Chop my money

They say money can’t buy you love. But in Nigeria, it can get you the flashy car, nice clothes and fancy meals that can be just as thrilling. Maybe that explains why young Nigerian women are going for richer, older married men or, as they call them, Aristos.

In this week’s edition of Speak UP! young Nigerians tackle the tricky subject of love for money. Plus, a woman married for over three decades also shares her thoughts about old-school love and how the institution of marriage has changed over time. With so many young women marrying for money, we’re left wondering, is there still a chance for true love?

Speak UP! is an audio show in which young Africans discuss thorny social issues without pulling any punches. It is created by a selection of young hosts and producers in Zimbabwe, South Sudan, Rwanda, Nigeria and Kenya, working in partnership with local media organizations and RNW. Each edition of Speak UP! provides YOU with a chance to express yourself – because everybody wants to be heard.
