6 Very Important Things You Need To Have Before Marrying A Nigerian Man

August 18, 2021

Choosing to spend the rest of your life with a Nigerian man is not a decision made by the faint-hearted. Here is a list of things you’ll need to have before marrying a Nigerian man.

1. A calabash

LV calabash for that matter. He should be happy you saved his destiny in a designer calabash.

You’ll need the calabash to store his love and maybe his destiny, just in case he tries to misbehave or leave. He doesn’t need to know about the calabash, so he doesn’t go behind you and break it.

2. The amour of God

Praying on the Armor of God

This is a lot more important than the calabash. You need to buy the whole amour of God – thankfully, there’s nothing you can’t buy online. There is only a little difference between Nigerian men and principalities and powers. You’ll be needing a power bigger than him to let that marriage work.

3. Babalawo clothes.

In case the armour of God is not enough, you’ll have the amour of many other gods to join to your power. The main aim of this is to make him know you can’t be messed with. You’ll be able to instil the fear of God into him. By fire, by force.

4. Kayanmata

This might seem like a dramatic approach, but it is not. The kayanmata is needed to add sweetness to your marriage. You have to buy this so your future husband won’t even think of looking outside. Except he is greedy.

5. High heels

The high heels serve two purposes.

  1. To knock sense into his head if all plans fail.
  2. To remind him that he isn’t the only one that can be on a high horse whenever he tries to raise shoulders for you.

6. A house
