“For Only One Woman?” Man Shares Photos of Bride Price List In-Laws Gave Him With Deadline, People React

  • The Twitter community was thrown into a frenzy after a male user shared the wedding list his girlfriend's family gave him
  • The list contained many items and monetary gifts expected from the intending groom before the wedding rites begin
  • Apart from the outrageous items required as bride price, the list also had a deadline for its requirements to be met

Every village and African community has peculiarities regarding wedding rites and bride price lists. While some are nominal, others are considered extravagant and unnecessary.

A Twitter user with the handle @Kayjnr10 has expressed his shock online over the marriage list he received.

Apart from the expensive items on the list, which included a car, cow, wine, gallons of oil, a house and some amount of money, what infuriated many was the caveat at the end of the list.

It was typed in uppercase that there was a deadline for the items to be provided. The in-laws graciously gave the end of April as the deadline.

Photo of Yoruba marriage list

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a man identified as Omoba Adeoba has sent social media into a frenzy after sharing a picture of a Yoruba marriage list.

According to him, the list shared in the Rant HQ Extention group on Facebook was an actual sample. The marriage list, which has been tagged cheap by some netizens, was divided into two parts. The first part contained things and persons the groom was expected to settle.

The bride price (Owo Ori) was put at N5k, while the bride's mother (Iya Omo) and bride's father (Baba Omo) were to be given N3k each. The second part contained items like 50 yams, a leather box, an umbrella, Holy Bible, amongst others.
