Nollywood actress and media personality Toke Makinwa has described Nigerian men as “the best in the world.”
Makinwa made the revelation while speaking in the latest episode of her podcast, with her guest, a British media personality, Madame Joyce.
She said despite her criticisms of Nigerian men, they are better compared to their counterparts around the world, especially the United Kingdom.
In her words “No matter how I criticize Lagos men, Nigerian men are just simply badly behaved. But I [still] believe Naija men, in the [dating] pool are still the best around the world.
“What the UK girls are going through, I don’t understand. When all my cousins in the UK narrate their dating stories, it is bad.”
Affirming to her opinion, Her guest Madame Joyce, a British media personality replied: “Honestly, it is really bad. And I feel like its because we are so used to it, that is just the expectation over there. In Nigeria, somebody opened the car door for me, I was like, ‘Wow!’ UK boys hardly do that. Chivalry in London is so dead. The guys don’t have a lot of shame. There are still conversations about splitting the bills 50/50 over there. It happened to me once.”
