A Nigerian man has taken to Twitter to recount how he was forced to shave his beards by the church on his wedding day.
@Emolad_ disclosed that the church refused to join him and his bride in holy matrimony until he shaved off his beards, and warned him that he won’t make heaven if he continues keeping it.
According to him, he and his best man had to rush to the nearest mall to buy shaving sticks to shave off their beards before the wedding commenced.
Sharing pictures of his face before and after shaving his beards, @Emolad_ tweeted,
“Still hurts till now, on my wedding day, I got the greatest shock of my life for this right there in the church, this was shaved. A lot of people ranted. They didn’t start wedding till I shaved completely. They said I can’t get to heaven wit dt beard. I’m a leader #DLConversations
I was so embarrassed. We were taken to the mall, and shaving stick was used in my beard and my best man’s beard against our wishes. For the wedding to hold. It took me time to heal up ..it hurts. So people keeping beard 🤣🤣🤣, no heaven for you ooooo
You people would know the pain I go through everytime someone comes visiting and checks through our photo album. I’m tired of explaining what transpired. Reason I’ve forgiven but difficult to forget. Worse embarrassment ever.”
