Isa Sulaiman, a 23-year-old Nigerian who will soon marry a 46-year-old American woman, has revealed that Nigerian women do not know the true meaning of love.
The young man and his lover Janine Sanchez met on Instagram ten months ago. They met for the first time last weekend when the mother of two visited him in Kano.
In an interview with BBC Pidgin, Isa Sulaiman said: “The truth is that our women don’t know how to love. They don’t really know the meaning of true love. They always get involved out of interest. But if a white woman tells you that she loves you, she says it from the bottom of her heart.”
“We met when I started following her on Instagram. Every time she posted a picture, I liked it and commented on it. One day I found out that some guys were trying to scam her and I sent her a warning message. From that moment on, she understood that I was an honest person. It was that character that first attracted her to me.”
Isa also revealed that her family gave her the green light to marry Janine. They plan to get married in March before leaving for the United States.
“After the wedding in March, by the grace of God, we will go to the United States and I will look for work, go back to school and play on a football team.
For her part, Janine expressed her enthusiasm for the way she has been received since her arrival in Nigeria. She said she was thrilled that her in-laws accepted their union. “I met his family of over 100 people and I am glad they all approved our marriage.”
Janine, a chef at a restaurant in California, also revealed that she would return to the United States next month and return in March for their wedding.
