Whether Na One Naira!…Yeah Right!

Published

 on

Undoubtedly, the track “One Naira” off Nigerian rap sensation, MI’s sophomore album MI2 is easily a fan favourite. Coming off a much anticipated, yet not-quite-up-to-par with his hit debut album. The track dwells on the idyllic topic of romance with or without finance. Well, as nice and as well-meaning as it may sound, One Naira tries to sell us a lie – the lie that love (the true one as well as the fake one) does not require money.

Like any Nigerian who listened to music in the 80s, African American songstress Gwen Guthrie said it all in her 1986 hit, Ain’t Nothin’ Goin’ on But the Rent: men have to have a J-O-B if they want to be with her or any woman for that matter. Money, excuse me, plenty money is certainly a sine qua non in matters of the heart for without it, like erstwhile rapper Freestyle said in his track Money, “Woman cannot gel!” Allow me to illustrate.

At the university, my friend Ayo met a very lovely and pretty girl, let’s call her Shade. Ayo and Shade became good friends and he carried a torch for her. At the time however, Shade was in a relationship that lasted all through university, so Ayo bid his time and waited for his chance. His chance came at graduation when Shade broke up with her boyfriend. He said that it was as if heaven had smiled down upon him; finally Shade was his. They served in different states and they tried to see each other as often as possible. They would take long walks, hold hands and declare their love for each other. They talked about their plans for the future as he said he had every intention of spending the rest of his life with her. She said she felt the same way, and things could not have been better. They declared their love for each other saying all the sweet nothings – truths and lies – that accompany such tender moments. And of course she said what I am sure most women have said at one time or the other: “I love you and I want to spend the rest of my life with you. It doesn’t matter even if we don’t have any money…money is not a big deal…I could live under the bridge with you if that was our only option, just as long as I am with you!” And did Ayo believe her? Hmm…he did o! Of course he had no plans of residing anywhere near a bridge or flyover but it seemed very reassuring to know that Shade was someone who would support him even if he didn’t have much; someone who would not push him into doing things that he could not do. Alas, Ayo was wrong. Only four months post-service, and no job, Shade told him that he was not ambitious. Ouch!!! Whatever happened to “staying with me under the bridge?” The writing was definitely on the wall. Well, needless to say things did not work out between them as I guess there were a few issues that one naira could not solve.

Funny enough, I find that it is always the women who are the ones who make such promises. It is not like the guys made them make such commitments at the threat of breaking up with them now? So why even bring it up? Truth be told, (responsible) guys know that they need to have money to take care of a woman; they wouldn’t want to date or marry a woman only to have her suffer. Man is meant to be the primary provider, with the woman acting as a help-meet. So we don’t need such declarations! Or I could be wrong o; maybe it serves to add weight to the depth of feeling and emotions being felt by the woman. Maybe guys see it as an ego boost when they imagine that their girlfriends or wives would not leave them even if they had just one naira!

We can excuse the relationships because after all as some guys would say, “Na me be her papa?” But money is important in every relationship, especially in marriage as the man has to provide and care for his wife. Truth be told, most women today are not even willing to settle for ‘potential’ – you know the intelligent guy that has a good first degree and has the potential to make it in life. They would prefer ready-made guys. MI raps about how his babe should stick with him “although the money is a maybe”! Laugh Out Loud!! All I can say is that he has keyed into the seemingly romantic notion of love without limits and turned it into a hit song. Sharp guy. I have seen too many marriages shake and crumble because the man had challenges providing for his wife and/or family. The irony is that this one naira part is actually part of the traditional Christian wedding vows, remember “for richer, for poorer”? Or maybe they should take that part out of the vows, like a girl I met said with all seriousness, “If he can’t take care of me, why bother?”

So in all seriousness, please, let’s not deceive ourselves here. There is no such thing as “romance without finance.” I daresay money is what makes the romance sweet sef; it is what oils the gears of love. Or do you want to be trekking when you can jump BRT; or enter BRT when you can enter okada; or enter okada when you can take a ride in a taxi? Guys please do not be deceived when a woman tells you such things like what Waje is crooning in One Naira o! it is just empty, sweet nothings and should not be taken seriously or else you might just get the shock of your life. And ladies, please don’t tell me it is a euphemism. Stop deceiving us, thank you.

