When it comes to wedding gifts, it appears there is no limit to how weird things can get due to the anonymity created by a gift wrap.
Twitter user, @baddestchef, took to social media to express dismay after her sister was gifted a cutlass on her wedding day.
The chef expressed her confusion as she shared a photo of the tool wrapped in a deep pink gift sheet looking rather conspicuous.
"Why would someone give my sister a wrapped cutlass as a wedding gift?"

The post which made it to Instagram had several people sharing their thoughts about the nature of the wedding gift.
While some found it oddly amusing and made jokes about her using it as a chef, there were some who expressed that it signified something dangerous.
Read some comments below:
"That’s not a gift it’s called AROKO in Yoruba .. they should be careful."
Explaining further, no_creative_username_found wrote:
"Aroko is a Social Symbol of Communication Among Yoruba Natives, mainly before the coming of western culture. The cutlass might symbolise war as it’s synonymous with Ogun, who is god of war and cutlass is one of his military weapons."

"Maybe during new year, she posted about how she want to cut off fake friends and people. So the person bought her cutlass. And for when she finds side chic inside her husband bedroom. Na to keep am by the door."
"That’s not normal please pray on it and send it away Such an evil world "

In other wedding news, the video of a white man in popular Nigerian attire called agbada has generated massive reactions online.
As the man danced to a Yoruba song, other white men, possibly his friends and family, jumped behind as they tried hard to follow the rhythm of the drum.
It should, however, be noted that at the time of writing this report, Legit.ng cannot independently verify where the event took place.
The setting of the clip suggests that it is either an introduction between two families or a traditional wedding taking place.
