Ramsey Noah weds Nadia Buhari in Merry Men 3
Actors Ramsey Noah and Nadia Buari threw fans into a state of confusion as pictures of their wedding photos appeared online.
However, while some thought it to be a real wedding, the pictures originated from the yet-to-be-released movie Merry Men 3, an Ayo Makun (AY) film.
Ramsey Noah has been married since 2002 to Emelia Philips, the mother of his three children, a daughter and two boys. However, his marital life and family are kept far away from the eyes of the public.
Nadia Buari’s marital status is, however, not clear, but she has four daughters.
In the pictures shared by Nadia Buhari and AY, the veteran actor and actress were seen dressed in a white suit and a gorgeous white wedding gown.
The pictures also depicted a plush and elaborate wedding ceremony with eye-catching sparkling hall decorations.
Ghanaian actress Nadia Buari would be making her first appearance in the Merry Men franchise. It is still being determined if she is replacing an actress or a whole new character in the comic-action thriller.
The actress is, however, not making it easy for their fans; in another Instagram post, she teased fans with separate pictures she tagged, “The pre-wedding photos y’all missed”.
