Before you lynch me, I'm not generalizing. But I won't be the first if I am. I've heard all sorts of things, some, from people who told me not to move to Abuja when I wanted to a few years ago...because I will not find a husband...because men don't marry Abuja girls...because Abuja girls are all prostitutes.
And then I've actually asked a few guys who live there; what's this thing about Abuja girls?
Basically what most of them say is that girls (and by girls you know I don't mean 'girls' literally right?) in Abuja would do anything for money.
They say they're willing to sleep with anyone, and will go to any lengths to get this 'anyone'.
They question how else a girl can afford to pay the house rent in Abuja on her own without any assistance from a sugar daddy.
They say the baffling thing is that most Abuja girls live in apartments where they pay rent of over 800k, they drive nice cars and live very comfortably, yet most of them do not have jobs or any apparent businesses. So how else do they fund these lifestyles, they question.
They say it's where all the politicians are which makes it very easy.
They say all the hustlers aka runs girls in Nigeria that want to hit it big all converge in the FCT and never leave.
They agree that there are those with wealthy parents but say "those ones are different, when you see them you'll know".
They also agree that not everyone single lady in Abuja lives that way but they argue that the 'clean' ones are extremely few.
So when Ladun Liadi posted these 5 disgusting things Abuja chics do for money (according to City People) and most of the people in the comment section were in agreement, of course I wondered Are Abuja Girls Really That Bad?
According to City People:
Do you know that quite a lot of babes who live in Abuja do not have any correct job that they do. Do you also know that very few of them have shops or any tangible work place they can point to as office, yes they live big and they drive flashy and exotic cars, live in very expensive apartments, , buy expensive things and travel abroad for holidays. These are the five things they do for money.
1) Sleeping With Dogs;
This debasing acts are mostly put together to form a part of the pornography business worldwide and the ladies involved are mostly paid in dollars.
The men mostly ask them to sleep with dogs while they record it with a camera.
2) Buying Mobile Numbers Of Top Celebrities;
Some of them go as far as buying mobile numbers of top celebrities and politicians from their friends and some family members for as high as N50,000 just to have a close contact with them. After achieving their aim, they tell the politician they have once met and he personally gave them his private line. Some of these men have believed them and have falling prey afterwards.
3) Dating White Guys
They purposely go around hanging out at places were rich white guys hang around just to meet them.
4) Giving Birth and selling their babies for money
5) Hanging out around high brow hotels.
I really don't care about the others. But #2! Buying phone numbers? The struggle is very real.
I'm not sure if I believe #1 and #4 but I believe #2 because when I was in my second year I know someone who paid another student for the phone number of a then South South Governor.
When she called him she told him they met on a plane and he gave her his number. Of course these men meet so many people that they tend not to remember everyone they meet. He asked her to come over. She spent a weekend and returned with 250k and a stern warning not to return because (according to her) from the minute he saw her he knew they'd never met but didn't ask her to leave because she had come a long way.
So I believe #2. Back to the matter; are the ladies in the FCT as terrible as they make them out to be?
