The Bride’s parents accepted the Groom’s N24 bride price offer and the traditional engagement was sealed with a kiss.
This sums up the beautifully planned traditional engagement ceremony between Efe Ejeba and Marvis Nkpornwi held this afternoon.
The two Housemates were Voted by you the public as their favourite Bride and Groom for the #BBWedding, which was this week’s theme.
The Groom’s representatives presented the Bride’s parents, ThinTallTony and Bisola with gifts and further engaged them in the bride price talks. They offered N24 to the Bride’s family, an amount they accepted.
After the talks, the blushing Bride was ushered into the garden by her friend and wedding entertainer, Debie-Rise, where her Groom was waiting with his representatives, including his father Bally. She was asked if she recognised the Groom, who was visibly smiling from ear to ear, and she said yes. “His name is Efe and he is the love of my life,” she said.
The MC, Bassey informed the Bride that her parents had accepted the bride price, with her father adding that it was up to her to accept or decline. “The final decision is in the hands of the beautiful princess,” he said. The Bride accepted, marking this the end of the talks between the two families and the start of the celebrations.
The Housemates prepared all week for the wedding, from planning the menu to creating a script and most of them felt upbeat about their performance during their joint Diary Sessions. We can only but wait and see how Big Brother feels about their presentation at the end of the day.
