A newly married Ghanaian couple has gone viral on social media after images of their wedding surfaced online.
The photos and video show an aged-looking groom and his young bride at their traditional wedding which reportedly took place at Maafo-Akwaboakrom in the Western region.
From the video, one can see both the groom and bride dressed in beautiful kente. They were busy dancing to Wendy Shay’s hit song ‘Akokora Gangster’. With their hands locked together, the new couple was surrounded by a group of other people.
According to Gyan Formula, a man who is said to be the son of the groom, his father is 106 years and works as a cocoa farmer and herbalist while the bride is 35 years old; adding that the two have been together for about 12 years and have four children with the eldest being 11 years old.
Explaining why the father is marrying at this age, he revealed that the 106-year-old is worried sick of the fact that he will pass on without marrying the lady and would be asked by God for not doing the right thing as expected of him.
When asked about their relationship with their father’s wife, 41 years old Gyan mentioned that he and his other siblings are on good terms with her and have even taken her as their mother.
“Our mother passed away in 1999. Our father despite his age decided to take in a new wife. We saw that not only does he like the young lady but is also happy with her. That is why we chose to accept her as well. She is our mother now” he said.
Some social media users also share their views with regards to the photos and video of the couple that trended online.
