Raymond Archer, owner of Enquirer Newspaper, got married to his love of two years, Nura Salifu.

{Correction: This article previously stated he was married before, but this is his first marriage, although he has children from a previous relationship.}

The two-day affair took Accra by storm, as the bride is the daughter of Salma Salifu, a well-known fashion designer who has been featured in the Wall Street Journal.Raymond Archer & Nura Salifu Ghanaian Wedding-BellaNaija August 2015-Photo Aug 09, 6 24 12 PMNo wonder the bride wore a whopping SEVEN outfits for the traditional engagement on the 8th of August 2015, and for the Nikkai the next day. All her outfits were designed by her mother, of course. The colors of the day for Saturday were fuchsia pink and guests were dressed in all white. The bride was accompanied by 18 of her friends and family as she danced. Esteemed guests included Adama Indimi and Amissah Arthur, wife of the Ghanaian Vice President.

The pair has been dating for the past two years and Raymond decided to propose to her in the midst of all friends and family by throwing a party during the Christmas holidays. He has also decided to convert from Christianity to Islam because of the marriage. According to Starr FM online. He stated,

“I was born a Christian, baptized a Christian but all my friends are Muslims. I am making the decision and my parents and in-laws have been very supportive. My father has been very helpful and the understanding is there.”

They were joined in matrimony by 92-year-old Ghana’s National Chief Imam, Sheikh Dr. Osman Nuhu Sharubutu. The groom was given the Muslim name Abdul Aziz to mark his conversion. The MC was Live FM’s Kofi Okyere Darko (KOD).

    its obvious he’s a gold digger. and changing of religion is a no, this serves as a warning for parent to train their kids aright before it seems too late.

    • Ay

      August 14, 2015 at 3:59 pm

      If it was the other way round and he converted to Christianity because of his wife, I’m pretty certain you wouldn’t have called him a gold digger. If you have nothing good to say, please keep your thoughts to yourself. Remember silence is golden. May God forgive you.

    • dt

      August 15, 2015 at 9:35 pm

      But the truth is, HE married HER, and not HER marrying him…..so he needs to start bearing her last name….lolzzzzz
      (jokes apart) This is not the issue of changing religion…i have seen christian women marrying muslims and had to change, and its almost like the norm these days, but the man changing is rarely so….so its rare but at the end of the day, its whatever works for them… Wishing them all the best in this journey of eternal love.

    • Ola

      Wow! Changing of religion means not been trained right ‘cos it’s for marriage….. That’s very myopic.

      August 15, 2015 at 1:39 pm

      Can we described the lady too as such, since the guy apart from running his own paper also runs a printing press that does some 25 percent of almost all government printing jobs, serves the private sector and owns a chain of estate property some of which serves as private rental premises for banks and other corporate bodies. This guy as far back 2004 owned a Bentley, jaguar cars among other expensive vehicles.

    He was never a Christian. He never had a relationship with Christ.

    • DD

      August 14, 2015 at 4:42 pm

      Truly speaking, you just took words out of my mouth.. Point blank period. He was just a religious person that had interest in christainity but never reallly participated in it.. and Christainity is not a religion….for those that will want to reply this…. you will still not make sense if you try to opose the above comment…

      August 14, 2015 at 5:40 pm

      Christianity is a lifestyle and it is very hard for a person to just change his lifestyle….You are right, he never participated in Christianity….probably an observer

    The dude sha….
    How come the bride is a dressed like a Yoruba/Nigerian bride?
    Almost every country in Africa has stolen one thing or another from the Nigerian way of getting married and they will still be beefing us.

    • SOLO ACT

      August 14, 2015 at 10:44 pm

      asin i was wondering oo! soon they would start wearing ibo outfits and hausa outfits while still beefing nigeria. where is the kente? they way they ties the gele was somehow sha lol

    • Ceecee

      August 18, 2015 at 2:10 pm

      @SOLO ACT exactly! I’ve seen numerous Ghanaians copying Nigerian attire for their traditional wedding or even parties these days. Before they were content with kente and now naija styles is the norm lol….It’s not bad though, its good to see different cultures inspired by others!

    • don't say that

      August 14, 2015 at 11:53 pm

      Dearest many muslims from Ghana,Tchad etc… have roots from the Housa Fulani. I am myself Half Nigerian/Senegalese with my grandmother who was a Hausa Fulani…my wedding years ago, I was dressed a a real housa fulani traditional outfits.. Most Muslims people from Ghana, Benin, Niger, Chad can trace their roots from Nigeria… if you look at the bride well and her traits.. she has fulani, housa blood in her…

    • D!D!

