Via her Twitter handle, @RejiYates, she revealed that the man earns about N100-200k yearly and did not want his woman to earn better for him. He asked for her hand in marriage and instructed that she resigns from her N34 million yearly job to be with him.
However, she politely turned him down but he went crazy and threatened to report the grown woman to her parents.
Seeking for advice, she wrote, “Am I in the wrong here. Small story. This guy in Nigeria that knows my family asked if it would be okay for him to speak to my parents about marriage and I said no. I don’t have an interest in marrying him. He asked why and I have my reasons. He focused on the financial reason”.
“I simply said we aren’t in the same financial place and I don’t think it’s fair on both of us. One , I don’t want to limit my lifestyle and he shouldn’t have to be pressured to earn more.”.
“It’s just unfair for both of us imo. He asked if I would give up my work for love and I said absolutely not. I explained I love my job, it’s something that brings me happiness and makes me who I am.”
“It’s also part of my personal brand so it simply cannot go. He said my reasoning is not realistic 🙃”.
“He gave me a range of his annual salary in naira which was around 100,000 – 200,000 which is fine and I said that isn’t bad. That’s what he earns and good on him. I gave mine in naira which is 28 million – 34 million and he said I can’t earn more than my husband.”
“I called him insecure and he said a man is suppose to be the provider and there is nothing insecure about that. So I told him to go and provide for someone within his bracket.”
“He can’t provide for me so he said he will report me to my family. Sorry am I in the wrong?”
“Cause 🙁 I don’t care if he reports me cause my family would legit laugh. The mentality alone is even madness. Why can’t I earn more and why would I give up that salary and work?”
“He said women of now a days wants to be like men 🤣🤣🤣. Is this what Nigerian women deal with?”

@Kella_TheTechDj said, “I seriously reject him for you, God forbid”.
@_vxnne_ said, “Weird behaviour. You can’t meet me at level 10 then tell me to come down to level 5 and accommodate you.”
@MsAmara_Ziaku said, “Just audacious! Please he should find some to provide for in that tax bracket and leave you alone”.
@ade_kunle_ said, “Sorry was the 100k in Naria per annum or pounds/dollars? Out of curiosity”.
@namedAntoinette said, “With this mentality, you were gracious to even have a conversation with him sef.”
@OmoleOHIOLE said, “I like this particular person already 😂🤣”.
@mage_racheal said, “That man would have made your life a living hell and disrespected you.”
@_MegaEsther said, “You are not wrong at all! You clearly both have opposing views on a number of important topics including finances. So like you rightly said he should go and find someone that is on the same page as him. And tbh the whole reporting to the family thing is already sounding 🥴”.
