Ace stand-up comedian, Alibaba, has contributed to the viral discourse about what a woman must ‘bring to the table’ in a relationship.
He said what ladies bring to the table shouldn’t be limited to money as they can also offer respect, understanding, connections amongst other things.
The topic grew more prominent after Big Brother Naija star, Tolanibaj said she brings nothing to romantic relationships except her body.
But Alibaba, while speaking on the Honest Bunch Podcast, pointed out that money does not have to be a priority when stating the qualities that women have to offer.
The ‘King of Comedy’ encouraged ladies not to be angry if their significant others asked about their contributions.
“What you bring to the table doesn’t have to be cash. Sometimes it is Understanding, respect, and money management.
“I have a friend who mentioned that he asked a lady one time and they’ve been dating and he said, you know, I’ve looked at this relationship really and I want to know what you’re bringing and the lady was like, why would you ask me what you’re bringing?
“He said some people will bring understanding to the table and that’s all that matters. Some people will bring encouragement to the table.”
“There’s one time they they came to arrest one guy. What did the woman bring to the table? Networking, she called one person, called another person and said don’t worry… like 30 minutes later the vehicle that took him brought him back to the house”.
