A Nigerian man has taken to social media to lament over the misogynistic practices that exist in African traditions and cultures that should be dismantled.
Taking to his Twitter page, the man revealed that over N300,000 was paid as his sister’s bride price, but only N5,000 was given to his mum who toiled for her daughter.
“Them pay my sister bride price almost 300k, na 5k reach my momsy hand, elders share the rest, so na the misogyny Ebele and Uloma dey talk since be this. Elders wey I never see for my life dey call my sister their pikin,” he said.
“We need to dismantle this misogyny thing, assuming my momsy collects better money I for done see my share. The male privilege no even reach my side and I dey fear to ask make them no send me go evil forest.”
KanyiDaiky recalls that Nollywood actress, Toni Tones had opined that the culture of “bride price” which is predominant in marriages, should be scrapped.
