The lady, identified as Amarachi, posted the list on her TikTok account (@amara_the1st), revealing the traditional requirements her father had to fulfill for the marriage.

Amarachi mentioned that her mother hails from Abia State. The bride price list, which dates back to 2001, showcases the traditional customs and expectations for marriage in that region during that period.
