‘They won’t even speak to you if you don’t have money’

Malibongwe Gumede, a South African reality TV star and radio presenter, claimed that Nigerian women enter into romantic relationships solely to extort money from their partners.

She said that South African women approach men they admire without considering their financial status, unlike the Nigerian ladies.

The “Bae Beyond Borders” star spoke in the latest episode of the Frankly Speaking podcast co-hosted by Nollywood actor, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu.


Gumede said, “We South African women, if we like a guy, let’s say a Nigerian guy, we will not hide our feelings. You don’t even have to start spending money before I can do anything with you. If I like you, I like you. It’s genuine.

“But with Nigerian girls, what I’ve noticed is that first, they need to suck everything out of you. That’s what I’ve noticed about Nigerian girls. They love money too much. You know, South African girls, we can love you even if you don’t have money, as long as you are trying.

“But with Nigerian girls, it’s all about the money. If you don’t have money, they won’t even speak to you. What will they be gaining from you if you don’t have the money to maintain their lifestyles?”
