A moment of loosening up and having some much-needed fun with family and friends, everyone most definitely looks forward to it.

I mean, who wouldn’t when there’s going to be great food, varieties of drinks and great music?

At a typical wedding reception, the newlyweds are welcomed to the venue with an entrance song usually chosen by them.

As this has become a big deal, especially in African ceremonies, the groom and his groomsmen, as well as, the bride and her team leave no stone unturned to ensure they kick off the festivities and merrymaking with a bang. Some even go as far a learning a formation dance just to enter the venue in style!
