Oh the things we do for love!
Popular Ghanaian Journalist and magazine publisher, Raymond Archer, has finally wedded his lover of two years, Nura Salifu (daughter of Salma Salifu, a well-known fashion designer).
The best part of the occasion was when the groom decided to convert from Christianity to Islam because of the marriage.
According to Starr FM online, he stated,
“I was born a Christian, baptized a Christian but all my friends are Muslims. I am making the decision and my parents and in-laws have been very supportive. My father has been very helpful and the understanding is there.”
They were joined in matrimony by 92-year-old Ghana’s National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu. The groom was given the Muslim name Abdul Aziz to mark his conversion.
The two-day affair took Accra by storm and the bride wore a total of seven outfits for the traditional engagement on the 8th of August 2015, and for the Nikkai the next day.
