I came across a video of a newly wed couple at a wedding ceremony ‘begging’ for money to pay for the reception venue from invited guests who were seated and were ‘jollificating’.
According to the person who posted the video, he was in shock when something he had never seen before happened.
When the wedding ceremony was going on, the Master of Ceremony (MC), brought the couple out and stood them apart and he said “this wedding ceremony’s venue was rented on credit, they need money to pay up. If you know you love this couple come and drop a thousand Naira to bail them out”
While I have never come across such, I know someone who witnessed something similar. She said she was seated when the ushers began passing bags around for people to put a minimum of N500 to “help the new couple recover the expenses”. – See more at: http://www.lailasblog.com/2015/10/newly-weds-begging-for-money-at-wedding.html#sthash.Vi56Uy1x.dpuf
