While most of us were in bed last night dreaming of all the excitement Peggy Mitchell’s gonna be involved in since her EastEnders return, rapper Sway DaSafo was getting married in a traditional African ceremony to his long time girlfriend Helen.
Thankful for this new chapter. Last night I got engaged/ traditionally married in African custom & it was one of the best nights of my life!

The 31-year-old shared the news with his followers on Twitter, saying the celebration was one of the best nights of his life.
Sway has always been very careful about keeping his private life private, but couldn’t help but share the good news as he prepares for the next chapter in his life.
Guests included Abrantee who was DJing on the night, as well as Eddie Kadi and Fuse ODG, who also performed.
The couple’s first dance was to a popular Afrobeats track and they showed off their moves wearing matching African attire.
Mr and Mrs Safo were congratulated by other celebs such as Wretch 32, Lethal B, Ghetts and Mista Jam.
@SwayUK congrats brother that's inspirational