    I agree with u somehow cos to marry, there has to be some financial stability. However, a woman should know and be prepared to carry the responsibilities if the need arises…Like I have had to carry my family for about a year when hubbys business just kiceked off and I must say that i never regretted it. Infact i get praised everyday for it and the benefits that come after are definitely rewarding……

    In this millenium. we have a lot of silly men who make their sole responsibility to make money. I find it an excuse to neglect other responsibilities in the home. No one has the formula but i damn sure know money doesnt make a man. Now I will be foolish to marry him poor cuz i am not sure what reward that brings. however, him having a range rover and a house in the subs is not a prerequisite for me. He just cant selfish as i am not the one to explain to my kids every night that daddy isnt home because he has to work! im sorry but i believe we have lost the “companionship” element of marriage. All some Lagos couples seem to do these days is attend weddings. *eye roll* ughhh side note why exactly do we give men extra credit for not being bums. YOU SHOULDNT BE A BUM. Women are way to quick to say “he is a good guy” it makes me sick. *sigh* ladies it aint easy being independent! QUESTION!

    mehn, poverty is not an option nowadays oh, even my mum has been not-so-subtly hinting that i should not bring any man that cannot “take care of me well”…whatever happened to building with your man? oh right, i forgot – when some men start having a little change in their pockets, they tend to dump the women that stuck with them when they had nothing. But then again, marrying an already-made man has its own wahala. Do you know how he made the money, or doesn’t that matter anymore these days? Things like this make a girl confused jor. This marriage business gan sef….

    it’s a fact love don’t cost a thing but let’s not deceive ourselves money can’t buy you love but it sure can buy her prada bags, movie tickets, vacation to UK and all other accessories that don’t come cheap and which definetely make her happy( what then is love when you can’t provide for her).
    Money is like a sixth sense: you can make any sense with the other five withot it.
    Why do single girls flock around married men? They are always blabbing about how caring they are and stuffs, check it very well it’s only the rich ones who can provide for them that are tagged nice and caring not the broke ones o.hmmm
    Shit attracts flies…magnet attracts metal…money attract women…so easy.
    whether na one naira..Yeah right…even if she stays with you without money, chances are she would cheat at some point( emotionally or sexually) when it becomes unbearable for her. though I hate to generalize,it’s the women thing only few out there who wouldn’t compromise when the cheques stop clearing.

    BUAHAHAHAHA! Love this article and you’re right. I know I myself have said that “money doesn’t matter” and I believe it to a certain extent. The fact of the matter though, like you pointed out, is that a man should be able to take care of himself and his family. Unfortunately, especially in this uncertain economy, it’s proving a little bit harder and a lot of women are pushed into the roles of being the primary breadwinner (these are truly strong women).

    I agree with the article where you say that we say such statements as “money doesn’t matter – through thick or thin, richer or poorer” to emphasize our feelings for men. And we may actually mean and believe it when we make those statements. Truth is, a lot of men make it a point to determine whether a woman is after their money or not. So therefore, it only makes sense for us to reiterate our “nonchalance” whether we truly mean it or not.

    However, when it really comes to down to it, we were mostly brought up with our fathers taking care of their families and we grow up to “expect” the same of our future spouses. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that expectation. Even the bible says a man should take care of his family (1 Timothy 5:8).

    As for your poor friend Ayo, pele. But we only know his side of the story. I know he’s your friend, but was he actively looking for work? Too many men become complacent and lazy and pretend to look for work while bemoaning the pitiful economy. Maybe that’s what “Shade” was seeing from him? I dunno – I wasn’t there.

    Anyways, I feel like I’m rambling all to say NICE ARTICLE! We need a rebuttal from a lady 🙂

    Me, the only thing I saw here was “Coming off a much anticipated, yet not-quite-up-to-par with his hit debut album.” Says who TJ? Speak for yourself jor! LOL. MI2 is a one of a kind album.

    Anyway, to the topic at hand, all these problems arise when the individuals in question have not been saved by Jesus Christ. While lack of money may cause some friction in a saved couple’s home, the woman will not sweat her husband (and if she does, she will eventually repent) because true Christians understand that God, not man is the actual provider. So if times are hard, it is because God would have it so. So I do believe that there are women out there who would stay with their husbands whether he has N1 or 1 million.

    while i agree that it’s definitely problematic for a woman to dismiss a man simply because he can’t afford to buy her a prada bag, don’t you think saying that “man is meant to be the primary provider, with the woman acting as a help-meet” (i.e. chip in when you can, but the man is meant to shoulder the burden of your well-being) is what is encouraging this sort of thinking amongst nigerian women? we should focus on developing ourselves and providing for our own monetary needs and those of our families lest we continue to be implicitly called gold-diggers in articles such as this.

    ehm well written article but please i beg to differ! Call me naive or pretentious but i think i can stay with a gut without too much. I have no plans in this world to be poor and i have made a decision to work to dust to ensure that i live the good life so if i am so blessed, why can i not comfortably stay with a guy who is not rich especially if i am madly in love with him? I am of the opinion that there is no hard and fast rule that finance goes with Romance. There must be exceptions. That said, i will still prefer to have the man take care of my needs though!

