Tribal Marks Brouhaha

Imagine having lines torn across your face ...or the face of someone you know.....Imagine.




A Customary Court, Agege yesterday dissolved the 10-year-old marriage between a woman and her husband, because he gave their daughter tribal marks without her approval



The woman said “He lured my daughter to his village on the pretext of visiting his parents and gave her tribal marks on her face without my consent."

I will like to know your opinion on tribal marks on kids....

In this time and age? The man should be jailed, nonsense and ingredient, what rubbish.

We have a particular tribal mark in my family that has been eradicated long time ago, my dad didn't even have, our own is called 'gonmbo', what's your family's tribal mark called??? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

The man should be flogged at this jet age. Giving your daughter igbaja meta.

My brother had a friend that is late. We call him Sergeant Tomori because of his tribal marks. We dont even remember his name the parents gave him but that sergeant Tomori because his name.

I don't buy it at all,I will even do more than the woman,wanting the court to sentence such husband to life sentence😁if its possible after divorcing him

Precious Ibik said...

Its barbaric and archaic! It's high time it's stopped. I once dated someone with tribal marks. Though his own is two thick long ones on each cheek like a tear drop. I don't find it okay. In fact if anybody does that to my child but God forbid, (hell will be let loose) the person will be sued for child abuse and physical endangerment to a minor. That culture or whatever it is should be abolished.

SWAG LAFRESH said...

Nobody should try it on my kids.

It's pure wickedness.

Miss Ess said...

I can't take it at all. In this age and time. I can't allow it

SANDY YO said...

Habaaaa manaaaa, this can be really annoying AF na. What an illiterate hubby.πŸ™„πŸ˜ Tsk! Ma opinion on tribal mark is a no no. Irritating shit!

June baby said...

My mom's father gave us Urhobo mark, even though my own dad is Isoko. But I feel my tribal mark is quite sexy; a small minus sign on my left cheek. I wouldn't mind giving my kids the Urhobo tribal mark. My main boo is Isoko and has Isoko tribal mark and I detest it; medium 11's on both cheeks. My view on tribal mark is the severity of the mark. Urhobo and Ijaw tribal marks are quite okay by me, but any other tribal mark is a no no for me

I was about to give the man some e- slaps but, the baby's eyebrows look like they were drawn with brown eye pencil. So, maybe this is a fake pic. Well, i hope this did not happen.

Brandedme said...

Its a NO for me it can kill d child self esteem

Love.Eating.Pussy said...

First of all I can't be with a partner who still believes in tribal marks.
Anybody that tries such nonsense with me is not going to live to tell the story...either husband,in-law or my own family members.

Now the baby girl will grow up feeling inferior and won't be able to post pictures on social media

Honeybunny said...

I don't know why we are still practicing such barbaric custom. It should have been abolished same time with the killing of twins.
Same thing with FGM. Mtchewww!!

This can not be true,why evils?

Tribal marks are disgusting,why should you mutilate an innocent child,I feel it's an infringement on human rights and it should be criminalized. I can only imagine the local sharp instruments used for this beastal act exposing this children to risk of Aids,hepatitis C , B.

Oluwakemi Adebisi said...

tribal marks is a no no for me. we weren't born with them so why should we put them on our faces. there is no difference between tribal marks and tattoo

my elder sis has tribal marks. three short vertical lines on each cheeks. I bless God everyday that I & my other younger ones don't have.. I would've hated my parents for that. tribal marks have never made anyone beautiful.

Laeffizy said...

That practise is archaic. People should move with changing times.

🌟Dreamcatcher 🌟 said...

All I know is that it's totally wrong!

Anonymous said...

Olden days style. Foolish and wicked man. Why did the woman even allow him travel with the baby alone.

STARRY LARRY said...

You need to change this orientation, we're no more in the stone age but jet age. This is 21st century now, Urobo mark or any other tribal mark should be condemned

Greatlady. said...

Our family have never believed in tribal marks. But birth marks.
I have a birth mark on my back. A big black mark. It grows as I grow. My siblings were also born with one but on different places. My sister has in her face. A round black dot but hers doesn't grow. Only mine grows.
Who can also relate?

Just pull the trigger instead.

Well,as I was told they said in the olden days only rich families could afford tribal marks as a sign of affluence and recognition.my mum has marks well broaden on her face and I love her to the moon and back.flaunt her everywhere I can.but at this age and time not even the devil can try that with me or my kids.impossiCANT!

Fab Mum said...

I can relate. My family don't have tribal marks. My grand father never had any mark. My dad didn't have and we don't have. My mom and grand ma too don't have any marks

But I have birth marks. I have like 4 on my face. Like black dots. One on both sides of my face, that's close to my eyes. Then around my nose. The one around my nose grows. Because it use to be very tiny. But now very visible. People think I put the dot with black eyeliner. One below my lips

Then I have 2 on both hands. Same location. 1 on each laps. 2 on my chest. That's the ones I have seen. My mom had 3 on her face. The one I have on my nose is also on the same location with that of my mom. Hers looks like big black pimples. Lol. She's saying that's how my own will be. Issh. I don't think so. But it's cute tho.

My boys also have on their laps. One on each laps. And their chest. I haven't seen on their face. My last baby has a big one on his lap on the same location I have the big one on my laps.

So I'm guessing this runs in my family

Respect your culture, no matter what...

jelly said...

I was given short tribal marks, but not too obvious but I will never try it on my kids

ADA ANAMBRA, LOVER OF LOVE said...

It's a NO NO from me....why put a child through unnecessary pains, Mbanu.

Senora SouthSouth said...

I do have tribal marks and I'm edo! It looks good on me and I'm the only one who's got it in my family,siblings don't have. I won't give any of my kids though... It's outdated

There is NO BODY, NOBODY, I REPEAT NOBODY that tribal marks look good on.

But if that helps you sleep well at night, please repeat it to yourself every day.

miss Aboki the great said...

kikikikikiki. Me i have two marks on both cheeks. They said it is anti convulsion mark. My choirmaster calls me 11. I dey rock the mark wella plus I get toasters steady. You will be somewhere minding your business and someone will just come "fine girl I like your mark" and the next thing is to start asking for number and professing love. LOL. I dey enjoy the attention sha, but I won't give my kids. #OkBye

White Diamond said...

I don't have any tribal marks. I've never seen anyone in my family, both extended and distant, with tribal marks.

And thank heavens. I do not like them at all.

#WhiteDiamondOut

White Diamond said...

Lol! Birthmarks.

I have a black dot on my right cheek, very beautiful something. One on the lateral aspect of my right hand.

My sister has one, right in the middle of her forehead.

Then I have a not-so-small birthmark, that 'lacks' melanin somewhere on my body.
