The Stingy Men Association of Nigeria (SMAN), which is a new movement and trend among social media users in Nigeria, is a group of men who are stingy and not willing to spend money on any woman.
The motto of the association is ” I will see what I can do”.
Since it began to trend on social media few days ago, many Nigerian men have shown interest in the association, with many sharing their membership cards and others asking how they can become a member.
In the membership form produced, the association states that its objective is to uphold dignity by not giving money or means of financial exploitation to the opposite gender.
Popular music producer and boss of Mavin records, Don Jazzy posted a picture of his membership card with the caption “Registration complete.”
In what many believed to be a counter move, Nigerian women also launched the Stingy Women Association on social media. Although, it has not gained popularity but they already have a logo.
The Stingy Men Association trend started in Zambia, where the country’s men pledged not to spend more than five Zambian Kwacha (K5) on their girlfriends. They said rather than spend money on their girlfriend, they will invest it and earn interest.
Other associations that have been launched include Lavish Men Association; Successful Girls Association,Cheerful Givers Association of Nigeria and many more.
