3 min read
These are the two weddings that could by termed weddings of the year in Nigeria. The two wedding ceremonies in question lived up to their billings in every sense of the word as they were not devoid of elegance, panache and sheer opulence.
 
Otunba Mike Adenuga 
 
The palatial home of Otunba Mike Adenuga, the billionaire Chairman of Globacom, in Banana Island Estate, Ikoyi, Lagos, was last Saturday besieged by all hues in the social and political circles for Oyin Adenuga’s private engagement ceremony. 
 
Adenuga, who is known to do his things in a big way, made sure the party was a very private one and strictly meant for the super rich, with the presence of security details around the venue in Ikoyi.
 
 
The wedding was a secret affair and only came to public knowledge when Emilia’s make-up artist, Banke Meshida-Lawal, shared photos of her work on the bride’s face on her Instagram page. 
 
The bride looked stunning in royal blue attire which was enhanced by silver accessories, such as earrings, neckpiece and a clutch purse. Earlier before the wedding pictures hit the social media, it was like all and sundry were sworn to keep the whole thing very quiet. And we can tell you categorically that many who normally should know didn’t know about the event and were actually also not invited.
 
Those who were fortunate enough to attend the engagement were told and not to take pictures of any kind at all except maybe themselves. The colours for the engagement were “cobalt blue and emerald green gele” (head tie) for women and same colour of cap for men. Aso-ebi was said to have been for about 60,000 only. 
 
Now to the white wedding. It was also a strict, upscale black-tie event. And security was top notched for the engagement, that of the white weeding was also something to behold. 
 
The lucky groom is Adeolu Abayomi Olufeko, who is not a pushover by any standards. In fact, the Nigerian-American, known as a digital strategist and artist, is an acknowledged guru at what he does, an expert and authority in Graphics, has done quite well for himself. 
 
He attended Minnesota State University in Saint Paul, United States, where he studied Computer Science, specialising in Multimedia. Before relocating to the US in the 90s, he once lived his 
 
 
The Amosun’s and Dabiris
 
 
Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, was a beehive of eminent personalities across the country and from all walks of life. The ancient city stood still for the traditional marriage of these two political bigwigs in the Southwest. 
 
Oladipo Dabiri is the son of Abike Dabiri-Erewa, Senior Special Assistant on Foreign Relations and the Diaspora to President Muhammadu Buhari whilst Ayomide is daughter of Ogun State Governor Ibikunle Amosun. 
 
The superlative wedding was a grand event attended by who-is-who in the political and social scene. 
 
The parents ensured that the high-class shindig lived up to expectation as the high society men and women of class that graced the wedding. 
 
The second leg of the wedding is scheduled for later in the year. The long list of guests include the Acting President Yemi Osinbajo and his wife, Dolapo; Lagos Governor Akinwunmi Ambode;
