American Singer, Kirk Franklin, gave the hand of his daughter, Carrington in marriage to a Nigerian Man, Maxx-Nakwaasah on October 1st, 2016.
The beautiful ceremony, which held in Fort Worth, Texas, USA, was officiated by Kirk Franklin doubling as the father of the bride and the Pastor.
In a heartfelt note released by the emotional father, Kirk said he still had trouble seeing his daughter as a grown woman that she is now, stating that although she wasn’t even gone at the time he was writing the words, he was missing her already.
“She’s getting married today… and I’ve spent an hour and a half rewriting this,” he wrote. “Crying, smiling, and preparing to let go… of my little girl. I will walk her down the aisle, then I will officiate the wedding.
“Why? Because I’m selfish, for my little girl. And she asked her daddy to! How could I say no?! I pray I don’t make a fool of myself and cry more than I speak. God, it’s so hard to release her. If I could I would keep her a little girl, FOREVER. Selfish, I know. But at this moment, I want to be.
“I want to go kart riding, jet skiing, middle school basketball games, movies over and over again….just me and her. This is hard as Hell. She has no idea, cause she’s not a daddy. I am. A proud one. I hope I was a good one.
“I’m sorry for that one spanking you got that killed me more than it did you! I’m proud and love your future husband. Jealous, but proud.
“He comes first now. I’ll have to get used to that, cause I’m selfish, for you. “Only pictures get stuck in time, not people. They grow, and need to be let go…. I’m going to try really hard,…but please, when I see you with your new life, let me hold you every now and then, and pretend….that I’m never letting go. Forever daddy’s girl. [Signed, A girl’s daddy.]”
Carrington was legally adopted by the singer in 1989 and finally found love in the arms of the young African-American, whose father is Nigerian and mother, white-American.
Congratulations to the newly wedded couple and welcome Carrington Franklin to the Nigerian Family.
