Nollywood actor, Sam Nnabuike has urged Nigerian parents especially those from the Igbo tribe to desist from telling their daughters to bring home wealthy suitors.
Sam pointed out on his Instagram story that in most Igbo homes, mothers sternly push the narratives and are too keen on the specification of who their daughters are allowed to date or bring home as suitors.
According to him, most Igbo mothers will daily echo in their daughter’s ears to bring prospective husbands who are heavily loaded in the pocket but will not show concern in investigating the source of the man’s wealth.
Sam went further to opine that a critical and holistic approach has to be taken to educate the Igbo girl child, however, his post is in no way an attempt to discredit the millions of many hard-working and illustrious Igbo women in Nigeria and other parts of the world.
Reacting to his post,
Exactly. Until this is being practiced then maybe we will have less failed marriages.
Then they’ll grow up shouting standards here and there, don’t settle for less mantra! Go and make your own money werey.
Before you get triggered and attack him. READ THIS AND DIGEST IT.
It’s not only Igbo my broda. Parent Generally with poverty mindset, indulge in this act
@samsunny1 That this may be true about your mother does NOT make it true for the rest of Igbo mothers. Just talk about your mum and keep it shut!
In other words, stop using your daughters as poverty alleviation scheme
