A Nigerian man has cried out over the shocking bride price list he was presented for his traditional marriage by the bride-to-be's family.
Taking to Twitter, the Abuja based logo and graphics designer with the handle @ekibyleo shared a photo of the list as he lamented saying:
Pretty lady goes online in search for husband, says man must be able to cook, clean, Nigerians react
"Na marry I say I wan marry, wetin be this na?"
The bride price list, from the image he posted, was divided into two parts. One had items for the father-in-law and the second for the mother-in-law.
Some interesting items and their price tags as seen on both sections included N10,000 for father-in-law cigarette, a table for counting money at N15,000, a knife at N20,000, opening of the house at N50,000. All totalled over a million naira.
The tweet has since sparked debates among many on social media.
A lady @NihinlolaOlowe knocked the man saying:
"If I am the lady, I will break up with you because you don't deserve her. Do you really have to bring it to social media? If you feel the list is unrealistic, take a walk, you did not help them to raise their child, and you don't have the right to judge them."
"Review knife 20k, counting table 15k, pig 80k?
"Does anyone with reason come up with this kinda list in the first place?"
"Your father in law will smoke 10k worth of cigarette? Is he car exhaust??"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a man shared a photo of his friend's bride price list that ran into a million naira.
The friend identified as Sam Hart noted that they had calculated the outrageous amount together after his friend brought the list to him.
Hart also revealed that the wife-to-be is a native of Mbaise in Imo state. The Twitter user shared photos of the three-page list.
The photos showed that the list consists of items for different purposes. One contains items for marriage in the community, one is for women and their rights in the community and the last one is for the main cooking day.
