In a move that might be recorded in the Guinness World Book of Records, Sharon Oyakhilome, daughter of Pastor Chris Oyakhilome, has held two different white wedding ceremonies in one month.
This actually can be linked to the fact that the parents of the bride Chris and Anita Oyakhilome are sour divorcees.
While Pastor Chris was noticeably present at their daughter’s traditional and white wedding ceremony in Nigeria, his ex-wife, Anita, was also noticeably absent. The action sparked reactions from Nigerians and even top gospel singers like Nathaniel Bassey online.
So, to honour her mum who was reportedly banned from showing up at the Nigeria royal wedding, Sharon had a second wedding reception in the UK and this time, Pastor Oyakhilome was absent.
The young couple Sharon and Phillip Frimpong whose love story moved us to tears shared their vows in her presence and had a reception with her and her private invited guests over the weekend.
Sharon has shared photos from the recent wedding on her page while tactfully disabling the comments to avoid trolls and questions.
And what’s more amazing is the fact that the young couple has decided to make their marriage work at all cost despite the bride’s parents being divorced.
“We are going to show the world and set a standard and inspire others not by words but by action that it is possible to have a beautiful marriage and how beautiful it is to have God in a marriage.” they told Kemi Filani in an exclusive interview.
