What is Lobolo


Lobolo is a traditional African custom where a man pays a certain amount of money or property to the family of his bride-to-be as a symbol of his commitment and as a sign of respect for the woman and her family. This custom is prevalent in various African cultures and serves as a way to formalize a marriage and to establish the rights and obligations of the husband and wife. The amount of lobolo paid can vary based on various factors, such as the social standing and reputation of the groom, and the customs of the particular community involved. In some cases, the lobolo may be negotiated and paid over a period of time, and failure to fulfill the agreed-upon terms can result in a breakdown of the marriage. Despite its traditional roots, lobolo is still practiced in many African societies today.
