African men that we in return speak so highly about; African men that we have loved all our lives, whom we were raised with, who raised us.
The culture of online dating is not so very old in Africa.
Until recently there are very few options for the local girls to meet the western men online.
We have heard enough stories about how Kenyan women borrowed loans for their Nigerian boyfriends to pay for ‘containers with goods worth millions’ stuck at the port only for the Nigerian man to disappear. He calls you ‘baby’ all the time except when he calls you ‘my queen’. It is not humanly possible for a man to be 100 per cent romantic, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. He throws money at you: No man in his right mind will throw money at a woman.
I know Kenyan women whose careers and lives have come to a standstill after a Nigerian man swept them clean, and I mean clean; car, house, land, money… So today, ladies, I chose to address this topic, once and for all. You have never been immersed in so much love and affection. He will even paint your toenails and shampoo your hair. But this Nigerian is the most generous man you have ever met in your life.
He will shower you with gifts and money amounting to Sh1 million, knowing very well that he will con you Sh3 million and make a profit Sh2 million. You will run to the sacco and borrow some Sh2 million. He moves in with you: So he gives you a cock and bull story about how he is putting up with a friend in Kileleshwa but has been unsuccessfully looking for a house.
This is a guest blog by Stephanie Kimou (pictured) who blogs at A Black Girl in the World *** Minna’s article last week on the reasons why she/we love African men, was pretty spot on right?
He debunks every myth you have ever heard about Nigerian men swindling women off their money. You think that the Lord has finally smiled upon you and given you a wonderful man who is not only loving, but also rich.
