Bride price is the sum of money or quantity of goods paid to the bride’s family from the groom’s family for their marriage, done in some tribes/societies.
To this effect, Toni Tones has waded in on the controversy surrounding the “bride price” culture which is predominant in Africa saying that women are not properties.
In her tweet, she is calling for the abolition of bride price because women are not to be sold.
Toni Tones tweeted;
Scrap bride price culture. Women are not property to be sold.
