A Nigerian man has reportedly divorced his wife of 19-years after she allegedly engaged in the trending ‘Dancing For Husbands‘ challenge which has gained popularity among Northern wives.
Over the Eid Mubarak holiday, Arewa women engaged in the challenge which involves dancing for their husbands and sharing the video on social media with the hashtag #DancingForHusbands Challenge.
Although the challenge has provided beautiful content that was enjoyed by social media users, a number of Muslim men have condemned Arewa women for the challenge.
They said only a husband should see such video as it’s immoral for the wife to share it with the world, warning that Arewa women should desist from imitating the “ways of others.”
A Facebook user identified as Sanusi Bature Dawakin-Tofa has revealed that one of the women who engaged in the challenge has been sent parking by her husband.
According to Sanusi, the woman is his only wife and they’ve been married for 19 years but he allegedly divorced her for sharing an intimate family video online.
“I just realized that one of my former bosses divorced his wife for releasing to the public, the #Dancingforhusbands challenge last night. The most unfortunate thing, it’s a marriage of 19 years with 3 kids, she has been the only wife in the house,”
Below are some of the comments made by Arewa men condemning the challenge.
Meanwhile, KanyiDaily had reported how a man named ‘Stubborn’ beat his wife to coma after she threatened to divorce him at their residence in Ikorodu area of Lagos State.
