“We’re now broke and I’m now a debtor after my traditional wedding” – Nigerian lady

An Igbo lady identified as Nkiruka Akpovili is really angry about the cost of her traditional wedding as it has drained herself and her Isoko husband finacially, to the point of being in debt.

She took to his facebook page to rant about it.

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

I want to sincerely beg all igbo fathers here to pls stop the act of billing their daughters 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 )has vowed not 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.


  1. u are stupid. y didn’t u tell ur parents to reduce d price or list for him? is it because d wedding is over and u are ranting or shouting like bull dog. If I were ur husband, I will maltreat u seriously after giving birth to one or two. una think say because em come from Delta or south south, say money full everywhere.

  2. Oh my God you just have to take heart the blessings behind marriage will locate you and your hubby so you will be able to settle your debt.

    • Why calling her stupid because she voiced out the truth. You are not making sense at all. I decree sense to fall on you.

  3. Wicked tranditions that put women in bondage. Why exorbitant bride price and marriage rite in first place? Are women commodities sold in market? Well it’s a pity take heart my sister.

  4. sorrydear, it’s not ur fault n sometimes not even ur parents’ fault. but d community n their tradition. Even when u beg there wouldn’t hear u

  5. please, be specific. What part of Igbo are you from beause as an Igbo man, got married to an Igbo Lady, i am certain we never as for exorbitant bride price.

  6. My dear blame the family u came out from and stop calling igbo’s. My own family are not like that. Are they selling u? Marriage no dey finish oooooooo.

  7. My dear it depends where u held from, not all Igbo tribe, so don’t generalize. are u from Mbaise or any part of Imo. cos my place Isuochi we make it very easy for strangers, we do not sale our daughters, thank u. secondly, you don’t have a good father.

  8. Ranting a rant or ranting a rat the key factor is to take note in case the marriage is to reschedule so that U can adjust and advice ur husband to cut the coat according to his size

  9. This is just the Nigerian problem you bill a man forgetting that he needs a backup money to fend for the family in fact to feed you a own daughter. I just pray that one day God will make them see the devil is cheating on them.