    I love the song sha.
    But it’s not exactly realistic.
    Just like chris brown singing “cos if i gat you i don’t need money, i don’t need cars, girl you my heart” can’t remember the name of the song sef.
    I feel that when you have a woman you truly adore, you want to work sooooooooooo hard to give her everything.
    However i do not subscribe to materialistic love.
    Love should be so much more than what you can give and get from each other. The thing is people dont know how to balance it, they are either too materialistic or too *unmaterialistic*

He then retorted that he KNEW that was why I wasn’t a big fan of the song. its so refreshing to hear that I am not the only one that feels that way.

    I would have read the entire article but I just couldn’t get past that unnecessary comment in the beginning:

    “”Coming off a much anticipated, yet not-quite-up-to-par with his hit debut album””

    It just goes to show how much bad blood runs through some people and unprofessional they can be. Seriously of what relevance is this malignant ‘nugget of wisdom’ to the article? Since you want to take it there, where is your own album? Or albums?

      He might be entitled to an opinion but not make a snide side comment that he refuses to back up as he delves into the main crux of his article.
      If he wants to criticize the album he should do a proper review or stick to the subject at hand.
      That line in the article smacks of cowardice.

    In ur late teens and early 20s, its easy for a woman to make such statements and completely mean them. For one daddy ***insert whoever fits the bill here*** takes care of the important/basic stuff (rent, food, fees, allowance etc). Then comes graduation & b4 u know it, all that security is YANKED off! (some earlier than others). Alas, the hues in the rainbow dim faster than usain on a race track. By then, you’re singing a different tune. Some go from classical to garage in nanosecoonds while others gradually yield to R ‘n’ B, pop or hip hop. Plus, all her diaper buds are frosted in tiffany diamonds & louboutin scrapers! Her grass don yellow/brown finish! You no fit blame the babe (giggles!). Personally, I’d stick with a dude with palpable-about-2-burst-success who has proven time & again that he would ‘spoil’ me with the ‘little’ (coz we all know that’s relative) he has. Better a barack obama back in d day than a chris brown of 2day! But, a man who can’t take care of his family is worse than an imbecile (na Bible talk am). Its left 4 d woman to pick needs, wants or the variations of shades inbetween

    In a relationship i feel like there are so many moving parts, money being one of them. I dont think money alone should or could make any woman happy. Also be aware that if you base your relationship with any man on financial gratification you run the ask of being a purchased item which will only be as useful as when the next best thing comes along. BTW i like the song and i think the difference between this album and “talk about it” is that MI is experimenting a lot with some of the tracks .

    At the end of the day it is character that counts.
    I have seen couples who gullied when they were broke and are still going strong in wealth today. I have seen some where the man changed wife like he changed cars when wealth came. And i have seen women that married into wealth and are very unhappy because the man’s family considered her a social climber.
    If your spouse has a good character, money will not be the main issue. Not saying that it isn’t important because it brings a lot of stress, but it’s better to have someone bear the burden that carrying it alone.

    wow. i met lots of girls in lagos recently and i made it a point of fun to enquire what make them tick. i often ask them what they want in a man and the answers are ridiculous. there is no problem in marrying a made man or a man that can provide for all your needs but just remember that if a man that find you as a contributor to his life as in he is the only one who provids for the family and still need to be there to be a husband, a good father and all then you are so easily replaceable. one girl in particular said what she wanted in a man are good sex, he must be able to take her on holiday, shopping and buy her expensive things….and me thinks anyone can do that and your arse is toast. I would rather be comfortable that you can provide for yourself and let me provide for you than you just being a bum and start quoting Timothy 5:8 Get real ladies.

    EVERYONE male and female all have MINIMUM criteria for who they want to be with and those criteria and its thresholds vary from person to person. Some require a “made man”, others “potential” and others just need someone with a J-O-B. Either or, the woman who only requires “potential” is not more loving or less concerned about money that the one who wants to see you “made” first. Some men also want a woman who can cook proper isi-ewu or egusi or they are not interested, others want just someone who will know that Sunday is football day. We all have our “criteria”, whether its tall, dark, handsome, and rich, or slim, attack, defense and “home training”. Of course I know there are more and less important criteria for everyone but we ALL have them. There are people who require you to be one step away from the seminary in your faith and others are fine with you just going to church/mosque every week and all those in between and outside for religion.
    Whatever it may be, it is their relationship criteria and they are entitled to it, if you don’t like it, don’t date or marry them but you need to understand before you get involved and know they are not lying. Do your homework! Finally yes there are women who truly believe in what Waje is saying and aren’t looking for one million. I don’t know about one naira o, but maybe we can start with hundred naira, that can at least buy fanta abi

