“The old man is dead. He died 23 years ago, curiously he died on my wedding day, in Los Zongos the wedding begins on Thursday ”.
He explained that in the Zongos, the future bride is isolated on Thursdays so that the required rituals begin the wedding ceremony that culminates on a Sunday with pomp and pageantry.
“My first wife had gone to isolate on Thursday, Friday we woke up and the old man was not feeling well and it is as if we had to go back to the hospital. We were there around 8:30 pm, they came back, the old man was gone. He couldn’t believe it, ”he revealed.
According to him, the Imam insisted that both ceremonies should be performed at the same time, since one could not cancel the other, which implied that he was supposed to perform the burial of her father and marry at the same time.
“Neither can cancel the other. Interestingly, he brought something that I keep telling my constituents, all the plans, the planned parties and all of those things had to be canceled. Trust me, it became the foundation of our business, ”he narrated.
