New Wife Calls Out Igbo Fathers Over Huge Cost of Bride Price

An Igbo woman Nkiruka Akpovili, who recently tied the knot with her Isoko husband is really angry about the cost of her traditional wedding as it has drained herself and her husband financially, to the point of leaving her in debt.

She took to Facebook to rant, saying she and her hubby could neither sleep nor eat due to the debt incurred. In her post, she also begged all Igbo fathers to stop the act of billing their daughter’s husbands just because they’re non Igbos.

I’m really angry and I must rant this rant……

I want to sincerely beg all Igbo fathers here to please stop the act of billing their daughter’s husbands to be just because they’re non Igbos. It’s not fair at all because while they’re enjoying the money, their daughters are at the receiving end.

I’m of no doubt that some Igbo ladies make good wives and all….my traditional wedding was last month and in all honesty, I now understand why most men marry Igbo wives and subject them to suffering.

I understand why most Igbo women are baby mamas instead of being the wives………. My husband is Isoko and all his friends (Igbos included ) have vowed not to get involved with any Igbo lady.

I know some of my brothers and sisters would want to insult me. I know some of my friends here would want to inbox me to interrogate me, I don’t care because we’re back in Lagos, broke and for the first time in a long while, I’m now a debtor and can’t sleep or eat well.”
