 1 and 2;

  • ‘Before 30’ is about four ladies, their relationships and the pressure they go through to get married ‘Before 30’, and their stories are told through the eyes of Temi Coker played by Damilola Adegbite (through voice over).

  • Nkem played by Beverly Naya, is the sexy, go-getter and career woman. In episode one, she boldly walked up to a hot stranger she met at a wedding. (Yes... she is a "if he isn't making the move, then do it" kind of lady).

  • Ama played by Anee Icha, is the sweet and cheerful 24-year old banker, who is playful by nature. She is also the youngest of the four ladies.

  • Aisha played by Meg Otanwa, is married to a very protective man. Sheriff played by Patrick Diabuah, is the kind of husband who loves to be in control of everything his wife does.

  • Temi's boyfriend of four years, Ayo played by OC Ukeje, broke up with her because 'She is obsessed with marriage'.

  • Temi has 1 year, 10 months and six days to find another Ayo who is ready to put a ring on her finger, because, she has to get married ‘Before 30’.

  • Temi meets a new guy, David played by Gideon Okeke, things get pretty hot between the two. But, turns out David is a 'mummy's boy', (should that be an issue?).

Episode 3 Recap.

As earlier stated, the show gets better with each episode.

  • Temi wants to end the relationship with David.

Temi wakes up thinking of how to break up with the new boyfriend, David (What happened to "I will be damned if I don't get married 'Before 30'?)

  • Temi's mum likes David, and is interested in their sex life.

It turns out Temi's mum (Tunbosun Aiyedehin) likes David, and is already asking about marriage plans.

Temi says she won't be the one to propose to her self, 'but you should facilitate it. That's what ladies do,' her mum replied.

Then she asks the weird question, 'do you satisfy him the other way ( sexually).? (OMG).

  • Aisha's husband doesn't touch her whenever she is on her period.

Temi isn't the only one with issues. Turns out Aisha's husband, Sheriff, doesn't touch her when she is on her period, he doesn't even hold hands with her.

How do you deal with such a problem? According to Temi, you simply teach him a lesson by denying him sex whenever he is in the mood.

  • Ama lied to her new boyfriend about her virginity.

Move over to Ama who has a new guy in her life. The thing is, she lied to him about her virginity. According to Ama, she has had sex only once and that was six years ago.

  • Temi and David are officially 'just friends'.

Temi finally broke up with David (what happened to keeping the great guys?), who accepted it, and accepted to be just friends with her.

Temi doesn't want her mum finding out about the breakup so, she asks him not to tell her mum.

  • Temi's mum isn't giving up on David.

When you want your daughter married before 30, you don't give up on any good guy she introduces to you. Temi's mum asks about David, and she finally tells him they are over.

As expected, she got hysterical. Temi tells her mum she did the breaking up (Like that can calm a desperate mum down).

Mum wants to know if there was cheating, Temi says Yes, claiming that she cheated on David.

  • Temi's Mum invites David over, kneels to plead on behalf of her daughter.

This has to be the most interesting part of the episode. That moment you get home and find your mum apologizing to your ex on your behalf.

So, Temi's mum invited David and started her "I know my daughter wronged you. She told me she cheated on u" speech.

Surprised David decided to play along, and then she did the unexpected, she KNELT down to apologize to David (you can count on Temi's mum to be a source of OMG moments).

David said Temi should be the one apologising . She got up and asked Temi to kneel down and apologise to him.

David whose day got better, decided to have fun, and told Temi's mum that not only she did go astray once, but with different people.

  • Temi's advice worked for Aisha.

Aisha followed Temi's advice and didn't have sex Sheriff. He later apologised by writing "I'm sorry" on the mirror, and they made up (guess Aisha has found her weapon against Sheriff).

  • Ama's new man broke up with her.

Ama told her new boyfriend the truth about her virginity, and he broke up with her. The episode ended with 589 days later.... (Whatever that means, we are excited about the next episode).

There are so many topics to discuss from episode, but, let us focus on Temi's mum. She made us laugh, frown, sigh and scream OMG.

How involved should a mother be in her daughter's relationship? Was she right or wrong to have invited David over to apologise on behalf of her daughter Temi?
