Driving on Lekki’s Admiralty Road in the morning on a weekday can be an interesting anthropological study on the social evolution of the Nigerian woman.
Men in expensive cars no longer chauffeur women, the women drive them. Imo see levels!! If we can use the cars they drive as a barometer for climbing up the social ladder, we might deduce that they are almost there.
There are as many women in expensive American or German-made cars as there are men today. These women are mostly young, in their late 30s or early 40s. For some reason, they are always in a foul mood. It could be the traffic, or that mindless Uber driver.
For men, a good car can cater for up to 80 per cent of his inadequacies. Men who drive big cars are known to be irresistible to women from all classes. Socially, the car a man drives determine the class of women he attracts.
There are women who can never go out with a poor man who drives a simple Toyota. Essentially, you are what you car drive. That is why Nissan and Kia are the most ridiculed cars in Nigeria.

Personally, I love a good decent big car, which Naija babe hates a ‘Range? Away from that, we are so violent in our judgment on cars even when we don’t drive, much less own one. The tables have turned on guys, and women are increasingly driving the best cars in town. In the past, the assumption was that women never owned such cars.
The argument is often that a generous sugar daddy or the real dad bought them. Lately, this might not be the case. Women are now in a position to afford the most sought after cars in Nigeria. Strangely, most men develop cold feet when it comes to women with big cars. A car is a statement of wealth by inference. When a man sees a woman in an expensive car, it means he has no leverage over her and must use his wits.
When a man has a good car, good job, and is sufficiently rich, he can afford to have an IQ of a stupid rat, be humourless and still attract the best and the most beautiful woman in town. But a woman in a big car connotes wealth, fierce independence and a big ego. Now men hate it when they have to deal with another ego bigger than theirs.
And that is what men see in a woman comfy behind her Range, Mercedes or BMW. It takes a man with a big car, or extreme wealth to put up with a woman who drives an Tesla or Audi. If a woman drives a better car than what you drive, you feel threatened and challenged.
It has happened to my older brother and one of my best friends. The first time, a woman three years younger than him showed up with a Mercedes for a date. She had not prepped him for that. He arrived on foot. They had pizza, she paid the bill and dumped him 72 hours later.
A friend went for a rendezvous with his new catch. An Uber dropped him at a Chineses restaurant in Victoria Island. She arrived in a Lexus Jeep. Long story short, my guy shit his pants and ran away without looking back.

Trust me, there’s nothing so emasculating to a man than when a woman has a better car. It is the ego. All young, normal men who drive ordinary or don’t drive at all will be nervous around a woman in a big car. I know there are spoilt brats like Kiddwaya, but most Nigerian men steer clear of women with big cars.
This is 2021 and though it is good that Nigerian men have started realising that girls aren’t no longer smiling about making money, we need them to stop shitting their pants but to have some balls and ask rich ladies out. After all nobody came to this world carrying Ghana must go full of dollars.
