Nollywood actress, Christabel Egbenya, has issued a warning to young girls who believe that cooking, washing, and performing various tasks for their boyfriends will make them more attractive as potential wives.
In response to a viral video featuring a girl who invested all of her savings into her boyfriend, only to have him elope with another woman overseas, the newly married mother of one stressed that giving a man money will not necessarily lead to marriage.
Post Nigeria gathered that, Egbenya cautioned against spending extended periods of time in a man’s home, engaging in domestic chores or intimate activities, as a means of securing a future with him.
Her comments have prompted discussion and debate amongst her fans and followers, with many expressing their support for her message of self-worth and empowerment.
On a video posted on her verified Instagram page, Christabel Egbenya said, “This message if for all you who are yet to get married, yet you pack your bags to man’s house turning yourself into his wife. You will wash, iron, cook his foods. Wash his bathroom and give him access to all your sexual parts. Tomorrow when he dumps for another person, you will start crying and complaining. Why will he not dump you? When you have offered him all you have. Stop being a wify when he has not paid your bride price. “
She continued: “Ask around, for me I don’t go men’s house to cook when I was still single. Cook and wash for you? Have I finished cooking and washing for myself? If I manage to go a man’s house to spend a day, he would be thankful. Because, I don’t usually do that. Also stop giving them money, so you will not be disappointed when they eventually end up not marrying you.”
