Ghanaian Rapper Okyeame Kwame has adviced would be couples to desist from investing in extravagant weddings since it has no value and effect on the longevity of the marriage.
In his view, the quality of marriage
‘’is not in the ceremony but in the long term relationship’’.
He made this revelation in an interview with Fiifi Pratt on Highlife Paradise on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm.
He encouraged people preparing for marriage to discuss the need to organize a simple ceremony instead of wasting so much money on extravagant ceremonies.
He was reacting to a report, which suggested he spent an amount of GHc300 on his marriage.
He reiterated the point he spent only GHc300 on his marriage some 10 years ago.
’’Why should couples go in for a loan and invest in their marriage then struggle to repay the loan. Before I married my wife, we discussed about this and agreed we were not going to spend so much money on our marriage. I am appealing to young people not waste money on marriage ceremonies.
Okyeame and his wife Anica have been married for 10 years straight and are blessed with two children .
