It was celebration galore as Eleme star musician and Nollywood movie producer and actor, Father Mbasca Chindo, walked the aisle with his beautiful bride, Mary Aken as they were joined together in Holy Matrimony at the Assemblies of God, Church, Ogale I in Eleme Local Government Area of Rivers State.
The marriage ceremony which was well attended by family, friends and well-wishers of the couple also attracted members of the Nollywood, comedians, and members of the Performing Musicians of Nigeria, PMAN, and popular Eleme gospel singers, pastors of Assemblies of Church amongst others.
In a sermon, Senior Pastor of Assemblies of God Church I, Ogale, Rev. Loveday Osarondor who spoke on the topic: “Making a happy home and a successful marriage”, read from Genesis 2:24-25 saying for a marriage to be successful, a couple must ensure they know each other and endeavour to meet each other’s needs.
He stressed that the home cannot be happy and successful if the couple ignore what is expected of them to do in their marriage, adding that the needs of every couple are not the same and as such, it is the duty of each couple to ensure they know and meet their needs, even as he outlined duties of men and women in order to achieve a successful marriage.
Rev. Osarondor further stated that, for a marriage to be successful the husband must demonstrate affection for his wife. He said God decided to bring a woman to a man for affection to take place, stressing that there should be conversation between the couple as it is the bedrock of every marriage.
He urged the couple to be honest and open to each other, even as he said it is the duty of the husband to be financially supportive in the family. He said the wife should on her part ensure she fulfills her sexual obligation and satisfies the urge of her husband whenever the need arises. He advised the wife to cultivate the good habit and be attractive to entice her husband who is the man in the house.
At the reception ceremony, chairman of the occasion, the Executive Officer of RuzzelBix Entertainment, Mr. Ruzzel Ngofa in his address, thanked all who attended to grace the occasion. He described Father Mbasca as a man of humility and good attitude. According to him, the name Father Mbasca came to limelight as a result of his fatherly disposition to so many, adding that those he mentored “are all here today to grace his marriage”.
He however advised others to borrow a leave from Father Mbasca by cultivating good attitude and be receptive so that people can honour them whenever they are celebrating.
In an interview shortly after the event, Father Mbasca Chindo expressed gratitude for the success of the occasion. He also thanked all who contributed to the success of the marriage.
He advised singles to be dependent on God to provide for them the man and woman of their dream. “I’m so excited and happy and grateful to God for making this day a reality. In all, I give thanks to God Almighty.
“My advice to young singles or those searching and wising to have a better marriage is that, they should look up to God as a better couple is from Him, so they should be dependent on God Almighty because it is only God that can give a good husband and wife.“Singles should be focused and look upon God and never fail to pray when finding a spouse. They shouldn’t depend on anyone when choosing a life partner but God”, he advised.
Highpoint of the event was cutting of the wedding cake, musical performance and thrilling comedy by the Master of Ceremony, popular comedian, Daddy Saro.
