Attending a Nigerian wedding is usually an interesting cultural experience. From the selection of a wedding planner to work with, the pre-wedding photos, sending out invitations, finalizing and distributing the aso-ebi and gifts, to the wedding day proper; a lot of careful planning goes into every detail. These days, the guests are also quickly introduced to the hashtag for the wedding so they can create a huge buzz on social media.
One very important part of a Nigerian wedding is the entertainment. A DJ, guest musical artiste or live band is contracted to liven up the day. Weddings are a once in a lifetime experience and the right music is needed to usher the newly-weds into blissful marital life. This is usually performed as the much-anticipated wedding dance entrance.
While some couples rehearse for this stage some just freestyle. Whichever way they choose, it’s always worth watching.
