A Zimbabwean pastor who could not condone unusual dance steps of a bridesmaid has gone viral for stopping the wedding party and berating parents and guests for enjoying the display.
The pastor was seen in a viral video stopping the wedding party after one of the bridesmaids twerked while they were dancing.
He stopped the wedding party of the couple only identified as Emmerson and Yvonne because the bridal team did some dances, he perceived as seductive.
The party featured dances in pairs – one bridesmaid and one groomsman.
The first pair did their part and it was well received by the crowd, shortly after, the disc jockey was asked to stop the music by an unidentified man believed to be a pastor, reports iHarare.
According to iHarare, he said:
“Right, DJ excuse, listen to what is being said from the mic, we are celebrating here but we want to notify each other that what is important is to celebrate” said the man.
“These people (bridal train) will dance and return to their parents’ homes but the wedding was organised by Emmerson and Yvonne who at the end of the day we want blessed.”
Taking a dig at parents and church elders, the man questions the dances by the bridal train. He said;
“The dances that are happening here, parents and elders, you are all watching and when they finish twerking they want to be intimate, they are not brides.
Don’t entertain these things, saying it is today’s generation, you are promoting immorality in church, we may rejoice but when they leave they want to be intimate, this is nonsense. At the end of the day, you are going to have pregnancies that’s why we implore elders to monitor rehearsals to see if moral behaviour is taking place.”
