All the Things that a Rich Single Lady in Nigeria Will Understand

October 20, 2015

Another Saturday, yet another bridal train.

Being happy for yet another bride…

Where people ask you “When you are getting married?”

When you have to explain to your parents that you don’t have a boyfriend.

The one that was even listening to your marriage talk…

Has left you for someone else.

But when you think about it…

You smile to yourself…

Because who needs a husband…

When you have £13 Billion?
