Ghanaian highlife artist, Rex Omar has advised young Africans who are yet to be married not to allow themselves to be pressured over white weddings.
The veteran musician gave this advice in a Facebook post on his official Facebook handle.
In the post Rex Omar, called on all Africans to stop calling traditional marriage engagement because according to him, that is the actual laid down marriage tradition by the ancestors.
“My dear young people of AFRICA. After the two families have met and you’re done performing the traditional marriage ceremony with all the customs, please STOP calling it an engagement! That is the actual marriage according to our AFRICAN tradition laid down for us by our ANCESTORS.”, he wrote.
The former GHAMRO boss went on to advice young Africans not to put pressure on themselves to spend monies they could use to start life on white European wedding ceremony.
“Do NOT after that put pressure on yourselves waste money that could have been used to start life to go perform another white European wedding ceremony and call that the marriage. Our ANCESTORS were NOT stupid! For the lack of knowledge, my people perished.”, he added.
