There was serious drama at the Ikoyi registry yesterday, January 21, after a 32-year-old Nigerian man shouted in jubilation saying 'Help me thank God, I don marry Oyinbo!!!' after he married an older white woman.
According to the report by Chris Ayo Joseph (@officialchrisay on Instagram), the shout of the groom who already has two children and a wife in Ondo state, caused a scene at the registry. It is believed the harsh condition of things might have forced him into the act or it might just be true love. But, he couldn't hide his joy.
Read how it was reported by Chris Ayo:
"Help Me Thank God...I Don Marry Oyinbo!!!
"Ba mi dupe luwo oluwa ooo.. Mo ti fe oyinbo, jesu seun" (Help me thank God, I've married a white). Those were the words of this young man while receiving a phone call, just after tying the knot with this white woman at the Ikoyi registry earlier today.

"Apparently, I was meant to understand that such thing happens almost everyday at the registry. Young Nigerian men come in with different foreign "oldie mama youngie's", all for the paper's and the Chedda. It's more a like trend!
"Obviously, the desire to get a “by-fire-by-force green card” has really blinded a lot of Nigerian men or how else does one explain why a 32 year old man would bring home a foreign grandmother for marriage without the elderly in his family berating him.
"Honestly, I thought the Yoruba has got culture. What has happened? Because the man in question is a Yoruba man, from Ondo State precisely. ðŸ˜© As a matter of fact, i was also rightly informed that the young man is married with two kids. Guess, his wife traveled or something, but his kids were present at the court wedding. And from where I sat, I overheard the kids calling him "Daddy..Daddy", and the man replied in Yoruba disgruntledly " E ma pe mi ni daddy mo, se e ti gbo". (Don't call me daddy, hope you've heard). At that point, i knew something funny was going on."
Hmnn, nawa oh!
