Ijaw Bride Who Was Frowning At Her Wedding Says It’s Tradition by Priscy01(f): 1:15pm On Jan 31, 2018
Yesterday, there were reports about a visibly “unhappy” bride who wasn’t smiling on the day of her traditional wedding.

The bride identified as Duchess Alexis, has reacted to the reports , and said whatever went down at her wedding is simply tradition.

She noted that in her tradition, which is “Ijaw”, the bride is meant to “Frown” after been ushered in by her friends and sisters, and then the groom and his friends/family are expected to spray her until she laughs.

Here’s what she wrote;
“Please if you don’t know people’s culture and tradition, then you should ask questions. I’m the bride in question, in the Ijaw tradition a girl is expected to frown after been ushered in by her friends & sisters, then the groom and his friends/family are expected to spray her until she laughs. Please and please once again ask questions before you post.”

Hahahaha the woman is really orientational i love this tradition.. I remember when they did one in my village in bayelsa... The man was spraying the money while the woman was busy crying up to 30mins.. It shows that the marriage shouldnt base on money instead mutual love and understanding.

But from the pics even after much spraying, you still de frown sister!

Two things could have happened, either she no like the groom (May be she was forced into the wedding) or she de fear the man's John Thomas.
