“Western Wedding Traditions Sideline Mothers Of The Bride” – Chimamanda Adichie
Popular Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie, recently shared her views on weddings as she posited that Western wedding traditions sideline the mother of the bride.
She made this known in an Instagram post on Wednesday where she recounted the role her mother played in her wedding, as opposed to “western wedding tradition.”
The renowned writer is popularly known for her feminist views, which were also reflected in her recent post.
According to Adichie, convention is something made up by somebody and then repeated by others.
She stated that if a person felt convention was wrong for them or their skin bristled and their spirit stalled at the thought of doing something “the way it is done”, then they should stop and act.
