Barren women and male soldiers are the most eligible marriage partners in Kano state according to matchmakers.

Kano Focus reports that women who own houses and rich businessmen are the next most eligible category.

A matchmaker, Amina Ahmad of Sani Mainagge Kano city said barren women are most eligible because men fear the burden of catering for children.

Ms Ahmad who has been a matchmaker for 43 years said her female clients prefer soldiers and other paramilitary personnel.

“Most men now demand for barren women to marry.

“Apart from barren women, the male clients also look for women who own houses.

“The female clients look for men in uniform such as customs and immigration officers but they prefer soldiers.” Ms Ahmad said

The matchmaker said due to so much demand, she had to invite soldiers from Bukavu Barracks, Kano.

“They were very excited and came to my house to meet the women.

“However most of them were old and my clients prefer young soldiers.” She said.

Another matchmaker, Shu’aibu Rabi’u confirms to Kano Focus that male suitors prefer barren women.

Mr Rabiu, who is the chairman Kano state association of matchmakers, said barren women are most eligible for two reasons.

“Some men have a strong libido but the fear of conception prevents them from frequent intercourse.

“And some don’t want to have children because they already have enough from other women.” Mr Rabiu said.

He said matchmakers determine a barren woman based on her marital history.

“A divorced woman whose former co-wives had children with her ex-husband is deemed to be barren.” Mr Rabiu said.

How the process works

Some matchmakers collect a fixed amount from their clients while others vary the price.

Ms Ahmad says she charges both male and female clients N1,000 only.

“And if they get married I also collect anything the couple gives me as a gift.” Ms Ahmad said.

However Mr Rabiu charges male clients N2,000 while female clients pay N3,000 only.

“But those men seeking women that own houses pay N5,000 fees.” He said.

Mr Rabiu adds that after the marriage he collects one piece of African Print, soap, cream, and a percentage of the bridal price.

He however said there are matchmakers that collect up to N50,000 from clients before they connect them with their desired spouse.

We are not pimps

Mr Rabiu said the major challenge of the matchmaking business is insincere suitors.

“Sometimes we get clients who want to use us as pimps.

“When we connect them with marriage partners they end up propositioning them.

“So I always advise my female clients to report such men to me.

“I have a way of dealing with them.” Mr Rabiu said.
