App that calculates lobola launched

2015-09-17 06:00

ARE you curious to find out how much you are worth as a woman when your time comes to walk down the aisle?

Don’t stress, help is at hand - just log on to lobo la.net where, after a few clicks, you can get a quote of what your worth is. The service is free, but you will pay if you download the android­ app onto your cellphone.

Lobola is the price in many southern African cultures that the groom pays his soon to be wife’s family for her hand in marriage.

When calculating your price, lobola.net takes into consideration your height, weight and how attractive you rate yourself (ranging from “really hot” to “not at all”). According to the site, the number of partners a woman has shared the bed with contributes greatly to the final price.

A few Fever ladies checked the site out and some found they are worth less than R20 000, which is considered very low in African culture. Some discovered they were worth lots.

Most people who have tried the app think this is fun, which should not be taken seriously.

Some said: “Awesome ... I don’t know if we’re selling ourselves or we do it for tradition and celebration.

“These days things are tough.”

If a man wants to see how much his future wife will cost him or how much, as a woman, you are worth, go on to www.lob ola.net and check it out.
