We’ve shared a first timer’s guide to attending a Nigerian wedding in case you’re new to the Owambe lifestyle. If on the other hand, you’re the one wedding please pray these 6 things don’t happen.
They can seriously ruin your matrimonial plans.
1. If your caterer decides to be a witch
Never underestimatetbe power of a Nigerian caterer to ruin your wedding. Never, ever.
2. If you have been deceiving people’s children
You have finished deceiving your three side lovers that they’re the absolute loves of your life. Now, you want to get married in peace? You lie!
3. If you don’t share souvenirs
Ehn? After buying Aso-ebi 25k, you will leave people empty-handed? You want to see crazy. Share something, even if it’s a roll of tissue
4. If you don’t share Jellof, small chops or Amala
Is it even an Owambe if small chops or Jellof rice isn’t on the menu? Mama Rasheeda literally skipped meals just so she can eat four plates of Amala. So come correct.
5. If you hire a mad DJ
Imagine expecting a playlist containing classic wedding bops, only for the DJ to play a recording of their last sexcapade… To the hearing of all your 500 guests. Ah.
6. If you hire an anyhow photographer
Beautiful moments at your wedding are documented so you can revisit and cherish the memories. Videos of that you-may-kiss-the-bride moment nko? Sweet. But everything can go wrong if the person you hire for the job does anyhow.
