It appears more Africans are ditching the conventional white wedding look for something more traditional and Conan-Moses Orseer Anyamikegh is one of them.
The Benue man left jaws hanging when he showed up for his own wedding dressed in a dashiki and a pair of blue jeans - in place of a traditional suit and tie.
Anyamikegh accessorized his look with some dark sunshades and some shambalas on his wrists. His bride, however, kept it traditional as she looked dazzling in a beautiful dress with lace cutouts and a fringed neckline.
His friend, James Ornguga, took to Facebook to celebrate the couple.
"And the first Tiv man to hold his white wedding in jeans and Fulani danchiki was my friend, Conan-Moses Orseer Anyamikegh. Thanks for degrading this idea of English suits as wedding attire. I like your style. Congratulations, Tivboy!"
