A piece of advice from blogger Kobby Kyei, who uses himself as an example, was shared for young men who are thinking about getting married.
In an interview on Accra 100.5 FM’s “Ayekoo Ayekoo,” blogger Kobby Kyei described how he got married while having no money.
“I had my wedding at St. Martin De Porres – a nice one, with Abeiku Santana, president Kufuor’s son, the actor, Edward Agyekum Kufuor attending, Article One and many other musicians also. I had done the blogging for a while and had made some contacts but in my pocket, it was nil.”
“I didn’t have any money but I had gained an image and it was getting more popular,” he stressed, adding that rap star Sarkodie would have come to the wedding but he was “in the US and so he asked his management to come instead.”
“I was sleeping on the ground when I got married.”
“Some people say they want a television, a fridge, a wardrobe, an air-conditioner before they get married. When I was getting married, I was sleeping on the floor.”
He also indicated, that he housed his groomsmen in someone’s room, making it appear to people it was his.
“The money I got from the wedding ceremony is what I later used to rent my first place. It was at Bortianor,” he revealed.
