By Ingram Osigwe

In far away Hanover, Maryland,United States of America, it was glamour, glitz pomp and pageantry recently as Ugochukwu Ezenna and Adaobi Nweke tied the knots traditionally, known in the Igbo culture as ngba nkwu nwayi ( wine carrying of a bride).

The array of dignitaries that graced the carnival-like traditional wedding underscored the influence of the couple’s parents in the society.

Many of the dignitaries – business associates and partners of the father of the groom flew in from Nigeria and different parts of the world, including Indonesia etc to identify with,and felicitate him as his son bid bye to bachelorhood.

While Ugochukwu, handsome and unassuming, is the son of an industrialist and captain of industry, Sir Tony Ezenna( Ijele Akokwa), Chairman, Orange Group, Adaobi, a quintessentially beautiful lady, is the daughter of another accomplished personality in the society, Chief Paul Nweke, a professional health worker in the US.

The newest couple was a delight to behold as they intertwined and dissolved into each others embrace during dancing time.

And while performing her first traditional duty as a loyal and submissive wife, Adaobi, with love and affection written all over her, dutifully handed a cup of wine to Ugo signifying confirmation of him as her choice for a spouse. The passionate kisses that followed sent the hall exploding with applause.
