Lady Calls For Reduction Of Bride Price, “It’s So High”

A lady only identified as Igwe Munachimso has caused quite a storm when she called for bride price reduction in the southeast of Nigeria after her brother married from Benue state with less than UGX500,000.

The lady said it is important for bride price to be reduced in Igboland. Munachimso made the disclosure on Twitter. She also shared a list of basic requirement her brother was asked to provide for the traditional marriage. All these were less expensive, prompting her to call for the same in her own father’s land.

She wrote:

“But alas alas our marriage requirement is very high na alaIgbo. See what my brother spent to marry a wife from Otuko, Benue state. All no reach 50K. We need to adjust.”

However, netizens got really worked up and had to descend on the comment section to share their thoughts.

@eduagbo wrote: “Ask you brother if his wife still get single younger sister pls... Very important!”

@talk2middle commented: “Leave us in peace. U can go and marry there too. Pls.”

@Nemzolee commented: “Who no get money should go and marry in benue na. “Marrying a woman is not a “compulsory full payment. There are the most important ones and there are also less important ones. Do the ones wey dem important and you’re good to go. Na who wan do party dey spend money na.” 


In other news, Kenyans had a field day on various social media platforms after photos from a traditional wedding  locally known as Ruracio surfaced online. From the photos making rounds on social media, the in-laws tasked the man to find his bride from a group of girls whose faces were fully covered in masks. The planners of the ceremony borrowed the outfit idea from a popular Spanish Series Money Heist. Thus the viral phrase #ruracioheist.

The ladies were covered in Maasai shawls and their faces were also fully covered with masks giving the man a hard time.
