Didi Ekanem has taken to social media to advise relationship advisers and motivational speakers to stop making money the yardstick of a good relationship.
According to the 32-year-old Nollywood actress and a model who was born in Akwa Ibom State in south southern Nigeria, the relationship advisers and motivational speakers should allow people to date whoever they want to date because dating a broke guy is not a sin, hence, they should stop misleading young women.
Adding that their destiny is different, and if their mothers did not marry broke men, they wouldn’t be where they are now, so if you are lucky your man is taking care of you, don’t make others feel they are unlucky.
Taken to her official verified Instagram handle, she wrote;
“You see this 2021 we are entering so, abeg my fellow sisters, no relationship motivational nonsense. Allow people to date who they want to date. If our mothers did not marry our broke fathers then, we will not be here. If you are lucky to find a man that takes care of you, lucky you then but don’t feel the need to make other women feel like they are unlucky because their destiny is different. Money is good but don’t make it a yardstick for a good relationship. Stop calling men broke. If they become armed robbers now, you will complain. If they become yahoo boys, you will say God forbid, I can’t marry a yahoo boy, yet you call them broke. A broke man today will become rich tomorrow. All the rich men you see and hear of today were once broke, yet women still married them. It’s not a sin to date a broke man, stop misleading young women please.”
