#FlowerJawn: A new phrase; ‘Flower Jawn‘ has been added to the wedding dictionary and it’s all thanks to Denzyl Amankwah. A Flower Jawn (aka Flower man) is very similar to the role a flower girl plays at weddings but this time done by an adult. Denzyl shared a viral video of himself tossing flowers at his friend’s wedding in Montego Bay, Jamaica with the caption; ‘I told ya’ll I was accepting only one role from now on…#FlowerJawn‘.
In an interview with Yahoo Life, he shared that he made a bold proposal to the bride and groom, Cashwayne and Damilola Brown during their rehearsal dinner and they accepted. He shared, ‘I was inspired to take on the Flower Jawn role after seeing videos on TikTok of ‘flower men’. I just felt that it matched my energy. I’ve been in so many weddings and I told them, I need to retire as a groomsman and the only role that I’ll be accepting from now on is the flower guy‘.
