Nigeria, Igbo, Marriage, Ceremony, Dowry
Traditional marriage ceremony between Constance Agboeze and Marcellus Odo. This recording shows the bride and her family accepting the groom’s offer of marriage and bride-price and welcoming the groom and his kinsmen into the venue for the marriage. Once the groom has sprayed enough money and the other requirements of the bride-price have been met, the bride adorns the groom with the jewelry and crown of a king and cuts a ribbon that indicates the families are now joined.
