Kenyan Dates: A shocking date video has emerged online showing single women mocking a young gentleman for earning a Sh. 20,000 salary.
The unidentified gentleman is heard explaining that he earns Sh. 20,000 from his job as a cyber cafe attendant. Out of that salary, he uses Sh. 5,000 as rent and Sh. 5,000 for food.
The women on the date video are heard wondering how he can maintain them on such a salary. In a phrase of mockery, they are heard asking him whether he lives in a toilet!
In the date video, the women then proceed to explain that the money they make is theirs and as result only the man’s cash should be mutually used. One of the women is seen explaining that she uses her Sh. 40,000 purely on make up and clothing.
The date video has gone on to lay bear the growing commercialization of love and relationships.
Below is the astonishing date video:
“No romance without finance,” it is said – and when R&B singer Gwen Guthrie recorded this mega hit in 1986, it generated a storm of controversy, accused of promoting materialism and ‘gold diggers’.
But Guthrie herself said that the song – whose title is actually “Ain’t Nothin’ Going On But The Rent’ – was not intended to suggest that a man only requires money to be dateable, or to make a relationship work. Instead, it was intended to motivate her partner into being responsible for maintaining financial stability and equality. Kenyan Dates.
