President of the Ghana Football Association, Kwesi Nyantakyi, has tied the knot with his long time fiancée at a private ceremony in Accra.
25-year-old Mariam Nyantakyi becomes the second wife of the Vice President of the Confederation of African Football (CAF).
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.
Nyantakyi has been a Muslim since age five.
Nyantakyi has endeared himself very much to most Ghanaians due to his several achievements as a football administrator. In 2012, he was named the 32 most influential Ghanaian.
He has been president of the GFA since 2005.
