There has been a sudden flooding of Kayan Mata vendors and alternately, the use of the products in our society today. Women now come online boldly to advertise this open secret that never used to make it to daylight in the olden days.
Kayan Mata which literally means “women’s things or a woman’s property” originated from the Northern tribes of Nigeria.
It is used to refer to herbs or potions that act as ‘sex or love enhancers’ and ‘aphrodisiacs’.
For centuries, their recipes — generally combinations of herbs, fruits and spices have been used to heighten and stimulate the sexual feelings of one’s partner.
They were originally used by married women to spice up sexual relations with their husbands but recently, the products have been peddled on the Internet as voodoo-like herbs for young ladies to attract attention from rich men.
They come in different forms ranging from honey to perfumes, powder, do-as-I-say padlock, Goodluck oil, etc.
The Blue eye bead is also another popular bracelet believed to attract favour to the owner after being fortified with powers.
According to the adverts carried out on social media platforms,rich married men are the major targets. Whilst their wives are trying to keep their homes by all means possible, some desperate young ladies dating these married men otherwise known as ‘sidechicks’ are also going the extra mile to squeeze out a fortune from the men and possibly get them into marriage.
