Several Nigerian celebrities have joined the ‘Stingy Men Association (SMA)’ since it became a sensation on social media platforms.
The movement, initiated by a section of social media users, is aimed at catching fun while also aiming a thinly-veiled dig at some ladies fond of asking men for money.
Contrary to the ‘Sweet Boys Association’ — used to describe men of amazing personality which also gained traction in 2018 — SMA argues that there’s no justification for men spending on ladies who don’t deserve their money.
The group’s motto is “Let me see what I can do” — a term suggesting that men giving money to ladies should be seen as voluntary not an obligation as believed in some quarters.
Quite a lot of Nigerian men have shown their interest in the association since it started trending, with many sharing their identity cards and others asking how they can become a member.
TheCable Lifestyle examines celebrities who have so far joined the association.
Don Jazzy, a singer and record producer, took to his Twitter page on Monday to declare himself a member of the association.
In his ID card displayed on the microblogging platform, the 38-year-old singer described himself as the Lagos branch’s “head of the union.”

Oluwatosin Ajibade, Nigerian singer better known as Mr Eazi, is another celebrity who has joined the bandwagon.
“Let me see what I can do,” he had written in a terse Twitter post accompanying his identity card as a member of the association on Monday.
The singer dubbed himself as the “brand ambassador” of the association with his branch spanning Lagos and Accra.
