How would your folks react if you wanted a small wedding of 35 guests?

Popular twitter Influencer, Eric Okafor (@Knewkeed) tweeted the news of Agbani Darego's wedding and asked people to share to their African parents. The response is hilarious as one Nigerian twitter user actually shared it to his parent. See replies after the cut.

The truth of the matter is it can be done. People keep saying it can only happen if it is done outside Nigeria. That is a big NO! I told my parents I wanted a 50 people wedding. They thought I was joking. I told my parents I wold walk out on them if I got there and found more than that number.....it ended being about 150people in attendance. I am still happily married....

In Naija where our mothers belong to different social groups??? Their guests are definitely more than that of the couple. If u say no, they resort to tears ad emotional blackmail

I had 11 people at my wedding. Took a while to convince my wife but we both agreed a wedding is not an excuse to throw a free party for people. Only immediate family members were present.

The fewer the better for me. It's not a show off day but an intimate celebration of a new phase of life. I will reserve the bigger parties for anniversaries, birthdays or just partying for fun, but I don't like the stress of big weddings and the worry over which gifts to accept and which ones to destroy or give away and the massive budget and planning and invites...no!!!! . My trad was done inside my father's living room..Only essential elders were notified. They thought they were coming for introduction but it became a double ceremony...Security and traveling a long distance was the catch phrase to dispel too much questions. In laws
were in on it...Hubby is only son so sharp sharp was the process. We finished before 3pm. Registry already done. White wedding loading and will be done on a Sunday in a new smaller parish. All well planned.
So Agbani is my type of person...

35 people ke? In order to have a low key wedding, we printed no invitation card only to discover later that their mouth is more than social media. My mum with over 100. Each of my siblings with over 20 friends. Mom being Catholic, we had St this n that society. 100 people not possible talkless of 35

Said to my Dad "All I want is a small wedding congress" and he said I have to put it in writing and properly signed with witness.
I began to think like seriously?
