Stop Calling Our Traditional Marriage Ceremony “Engagement” – Rex Omar



Owusu Marfo, popularly known in the showbiz industry as Rex Omar, has taken to his official social media page to advise young people in Africa, especially Ghanaians, not to bother themselves about holding a white wedding ceremony after performing the traditional marriage rites.

In a Facebook post sighted by Ameyaw Debrah Media, the ‘Abiba’ hitmaker asserted that in the African jurisdiction, the traditional ceremony is the actual marriage.

In addition to this, Rex Omar advised young people to desist from calling the traditional marriage ceremony ‘Engagement’!

‘’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” he averred.

That is the actual marriage according to our AFRICAN tradition laid down for us by our ANCESTORS,” he stated.

The veteran highlife musician opined that after going through what is generally identified in Ghanaian parlance as ‘engagement’, there is no need for the white 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” he further stated.
