Nigerian lady reveals why her bride price must be paid into her bank account

A Nigerian lady has taken to Twitter to reveal why her bride price must be paid into her bank account. Her demand goes a long way from traditional which sees that uncles and relatives of a bride receive the bride price and share it amongst themselves.

However, the lady in question sets to break from the norm. According to her, her uncles were not there when she was going through hell in the relationship, so therefore they don’t deserve to take the bride price which she believes should be paid into her account.

  7. Since no one was there when she was going through hell in the relationship as she claims . she might as well move in freely with the guy without acknowledging any one in her family after all it is her life. The purpose of bride price other than honoring your parents and respecting tradition is to also show that you belong and come from a family with values. since she is set to deny that fact she should just move in without bride price and enjoy heaven in marriage after going through hell in the relationship as compensation to herself.

  8. How much is even the bride price self, this is tradition and there is blessing and joy in it. She claimed to pass through hell in the relationship is that the end of the road?

  26. There is nothing you won’t hear as the world is gradually winding up. Bride price was never a lady’s business

  28. this one weak me ooo
    Na you born yourself, you better go and look for an elderly man or woman to tell you the implications

  29. Wonderful. She has to allow her relatives have a share in her bride wealth for her to get their blessings which is very important. I hope somebody advises her on the way forward.

  32. I understand her point, but this is Nigeria where some persons want to reap where they did not sow
    Especially some wicked uncles

  39. Hahaha funny girl, I dey with you biko. But no let your papa hear oo. It’s tradition my dear and we can’t change it. So allow ur uncles get their dues right.

  40. Actually, she alone passed through the relationship and secured it but that’s not enough reason her bride price will be paid into her bank account

  41. According to her, her uncles were not there when she was going through hell in the relationship, so therefore they don’t deserve to take the bride price which she believes should be paid into her account.

  42. See serious matter! Well, if her reasons are that, her uncles were not there when her parents were training her, that’s understandable. You can’t eat your bride price girl, it’s never done.

  43. Nigerian women and money
    Traditionally things are being done that way, your bride price must be shared amongst your kinsmen not necessarily paying it into your personal account

  46. It is truth that no uncles were there when she was going through hell in her relationship but at the same time tradition must be obey

  47. This babe no serious at all. Tradition is tradition. She doesn’t have a say. It has always been like that

  48. this is abomination my dear, it’s not done anywhere!! no matter what happened in your relationship and no matter what your uncles did to you. forgive.

  49. Probably she saw herself tru life befor meeting the main man to marry her so she deserves to chop her bride price herself

  50. There is more that you she don’t understand about bride price, to her knowledge she thinks its her uncle that receive and share the money, not knowing that is goes round the whole village with happiness, so that in future she can participate in all functions at any time and level, and if she needs help and advice in future and maybe her uncles are no more, she is 100% free to talk to those she trust or the village head for advice…
