Nigerian Traditions
The wedding process begins with a feast held by the families of the bride and groom where they get to know each others family. At that time the grooms family gives the brides family gifts.

The bride then comes to live with the grooms and his family, if that goes well then the marriage ceremony is held. In tribal areas of Nigeria a husband is never allowed to call his wife by her name. Only relatives and the mother's children are allowed to call the wife by her name. A woman is called by the name of her father.

Before a marriage in Nigeria ceremony the villagers get together and sing that the bride is about to be wed. After been carried into a small hut where she stays until her husband joins her where the marriage will be consummated. The groom can only enter the hut after he has given out gifts to all the guests.

Then after the marriage in Nigeria, the next morning a goat is killed and it's blood is poured over the huts threshold. The girl's mother asks her if she is pleased with her husband and then singing and dancing take place and people can pay 1 penny to see the bride and another penny if they want to rub her body with camwood which is a sign of good luck.
