Celebrated playwright, Uncle Ebo Whyte, has supported calls by the Church of Pentecost to discourage amorous pre-wedding photos.
His support is not based on the amorous nature of such photographs as faulted by the church, but the usefulness of the practice.
Speaking on Joy FM Monday, Mr. Whyte argued that the practice, which is alien to Ghanaian culture, has no significance at all to the marriage.
“I don’t care if the (pre-marital photo) is amorous or not but what is the point? I want someone to convince me if it is necessary beyond the fact that someone did it and others think that let us also do it,” he said.
He added, “I think that pre-wedding photos like a lot of the things get crazy and we need to think about them again and ask ourselves what is the point, where did it come from and what is the justification for it?”
Mr. Whyte further states that people engage in the practice “without thinking through why there is the need to do it because your wedding is coming on and you will have all the pictures in the world.”
