Banky W on Marrying Children
Banky W, who married actress, Adesua Etomi, via a tweet has rubbished the fact that some Nigerian men marry children in this time and age. This practice is particularly common in the Northern part of the country.
His detailed tweet reads ”Some Nigerians try to hide behind religion as the reason why they should be allowed to marry children. But if Saudi Arabia-the kingdom, the headquarters i.e. Mecca, can raise the age of marriage to 18 (because it’s the right thing to do) then Nigeria has no excuse #Timeup”
This is actually one of the most important discourses in Nigerian society. The way Banky W addressed it has got people talking.
