Kiki Osinbajo
The current VP Professor Yemi Osinbajo, GCON and his lovely wife, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo has 2 lovely daughters. The eldest of the girls being the newly married Mrs. Oludamilola Bakare and the younger by name "Kiki Osinbajo", the entrepreneur who not too long ago opened her own business concern with loads of pomp, there's also the only boy.

Kiki is the subject of our attention and the impressive butterfly in the picture above. The young lady who only just added a year today, she's now 25 years old born March 18, 1993, after her sister's impressive though low-key wedding is the gorgeous maiden that wore the nice outfit with the butterfly flare to her sister's wedding yesterday.

The 5foot 1 inch petite beauty is the young CEO behind her own brand "Glam'd Africa, which is the umbrella brand that would house many brands/concessions like a conglomerate that the young entrepreneur would be unveiling gradually. Glam'd Africa Beauty House, one of the brands under the mother brand was opened for business sometime last year, September 2017 to be more precise and is a one stop venue for everything beauty related, be it make up, hair styling, clothing, nail art, skin care and sale of accessories.

Kiki's brand was prominently involved in major aspects of her sister's wedding. Kudos must be given the young lady for delivering a superb job in all ramifications, as Oludamilola and their mom, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo looked chic and elegant, without looking like a "pampered over made up peacock"! Even Kiki herself, the 2016 graduate of Law and Business Management from Aston University, Birmingham, United Kingdom, looked totally on point on her sister's very happy day.

We know so much have already been said, so we wouldn't be doing an overkill by saying too much again.

So this part would be more of a pictorial excursion about the events that has been tagged #famil2018, the awesome many days nuptial ceremony between Jamil Mohammed Abubakar and Fatima Dangote. Incidentally, Fatima is already Mrs. Abubakar, infact she has been that for 2 days already.

The ceremonies have spanned Kano, which is the ancestral home of the Dangotes, so it was why the wedding Fatiha/Nikkai happened there, officiated by the most important person in Kano, His Royal Majesty, the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II. So after that happenstance in good ole Kano, the party then moved to Abuja yesterday, Saturday March 17, 2018 for another humongous reception.

As expected it was colourful, it was fun and exciting and had the bigwigs in attendance. Check them out, in blazing colours! We have no mixed a few Kano pictures with the ones from Abuja.

More after the break.


Jamil & Fatima Abubakar

Bags load of delight

Fatima weds Jamil is gradually turning out to be the stuff fairytale nuptials are made of. Everything about the different ceremonies reminds one that the 2 families are most definitely powerhouses, with awesome means, resources/wherewithal. Especially when Fatima's dad is the richest African alive and one of the world's richest men! And also Jamil's dad was the former Inspector General of Police of Nigeria, the very pinnacle of a policeman's career. Not ending there, Jamil himself is a very rich, very affluent young man, a serious super car buff who owns some of the most awesome cars in his garage, not to talk of his humongous watch collection that can build several houses for some other people.

So you can imagine that whatever would concern the Dangotes and the Abubakars would be top notch, over the top, seven stars by all standards and first class all the way.

So check out the 2nd picture above, they are colourful, very beautiful, smart small travel boxes that the couple Jamil and Fatima have packaged as gifts for those privileged enough to be guests at their nuptial. When you have (it) one must definitely make use of it and that's what the above says.

Lucky for the guests!

Miss Oludamilola Osinbajo now former, after the ceremony this afternoon, that made her Mrs. Damilola Bakare is one beautiful lady. Everything about the young lady just speaks beauty, class and distinction. So today, Saturday, March 17, 2018 she ceased to be a spinster anymore, as she was joined in holy matrimony to her beau of many years, young pastor in the making, Oluseun Bakare, the 3rd son of HAJIA BOLA MUINAT SHAGAYA at a well packaged, not too big a ceremony in Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory. Though not too big a ceremony, but several Governors, government functionaries and special guests were in attendance. Church wedding was at the National Ecumenical Centre Abuja, also known as National Church of Nigeria, the reception was at the State House Conference Centre.

