COMPILATION OF CRAZY AFRICAN WEDDING PICTURES!

Crazy African Weddings

A Ghanaian woman once married her dog. You might not know this but here are the top crazy African weddings from gay marriages to polygamous weddings.

In our side of the world, virtues are everything and woe unto you who tried to even remotely alter the way things are done and accepted in society. Marriage being one of the most respected institutions in Africa has thus been seen as almost unchangeable. But these “crazy” weddings are gearing up to reshape how we understand the marriage ceremony in  Africa as a whole

How about a Manchester United jersey for Wedding Suit?Location: – Kenya

See, I love the “Red Devils”. It’s in my blood, needless to add we are currently experiencing some issues on the field (I’m looking at you Louis Van Gaal), but this Kenyan man decided to have a Man United themed wedding, with everything from their clothes to the wedding cake featuring “Red Devils” branding.

This is very ridiculous because even the players in this team have never had weddings themed “Manchester United.” The couple’s wedding cake was also United-themed consisting of red icing with huge ads for car sponsor Chevrolet. Moreover, their honeymoon car was covered in a United flag.

Polygamy Right in The Church – Zaire

Christianity as many people know it permits a man to marry only one wife, the strict doctrine of monogamy is preached among all Christians, but this isn’t the case with a Zairean church where a pastor boldly weds a man and three ladies in church at the same time. The crazy aspect is that he blessed the marriage the Christian way, quoting from the Holy Bible.one-man-three-wivesA 9-year-old school boy has tied the knot with his 62-year-old bride who has already had five children in Ximhungwe, Mpumalanga, South Africa, to the amazement of all. Last year the boy, from nearby Tshwane, tied the knot with bride Helen after claiming he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed. Shockingly his family took the message from the heavens seriously and hurriedly forked out ₵2,882.20 ( ₵2,882.20 ( £500) [GBP]) for the bride and a further ₵5,764.40 ( ₵5,764.40 ( £1,000)) for the big day. But little Sanele – the youngest of five children – wouldn’t rest until the couple followed through with South African traditions insisting they have the second ceremony to make their marriage official. This second marriage ceremony was this time held at the home of the bride in Ximhungwe in Mpumalanga, South Africa, in front of around 100 guests.

9 year-old boy Marries 62 Year-Old Woman – S/A

A 9-year-old school boy has tied the knot with his 62-year-old bride who has already had five children in Ximhungwe, Mpumalanga, South Africa, to the amazement of all. Last year the boy, from nearby Tshwane, tied the knot with bride Helen after claiming he had been told by his dead ancestors to wed. Shockingly his family took the message from the heavens seriously and hurriedly forked out ₵2,882.20 ( £500 [GBP]) for the bride and a further ₵5,764.40 ( £1,000) for the big day. But little Sanele – the youngest of five children – wouldn’t rest until the couple followed through with South African traditions insisting they have the second ceremony to make their marriage official. This second marriage ceremony was this time held at the home of the bride in Ximhungwe in Mpumalanga, South Africa, in front of around 100 guests.

However, the two will not live together and Sanele said he still plans to marry a woman his own age when he is older. The bride, who expressed her happiness that the boy picked her, told the newsmen that the boy will continue to live a normal life, as other boys of his age, and will later get married to a younger bride, within his age limits. Helen added that they were both just fulfilling family traditions. Helen’s husband of 30 years, Alfred Shabangu, 66, (right) and their five children, aged between 38 and 28, all attended the ceremony.

Woman Marries Her Dog – Ghana

A Ghanaian woman has married her dog because it has qualities she had seen only in her late father. Emily Mabou, 29, of Aburi, married the 18-month-old dog in a ceremony attended by a traditional priest and local, curious villagers, reports the Daily Dose. Her younger brother David Mabou said her family boycotted the wedding which they felt was “a stupid step to combat her loneliness”. But Ms Mabou said:

For so long, I’ve been praying for a life partner who will have all the qualities of my dad. My dad was kind, faithful, and loyal to my mum, and he never let her down. “I’ve been in relationships with so many men…, and they are all the same… skirt-chasers and cheaters. My dog is kind, and loyal to me and he treats me with so much respect.”

In the ceremony, the priest warned villagers not to mock the wedding, but to “rejoice with her as she has found happiness at last”.
