Conversations on gender roles have never been scarce on Naija Twitter, a major part of this being the aspect of bills, financial responsibilities and who should pay for stuff in relationships and marriages.

Another episode of this – the most recent - has been triggered by a Nigerian woman in diaspora who claims, in a tweet posted on February 18, that when a man allows her pay for something, presumably during a date with him, she sees such man as nothing but shameless.

Unsurprisingly, the tweet sparked a myriad of reactions, some of these responses and opinions are shared below:

About equality and fairness in bearing financial burdens...

Overly dependent on men equal to being a leech?

How to show men you don't really need them for much

Some men don't really mind the shameless tag...


Men should pay money to feel worthy of a woman's attention?
