A Malawian man is presently receiving the bashing of his life on Twitter. His crime, he decided to shower accolades on the lady he would be getting married to this weekend.
The man identified as Bob Phondo had taken to micro-blogging site Twitter to extol the virtues of his fiancee and listed 10 outstanding things she had done for him as they prepare to walk down the aisle.
It was gathered that the couple would be getting married this weekend, the elated groom in a Twitter thread decided to share with the world the benevolence of the woman he would be spending the rest of his life with, but Twitter users went wild over the thread.
“I wanna share 10 things about this woman before we wed this weekend;
“1. When I met her I had no place to stay. I was sleeping on a couch at a friend’s house. And she knew.
“2. I found a place later on, and she helped paying my rent for months.
“3. She got me my first car ever.
“4. My laptop got damaged and I needed it so much at the time so I could work on my things in order to earn something. She gave me hers.
“5. She covered most costs for our dates for a year.
“6. She invested in our first two businesses together. And opted for me to run them full time
“7. I never met her mom until when I brought my family to meet hers.
8. She celebrated and congratulated me for any penny I made at the time, even when it was as little as $10.
9. She supported everything I was trying to do to make ends meet. Whether it earned us money or not.
“10. Though I’m very stable and all that now, I know she doesn’t really care about those things.
“She cares about me solely. I know she’d give me anything in the world if she had to, coz she has proved it over and over again Ladies and gentlemen, that’s the kinda woman I’m marrying.”
It seems the tweet didn’t go down well with some Twitter users, mostly women, who lambasted him for being so broke and living off a woman.
Some trolls described him as the wife, while some said the lady is adopting him and not marrying him.
Some also described his story as rare and said there is nothing to be proud of about it.
However, some social media users have spoken in defense of the man over his viral tweet that has been retweeted over 9,000 and liked over 25,000 times.
See some of the reactions:
I guess there’s nothing wrong with her doing these things but did you have to embarrass both yourself and your wife online in front of strangers ?
Where is the tact and discretion ?

Reading the comments I can see why a good bit of y’all women single…. y’all look at generousity as a weakness. When it’s actually a strength being selfless has a greater reward than selfishness. But y’all continue being single.

This is so pathetic and embarrassing. I feel sorry for her and all the pick-me’s in the world that feel like they have to raise a man in order to marry his ass. Meanwhile, what do you do for her outside of suck the marrow from her bones?

Men often only relate the goodness and value of women in what they do for them, not who the women are.
I’m not sure I’ve seen a more gratuitous display of exactly that in this post.
She needs to RUN.

I feel ashamed of my specie called WOMAN. Instead them to learn from this story, they’re asking questions like they work with the FBI. It’s obvious that my specie of human cannot be helped except they make the effort to change voluntarily.

The responses to this thread shows equality as touted by most women is a myth. If a woman relentlessly supporting her man is seen as this unforgivable [something financially stable men do regularly & is seen as “awwwn goals 😍😘”].
You love to see it.https://t.co/DN0X8xGEhI

“He paid I &my siblings school fees up to university +our parents rent for 8yrs but I’m no longer in love with him”
Ladies— do you hon! You didn’t force him to do all that!
“I’m marrying the woman that made me all I am”
Ladies— shameless man! You’re marrying your mother!
