The second phase which Davido has to perform before the traditional wedding involves a meeting between the groom’s and the bride’s family.

This meeting is important because the groom’s family has to restate their interest in marrying from the bride-to-be’s family in the presence of her Umunna.

Once consent has been secured, dates for the traditional wedding will be set and the bride price list will be sent out.

The groom then takes a few gifts such as kola nuts, palm wine, beer, soft drinks, tobacco, snuff and a goat which will be shared between the groom and bride’s family.
