Somto Nwachukwu and his 16 year old partner is displayed above. Somto, an indigene of Anambra State, Otolo Village to be precise was reported to have considered marriage more important than schooling, hence, his dropping out of school. In the Igbo Culture, making money, addressed in their native tongue as "Ego", is sacrosanct. They barely consider marriage first, well, Somto changed the narrative by getting married early. A research revealed that Somto might be one of those whose clan tradition upholds marrying early because the Igbos had argued seriously about his marriage. It was rumored that during their traditional marriage, Somto's family promised a shop for selling things to start his family life.
