9 Nigerian Women Tell Us The CRAZIEST Things They Have Done For Love

August 31, 2020

Love is such a beautiful and wonderful feeling. Sometimes, this wonderful feeling takes your sense for vanishing and makes you do some really crazy things. So, we asked nine Nigerian women to tell us the craziest things they have done for love.


Halima, 20

I once cancelled a 70k gig because this guy I was talking to said he was not feeling well and I should come see him. Only for me to get there and he was lying.

Ada, 27

Every Saturday, I would go to his house and cook enough food to last him a week. From soups and stews to even pastries because he liked a light snack before breakfast.

Elizabeth, 21

When I was in Secondary school, I left my house to surprise this boy on his birthday. I did not know I locked my father out of the house because he did not take his key. We were the only ones around, so nobody to open the gate for him. My father had to climb the fence to get in. He let the anger marinate because he did not beat me black and blue until the next morning.

Amina, 21

One time I was very broke and I was talking to this guy on my phone. My airtime finished then I borrowed two thousand naira airtime on both my sims to continue the call. When that finished, I took my food money to repay what I borrowed and then borrowed again. When everything finished and I had no hope, I told Oga to call me back. He told me he does not have airtime to waste because we were not saying sensible things.

Cynthia, 26

I sold one of my wigs to buy him a new phone because he told me his phone was bad. Turns out it was not bad, but he gave the phone to his girlfriend. Apparently, I was the side chick.

Ini, 20

I travelled to see her for the weekend because we were having issues and I wanted us to work out. While there, we went for lunch with two of our other friends. When I got back, she broke up with me two days later. I spent so much on that and my chest still hurts when I think of how much left my account.

Ana 22

I used my WAEC money to buy her a birthday gift. I still found money for WAEC because God no go shame us.

Adeola, 31

My boyfriend at the time asked for threesomes with me and other women. I did it because I thought if I did not, he will cheat on me. Very stupid time of my life honestly.

Bimbo, 29

Declined a scholarship to study in the UK, so we could both be in the same University in Nigeria. She cheated on me though and that was the wake up call I needed.
