A Nigerian woman, Mrs Deborah Olaki (also known on X as Mummy Zee), has continued to garner support from numerous users on the internet who were impressed by her exemplary conduct in her marriage.
In a life-changing tweet, Mrs. Olaki disclosed on the popular microblogging site, X, that she wakes up at 4.50am every day to cook for her husband, responding to a user who wondered why a wife would wake up very early to cook for her husband.
Tweeting via her handle, @#_Debbie_OA, she stated that she began to wake up that early when her husband told her that a female colleague in his office brought an extra spoon so that he could share in her lunch.
She tweeted, “I’ve always been too lazy to wake up and get his lunch ready. But the day he told me a colleague brought two spoons so he’ll eat with her was the day I set my alarm for 4.50am.”
The tweet generated controversy, with some criticising Olaki and calling her ‘insecure’ for feeling that waking up that early to cook for a man would keep him.
Popular United States based-Nigerian professor, Uju Anya, who seemed displeased with the lady’s comment, condemned her actions.
Anya wrote, “So, you’re saying you rise before dawn to cook for an able-bodied adult so that he doesn’t beg co-workers for food and f*ck somebody for day-old rice and chicken?”
Another user, @emelleionaire, wrote, “Just married, and someone can steal him with small okro and pounded yam? So, my sister in Christ, what is your war plan for when your beggar husband comes across stew that is sweeter than yours?”
@ruttiexx, another user, said, “The lord is your strength because I cannot.”
However, in a dramatic turn of events, some X users, mostly men, rallied around her, requesting a contribution from like minds to encourage the wife.
Olaki, who posted her account number at 1.39pm on Friday, shared that she had received over N2m from Nigerians on Saturday afternoon.
The woman, whose profile shows that she is a geoscientist, sharing a screenshot of her account balance on Saturday afternoon, wrote, “She’fe pami ni? (Do you want to kill me?).
“I’ve never seen this amount before. I’ve been busy at the hospital and turned off DND to see this, ahhh Jesus. Thank you all so much.
“Oh, I forgot to mention that an Angel recommended me for a remote Virtual Assistant role for 50k monthly. What else do I want? Amazing Mercy!
“Where’s the tweet with my account number again gan sef? Please, it’s okay. I’m scared.”
The lady, trending number 1 on X as Mummy Zee and number 3 as Debbie, disclosed on Saturday night that she had got over N5m in her own account, adding that her husband, whose Opay account number she also posted, had also got some cash donations from Nigerians.
