Flashback video of Yoruba wedding held in London in 1954

Just a few years before Nigeria got her independence, a Nigerian couple were captured in London having a grand wedding and proudly displaying their culture.

In a viral video clip, which has been said to be the wedding of Christie Bola and Matthew Daniel, the couple can be seen dancing and merrying with many Nigerians present as they tied the knot traditionally in London.

The clip was shared by Whatsupibadan on Instagram and it shows the glorious moment two lovers united in the presence of family and friends to become one.

What is most interesting is how the couple and their guests displayed the beauty of the Yoruba culture, ignoring their location. Even as they celebrated their love in London, their hearts were plugged into their culture which was richly displayed.

If there were a vote for best throwback moment, this video clip would make an excellent choice as it shows how love, culture and celebration is ingrained in the DNA of Nigerians, even as far back as 1954.

Below is the clip:

Meanwhile, in what appears to be beautifully twisted fate, Annet Nakabonye, a 28-year-old Ugandan lady was all smiles during her introduction ceremony as she recalled how she met her man by chance.

According to Mywedding, the business lady first laid her eyes on her man in a taxi. By a stroke of fate, her man Jacob Luwo who was still a stranger in 2012 did not carry his wallet.

The two had boarded the same vehicle and Annet chose to do the noblest thing - pay the stranger’s fare. Little did she know the clock had already started ticking in anticipation of her happily ever after.
