A man took to Twitter to say "we need to dismantle misogyny" after he didn't get a share from his sister's bride price, IgbereTV reports.

He said bride price of 300,000 Naira was paid and his mother was given only 5,000 Naira while elders he's never seen in his life took the rest.

Read his tweets below.

"Them pay my sister bride price almost 300k, na 5k reach my momsy hand, elders share the rest, so na the misogyny ebele and uloma dey talk since be this

Elders wey I never see for my life dey call my sister their pikin

We need to dismantle this misogyny thing, assuming my momsy collect better money I for done see my share

The male privilege no even reach my side and I dey fear to ask make them no send me go evil forest"

Men are their own enemies.

I am sure when they stayed and agreed to be paying “bride price” abi huge marriage list, they forgot that someone like Buhari would be a democratic president. They also never foresaw that $1= N478 or graduates would turn 31 without stable jobs.

Now that the economy is choking them and restricting their airflows, they are now forming online bro-code and looking for imaginary feminist that will go stop a practice they put in place for their own ever-needy-ego.

You’ll still see same charlatans insulting other Nigerian tribes that are civil enough to conduct marriages like what it is- the coming together of two consenting adults, not an empowerment program.

That gender can never be understood.

If not that God is all knowing, they almost confused Him when He asked a simple question in the Garden of Eden.

Eleru gberu e ooo

Ladycewhy:
So because he didn't get his share he is now angry at patriarchy and misogyny?

Na their way na. Cry when e choke them. grin

They na want to put the burden of ROI on us. We no send them message o. Lmao!

They sowed by having prick. Seems you didn’t get the memo. Once you have prick in Nigeria (the size is irrelevant) you have sown into the life of every woman. grin

SmartyPants:


You mean men gathered somewhere and agreed to be paying bride price? How does this boost our egos in anyway?

With or without bride price a woman is traditionally expected to submit in every known culture and tradition across Nigeria.

I personally don't require submission as such and I certainly don't intend to pay bride price but I have found that once you voice such opinions the greatest resistance is from women who feel that only broke men complain about bride price.

No part of my post made reference to SUBMISSION. Na you know wetin dey choke you.

I honestly still find it hard to understand the Igbo marriage initiation system. How could strangers reap where they did not sow bikonu? Is it too much to do the wedding in the brides compound minus all those extended kinsmen? Or do kukuma somewhere the wife's father is based whether na Lagos o abi na Kano....that will also reduce the perpetual list considerably.

15 crates of malt for youth.
5 bags of rice for the youths
40 kegs of wine for the kinsmen
50 baskets of kolanut for the elders grin

It is men that are benefitting more from the list given to the intending groom, majority of who never bothered to ask about how "our daughter" have been faring but once she begins to talk about marriage, their antennas get activated!

The above is why they took the lion's share. They are August visitors and may never have access to anything again, so they have already taken their pension. The mum should be calming down, she got the rest that is to come, i.e. Omuguor, etc

I am not surprised,it is from 5% land you spent so much to acquire one badly used girl that have been screwed by scores of men, giving out daughters in 5% land have become poverty alleviation in that poverty ridden land, they are mentally deprived and uninformed, incase of divorce who will pay back that bride price, where as somewhere in the south parents are giving out their virgin daughters for free saying, GOD didn't collect anything from them, over there their own overused daughters are for sale.

Doing the marriage in USA won’t automatically reduce the list, you will either monetize it and send or get a home-based person to buy it all. The problem is the mindset, the formation they come with. They come like hungry lions. Some of them can’t even pick out the bride from ten ladies, but their eyes go dey chook inside everything.

They do not have a problem with you not inviting them, just send the money to them. If you don’t, the repercussions would be waiting for both you and your children’s children.

This same matter.

Out of 70 tubers of yam, my mum got only 5.

Out of several crates of soft drink, na only give pieces of Malta guinness them give my mama, then a bottle of palm oil out of 25 litres of oil.

If those old men meet me on the road, they don't know me. They didn't know how I went to school from nursery to masters.

But they collected everything in the bridal list.

How long we wan continue like this.
