People from all over the world have taken to social media to express their love for African weddings following a viral video from last weekend’s wedding of Idris Elba showing the performance of African Afro-pop sensation, Davido, and French fashion designer, Christian Louboutin dancing to his songs.
Elba, an English actor and producer, tied the knot with Sabrina Dhowre in a private ceremony held on Friday, April 26 at the Ksar Char Bagh hotel in Marrakesh, Morocco.
The couple met Canada where Elba was filming The Mountain Between Us in 2017.
The wedding celebrations were planned out for three days, with a white-themed festival-style party on Saturday for their family and friends at the Mandarin Oriental hotel.
Davido was the performing artiste at one of the parties, and his performance got everyone dancing, including the couple and Louboutin.
Commenting on the video of Davido’s performance shared by The Shade Room on Instagram, the readers, who were apparently excited about the turn-out and sensational music, expressed their thirst for an African wedding.
