In a recent statement, Anita Adetoye, the ex-wife of Nollywood actor, Emmanuel Ikubese disclosed that she can’t date anyone below her tax bracket anymore and by extension sparked mixed reactions among internet users.
Anita during an interview made this known while on the podcast “Me her and everything else pod” hosted by actress Stephanie Coker.
In the video, Anita who was an invited guest alongside Tolu Bally on the podcast said in Nigeria being a successful woman or man means you attract several types of people.
Speaking further, Anita, a make-up artist said both men and women prefer to be with partners who they believe are doing well as they all believe that this will boost the relationship between them.
When she was asked if she can date someone below her her tax or pay grade, Anita who has been under Forbes 30Under30 said based on her experience she would never consider dating a man below her monthly pay.
According to Anita when she was dating someone below her tax bracket the person end up being a fasad, thereby corrupting her in the process while she is being the one providing the more in the relationship.

theluxurygirl_: Any man they tell you he likes you cause you are hardworking or he got attracted to you cause you do well …My sisters run ohhh cause shishi you no go see.
domingo_loso: We wey no dey your tax bracket no wan date you too. Abeg make everybody rest. As i dey i dey enjoy my life, no financial pressure from any umu nwanyi.
adeoluolatomide: Nigerians should learn to criticize constructively! It’s her choice and opinion; respect that! 🙄.
funferekoroye: Lmao 😂 women make a little money and can’t stop talking about 🤦🏾♂️ if Naija men only dated their pocket so many of you would still be using a Nokia 3310.
sojemina: Please Abeg she’s right !!!!! You will date a man based on love and “he has potential”. Only for you to start spending on things he should be able to afford. Like why am I buying you fuel? Or feeding you?? . This is totally different from spending on your man. If I can cover my basics , why can’t you cover us? If you can’t cover yours , how do you intend to share responsibilities equally?? Personally, I’m not dating anyone below my tax / pay grade. It’s too much headache.
tinukevibes: i cant even date someone thats not up to my standard abeg….dont be poor and come to my dm please.
omzynificent: So if you don’t use love to enter into a relationship, what do you use? You mean to tell me you would get into a relationship with someone you don’t feel anything for? Abeg make dem switch mic quickly.
bj_ryhmz: If men date women in their tax bracket too, 80% of women will be without a relationship, men have been changing ladies lives through relationship for ages both home and abroad, but when a lady is able to have small money, they’ll start talking about class. 😂😂.
