He said they did everything, with the exception of the purchasing of their wedding rings within the GHS300.

The couple gave these submissions prior to the launching of their first book titled, "Love Locked Down" on Saturday, May 15, at the Ecobank Headquarters Auditorium at Ridge in Accra.
The book which Okyeame Kwame and Annica wrote with Kyei Amoako, the man who compiled their ideas for the book, has elements of the experiences the two have gathered in their 12-year marriage and what they think other people can learn from.
“We didn’t set out deciding to post pictures of us together on social media, as a couple, we just go with the flow. We don’t really plan to say post a picture and say something about it. But when we posted the pictures people started asking us questions in our inbox asking if marriage was as nice as we made it seem”, Annica said.
“Soon people started coming to us with marital problems and whenever we asked them questions, we realised that many people go into marriage knowing there are problems and then they end up not being able to handle it.
“So based on all that, we decided to put what we do into a book and also offer some of the recommendations we have given to people that have worked,” she added.
Some of the topics the book discusses include crucial conversations before you say ‘I do’, why are you getting married?, sex before marriage, making and managing money as a couple, conflict and resolution, religious differences, keeping things hot with romance, sex and intimacy and so much more.
