You haven’t even lived if you haven’t attended a Yoruba Wedding.
Yoruba weddings are the absolute best! Even CNN got so curious and simply had to cover a Yoruba wedding. Nobody really knows what makes Yoruba weddings so awesome, what we do know is that they are super interesting and everyone should attend at least one in their lifetime. Here are some of the things you will find at every true Yoruba wedding. Did we mention that you’d have more fun attending a Yoruba wedding than going to any club?
1. Cute Yoruba demons men dressed in white trad.
These are usually the Groom’s friends and they are always very handsome and well put together. Be careful though, don’t fall for their charm too easily.
