In most parts of the world, marriages are events that people often look forward to. However, in Nigeria, organising a wedding is no easy feat and families involved will usually feel the sting in their pockets.
Nigeria is a country blessed with different cultures and traditions, its different tribes have their diverse ways of doing things.
There have been several reports of people from the eastern part of the country charging a high bride price when a female from their family wants to get married.
Legit.ng recently gathered photos of what a young man was asked to bring as a bride price.
The photos were shared on Facebook by a man who claimed to be a friend of the groom, identified as Promise Nony.

Promise, however, did not mention the name of the state where the occasion was held but from the couple’s outfits, it seems to be an eastern wedding.
The young man who was quite surprised at the large number of items explained in his caption that he feels the pain of his friend for having to pay an expensive bride price.
He wrote: “Just coming back with a friend from one state in Nigeria for her wife bride price, I don't want to mention the state name but by the items below u shall no them. That why I like IMO state they don't behave like this intense of bride price i don't call nameoooo

Meanwhile Legit.ng previously reported that a South African lady was very upset with her family for setting her bride price at a whopping N4 million, forcing her fiance to save more money.
According to the lady, her family set such a high price because she is pretty and educated.
