BN Weddings Hot Topic: Bride & Bridesmaids Sexy Dancing for the Groom



Here at BellaNaija Weddings we’ve noticed a hot new trend gaining ground in Nigeria and African-American weddings – the bride/bridesmaids dancing for the groom.

It’s either a pre-planned choreographed dance to a medley of songs or simply the bride grinding on her groom during the after party.

For brides who are professional artistes or dancers, it’s a chance to bring their lifelong passion into their big day.

For some other brides, it’s just a way to have fun!

Here are some of the most popular dancing videos on BellaNaija Weddings social media in the past month!

Grooms-to-be – Would you like wifey to show off what she’s got or should she save it for ‘the Other Room’?

Brides-to-be – Will you be giving your guests and hubby a taste of your hot moves on your big day?

    Is it just me but i feel raunchy dance moves should be done in close doors between the husband and wife… I get it… Ur married, heck was the point but however you see it i feel its too raunchy and too much scene for the public…. Gives too much if u ask me, lol
    My future wife should just dance and have fun the raunchy part will be in our house?
    Just my thought….

      As in its really awkward especially having ur parents/relatives watching you like “ahhn when did she learn this one”?

      ??????lmao ” ahhn when did she learn this one”? #DEAD#. Hmmmm great dance moves but hmmm imagine what the ⛪ members are thinking including pastors. Even if they could be worse, but everyone is putting their best foot forward. I’d rather grin/strip on my man behind closed doors :).. Just give him a taste of it on your wedding day & keep the rest. The last video, her hubby kinda looks uncomfortable as he’s spanning her butt 🙂

      I’d have to agree and I’m not even conservative……just classless and unnecessary

      Just the pictures are more than enough. I could not and did not watch the videos. NO need. So weddings have now turned to group orgies and pornography sessions? “”grinding”” on her man? What rubbish is that? So brides want to show themselves as whores and grooms desire to show off that they have married whores on their wedding day? And the elders, older ones, relatives, parents, church members, spiritual leaders and counselors present, they all stand/sit and watch too? and clap and applaud too? How do human beings turn themselves into animals? What then separates/distinguishes you from the common beasts that have no self control? that operate on ‘pure’ basic instinct? Your impure instincts and your warped image of yourself, your warped/twisted values, you just expose and display and naked yourself for all to see. This, to your mid, somehow ADDS VALUE to you? Because you are in a white dress and in a suit and (bow) tie and have a new piece of paper, you are different from the prostitutes/commercial sex workers (male and female), in strip clubs, sex clubs, and on the streets? Commercial sex workers have pieces of paper too, they have licenses, in some countries; they wear all kinds of fancy dress and costumes too, in some countries, whilst they also grind and bump and peel off garters. This is so disgusting. It’s bad enough that one cannot watch even Nigerian music videos (and listen to songs) because it’s the same as watching pornography but now, even weddings, WEDDINGS! cannot be considered safe, wholesome environments?

      And as for getting your bridesmaids to ‘dance’ for your husband … I have no words to describe your degree of stupidity, foolishness and self-destructive impulses. You are Miss Aunty Bellas, Super Story episodes, Stories That Touch in the making.

    The only thing ill ask is where are the parents of the girl when she’s grinding on her husband like this.. well personally no matter how high I am, I can’t dare the sexy dance for the groom, somethings are better done in the privacy of our bedroom, no matter how old I am, I am still my parents daughter and I would never embarrass them this way in front of their friends and family and yes it is embarrassing.. I mean the grinding on the husband’s own.. I don’t care if you think it’s fun or whatever.. it’s not, it is highly embarrassing.

    October 21, 2016 at 12:31 pm

    Men just came to this world to enjoy sha, lol.
    Why will I want my friends jiggling their behinds in my husband’s face? Some friends are even nice to accept to dance with you.
    Cringee at the last video. Don’t people have colleagues and church members attending their wedding? Wait till you get home. Don’t worry his friends will still know you’re sexy and a freak in bed.
    Even the garter thing, I can’t do.
    That’s how my friend’s elderly uncle was so upset and almost had a heart attack (slight exaggeration) at her wedding when the groom’s head was under his bride’s dress. He was shouting and trying to protest. They had to hold him back.

