Black Stars striker Abdul Majid Waris has completed the Islamic marriage rites of his longtime girlfriend, Habeeba Sinare in Accra over the weekend.
Habeeba, who is a daughter of Alhaji Saeed Sinare former Ghana Ambassador to Saudi Arabia and a niece to popular Ghana actress Kalsoum Sinare, is expected to join the FC Lorient striker at his base in France.
The marriage, which was attended by family members of both the bride and the groom as well as friends of the 2o-year-old lady, was blessed at a mosque at Pig farm, a suburb of Accra, followed by a moderate merry-making.
The former Spartak Moscow striker was however not present at the ceremony but was represented by his family. Waris was in action on that very day for his Ligue 1 side in their 1-0 win over Stade Malherbe Caen.
On 6 August 2015, Waris’ transfer to French Ligue 1 side Lorient was announced. Media reported the transfer fee as €5 million and the duration of the contract as four years.
Waris was called up to the Ghana squad against Chile in February 2012, replacing the both injured André and Jordan Ayew. He came on as a substitute for Richard Mpong as Ghana earned a 1–1 away draw at the PPL Park in Chester, Pennsylvania.
He scored the third goal in Ghana’s 4–0 in World Cup Qualifying against Sudan on 24 March 2013 at the Baba Yara Stadium in Kumasi. He also scored a goal against Egypt when Ghana defeated Egypt 6–1 in Kumasi in the first leg of the final World Cup qualifier.
