In many African homes, the female child, no matter how old she is, continues to live with her parents till she gets married. Well, this might seem odd especially in cases where the lady can afford to live on their own.
Nigerian singer and songwriter, Simi, seems curious about the topic and she has taken to Twitter to ask her fans what they think about it.
Do you think it's necessary for a woman to stay in her parent's home until she's married? Even if she can afford not to.

Not necessary. My parents are in Ondo and in here hustling. Am I suppose to stay in my father's house because of marriage so that the man will see me as responsible?

IN an African culture that's how it supposed to be done if she leaves alone the temptations of miss using her body will be high @SympLySimi

What's the necessity as long as she can cater for herself there's no need for that

It really isn’t necessary, if she wants peace and privacy staying alone before marriage isn’t a bad idea.

It depends on the child manner of living or lifestyle, let her be herself when you notice she can keep good morals
