A Ghanaian lady has taken Micro-Blogging website, Twitter to pour enconium on Nigerian men, saying they are the best men in the whole of Africa. She also admonished Nigerian women for not knowing what they have.
She said Nigerian men are even better than her own countrymen. One of the reasons she gave is that Nigerian men respect the women in their lives and even when they cheat, they are discreet about it so as not to offend their women.
As expected, Nigerian men flooded her mentions after the post was shared to say they agree with her, but Nigerian women do not seem to agree and they said as much on Twitter.
Read their exchanges below ;
I don't understand why Nigerian ladies complain of their men, it's beyond me.
Hands down, Nigerian men are the best in Africa. Their mother, sister, wife/girlfriend(s), daughter & even mother in law they treat with maximum respect
Nigerian ladies, respect your men. Before I started moving with Nigerians, I used to think all men are the same, but as I made friends with Nigerians, I noticed all men aren't. It was very obvious in fact. The may Nigerian men talk and act to ladies is absolutely remarkable.
At first I thought they behave that way just to woo ladies. Turns out I was wrong again. Over the years, I've come to notice how 9ja men treat ladies in their life(Mother, Sister, Wife/Girlfriend, daughter) with absolute respect I began to envy.
Maybe all what I see on their movies are true after all. I can't watch from outside no more, so I started a relationship with a Nigerian, how different things became, it was like magic, saint like behavior. I couldn't believe my eyes, I was alert cos he may be working an angle. He could be playing games, but again I was wrong. After listening to conversations and gossips, I noticed that for them, it's a shame for a man to mistreat his lady. A 9ja man will say " give my woman the same respect you give me" honestly he doesn't get better
A typical 9ja man makes his lady presentable because he believes that how his peer will respect him as a man. Romantic stuff!!, he'll take care of his house and even if there's problem inside, outsiders will never notice.
His friends can not tell you nonsense as well cos they respect you the same way they respect their friend. It's also difficult not to get carried away with "our wife" or "first lady" title you are automatically given to you by his friends.
I had a friend that worked at a pub, she stared dating a Nigeria, one day she rushed to me and said, "it's this what you've been enjoying?" With happiness as her foundation. She has been a victim of household boxing in the past from your regularly Nii, Adjei and Kojo
She made a statement
"Even if they cheat, they do it with respect"
I burst into laughter, she said she caught him texting another girl, he apologized and bought her a gift. Enjoyment paaa. Nii will beat you for searching tru his phone
I remember I final statement that day,
"I can't date Ghana boys again, my level has changed "
I also remember one time when I went out with a Ghanaian, he's phone kept ringing, he gave me his phone and said "ebe my wife dey disturb me like this, tell her say she dey disturb "
I picked up my phone and made sure I used my braids to flog him while walking away in disgust. I felt bad for his wife cos initially I didn't know.
Just imagine such disrespect.
Gradually most of my friends now date Nigerians, and their testimony remains the same. My mum personally loves Nigerians she name me after one of her tenants when I was born. Currently she has 3 Nigerian tenants and I do talk with them a lot and I watch them closely
Closely enough to see the difference. My old her dresser came from South Africa and told me her own version of the same story. "9ja men in SA work hard for their family" they are always hustling. But kojo will walk round Accra with his friends and expect his gf to feed him
Hard Work and respect, we like
So 9ja ladies, if you like don't take them serious.
I know one thing for sure, if you let your men cross the border, they may never come back cos they'll be treated like kings elsewhere.
I'm yet to see a Nigerian girl and a Ghana guy relationship, even if there is, it's rare, because the girls can't go lower than the standard they are used to. But the 9ja boys always go for the Gh ladies cos we treat them like kings.
Please if you name is Nii or Kojo, mepaakyɛw don't be angry ok. I'm just playing
Respect to the few real Ghana kings your thread coming soon
Finally, I'm grown-up enough to know my bride price hasn't been paid. On that note, I'll enjoy it while it last
