Kwesi Nyantakyi Marries 19-Year-Old As Second Wife

President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has tied the knot with his long time fiancée at a private ceremony in Accra.

19-year-old Mariam Nyantakyi becomes the second wife of the Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).

Mr Nyantakyi may have intended to keep the ceremony small and quiet, but a few of his wedding guests were quick to post videos of his special day on Twitter and Instagram.

Mariam looked glamorous in a lacy full length yellow dress for the Islamic marriage.

Kwesi Nyantakyi has been a Muslim since age five.

He has endeared himself very much to most Ghanaians due to his several achievements as a football administrator. In 2012, he was named the 32nd most influential Ghanaian.

He has been president of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) since 2005.
