Popular actor and comedian, Ime Bishop Umoh better known as Okon Lagos, has lampooned men who abandon their lovers after collecting their money to relocate.
Reacting to the viral news of the man who married someone else after his girlfriend gave him her savings to travel abroad, he referred to them as weak men.
According to him, the traditional role of a man was to provide and protect his woman and any man who failed as such was not a real man.

“Generation of weak men! If she wasn’t good enough for you to marry, keep as wife and flaunt, then her money to you for relocation abroad shouldn’t have been good enough as well. Taking advantage of one’s vulnerability is very undue, immoral and cowardly!
I’m not in a place to determine absolute rightness or wrongness of actions and inactions. I am simply opining that one should not use another.
If you are man, be a man. The traditional gender role of a man is tied to provision and protection.
It’s not a woman’s traditional responsibility to do that. If she does, then it is a privilege and not a right. If you can’t provide for and protect yourself and all of yours (your woman primarily included), then you aren’t a real man! You are merely a male human being. It is very disgraceful, cowardly and weak for a man to cede his core, traditional, gender role(s) to a woman and worse off in doing so, you fool her in the process just because she is vulnerable! That’s so low bro.”
