Comedian Wale Gates had a serious argument with a Northern Nigerian man on Twitter who via his tweet, implied that it is better to allow children get married early than allow them grow and start fornicating early.
@RealOilsheikh applauded the marriage between the 17 and 15 year old couple that took place in Sokoto state yesterday April 14th.
”Early marriage is better than early fornication. Support your children to get married early if you can afford. You will help their life in this world and hereafter” he wrote
Wale found the tweet offensive as he believes that children should be allowed to grow and not forced into marriage. See his response and their exchange below;
