"One guy came online to tell us how he couldn’t remove earrings for his friend. When people love and care for you. They will go extra miles to make you happy. Weldone my ladies."
"Religion and tribe doesn’t get in the way if someone truly cares about you."
"Give To Caesar what belongs to Caesar. As a Christian, I’m ready to dress and act like a Muslim just to honor my friend’s day."
"That's what friends are for ...not that one that could not remove his cheap ear rings in a church."
"Yet one unku couldn't honour someone he calls his friend for just two hours, by pulling off his earring when the church hosting the friend's wedding asked him to do so. Different strokes...!!!"
I walked out of the church
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a man hit social media after he was mandated to adhere to the dress code in a church.
Narrating the encounter, he said that he was at a Baptist church in Lagos as one of the groomsmen for his friend's wedding when he was asked to pull off his earrings.
Opeyemi said he left the service immediately for the reception as he would never follow such dogma.
