A ‘daring’ groom and his bride arrived at their wedding reception in a tricycle which is known in Nigeria as Keke Napep, the photos of which have attracted so much attention online.
The leader of the Enugu State Legislative Assembly and a young leader for the Ohaneze Ndi Igbo Enugu State Chapter, a man by the name of Odo Nnamdi Emmanuel, posted pictures of the rare spectacle online.
It was discovered that the couple married on December 29, 2023. Photos show the happy couple riding a Keke Napep while being followed by other tricycles that were all decked out in flowers and other decorations.
Sharing the photos he wrote:
“My love, my life. Today I wedded my love in grand style. Like I said, the most important part of today’s event was the church service. We received the priestly blessing of Fr.Emeka Asogwa, Fr. Isaiah Okoro, Fr. Onoyima, Fr. Kenechukwu Charles and several others. We were inbued with the heavenly blessings to make this marriage work.
“Thereafter, we started catching cruise. We had lots of fun from the church. Riding in our Keke to the reception venue we created lots of scene for people to watch, they just couldn’t believe that the Leader of the council couldn’t afford a Lamborghini and was riding in a Keke truck.
“Today was fun, I pray our marriage will continue to be fun and lovely as we have dedicated it to God. I guess the headline from tomorrow will be Legislative Leader wed’s his love in grand style as he rides on a Keke. Life na cruise abeg. Many thanks to all my guys who came in large numbers from all over the state. My appreciation list will be too long but make we leave am for another day.”
