Linda try that shit with Nigerian men of today and they will dump your ass once they become successful. They will go and marry one small girl with your money. Shine your eyes before you marry. #YOURBIGFAN.

@ femi fex, and might I add that you don't have brains at all. A disgrace to the Yoruba race. I am pretty sure that you do not even know the definition of success or hard work. It is people like you that keeps promoting tribalism. Anumpama, ezi ofia, mbada eze ule.

This was when 'i love you' meant id do anything for you with the success of whatever is done to be shared.

And when 'i trust my man' meant you could give him both your eyes and still be led in the right direction.

I'm surprised at the peeps condemning this woman. This is the kind of woman every man is praying for...an industrious woman that can hold her own anytime. She did well to support her husband. Who else should she have supported?
