The wedding between Kennedy Osei, the first son of Osei Kwame Despite, and Tracy Ameyaw has dominated news headlines for some time now.

The buzz around the wedding which was dubbed Kency2020 followed the lavish display of wealth at the traditional and white weddings which were held on February 13 and February 15, 2020, respectively.

Following the wedding, many social media users described the wedding as the biggest and most expensive wedding in Ghana in the last decade.

But an Instagram blog, Daily Celebrities News, recently challenged the wide held assertion of Kency 2020 being the biggest wedding.

According to the blog, the biggest wedding was that of Henry and Dela Fitz and the blog has brought videos from the wedding which was dubbed Hendee19 and came off in July 2019.

One of the videos sighted by YEN.com.gh shows a dome being specially built for the wedding which was held in Akosombo.

Another video shows the inside of the dome which had been adorned with customised decor for the wedding reception.

The customised decor is said to have been done by a US-based decor expert who was flown in Ghana purposely for the wedding.

The dome and decor cost $160,000 (GHC850,000), the blog post claimed.

YEN.com.gh previously reported how the blog had indicated that among other things, the event was like a weekend getaway where guests were treated to an awesome experience.

According to the initial report, the wedding which took place at the plush Royal Senchi, saw award-winning TV star Nana Aba Anamoah and colleague Serwaa Amihere serve as emcees on the day.
