Officiating Ministers Send Groomsman Away For Wearing Earrings At Wedding Ceremony—-An angry Nigerian groomsman has expressed his ordeal via social media after he was walked out of a wedding going on in a church for putting on earrings.
The Genius Media Nigeria gathered that the twitter user identified with the handle, @ChefOpeyemi, his male friend made this known saying his friend was getting married and he was one of the groomsmen at the wedding.
As the wedding was going on in an undisclosed Baptist church in Isolo, Lagos State, he was informed by the clergyman that men wearing earrings are not allowed in the church and was politely asked to take them off or leave.
He opted for the latter option, which was to leave the church and the wedding which was still ongoing.
He left the wedding, instead of taking off his ‘beloved’s earrings and he went straight to the venue of the reception to wait for the couple.
At a Baptist church in Isolo, groomsman duties and the reverend just told me I’m not allowed to wear earrings in church.
I calmly left the church, guess it’ll be the reception for me.
Shout out to Nigerian christianity, and hope they have fine dining restaurants in h£ll 💪🏿
And to the team ‘Do it for your friend’, the friend escorted me out while we laughed about it.
He snapped the pictures I posted and said ‘see you at the reception, if dem born your papa well, no spray me’.
