This can't be true. Adobbilivit

Jessica Braimah said...

Am not understanding 😁😁

GALORE said...

@SDK...it is not even much seff

Seriously!!


Just find out what we collect in Efik kingdom if you want to marry our daughters


You may google it up.



And besides,this is tradition,and it must be strictly followed to the latter.


Yoruba people will come.here and tell me ,we are selling our daughters off ,if we collect this kind of gifts just for grad marriage alone....abeggi.


And also aside from this gift....The groom MUST envelope #100k for the brides father and #80k for the brides mum....Infact,very very compulsory indeed

This can't be true, ibos generally have never been known to eat pork, so why pigs requirement? I am guessing this is a place in Cameroon or equatorial guinea

Mrs. Romas said...

They have even reduced the number or required items. It used to be more than these items pictured on the floor.

I have attended more than 20 traditional marriages in the Eastern part of Nigeria; especially in Imo Enugu and Anambra states.

The last time i attended an igbo marriage, if i may recall was back in 2005 in Ihala (Not sure of the Spelling), the lists was endless. The town men requested none stop for different things. Thank God the both couples were up to the tasks. They knew their people and they were ready.

Even Asaba people also have endless lists of dowry payment. Is their tradition and it can't easily be stopped.

But i still love my igbo brothers and sisters no matter what. I miss those fresh eggplants and nuts puree. I even miss Okpa, Abacha and Ugba.
I miss Nigeria jare.

MOTHER NATURE........ said...

Madam Stella lwkmd.... Are you kidding me that you haven't heard of this before? To marry woman for Imo state in general na war oh! The man must gather mind + get better Aklalapala (Money) Some part of Mbaise dey collect Jeep or its equivalent.

During my time, they asked my hubby to buy Swiss wrist watch for my mother and other items that are so outrageous. My sister this things are real and are happening up till now. I had to ask my dad if this was the same list that was given to him when he came to marry my mom and if this is the same list they give to the guys based in the village and are not working.

I mean, this is all shade of wrong and reasons most ladies are yet not married or will be married and beautifully maltreated by the husband because obviously the woman is a commodity not a companion.

Village people?? Na when you wan do burial or wedding they go remember you come open your book lol. They are always excited because it is their hour to reap from where they did not sow.

It is well oh!

Obviously, they are offloading stuff bc these as shown is not even a quarter of demands from Mbaise. True or not, that impression has left many Mbaise ladies in the spinster markets. Nobody wants to go and try to find out the hard way. The lady i wanted to marry lied to me that she is from Aba (she grew up in Aba) bc she feared I would run if she says Mbaise. That's how bad it is. As i later heard Mbaise, my people said even if I tie them, dem no follow me go. Na so e be o. I feel sorry for the ladies suffering from the greed of their village people. I be Anambra.

I'm from abia n my parents gave hubby n his people list of 500k to pay on top of my head. I was mad! It created problem n dey said if he doesn't pay they won't give me away. Hmm, hubby wasnt impressed n it caused serious wahala wt my people n his own. I fought wt my parents. Big big issue.

Wedding over, n I've cut my parents from my life. No one should blame me. Wonder when parents will stop making excessive demands of their children getting married. My parents milked him dry, n didn't contribute financially to my wedding. Hubby had to pay their tickets for them to travel for the wedding. I cried all thru d wedding period. It's unfair! Hubby is a good man, he didn't deserve such treatment. He Is very forgiving n has asked me to make peace wt my parents n call them but I've refused. I feel hurt n pained in my spirit. I'm still praying for the grace to forgive them. I even resolved for hubby's Mum to do "omugwo" when d time comes. his family Is full of love, it's amazing.
So help me God in d journey to forgive my parents!!!

Efik girl from Essien Town said...

Galore, i'm an efik girl, from ESSIEN TOWN, and I won't let you mislead people here. Efik marriage list is really moderate and what the husband really spends money on is the box and the things inside which is still for his wife. The money for parents varies depending on how greedy or hungry the family is and most families who demand crazy amounts have their roots in Ibibio while claiming efik.

Efik marriage is one of the cheapest as almost everything is done by the bride's parents, (food, drinks, canopies and chairs, plus household items for the girl). Some parents buy up to mattress, washing machine et al depending on how much they can afford.

The list from the family to the groom consist of mainly hot drinks, and little cash (30 - 50k for the bride's parent), the dowry which is 12 pounds or its equivalent in Naira, money for the bride which will be put in the box for the bride to take home and the amount is determined by the husband as it is a gift from him to her. The money has to be good enough at least for her to be able to use it for some kind of trade (that is the main essence of that cash) to help herself and her husband.

I don't know which part of efik you're from, but for me that is how I've seen it done in my family and other efik families around me.

Sorry for the long epistle, if there are errors abeg manage, can't go back to proof read abeg.

Efik girl from Essien Town said...

Galore now I know some if not all your gist about celebs are fake.
How can you say they give 100tubers of yam??? Fear no catch you? Do you know how much yams cost?

And 3 boxes of "orlandis and judge"??? Hian this babe, dey soffry dey lie o...in fact I think you're an ibibio girl , na only them dey collect this kind things. Washing machine and stock fish??? Kwakwakwakwa...

My people, I don't comment on any blog o but this one be as e get, I couldn't help it. You see yam is included in the list but maybe 20 - 30 tubers or so, plus a normal size goat (1) which I think some other traditions collect too. I don't know about stock fish as I've never seen it in my own trad list or my sisters' or family members or even friends who are efiks.

As for the washing machine, it is the bride's mother's responsibility to buy household things for her daughter as she can afford. Sewing machine used to be the highest those days but now parents are more sophisticated so they get washing machine, gas cookers and others, only if they can afford it o. It is not the groom's responsibility to provide this for the bride o, even good and drinks is the bride's parents responsibilities. The groom can assist if he likes and if the bride's parents don't really have a lot.

Then the box (just one o) is purchased by the husband and filled with clothes, accessories and money for his wife. That box goes home with them with everything that is in it, the husband buys according to how much he can afford.

Whew!!!

When we have Bachelors' Night in our church, na one of the prayer points, "God no let devil carry Mbaise lady come our side" . Marriage to Mbaise lady should be listed as one of the 1000 ways to die.

Hian. For Mbaise woman who go poison you, carry your money go give im family? God forbid. One town called Omuma in Imo State, all the ladies from there na badluck. Their village shrine go follow man render him useless financially. Everyone wey i know wey marry from Omuma are regretting it now. Although words have got out. Guys no wan take risk anymore with all the abiku/ogbanje/dreamkillers wey full there. Men. Beware!

Anonymous22:41, its a shame that you can't read and comprehend simple english. Keeper of certificate of origin, so na you born me to know where i come from. All most of you do it to find fault without reading and understanding. So because auchi dont eat pork, my village people should not eat? Why dont you people go to Jattu market and stop them from selling and eating pork. I don't blame you, south ibie people are the dullest people Ive ever come across.

Pls this is a lie! I am not from mbaise but I can categorically tell you that this is false! Infact the pig and fresh fish is the what gave this away. And those drinks? Nah!

I am from IMO state and I know what the list consist of where I come from and most time the whole content of the list is not more than #200,000. The bride price itself is just 60naira sef. If you want to return your wife na that 60naira then go give you back. Things like ego unu ada and money for the sisters are not more than #5000 naira or #10,000. Thou some families are greedy and would want To basically sell off their daughters but k do know that the parents of the groom do send someone to go find out about the girl and her family during which they can also get sample of the list to guild them. Biko bye.
