Nigerian woman in tears as oyinbo husband makes okra soup with sugar

A Nigerian woman feels sweet and sour emotions simultaneously on her birthday as her oyinbo husband surprises her with sardines on eba and okra soup made with sugar.

A thoughtful American man went above and beyond to treat his wife to local African cuisine in celebration of her birthday.

The wife who did not see the gesture coming was overjoyed to get such a heartwarming meal from her oyinbo husband.

Unfortunately, the taste did not meet the average taste of the Nigerian woman’s expectation due to sugar and excess pepper in the okra soup.

With love, she tried to eat the almost watery eba with the sugar-based okra soup but ended up almost shedding tears.

The video has since generated a wave of reactions from social media users who applauded the thoughtfulness of the husband.
