A Nigerian couple has shocked guests at their wedding after rocking an unusual
A move by a bride and groom at a Nigerian traditional wedding has raised lots of eyebrows due to the choice of jewelry the couple chose to rock to their party. The couple chose to use money as an accessory. In a photo shared on social media, the bride and groom were spotted rocking rolls of cash in naira and dollars on their necks like chains.
Though this may seem weird or wasteful, it could have been an idea of fun among friends of the couple to wear it on them at the venue, it could also be a tradition or even something couple decided to do on their own, there are so many possible things that could have led to the cash chain.
However, the photo caught the attention of a Nigerian who expressed displeasure by their display of wealth. The Nigerian man Seyi Asolo, who is a music minister, had shared the photo on his Instagram page with a long note expressing his opinion. Asolo noted that it is a shame to witness what the couple did with the money.

WHAT A SHAME What a shame and madness This can only happen in a shit hole. It has been ON and ON without caution We have lost it all No identity as a nation No integrity as a people No respect for Constitution In a nation where many go to sleep without food. Where millions couldn't afford a day three square meals. You engaged in a show of wealth Using our currency, our symbol as a neck lace. Splashes and matching on money at parties. The rich are only calling for revolution The poor will make your life miserable with violence They are desperate because they have been frustrated By your lifestyle which has shown clearly the dispaity between you and them. The time of revolution is near. The spate of insecurity is a sign Your actions speak faster and louder for it Seyi Asolo #SYOU🎙️ #IRELOJASI✔️
