A young Nigerian man has narrated how he went broke and ran into debt after throwing an extravagant wedding.
The married man, who claimed to be earning millions monthly before the wedding, said things weren’t going as smoothly in the months leading up to the wedding, and since the wedding date had been fixed, he used his business money to fund the ceremony to save face.
He said instead of paying off over N5 million he was owing some people at the time, he was bent on holding a grandiose wedding, believing that all losses would be made up after the wedding.
Sadly, things didn’t work out the way he had hoped and only became worse after the wedding. He was in debt and went broke.
Speaking in an interview with media personality, Lucky Udu, the man who stated that he eventually regretted his decision described it as the “biggest mistake of his life”.