    Well written and refrenced. Money is the engine that drives love in any relationship.A woman is naturally vrey loyal to her man but when it comes to money issues,she wants to be taken care off, even if she is well off than her man she still wants to spend his money.

    money is important in a relationship but we really need 2 ask ourselves is d money going 2 buy u happiness?mi’s song was just a description of true love(where mny is nt necessarily an issue)so why criticize him?if u can stick 2 a poor guy gud 4 u n if u can’t gud 4 u. There’s no standard formula 4 love.I ve seen families where d woman is d breadwinner n they re still happy n I ve seen some where d man provides their needs but is never around. Women wats wrong with u working hard 2 make ur money instead of depending on men every time? Every human being wants 2 b taken care of whether male/female so women take care of ur men n men take care of ur women n let’s stop making money an issue in our relationships. It a song meant 2 entertain us n it sure did entertain me. I luv d song. And tj d fact dat u dnt agree doesn’t make it wrong k.

    I can take dating a guy with no car but if i get into that taxi with you and you alight before me and say “baby get money and pay the driver” your ass is done, you are out of my life that very moment! Love without money indeed!!!

    kathryn,,,i totally agree. if he gets out bfore me, i am sprinting ahead of him. let the taxi man ‘jack’ him for d money. i work very hard to pay my bills and keep myself in d lifestyle i enjoy now. no apologies. but if a man wants to eat my money….he is gonna find himself on the dusty kerb. im not that desperate to keep a man with my own money, dats wat sugar mommies r for, i sure as hell aint one. a real man will work hard and take care of his woman. my dad did it. so he should. a guy once said he wanted to marry me and when i asked wat he had put in place he flared up. i asked cos the last thing i saw him do was repair electrical wires? he lost his temper and said God would provide. i am so sick of men saying God will provide. he already did by giving u a brain. use it. i am not going to put my life and lives of my kids in the hands of a man who never has money. thats suicide.let him provide basics like shelter and food. we can both pay d kid;s fees,. but who handles house maintenance, my maintenance, hospitals, vacations, inlaws, unforseen events? d list is endless…so u see y u need money to make it work. one naira my foot!

    who wrote this piece ,did a marvelous job.Everything about it is true,i remember dating a Nigerian girl in the Uk,she told me stuffs that that were good to the ear to listen too like,”i cant imagine life without u,i would just die without u,u are the best thing that has happened to me ,u are d only thing working in my life”. All this changed when i lost my job,and during that period she even said another beautiful thing like i love u and i will never leave u.A month later i noticed changes and she told me she doesn’t love me again ,i found it unthinkable and was thinking do people say what they don’t mean emotionally and i was thinking Who does that? so its very pathetic .

    18 – 25 – Whether na 10million or 20million, Honey U GAT ME!

    25 – 35 – My rules neva change bobo Whether na 10million or 20million, Honey U GAT ME!
    but from 35 – 45 Omo the song go get remix

    Typical Nigerian girls on this page. Latter dem go dey ask “weting the guy see for whitey?” Naija guys, take note. If you ever think of hooking up with a Nigerian girl, you’d better get her while it’s “one Naira” in your pocket, because if you wait till it’s “one million” you should be prepared to live like 2face {now you understand why he lives as he does. He also believes there’s a “True Love,” he just understands that you can’t get that in Nigeria with “One million” in your pocket}. As for the hoes on this page, the sooner you look past what’s with the man and look to what’s in the man, the quicker you net yourself one, “one Naira” today can always become “one million” tomorrow!

    you don’t expect me to suffer in my dad’s house and then suffer in my hubby’s house.Me i can love 4 one naira. It all depends kinda we can build the wealth together aftarall u require two heads. Some ladies are too materialistic.Some parents wont allow their children to marry a one naira man talk more of a twenty five naira man. Maybe cause im a teenager cuz im 16 but thats my thinking and i know i can marry a one naira man

    Naija babes and Gwen Guthrie sha. Well, I don’t agree with you, or any of these comments anyways. Of course a man needs to provide for his family, but money can’t be a prime consideration for an eternal relationship. There will be hard times, sometimes, for both women and men in a relationship. What about times when the woman can’t conceive? Is the man expected to show understanding in that situation, or kick the woman out?

    REAL love dont cost a thing.. but Pride will kill the love if you dont see it soon enough. Yes it is possible to fall in love out of status…however both couples must be prepared to work together to build a better future.

    I disagree with those that say its a womans thing I have heard men and seen them shower gifts on a woman because they thought thats what she wanted. If you are steady with a woman and she respects you and God she will drink garri with you if your upfront and shes really into you. Paid my exes daughters school fees theres no cap on what real love will do
