Singer Davido has reportedly paid Chioma bride price, see photos below.
This online platform understands that the singer has paid in full to Umunna group in Owerri, Nkworji Ezeala ofu Nkwerre Local government area in Imo State.
In photos and video posted online, Chioma’s dad could be seen performing the Umunna rites and umuada rites.
The second phase of an Igbo wedding is the Umunna rites which is a meeting between the groom’s family and the bride’s extended family.
This meeting is important because the groom’s people have to restate their interest in marrying from the bride-to-be family, in the presence of her Umunna (direct and extended family, with family elders).
Once consent has been secured, dates for the traditional wedding will be set and the bride price list will be sent out.
The groom takes a few gifts such as kola nuts, palm wine, beer, soft drinks, tobacco, snuff, and a goat which will be shared between the groom and bride’s family.
Recall that Davido had vowed to marry Chioma this year.
Since the death of their son, Davido and Chioma have withdrawn from the spotlight and have been keeping a very low profile.
Davido and Chef Chi recently resurfaced online during the swearing-in of Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke.
The couple were also spotted together at the just concluded Qatar 2022 World cup where Davido graced the stage.
Congratulations to Davido and Chef Chi.
