South African reality TV star and radio presenter, Malibongwe Gumede, has sparked a massive debate on social media following her comment that Nigerian women go into romantic relationships to extort money from their partners.

Speaking during the latest episode of the Frankly Speaking podcast co-hosted by Nollywood actor, Chinedu Ani Emmanuel, aka Nedu, the SA reality star said unlike Nigerian ladies, South African women do not consider financial status of a man before going into a relationship.

The “Bae Beyond Borders” star 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?”

This comment has since attracted a debate online with some Nigerians supporting her claim while others disagreed.

Below are some reactions;

@sami_oamen: She needs to be protected, she’s saying the truth.

@Billy__Chapman: I have been with women from Southern Africa, I can say for a fact that she's right about Nigerian women, most of them are like that, as described

@LupinIkenga: She’s spitting facts, hard facts

@glorious_nnenna: At least our men have gold
That’s why South African women love Nigerian men

@fadererah_: Lol. She should go and sit down abeg

@ObaOlugbenga: Absolutely! Nigerian girls know their worth and value. There’s nothing wrong with being financially independent and ambitious.

@ObaOlugbenga: Money makes the world go round, and Nigerian girls know how to chase those dreams! Don't underestimate their hustle!
