A man in Nairobi has married himself in an extravagant and unique ceremony after his fiancée broke up with him. Johnson Mathews and his fiancée, Nelly Burare got engaged in November last year and they were scheduled to get married this month.
However, Nelly decided to call off the relationship after a series of arguments over unverified cheating allegations.
While such a situation would typically mean the cancellation of the planned wedding party, Johnson decided he would go ahead with the wedding as planned.
The 33-year-old decided to marry himself instead. He hosted a fancy wedding party on November, 17 at a luxury resort in the outskirts of Nairobi.
Only 50, people attended the unusual ceremony but Johnson described it as one of the happiest days of his life.
“Today is one of the happiest days of my life since I am with the people I love the most in this life, celebrating what could have been a tragedy, but I turned it into some sort of comedy comedy,” he said. He thanked all the people whose support helped him overcome a low phase of his life.
