It’s culture, it’s tradition, it’s life and style, it’s heritage – getting married; is one of the most looked forward to things in Nigeria for so many, after the rush of chasing education and acquiring all the certificates you want in this world… what’s next than for a typical average Nigerian man/woman to settle down?!
A Nigerian weekend will most definitely not be complete if there were no wedding ceremonies taking place… there just have to be one in any part of the country no matter what!!
While this is a very important part of the Nigerian culture, there’s no argument that there’s a ton of strings attached to getting married in Nigeria – what weighs this ton mostly is of course, whom you’re getting married to; which tribe, most especially speaks volume!
Getting married to some tribes in Nigeria can merely cost you a dime (no kidding), some would cost you a fortune (absolutely no kidding)!!
So be prepared FINANCIALLY when you say you want to get married to these tribes in Nigeria we are about to narrow down for you… When it comes to these tribes, people invest an awful lot in their wedding ceremonies and you should be ready to too! (If of course, you’re going to marry any of them)
