A skit maker, Bukunmi Adeaga-Ilori, also known as KieKie, has said she shares the rent with her husband.
The comic content creator said this on media personality Toke Makinwa’s ‘Toke Moments’ podcast. She insisted that it was ideal to share the rent with a man, saying a man couldn’t send the woman away if they both paid the rent.
“When I was dating my husband, my rent expired in September, and we were going to get married in January, so I didn’t bother renewing my rent. I just moved into his place. We had already done our introduction in June. So, we lived together for about four months, but the truth is that he was always busy, just like I was.
“How can you be living in a house and you are not paying rent? You can do some other things as the man, in fact, fly me to Dubai or Barcelona, and buy me a Fendi bag on my birthday, but I will be living in the house without paying rent? It is not possible.
“So that when we want to fight, you will carry the chair, and I will carry the table or any other thing because we are both paying house rent. We will share everything equally; you can’t tell me to ‘get out of your house,” she said.
