In a recent episode of the “Frankly Speaking” podcast hosted by Nollywood actor Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, South African reality TV star and radio presenter, Malibongwe Gumede, made controversial remarks about Nigerian women and their approach to romantic relationships.
Gumede claimed that Nigerian women are primarily motivated by financial considerations when entering into romantic partnerships.
According to her, Nigerian ladies tend to prioritize the financial status of their partners, often seeking monetary benefits before fully committing to a relationship.
The star of “Bae Beyond Borders” expressed a stark contrast between South African women and their Nigerian counterparts.
She asserted that South African women are more genuine in their affections, emphasizing that financial wealth is not a decisive factor for them when choosing a partner.
“We South African women, if we like a guy, let’s say a Nigerian guy, we will not hide our feelings. You don’t even have to start spending money before I can do anything with you. If I like you, I like you. It’s genuine,” Gumede stated.
She went on to highlight that South African women are more open to relationships based on emotional connections rather than financial considerations.
Gumede explained that even if a man doesn’t have significant financial resources, South African women are willing to engage in a relationship as long as he is making an effort.
However, she claimed that Nigerian girls, in her observation, often prioritize financial gain before entering into a relationship.
According to Gumede, Nigerian women may seek material support and financial stability from their partners, making money a significant factor in their romantic decisions.
While these remarks have sparked controversy, it’s important to note that individual perspectives on relationships can vary, and these comments represent the personal views of Malibongwe Gumede.
The podcast episode has stirred discussions on social media platforms, with diverse opinions emerging on the perceived cultural differences in relationship dynamics.
