4 Naija Women Tell Us Why They Cut Ties With Their Close Friends


Every woman has at least one friend that she considers a best friend.  However, despite secrets shared and memories created, sometimes, situations make these best friends go their separate ways.

So, we asked some naija women if they have had any reasons to cut ties with a close friend and they shared their experience below.


Yes, so many bad female vibes! But the last straw was when she missed my wedding for no concrete reason! She was my best friend and was supposed to be my chief bridesmaid. So much for 15 years of friendship.


I had this friend back in Uni. we met through another friend. She just broke up with her boyfriend then, so she was lonely. During her relationship, the guy didn’t allow her to have friends, so it was worse when they broke up.

Knowing the situation she was in, I showed her complete love, introduced her to all my friends, as time went on she would pass the night at my house and I will also do the same at hers. We got so close that I even neglected my roommate. We even looked alike so people called us twins.

Unknown to me, she was jealous of me because I had so much friends, so, she started cooking up stories to my friends, and she lies about me to them. She even got very close to my roommate and started feeding her lies about things I didn’t even say or do. My friends got disappointed in me and thought I was a bad person.

Things really got worse then and it was not easy to convince them I was innocent of what I was accused of. The friends that trusted me, approached me, but those that didn’t trust me didn’t bother to ask about it. When she found out that I knew the damage she has caused, she started avoiding me. I broke all ties with her. A year later, nemesis caught up with her, she came back to apologize, but I didn’t accept the friendship back.


She actually had her ways of spreading lies about one person to the others in the clique and this she did for the other 3 of us. I called her out on Facebook to know her offence and how bad she is and distanced myself from her


Well, you can’t stay in a friendship that threatens your peace of mind. A friendship that threatens a sincere and genuine relationship should be cut off. You can’t tell where a good relationship leads you to. This is in the sense of disloyalty, vilification, and backstabbing.
