A traditional marriage rite between two Igbo families has stirred reactions following a ‘special’ pass given to the groom.
In a video making the rounds on social media, the groom was given permission to choose any of his bride’s friends.
The ladies who were elegantly dressed strutted in front of him so that he can have a good view and possibly change his mind about who he wants to marry.
It was all done for fun purposes and the man remained resolute in his decision to marry the love of his life.
The young suitor eventually pointed to his wife-to-be and said that she is the one he chooses to be with. The elders asked him repeatedly if he is sure and he answered in the affirmative.

Similarly, a young Nigerian couple who met through Instablog9ja’s page two years ago, recently tied the knot.
The woman known as Omozele on Instagram shared the beautiful love story of how met nd fell in love after a debate online.
According to the young lady, she dropped a comment which he did not agree with, so an argument ensued.
He then took the argument to her page by sending her a DM, but she did not respond until two weeks later.
Fast-forward to 2022, and they are husband and wife. She said that she remembers everything about that day in vivid details.
