A young Nigerian couple has caused massive reactions online as they stepped out in matching joggers and sneakers on their traditional wedding. A video making the rounds showed the man and his lover on their Igbo wedding called Igba Nkwu.
Although it is not confirmed if the couple are Igbos, the bride was seen looking for her husband in the wedding arena. She had a cup of palm wine in her hand, as is the custom during Igbo traditional weddings.
She searched around until she located her husband and handed him the cup of palm wine. The man gulped it and then reached for his bag and removed some Naira notes, which he put in the cup as a gift for the bride.
They stood up, went into the arena together, and stood before the elders. Apart from their unusual dress sense, everything seen in the video was done in line with Igba Nkwu.
