Akwaboah Explains Why He cleaned his lips after kissing his wife


Highlife musician Akwaboah Jnr. has addressed the wave of mockery and criticism following his wedding ceremony, particularly regarding his decision to wipe his lips after kissing his bride.

He clarified that this gesture was not meant to imply that he didn’t enjoy the kiss, as some have suggested. Instead, he explained that he simply wanted to avoid having his face look awkward, as lipstick can sometimes smear after a kiss.

“Nobody marries their enemies. That’s the choice I made, and I’m happy about it,” he said in an interview on The Delay Show, which aired on June 8, 2024, and was monitored by GhanaWeb.

“I have performed at many wedding ceremonies. I have noticed that after the bride and groom kiss, the groom would have lipstick all over his lips. So, I didn’t clean because of what people were saying out there; I cleaned because I knew her lipstick would be all over my lips. So, for my face not to look awkward, I had to clean it.”
