Popular Nigerian media personality, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, better known as Nedu, has asserted that marriage has lost its original purpose and has become a means for some women to escape poverty.
Nedu made this assertion while reacting to the divorce saga between Moroccan footballer, Achraf Hakimi, and his Spanish wife, Hiba Abouk.
Recall that Hakimi’s wife is reported to have asked for half of the footballer’s property after she filed for divorce, but to her shock, the court told her that her husband had nothing, as all his fortune was in his mother’s name.
In a video he shared on his Instagram page, Nedu noted that marriage is dead and that women have now turned it into a poverty alleviation scheme.
According to him, Abouk married Hakimi because she envisaged that after some years in the relationship, she would seek a divorce and leave with half of his fortune.
To corroborate his assertion, he added that the richest woman in the world today got her wealth through a divorce.
“I no know if una don see that video or the message or the pictures of that PSG footballer wey them dey call Hakimi wey e be say him be 24-year-old and his wife dey ask for divorce. And the divorce wey she dey ask for, she dey talk say 50 percent of wettin the guy get make them give her.
“You see say marriage don die? In fact, if people believe anything for marriage before, the thing wey dey go on now with marriage for inside the whole world, people no want enter marriage again. Na most women, some of una, na e dey make some people no want enter marriage because una don turn the thing to poverty alleviation scheme.”
