Though critics have described the wedding as risky, others are saying that three weeks is too short to get to know someone you plan to spend the rest of your life with. However the Nigerian man is still holding on to his marriage plan, scheduled to hold on May 18th.
Penning down a post in response to his critics claims, he wrote;
“There is no one who does not like soup with fish in it. #letdemsay BUT #obichereme #obicherem is the colour of “TRUE LOVE” #Godgiving #Godgift we don’t need years to know what God gives. Only the wise can know the sign from a far. God is Love, Love is God.
Now tell me what else is Love? I repeat Relationship is not Love. Call me anywhere I will explain and you will understand. God bless you’ll.”

In January 2018, a Nigerian man identified as Chidimma Amedu, was in the news for reportedly marrying a lady 6 days after a Facebook advert.
Chidimma Amedu took his Facebook post to a whole new level, when he posted an unusual advert on 30 December 2017 asking any woman interested in being his wife to reply. He also said he was ready to tie the nuptials knots on 6 January, 2018.
“Am of age and I am ready to say I do and am wasting no time.
“Send in your applications – the most qualified will be married on January 6, 2018. Application closes 12 midnight, 31/12/2017,” Amedu posted.
He then followed up with subsequent posts.
“Am serious about this oh and don’t say you did not see it on time. Good luck.”
He received a couple of responses, but one from a certain Sophy Ijeoma was the one which caught his attention.
“Am interested, just DM me…lols,” her post read.
At first, she thought it was a joke and she simply replied to keep the thread flowing. A direct message from him to her inbox, followed by a Facebook call, would change her life’s trajectory.
Chidimma placed the advert initially as a joke but became optimistic, when Sophy said she was interested. Two days after their first conversation, he travelled some 500km (300 miles) from his home in the Nigerian capital of Abuja, to Enugu in the east where she lived.
They got married on 6 January in a traditional Igbo ceremony, and posted photos of their wedding day on Facebook of course – to the amusement of the social media community.
