Ekene Umenwa, the Nigerian actor, was positively beaming with joy as she and her longtime lover, the head honcho of Firstnollytv, Alex Kleanson, joined hands in the sacred bonds of matrimony at traditional wedding.
The movie star, who recently disclosed to the public about her engagement to the filmmaker, hit us with some long motion pictures from her traditional wedding fiesta held right in her own hometown in Anambra State.
In the video she posted, Ekene and Kleanson worn their finest traditional attire at their big day, surrounded by friends and family.
She smiled as wide as the Mississippi as the couple delved into the intricacies of Igbo traditions hand in hand, hit the dance floor with guests, and swayed in harmony with their loved ones.
Captioning the clip, Ekene confirmed that her bride price was paid on April 16th, 2023, sealing their traditional matrimony. However, due to the turbulent circumstances in the East, she opted not to go the whole nine yards with the type of traditional wedding she had in mind.
“APRIL 16th 2023 my bride price was paid by my baby @kleanson and we became married traditionally but because of the insecurity in the East I decided not to do the kind of trad I like because me l am a village girl oh I love tradition too much
