Nowadays, bride price in Africa has become so expensive that it is deterring people from getting into marriage.
Though they say marriage is a beautiful thing, people don’t get to enjoy it not because they married the wrong person but they fell out along the line because of some outrageous bride list.
A man from Nigeria by name Mr Anderson has shared his story of how he ended his relationship with his fiancee of 9 years.
According to Mr Anderson, he had to ditch his fiancee not because he doesn’t love her but rather the attitude of her family to give him an outrageous bride price list.
The bride price sighted by Ghcelebs.com contained figures as high as One Hundred and Fifty Thousand(150,000N) for the mother-in-law alone which is equivalent to GHC 2295.94.
In a leaked screenshot of their chat, the man said broke the sad news to his fiancee that he’s calling off the marriage and the relationship due to the extortionate bride price.
He also stated that it seemed like her family was trying to sell the young lady to him which he finds strange.