      Just asking, whose idea do you think that was?

    I personally see nothing wrong as long as you’re in appropriate clothing (like your reception dress) and you’re not exactly on the floor twerking. I wasn’t a fan of Melissa’s dance tbh but to each his own – I just don’t see the point of changing lol… I feel it should just flow.

    Anyway, something sultry like dancing (in a cute/classy way) while he is sitting down and only for like a minute or two is okay to me. Basically, I don’t feel it’s right for you not to leave anything to the imagination seeing as friends and family are there. And I’m not a fan of the whole bridesmaids & bride dance routine thing because I think it’s a little corny lol (same with when the guys do it. Cringe lol). I like the last girl who was dancing to Ukwu on her hubby. That was cute.

    Anyway, nobody was complaining when that Ghanian boy was dancing like a male stripper to Mr Easy for his wife ton his wedding oh, so don’t come and be complaining when women want to dance for their men.

    The only person allowed to grinding , humping n twerping on hubby is ME… All these bridesmaids choreographed dancing…Nah! too many thirsty chicks abeg, shit can go from fun zero to real 100 in a sec.

    As long as there’s no ratchet or ghetto behaviour

    Anyway, ratchet is relative. Some people are just goody-goody moralists.

    October 21, 2016 at 1:06 pm

    …I can imagine myself doing it and halfway through the ‘performance’ my DH will be tapping my bum saying ‘Oya my baby that’s enough…its okay ohhh’ by then he’s already standing up!

  14. hadiza

    October 21, 2016 at 1:28 pm

    Of cos you’ll see nothing wrong with it since most Nigerian cows have no self-esteem. U are shaking your ass in front of him for what?? disgusting set of beings. Then when these beasts call u sex toys, u get angry.

  15. Errrrrrrm
    Well… As much as I’m a party freak il leave the grinding for za azza room or when I’m in the club with my squad not at the reception with mom dad, uncles aunts ?, colleagues and not so close friends *cringe* to each his own tho, they look good like they are all having fun, that Drip drop video is lit!!

    • Vertblancvert.

      October 21, 2016 at 4:04 pm

      Thank you! @The real Hadiza! It’s so obvious that less than a troll, that fake that calls itself @A real Nigerian is not Nigerian and, also, created @hadiza. It hates virulently anything Nigerian and African, men, women, girls, boys, activities, organisations, food, drink, events, ANYthing and ANYone and it is so overcome by all sorts of inferiority comp[exes and self-hate. Almost anything foreign, it obsequiously fawns over, even when tasteless and classless or ignorant; and, the rare occasions you see it complimenting something or someone Nigerian or African, it is becasue the West has done so e,g, Chimamanda.

      Nigeria ROCKS! Africa ROCKS!

    Although it is fun sometimes,ladies who dance well will love to do this, but I don’t like it & will never have my bridesmaid dance for my man, not like I even know how to dance so nobody is permitted to dance like dat on my D day.

  20. Ijs

    October 21, 2016 at 3:36 pm

    Na wa o. I see nothing wrong with it. Parents have usually started dispersing when this is going on.

  21. Prince

    October 21, 2016 at 3:52 pm

    What’s wrong if they dance it off anyhow and anyway. Which one be their parents/in-laws are watching and asking where they learn it.
    Are they kids? if yes, why allowing them to marry. Two grown ups dancing and you’re here saying they should save it for the room. You can keep yours for your husband/wife alone. Everyone can not and will never be like you.
    Biko dance your singleness away jare and groove it right into the bedroom. Hypocrites.

    • Sistergirl

      October 24, 2016 at 6:00 pm

      Since it’s OK why not kudu put bed for them too, let them progress other room tins there. They are all adults na Abi?