      August 15, 2015 at 7:43 pm

      That’s not Hausa/fulani attire. It is Yoruba – apart from the henna design

    • mrs chidukane

      August 14, 2015 at 7:27 pm

      That’s the bella naija influence. The style of tying gele, the Aso oke, the Asoebi, naija popping and taking over. This is why I was offended on the Rwandan wedding post where some people said naija take note. Like whet? Nigeria is setting the pace for African weddings, truth. That they had a simple wedding and others preferred a lavish wedding doesn’t mean one is better than the other or everyone must tone it down.

    • Iris

      August 14, 2015 at 8:47 pm

    • Dd

      August 15, 2015 at 8:32 pm

      BECAUSE THEY ARE HAUSA. There are Hausas all over west Africa you know. The three northern regions in Ghana are Hausa. Read and travel more.

    • Ruby

      January 14, 2016 at 8:15 am

      Wrong, the three northern regions of Ghana are not Hausa. They are predominantly Mole-Dagomba (mamprusi, Dagomba etc), Dagati, Gurunsi etc. People who speak Hausa in the north are not up to 1%. People in north have cultural similarities with Nigerians because the Mole-Dagomba migrated from Nigeria (zamfara, East of Lake Chad).

      You come across as a very ignorant person for lack of a better word. I am of mixed heritage. Nigerian Dad and Ghanaian Mom and I have lived my life in both countries. I can confidently say Agushi or Egusi has roots in Ghanaian cuisine just has much as Nigerian cuisine. What is this rubbish about Ghana thief thief….. If I decided to have a wedding in Ghana and wear Nigerian traditional dresses will that be me converting Nigerian Gele into Ghanaian. Please I have seen Nigerian brides wear sari does that make it an Indian lady write Sari waka go Nigeria, Make una no come lie later se una traditional wear…. We de watch una o…… Please the world has become a global village….Avoid being narrow minded…. Or better still shut up and save the world from your ignorant spills of venom!!!!!!!!!!!

      August 15, 2015 at 8:37 pm

      Kente is mainly for the Ashanti’s and Ewe’s of Ghana. That’s how a typical Ghanaian muslin wedding is done. Obviously your education system has failed you cuz your history teacher should have thought you migrations and formations of most west African countries. Am Togolese and that’s how a Muslim wedding is done here too. Travel more.

    Oh goodness! it has started again! i think people are used to seeing Ghanaian Asante weddings. These people are northerners, I believe, and their culture is similar to the Yoruba muslim culture.

    • nnenne

      August 14, 2015 at 11:35 pm

      Ghanaian head scarfs are different. The stiff head scarf is a Nigerian thing even the long skirts Igbos and other other Nigerians have always worn Ichafu/ Gele. The one thing that is purely Yotuba is the BUBA. Other African countries were not wearing stiff headscarf and long skirts like this. . They wore different kinds of headscarf. Nothing wrong if they get influenced. After all we wear English suit. .
      The beauty is that internationally people know it is a Nigerian thing. If you are dressed like this outside Africa, they usually ask if you are a Nigerian. Fact!

  23. Iris

    August 14, 2015 at 8:48 pm

    Would it be this big a deal if the woman converted for him? Abegi. I’ve never even understood the concept of converting denominations within christianity so let us start from there.

  24. Chenti

    August 14, 2015 at 10:37 pm

    Please learn just a little about African Muslim wedding tradition so you can save yourselves the embarrasment of thinking this is a Yoruba tradition. With the Nikkah (again Muslim traditional marriage ceremony, not Yoruba) the bride changes several times all of which are complemented with the henna designs and gele. The hats also worn by the men is also not a Nigerian tradition, but an Islamic one which originated from the Arabs. Enquire more about the Nigerian tradition and stop claiming others’ for them. She stunned at her Nikkah.

    • mrs chidukane

      August 14, 2015 at 11:12 pm

      @ Chenti, my bad but isn’t the bride wearing Aso oke in the first picture? Guess my eyes are deceiving me. Also who started the embellished gele trend? You can deny or shout all you want. The influences are obvious and that’s ok. Nothing wrong with that.

    August 14, 2015 at 11:05 pm

    I really don’t know why it hurts Christians so much to know that he converted to Islam to be with his bride the right way. Is it your conversion?? Why must people hate so much on the religion of others?? And the issue about Nigerian ethnocentrism is just absolute nonsense. I really do hope that Nigerians get it that no one is striving to be like them. Every one is trying to develop. Quit always trying to step on others and focus on developing as a people. What you see in the pictures is a demonstration of ISLAMIC culture and not Nigerian. The hats, the dressing, the henna and overall appearance. You can however claim the gele. Let us embrace and be happy for one another instead of saying hurtful things that are not necessary to begin with.

