Published

on

2021 was a year of extravagant weddings that had the whole nation and even Africa talking. From Kumasi’s Royal Wedding to Sika Osei’s Ghana-Naija wedding, here are all the top weddings that happened in Ghana.

The year 2021 has been a very eventful one for some of our celebrities who got married to their heartthrobs.

All the pomp and pageantry that trail celebrity weddings kept us hooked on some of them as we faithfully kept watch for the latest photos from their nuptials while others kept things low-key and private. Others tried to hide it from the public until the last minute— but became much bigger and most talked about as expected.

Though, one thing all these weddings had in common was the abundant show of love between the brides and their grooms. We couldn’t help but be glad that these celebrities have found and settled with their better halves.

Here are the top Ghanaian celebrity weddings in 2021 we won’t forget.

 

1. The Kumasi Royal Wedding

The marriage ceremony between Barima Osei Mensah and Anita Sefa Boakye which lasted for four days in Kumasi was undoubted “the wedding of 2021”.

The fun song beat the odds and for the first time since its release ranked at #1 on the city’s Top 25 chart list for the day and iTunes. Also earning a spot on one of the streaming platform’s big listings for the region, Top Albums, was the artist’s “New Era” EP which stood at #8 to score Gambo yet another exciting feat.

Gambo outdid the competition and had listeners converging on his song by the bucketload. In regards to his big win today, the ‘Boys Aye Wild’ hitmaker shared: ‘’It was a great feeling to see my song sitting at #1. Seriously. Big ups to Accra for making my day and showing my song that much love. I’m at peace now knowing my brothers are taking the right steps to treat their women right. Ha-ha. Keep the plays coming though and don’t stop’’.
