I AM an African and I pride myself in being a provider and a hard worker. I was taught that a man’s worth is equivalent to how well he can provide for his loved ones. Don’t get me wrong. I still view love, compassion, honesty and integrity as part of the package yet “moola” takes precedence these days.

There is, however, this new trend among couples where money supersedes everything and where women will subject themselves to abuse and patriarchy just to be seen with a very important person (VIP) with a bottle of Moët and Chandon.

They will do anything in their power to date men who are old enough to be their uncles, fathers and even grandfathers. Dubai is the new ideal place to be seen in their Instagram pictures.

This love for the high life has opened them up to be used, abused and sold to the highest bidder. They set themselves very high standards. Some have not even done matric, yet they have seen more miles than a rented Avis car.

One wonders if this trend will go out of fashion and if they will change their approach and their life-style.

Our black sisters must start questioning the hype and start achieving success beyond Instagram social media.