  22. Yve

    October 21, 2016 at 4:13 pm

    Nope… Hubby will dance for me instead 😀

  23. Sisi

    I think as long as both happy to put on such a display why not. If you find it uncomfortable, at that time take yourself to get some small chops, use the photo booth or touch up your make up. Your wedding your rules – any sensible person would have considered the possibility that the elderly folk wouldn’t be too impressed and I hope would have paid their friends to create an impenetrable walk around them whilst sexy time goes on on the dance floor and ensure no children are around. You are married now after all. As for me o, I no fit especially in the way it’s done above when you become a spectacle. Weddings are about love and one expression of love is sexy sexy time, for me it wouldn’t be a deliberate act rather being lost in my own world with bae – when the right song come on and my back naturally gets into the arch position to fit snuggly………….ok bye!

    I cant, wont, never, not in this life do this rubbish dancing. where on earth is morality? what are people trying to prove? and to whom exactly? if its like this now what will happen in the next generation to come? I really pray that God will see us through. I get wedding is a place to have fun but please people that watch you grow are there present at least respect the grey hairs on their head. young girls like us can find it funny but they wont. your mum will get side eye when she goes for women’s meeting next Sunday in the church. please lets try and keep something’s private. the bedroom was innovated for stuffs like that. Now we know you can twerk and shake bum bum what else.

    • Tess

      October 21, 2016 at 4:35 pm

      Abeg keep quiet… you don dance for club finish come here dey scream immorality… old people you are talking about had their babies delivered to them by storks abi. Please you are making noise. Don’t dance at your wedding… leave people that want to dance to dance.

    • Miwa

      October 21, 2016 at 5:36 pm

      @Tess, everyone is not you that live in the club some ladies are still moral, besides you said club. Lets call a spade a spade what is the aim of all the lap dancing at a wedding reception. I thought reception was to come celebrate for a successful union, is it now a club extension? God is watching all of us.

    • Fergie

      October 25, 2016 at 12:11 pm

      Common will you keep quiet.Did you see them having their kids in public?

    When they are doing this in public, what will be left for the other room. Na wah

    October 21, 2016 at 4:40 pm

    Forgerrit. If I could dance like Melissa, I’ll so do that for my boo. The funny ones are the ridiculous girls that are terrible dancers. I’m like…who sent these ones message?

    October 21, 2016 at 5:51 pm

    Imagine if one of these bum bums just fart, pfffoofff, Odikwa risky

  28. Emma

    October 21, 2016 at 6:23 pm

    Erm nope! I’m not a fan of this new trend.I really don’t get the point of doing all of this………………….In front of family members, work colleagues, and other associates, its a bit too much imo. But we live in a society where anyone who doesn’t agree with this behavior is a prude, doesn’t have a hot body like the women in the above videos or are forming holier than thou.
    Since they like it, I love it.

    The M. C got me cracking with his sounds of comments “uuuuhh”. Make them continue, it will soon migrate to couple nude dance on wedding floors by 2030 and some people will still support it after all they are already married. The world is coming to an end my people, no wonder the word “Shame” have long been gone from people. I pass!!

    Loved Melissa’s (the PROFESSIONAL Dancer) performance for her hubby. It was entertaining, as a performance should be, & wasn’t in any way uncomfortable to watch ?. Can’t say the same for some of them, though.. ?

    • Omaoma

      October 22, 2016 at 12:02 pm

      yeah!! me too!!! You could see that it was just for her husband and not for anyone else or to show off……It was professionally done,neat and clean transitions too

  31. Oo

    October 21, 2016 at 9:40 pm

    Groom better be careful with all these bum bum in his face. If somebody mess pfffuuufff odikwa risky


    October 22, 2016 at 2:15 pm

    We honestly all need to live and let live. Our bella-naija pastors, “let he who is without sin cast the first stone”.
    Everybody is working with a different moral compass. If a bride decides to be beyonce and twerk at her wedding reception in front of her grandmother & pastors; her day, her business.
    If she decides to spend the day as the blushing bride, without as much as holding her man; her day, her business.
    One size does not fit all. Stop desperately trying to force everyone into a little box.

    So upon all the stress of bridesmaid duties… We will now have to bring out time to be rehearsing dance… Nobody should sha bring that stress near me. If you want to dance and grind in your hubby na you sabi but please don’t put unnecessary burdern on your friends
