"For person wey go still give you problem? Lol."
"Why is the bride not happy abi the list never still complete."
"If the bride deserve it, why won’t you pay it."
"That’s not it ooo. I wish I can explain this very well in English. There’s something my people refer to as SENDING THE BRIDE HOME (something like that). Those items came from the Brides family as to what they’re using to settle their daughter to her husband’s home... In others words, it’s not from the man and not part of the pride price."
