A Nigerian man identified as Maigalisa Yohanna, tied the nuptial knots with his American bride, Danielle Villasana in a tricycle a.k.a Keke Napep.
The couple who met at American University of Nigeria where Danielle teaches Photography, while Maigalisa is an IT expert, surprised their guests after storming their wedding reception on August 4, 2018, in a tricycle in Yola, Adamawa.
Maigalisa opted for groomed blue and sky-blue tops with matching trousers. Shy and introverted, he’s the proud smart boy from Northeast Nigeria who is even more pleased that his adorable wife cherishes the authenticity of his cultural roots.
Danielle’s entourage included her friends. They too were generous with lavish smiles. Their sartorial choices – boldly colorful, playful and culturally pertinent – would wow the fashion editor of their favorite magazines.
The photographer, Seun who took the photos shared how it was a lovely surprise for the American bride who had always wanted Keke Napep ride. He wrote;
I have photographed quite a number of weddings but none has been this spontaneous and engaging.
The event planner @tiana_27 walked up to me just after the joining took place and said. ‘You need to be ready for a surprise that @maigalisa (Husband) has for his Bride @davillasana’. The order of photographs followed shortly after as we needed some time for @meetbobby1 to fetch the Keke (Tricycle). He made a grand entry as the bride was swept off her feet and marveled at the surprise.
Before this time, riding in a Keke had been a wish for Danielle and Maiga granted her this wish on the day they tied the knot where it all began. – –

The wedding of this beloved couple is not merely a milestone in the lives of two beautiful young professionals. It presents a paradigm of symphonic calmness in these troubled times when there is a global backlash against persons who look different than us.
