N300k was paid as my sisters bride price, my mum got just 5k – Nigerian man cries out

A Nigerian man has taken to social media to cry, what he called the misogynistic practices that exist in African traditions and cultures as it affects him directly.

According to him, his mother got 5000 naira on the bride price of her own daughter.

In most traditions, bride Price is when the family of the groom pay their future in-laws at the start of their marriage. The payment can be made up of money, presents, or a mixture of both. It’s sometimes paid in one go, but instalments aren’t uncommon.

While he took on Twitter to Lament, He wrote;

“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
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”
