Kobby Kyei, a popular Ghanaian blogger, has shared a different perspective on how much it costs for couples to plan and execute a successful wedding.

Contrary to the popular notion that you need to have a certain amount of money or a set of properties before you get married, he says he tied the knot with very little.

He revealed this during an interview with Nana Romeo on Accra 100.5 FM’s ‘Ayekoo Ayekoo’ today, Tuesday, 30 August, 2022.

According to the 32-year-old social media influencer, when he got married he was broke.

“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.”

Kobby Kyei was quick to add, “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.
