Over the weekend, President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi got hitched to his second wife at a private ceremony.
Even though the head of Ghana’s Football governing body wanted to keep the occasion under wraps, some guests who were at the wedding were quick to take some pictures and announce the union on social media.
The long-time devoted Muslim got married to Mariama Sannie, a 25-year old graduate from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.
Some excerpts of the wedding were captured on video by a Ghanaian footballer who posted it on Twitter.
There were earlier reports that the GFA president’s longtime girlfriend was 19 years old but those reports were however untrue.
Kwesi Nyantakyi who has been a Muslim since his early years saw the need to take a second wife and that was done since it is not against the precepts of Islam.
Here are more pictures of the new Mrs. Nyantakyi:
