Our Perfect Wedding is one of Mzansi Magic's most popular reality shows and South Africans are simply addicted. Fans of the show tune in for every episode to see what unexpected crazy thing might happen. This time, it was the bride asking an uncle to lie about lobola being paid.
Sunday night's episode of OPW had viewers shocked for two reasons: 1. The couple knew each other for only 8 months - not long enough according Mzansi. 2. The groom hadn't paid lobola by the time the wedding was underway.
James and Cecilia Nwose got married after knowing each other for less than a year. James, a Nigerian businessman, asked Cecilia on a date after meeting her in church. She figured this could be her happy ending - he is her third husband after all.
Lobola negotiations almost put an end to the wedding when it got complicated just a day before the wedding. However, it soon got sorted. Or so everyone thought.
Then that shocking moment happened - Cecilia asked her uncle to lie and say that lobola had been paid in full, which it wasn't. Only half of the lobola was paid.
South Africans took to social media to express their shock. Here are our favourite reactions:
