Mzznaki Tetteh posted her engagement pictures online in early June 2016 to celebrate the good news with family and friends but was instantly met with unjustified animosity.
She was subjected to body shaming immediately the pictures of her and her fiance, Kojo Amoah, were uploaded on her Instagram page.
Tetteh doesn’t normally post pictures with her fiance on social media and people made fun of her size with some harsh comments. There were also some very supportive messages, but still, a number of people were commenting about her weight which made the photos go viral.
“RIP that man’s spine,” one user commented. “I gotta hand it to him his arms are stronger than my last relationship,” wrote another.
Despite all of the negativity, Tetteh focused on the compliments and the well-wishes.
“Still confident … your rubbish comments ain’t ruining my happiness … thanks to all for the compliments and best wishes … am honored,” Tetteh wrote in the caption on another photo from the engagement series.
At the end of the month, she walked down the aisle to marry the love of her life.
“I just can’t imagine what I will do if I didn’t have you to hold my hands and look into my eyes to tell me as yours forever,” she wrote on social media about her husband. “Just wanna let u know that the flames of passion between us will never be extinguished.
“You are the reason why I smile and why our love thrives between miles.”
“I can BOLDLY say am the luckiest woman to have a HUSBAND like you and I want the whole world to know that you will forever be the man for me,” she said. “Am glad I got the dibs for you. For you are a rare species and probably the last of the world’s best husbands.”
On June 25, 2016 the couple said “I do” and Tetteh shared some of the pictures on her social media. Check them out below.
The pair also had a traditional wedding:
