I plan to travel around Africa to search for a wife – Nigerian man

A young Nigerian man, Tolu Adesanmi, in a chat with Punch has disclosed that he is about to embark on a trip to several African countries, in search of a wife because he’s not impressed with Nigerian girls.

His comments came against the background of a recent viral picture which showed him home alone; and in which, he declared that he was single and searching.

He stated: “The viral post is actually still recent. I posted a picture of myself alone at home with a caption that I am single, on my personal Instagram page, and a blogger picked it up. Before I knew what was happening, it had gone viral.

“With the kind of job I do, I meet women every day; but the kind of women we have these days are those I tag as new generation ladies, and I cannot date them because the kind of woman that suits me is the type that can build a home and not someone who just wants to show off.

“As an African man, I do not want that kind of lady in my life. I am sorry if this comes out the wrong way but I would prefer not to settle with a lady from Nigeria, due to the challenges that come with the relationship.

“I would like if the woman is from an African country and in fact, there was a time I planned visiting some African countries to get a wife because I feel Nigerian girls are going to the extreme, especially with trends.

“I was planning to go to Sao Tome or Cape Verde and spend about three weeks there. I planned to meet new ladies and see new faces there because I feel that the mentality of the ladies there would be better than that of most Nigerian girls.”

He was asked if he was speaking that way because he had been hurt by a Nigerian girl; and he replied:

“Virtually every guy has been hurt by Nigerian girls and I have dated several Yoruba girls. But at the end of the day there were issues.

“Some of the ladies are becoming extremists with their feminism to the extent that you cannot talk to them or advise them; and at the end of the day, you would have no choice but quit the relationship. With the kind of job I do, I need peace of mind.”

He added: “As an entrepreneur, I would like to be with a strong lady that would support what I do. I do not want to end up with a model, make-up artistes because I believe they are everywhere, or a slay queen. “I want someone that I can build something concrete with, a future.”
