An Akwa Ibom man married a non-Nigerian lady recently and one Facebook user was overjoyed by how simple their wedding was.
Facebook user David Akpan shared the couple's wedding photos on his page on Wednesday, July 12. He commended them for how simple their interracial wedding was and also complained about ladies these days wanting heaven and earth on their big day.
In his words: "You know say these people don marry so? The guy na Akwa Ibomite o, brother to Enobong Udoessien and the lady na oyinbo. You don see buffet, 10 tier cake, DJ, Compere, event center wey dey collect 200k to rent, wedding gown wey take 45k to rent, suit wey be bespoke, branded photos, bouncers or entourage."
"Have you seen any table with Hennessey or Remy Martin on top?. Best man sef plus bridesmaid no dey o. Make una look well. These are some of the reasons some men clock 40 and are still too scared to take the bold step!"
"Typical Uyo babe no go gree this kind o. She will probably want to give her friends a lasting memory while the guy will run into debt just to satisfy her and then they go home and starve. After all the show, everyone will retire to their homes and leave both of you alone forgetting all that happened there!!"
"God help us and flush out this demonic philosophy of unnecessary expenditure. How beautiful and glamorous a wedding is doesn't guarantee the success of the home. Guys and ladies plus parents of children beware!"
Is he saying the truth?
