A Nigerian makeup artiste has taken to Twitter to reveal what she witnessed at her client’s wedding on Saturday, May 29.

MUA says

The lady, identified as @Queenyetty1_ on Twitter, said the bride’s family refused to commence the wedding ceremony because the groom failed to pay the full bride price.

According to her, the bride’s family had requested for N150k for their daughter’s bride price, however the groom defaulted and brought N100k instead.

She said they rejected the money and stopped the DJ from playing music.

Fortunately, the wedding eventually started around 4pm after much back and forth between both families.

The lady further alleged that the reason behind the bride’s family’s action is because the groom is a Yoruba man and they didn’t want their daughter to marry from a Yoruba family.

In her words,

“I’m sorry sha. But men wey dey marry Igbo ladies are Kings.
I give them double twale!! Them dey try!!
This wedding I’m at
Bride family no gree make the event commence because of bride price.
They asked for 150k and na 100k hubby give them. They rejected it
Na here we still dey since morning
The bride father is Igbo and mother is Yoruba, but he doesn’t want his daughter to marry Yoruba hence the reason they’re stressing the young man
Dem no even allow DJ play music
This is so embarrassing”.
