The minimum wage in 1982 was NGN3.35( 3 naira and 35 kobo) ... the hall was 500 naira (multiple of almost 150 of minimum wage)
The minimum wage today is N30k ...I am not sure 4.5million naira will get you the same venue today

⭕️⭕️⭕️

You are a special liar..

Minimum wage in naira has never
been N30, talk less of N3❗️❗️


Stop lieing with confidence❗️❗️❗️


An uncle recently showed me his
1978 payslip as a Grade Level 4, WAEC
holder, which was N89.35 kobo.

He said that at the time, minimum wage
was N60 .

The N3 you are talking about must have
been before independence and that
would have been Pounds, not Naira.⭕️⭕️⭕️

Those were the good old days!!!
After wedding reception, you go home with your tear rubber (virgin) wife, not these fairly and roughly used (non-virgins) of nowadays. When you get home, una go enjoy unaselves and you go dey happy ever after. The #500 no go pain you lailai because the partner wey you meet worth the money. Imagine been the first to drive a car, not fairly used we see everywhere nowadays.
Anyways, what do I even know sef aside enlightening my fellow men nationwide with the good news.

Oga if you no meet your wife as a virgin, oga go for DNA test oooooo because boreholes aka non-virgins can't be trusted
Some these days even carry std infection to the husbands house as wedding present.

Re: Wedding Reception Price In 1982 (see Receipt) by Brandiebird: 6:44pm On Apr 28
But that 500 was as hard to get as 50k today so it wasn’t that things were cheap but that the N# had value.
Re: Wedding Reception Price In 1982 (see Receipt) by adonainana: 6:56pm On Apr 28
Pointless news

Dollar rate in 1982 was 0.673 naira to $1

In other words the 500 naira they used for wedding was the equivalent of $315 (500 x 0.673)


In todays terms the same $315 is 472,500 naira (315 x1500 (dollar rate today )


So both the 1982 and the 2024 weddings hall books are expensive

No news here

To see 500 naira in 1982 was hell

To see 472,500 naira too in 2024 no be beans

And the funniest part is that most bannies that got married via that cheap amount of money were virgins...


Then again, I just had a thought...And that's the fact that we,men are now being compelled to pay lavishly trying to marry a community project all in the name of wife...

Wahala dey cha undecided
