Linda Ikeji : Whose House? His Or Hers

By Ogoo "Mojimo" uzoma

Nigerian celebrity blogger, Linda Ikeji, has allegedly purchased a house in Banana Island, Ikoyi, for a whopping N600,000,000 (Six hundred  million Naira). Wow…look at all those zeros!
If this is true, then my sister don hammer...um…that’s Nigerian speak for THE BABE HAS HIT IT BIG! But knowing my people, the figure might have been exaggerated a little. The bottom line is Linda spent healthy amount of her hard earned cash on her new pad
The question raised by some guys on the internet was this – if she gets married, whose house will she and her husband move into? Hers or his? This caused an uproar among feminists and pseudo-feminists in the social media world…at least on that particular thread.
Now I’m no raging feminist, but this is the 21st century, the age of equal rights for all people, male or female, black or white. It beats me that people still think in that direction, that there are loads of men still not comfortable with a woman earning more than her man, owning more expensive property than her man. Beats me. Someone went as far as to advise me to never buy an expensive car so as not to chase away potential “suitors”. I had to double-check that I hadn’t gone through a time machine

Linda Ikeji or Jane Doe or whoever has every right to spend her money on any kind of asset she wants. When a husband comes along, the decision to be made on where they’ll call home is theirs.
It’s all well and good as long as there’re no egos or chauvinism to mar that decision.
