What Is The Bride Price In Your Own Hometown? by Umuchoke(m): 12:57pm On Jul 15, 2015
Despite our religion/tribal differences, Nigerians still intermarry for the sake of love. So this thread is mainly for young men who are tired of being bachelors but are scared of THE LONG LIST grin (Igbo Kwenu!!!).

Although, what most people don't know is that the LIST they give you in the Southeast is very, very negotiable - it's not compulsory you buy every item on it, unless you wish to. The only thing you can't negotiate is the BRIDE PRICE, which is ridiculously cheap.
For instance, in my place, Umuchoke, Amaigbo, Imo State, the bride price is just N150 only. Please tell us yours.

Varies. Some take from N10 - N50 others between N70 - N120....but never seen a case of more than N200.

We do it this way to stem the notion that you are buying our daughter. Because if you eff up, instantly your fee will be refunded and we can take our daughter back. Some clans even want their daughters buried in her father's place instead of the husband's, because they didn't sell her to the man. Its not his property.

no bride price. just so long as you love their daughter and are ambitious enough to take care of their daughter and respect her , she is yours

Yoruba = between 20 to 80k
Hausa = between 10 to 30k
Igbo = between 200 to 600k


See clean business..

There is an adage that says "the love of money is the beginning of ritual"
