7 Reasons Why You Should Fear Igbo Women

August 31, 2020

Pretty much every man has been in the clutches of Igbo women at some point. They’re renowned worldwide for their wickedness and cold-heartedness. If you haven’t been hurt by Igbo women before, this article is for you. I’m trying to save you before it ends in premium tears.

If an Igbo woman is catching your eye, in the words of the great Fela, “my brother, run oh.”

Read on for the reasons why you should avoid the Nigerian women who put the fear of God in the devil.

1. They will break your heart

An Igbo woman breaking your heart is a rite of passage for every Nigerian.

2. They will cheat on you

Turn and look at your Igbo girlfriend. Look at her very well. She’s cheating on you. That’s all I have to say.

3. They will make you drop them off at their “cousin’s” house

Hint: It’s her second boyfriend.

4. They’re heartless

After breaking your heart, they’ll ask, “Is it because of this small cheating you’re crying?

5. After they cheat on you, you’ll still beg them

Seriously need to know who is doing their jazz for them.

6. They’ll give you sleepless nights

After not replying for 15 hours, she will say she “fell asleep” meanwhile she was meeting her cheating quota for the week. Don’t fall for this gimmick, kings. Stay woke.
