In other news, the wedding photos of a beautiful man and his bride have gone viral as they appear to have had the simplest marriage ceremony with no guests sighted in the pictures.

Many wondered if Ghanaian ladies would agree to have such simple weddings, looking at how inexpensive it all looked.

The only two people who were captured in the photos apart from the bride and the groom was the officiating minister, as well as a woman who is thought to be the mother of one spouse.

Apart from the fact that the new Mr and Mrs did not entertain guests at the marriage ceremony, the two also wore simple dresses as though they were just stepping out for a random event.

Meanwhile, a Nigerian man identified as Adewale Adeniyi inspired many people on LinkedIn with his grass to grace story.

Adeniyi said he worked as a roadside mechanic for six months without being paid during his undergraduate years at the higher institution where he studied engineering.

He said bailing oneself out of the less privileged circle is by showcasing "uncommon knowledge", adding that one becomes irresistible by doing so.
