I guess absence indeed makes the heart grows fonder, as the old saying goes.
Ghanaians down here are running around bankrupting themselves to hold white weddings but those out there in the white man’s land are also doing all they can to hold traditional African weddings.
The traditional wedding of a Ghanaian couple in the Netherlands is grabbing headlines.
Lloyd and Louisa Akoto Dapaah made sure their wedding ceremony in the Netherlands was a traditional one to showcase Ghanaian culture.
The couple and guests all had to be decked out in traditional Ghanaian garb.
Louisa Dapaah is the sister of Ghanaian ‘mashup queen’ Nana Fofie, who is signed to Nicki Minaj’s record label and has gone on tour with her in the past.
