The groom, Justice Hymns, we hear, is Ghananian, and [it gets even better] he’s an actor!

The bride, Abeanaa Boutemaa, is also Ghanaian, and really, their love shows us that four-letter word remains just as powerful as ever.

Justice is said to be a Ghanaian actor widely known as Mmebusem and regularly features in Kumawood, Ghana’s ‘local’ movie industry.
