Actor, Williams Uchemba has come under criticism by some traditionalists after he poured away the palm wine his wife gave him on their traditional wedding day.
Recall that the Nollywood actor traditionally wedded his wife, Brunella Oscar few days ago at her hometown in Anambra state.
And on Saturday, November 21, the lovely couple had their Church wedding in a star-studded ceremony which had dignitaries in attendance.
In attendance were; his best friend Comedian AY, Falz, Billionaire E-Money, Billionaire Obi-Cubana, Kcee, Gospel sensation – Frank Edwards, Peter Okoye, Ufuoma McDermott, Pretty Mike of Lagos among other dignitaries.
The actor has now come under heavy criticism after video clips from his traditional wedding captured moment he poured away the palm wine his wife handed over to him which according to Igbo tradition, he was meant to have drank it.
While some supported Williams’ decision by saying “days are bad” and “times are evil”, others said the actor’s refusal to drink the palm wine which traditionally was handed over to his wife by her father is a proof that Williams does not trust his in-laws enough to drink a palm wine they gave him.
Check out some of the reactions below;
Chioma Eze Akubueze commented, “It simply shows that he doesn’t trust his in laws because the person who gives you the drink will drink from it. This happens when one nurtures himself that the evil people are waiting for him in the village while in the real sense the evil people are in your office or business places,your neighborhood,your church even among your friends. That we are alive is by Gods grace not our making. Children of this new generation have turned everything upside down.”
Chivalry Loveleads wrote, “I saw that his action,he was just being careful and protecting his life but that action doesn’t portray any good about Igbo lovely culture. I thought he would have done it in a mature way that nobody would have noticed what really happened.”
Joe Black commented, “Drink what make una forget that thing abeg the gods has nothing to do with drink in a marriage. The world is so wicked now even the gods himself knows it ,his marriage is fully blessed bro”
Olwuchi Jovita wrote, “Wisdom is profitable to direct. How refusal to drink doesn’t determine how genuineness of his love to his wife or inlaws. May God bless their union.”
