"Kalu that got married at over 40 still get mind part ways??? Let me come and be going."

cjkmadrid:

"Ignorant comments..... The amount is insignificant. It is just symbolic. If he wanted money back, will he be asking for just 14k? Is that what the wedding or marriage rites cost? He's doing it so they could both be free to go their separate ways. That's Igbo tradition, otherwise the lady won't be able to remarry. He's actually being nice in that aspect."

"The return of brideprice is customary at the dissolution of the marriage. That way both parties are free to remarry later."

kandymills:

"It’s tradition, even if it’s 1 naira . He is even good, some wicked men will never collect it and you will never marry without them collecting it back."

"In igbo tradition, the bride price has to be returned to nullify the marriage. This has nothing to do with the amount."

BBNaija Tega's husband spotted with Boma

There appears to be no bad blood between BBNaija star Tega’s husband and Tega’s ‘boyfriend’ on the show, Boma.

In a video making the rounds and causing a buzz on social media, Tega’s husband, Ajeboh and Boma were spotted laughing and discussing like friends.

This video went against the expectations of many fans of the show who had expected Ajeboh and Boma never to see eye to eye over his conduct with Tega in the BBNaija house.
