Meanwhile, a Nigerian lady simply known as Kemi, has said she no longer buys gifts for men due to what she observed which is that they are unappreciative.

She took to her Twitter page and shared past experiences with two of her former boyfriends in a bid to drive home her point.

Kemi said she bought a shirt for one of her exes only for her to visit his house some other day and see that he has turned it to rag.

She also narrated how she gifted another boyfriend a birthday cake but he gave out the pastry to his neighbours in her presence.

According to her, these incidents are what formed the basis for her decision and ever since then she has not given a single gift to any man.

Kemi tweeted; ”I stopped buying gift for men since my two worst experiences. I got a tshirt for the first one and the next time I visited, it was his rag, I got a birthday cake for the second one and he gave it out to his neighbors in my presence. Ever since then I vowed never to get men gifts.”

When netizens started lambasting her, saying it was a lousy reason for not giving her boyfriends anything, she replied;

”Everyone trying to defend what’s not and I can’t reply to all so I will just put this here. Regardless of what ever.. those things costs me money. A little gratitude would go a long way even if it’s pretending.”

When @emmofie asked; So if they have been buying you iPhones, bags, shoes, expensive hangouts they should jump up because you bought them a N700 tshirt?

@TheOnlyKemi said; “For your information, they have never given me a penny.. and no it wasn’t 700 naira T-shirt, I’m not your cheap girlfriend.”
