There had been speculations that the boy might be the only child in his family, hence this early marriage. But there were arguments about that as it was later revealed that the boy has a senior brother who is a graduate and works in a hospital in Anambra State.

To financially support the young couple after the traditional wedding, the boy’s family opened a retail store for them.


The 16-year-old girl is from Nnewi, Anambra State, Nigeria. The boy named Somto reportedly dropped out of school and insisted on getting married. As the last child, the girl’s family was not enthusiastic about it, but finally gave in and the traditional marriage between both teenagers took place last weekend in Anambra State, according to Anaedoonline.ker.
