A Nigerian man from the Igbo descent (tribe) took to Facebook to narrate his heartache as the family of his bride to be rejected him after they found out that he is an osu (outcast).
Accordng to him, the family of his fiancee had previously accepted earlier, but at the time of the traditional rights, they did further research and turned his proposal down. He was heart broken.
The Osu people from the Igbo tribe has always been treated unfairly in terms of marriage due to the disparities in the traditional belief system. No one knows for sure how the strong disapproval originated within the Igbo culture but there has been many stories trailing the such beliefs. So far, religion has not been able to help in this regard.