    Abeg go jorrr which gele?do Ghanaian ppl tie gele like dis? Dis up here is Nigerian traditional wedding style.yes for nikkai she wud cover her hair n change but dis is Nigerian dressing.the hats worn by men is Nigerian traditon,arabs wear their hats and it’s different.

      We forget historical facts that before the colonial masters created artificial borders and boundaries, we were all one. We use to trade by barter and exchange ideas and traditions. Nigerians should go back and study history of our continental. The yorubas and igbos are notorious for being ethnocentric and arrogant. All other ethnic groups are reasonable.

    It looks like it was a beautiful wedding. I don’t understand why someone passed a comment saying ” the guy is a gold digger’? what gold is he digging for ? is it because the article mentions her mother was featured in the wall street journal and a famous designer ? Ok. I goggled her mother, theres no wiki page of her and the article on WSJ doesn’t even say much about her. Didn’t the article say he owns a printing press too? Lets not quickly judge into conclusion. To me, this bellanaija story sounds like it was writing from the bride’s camp.

    If the Ghanaian wedding blogs did their jobs by featuring all Ghanaian cultures instead of the Ashanti culture (kente) all the time most people won’t confuse the Northern/Muslim culture with that of the Yorubas.

    Everything about this wedding seemed beautiful – the clothes, the bride and groom. But I still say, I was confused and had to scroll back to the top to make sure it was a Ghanaian wedding. Everything about it had the Naija connotation to it. 8-10 years ago when Dele Momodu’s Ovation was still en vogue, we saw many happening, Moslem and Christian Ghanaian weddings and they were NOT anything like this. Very traditional Kente, typical Ghana, etc. fashion. All the aso-oke gele used by the bride in this wedding, even the parents, are typical Naija style.

    @cunny eyes
    Can’t help laughing but I think it’s Henna. Shiny Sisi is a …ahem…(clears throat)… fashionista…on the gram. As for the groom, I don’t know when he became a ‘popular journalist’, especially considering that his newspaper hardly sells and he is benefitting from the largesse of the ruling government and the other ‘ things’ he’s been doing. Karma however is real . I wish Nura however, a happy marriage

    Other nija countries wear ankara period or some other sedate prints. I met a kenyan lady a few years ago who stared in wonder at the nija outfits. She had never seen gele and the nija dressing like that. Other countries still have their unique culture and outfits. This guy though woman wrapper who converts from xtianity to islam not good

    I do agree with you eaglebaby or whatever your name is, it is true that Christianity is a way of life as you people have been following. Do you know the founder of Christianity? Well, it is Paul who founded Christianity not Jesus the son of Mary. And Christianity has nothing to do with Jesus p.b.u.h.

I think they are questioning the conversion because it most probably seems he did it for the woman(a muslim woman isn’t allowed to be marry a non-muslim man thus he most probably had to convert in order to be allowed to marry her). You shouldn’t convert your religion for any man or woman, you should only convert because you believe in the religion. My parents are of different religions, they’ve been married for 33years and none of them has converted. They still practise their various religion. I once asked my mum why she hasnt converted. She said she loves my dad very much but religion is between you and your God and unless you believe in it, dont convert because on judgement day, God isnt going to “understand” that you did it out of love. You should practise relgiion out of faith and not for anyother reason, not even love. That being said, happy married life to them. They are a beautiful couple.

    Happy married life to them. He’s a grown man, he can convert to Hinduism if he so desires. Not anybody’s business.

    Did anyone notice her face????? THE MAKEUP WAS MINIMAL!! goodness gracious! you don’t have to pack everything on your face biko else the next moment your other half is filing for a divorce day after wedding. Biko resemble yasef small on your wedding day let people know it’s you.
    meanwhile, he changed to her religion, so what? It’s his cup of tea. If it makes them happy, good. At least they are getting married.. All the Christians opening mouth here, who made you judge over all? the religion teaches the belief of God so what is your problem? carry your cross and run your race. let the other person do theirs.We are just too hypocritical as humans, worse as religious people. The way we criticize each other though, you wonder where the Christ-like attitude is.

    I’m surprised at all the comments about the bride’s attire. About twenty years ago, Yorubas were exclusively into Ito and buba while Ghanaian women wore slit and Kaba which is more like a fitted blouse and a skirt. Naturally over the years both cultures have evolved and the slit and Kaba has borrowed from French style so that the slit which is this brides skirt has become very elaborate. That’s the same way that iro has metamorphed into how it’s sewn these days.

    With the advent of trade and globalization it’s unfair to call each other “thieves” of culture. We learn from each other and change as we interact. Please let’s stop this hating.

    Why are ghanians dressed like Nigerians? I guess Nigerian style of dress is becoming popular with different African groups.
