Days after a viral video of a woman bulging into a church in an effort to disrupt an ongoing wedding ceremony, the man at the centre of the drama has spoken for the first time.
The man, who chose to remain anonymous, acknowledged he had been previously married to his estranged wife before things went south for both of them.
Speaking to Zambia's ZNBC, he said his wife became cold towards him after he lost his job leaving him with no option other than befriending the woman he was going to marry.
"Yes, there is a life we shared with my ex but things did not work out in the process when I lost my job. She showed me colours that I never thought she would," he said.
"In the process, I started working with the one I wedded. I am a businessman and we are working together and I distributed the shares equally between my ex and new wife," he added.
According to the businessman, he will be appearing in court to declare the woman is no longer part of his life and that he is no longer interested in sharing a life with her.
The man, who now claims the viral video caused him emotional stress, said he had informed his former wife that he was going to marry another woman and that she should accept it.
"Before we went to the wedding, I told her please I am marrying this woman and I know it is not easy but she did not understand. I know she was hurt even I was hurt," he said.
"My entire life I have lived a decent life. Those people who know me from business circles and family, I am just a good person who you will find smiling and doing good things," he added.
He said he had decided to spend the rest of his life with the bride in the picture and urged his former wife to accept and moved on.
According to him, despite the drama and chaos caused by his former wife, the new couple processed to a kitchen party
"But we did not know we still surrounded by enemies. the photos were still taken and shared on social media," he said.
He further clarified that the names shared on various social media platforms were not his.
