During my project about the gospel church in Elephant and Castle I knew many very good Nigerian people and one of them, Emma, invited me to go to a traditional Nigerian pre-wedding ceremony last Sunday. I arrive there and the room is full of women wearing traditional colourful clothes, on the left side there was the bride’s family and many women are wearing purple clothes, which is the family colour for long time, and white clothes because of the virginity of the groom. On the right the groom’s family is very colourful. In the middle they are boxes of coke, whisk, one luggage and other goods. The groom has to pay thousands pounds to get married with his girlfriend. People celebrate with dance and music and I see many people giving 1 dollar notes to the bride and her mother. Lot of nice food for everyone. It is a good fun.
