Churches are a dime a dozen especially in Lagos; literally everywhere you turn. And so are their very many programmes. And they have programmes for almost everything.

So when a church, Family Booster Ministries, released promotional materials for a ‘Singles & Married Conference’, it didn’t really seem out of the ordinary.

The controversial poster

Until some people looked closer at the poster and noticed things that are disturbing and annoying to them.

For example, smack in the middle there are two pictures of females juxtaposed against each other. The first on the left shows a lady posing for a selfie in what looks like a bathroom like most ladies do with caption ‘Dating Material’. The second on the right shows a lady dressed in a drab floral print in a traditional kitchen with the caption ‘Wife Material’.

Of course, many took offence to what they deemed as misogynist and perpetrating a stereotype.

If you don’t sit on that kitchen ‘ijoko’ and cook on a very low stove, you’re not wife material. I didn’t make the rules.

If marriage is reward for “good behaviour” as these ppl imply, why is d wife material always depicted as one suffering or managing poverty?

Can’t believe I’ve spent my whole adult life thinking I’m wife material when I’m only clearly dating material and a thot.
