Man laments upon realizing his wife has sold their house
In a related story, YEN.com.gh reported that a Nigerian man was upset to learn that his wife had sold their home for GH200k upon his return from a trip abroad.The unnamed man disclosed in a depressing TikTok video that he purchased the land alone for GH198k and spent GH10k for community development.
The video was shot when he was touring the property. He stated he plastered, roofed, and installed all the guards on the home before leaving the nation, pointing in the general direction of the house.
He said he had given his wife the house to manage; this suggests he hadn't instructed her to put it up for sale. Four units were constructed on the site, he claimed, and he expressed disbelief that someone would agree to purchase it for the discounted sum of GH200k.
