Africans are too quick to throw their culture down the drain, all we do is run after and embrace foreign cultures, we see our tradition as uncultured and bizarre. Yes! Scrap bride price and rather wear silly white dresses and walk down the aisle🙄

No please. It is Ourculture. I rather we handle it like my village does. We ask you to bring #10,000 and it most be cash. So when the groom brings it, they make sure to collect as low as #30. They will ask you to use the rest to take care of your wife. ItsOurheritage