Damilola looked ethereal in her white wedding dress, giving the already pure coloured outfit gorgeous energy radiation that embraces! Her dad wore a smart, carton colour Aso Oke Agbada on a white native, while the naturally beautiful mom wore a simple but very elegant, peach lace outfit. Groom's mom as expected was on point in her awesome looking 2 piece (Iro & buba) peach outfit which she garnished very well with another awesomely beautiful diamond and ruby jewelry set, that was standout. Seun wore a smart 2 piece navy tuxedo that fitted him like a glove.

One of those who graced the occasion at a venue just a stone throw from his own abode, was the President of Nigeria, Mallam Muhammad Buhari GCFR, we also saw the likes of Governors Rauf Aregbesola, Senator Abiola AJIMOBI, Pastor Paul Adefarasin, Dele Alake, John Momoh and many others.

Though not much pictures of the event are out yet, we have a few for your viewing pleasure and delight.  Check 'em out!

HAJIA Fatima Abubakar

Like you all already know, the former Miss Fatima Dangote, now Mrs. Fatima Jamil Mohammed Abubakar is one of the eldest daughters of Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Africa's official most affluent man.

Apart from the fact that she is an Executive Director Commercial NASCON & Savannah Sugar, a given at one of her dad's vast business concerns, she's the owner, CEO/MD of her own thriving and successful lifestyle business concern, "The Cupcake Factory", which she established about 7 years ago.

Fatima is a graduate of Law, with an LLB (Hons) from one of the top higher institutions in the UK, the University of Surrey, Guildford, Surrey, England. Before joining her dad's company, she was an associate of Banwo and Ighodalo law firm, which is one of the renowned law firms in Nigeria. She joined Dangote Group in 2014, as the Special Assistant to the MD Cement, before she later became "Group Corporate Strategy Specialist" in the brand. She became a director in 2016.

The quiet and soft spoken, beautiful female version of her lookalike dad, is the epitome of humility and grace, unlike many who if they were in her position would have been loud and uncontrollable braggarts.

She became Mrs. Jamil  Mohammed Abubakar only yesterday, Friday, March 15, 2018 at a colourful event well steeped in the tradition and culture of the Northern part of the country.

May Allah bless the union all round. Amin!

Aliko Dangote welcoming PMB

We are sure, you are a bit surprised at the title of this post,  as we are already referring to the couple as a married Mr & Mrs Abubakar! That's because with yesterday's ceremony the DAURIN AURE in Kano, it meant now that they are officially now Mr & Mrs and every other thing done afterwards, are just additional to the main dish itself.

If you had taken time to read through the processes we had written about, you would have noticed that what happened yesterday in Kano was actually the most important part of the processes. The "DAURIN AURE" the wedding Fatiha/nikkai is the actually exchange of marital vows!

The representatives of the bride's family (men), led by the President of the Federal Republic, President Muhammadu Buhari, who acted as the bride's guardian and the representatives of the groom's family (men) in front of a religious leader here being His Royal Highness, the Emir of Kano, Mallam Muhammad Sanusi II, ably supported and assisted by the Chief Imam of Kano, Prof. Sani Zahradden conducted the whole affair in his palace at 11am.

The representative of the groom's family, Jamil's guardian who the bride- Fatima was handed over to, paid ₦500000 as the dowry.

You can imagine that a wedding "Fatiha/Nikkai" that a President of a country attended (he is obviously up and about in Nigeria nowadays) and even played a prominent role in, would also have in attendance many more men of timber and caliber. Some of the bigwigs seen were the likes of the 2nd wealthiest man ever on Earth, Mr. Bill Gates, Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, Speaker of the House, Honourable Yakubu Dogara, too many Governors to count likes of Ganduje, Amosun, Obaseki, El Rufai, Masari, Ajimobi and many more, the Ooni of Ife led other royal fathers, we saw the Oba of Lagos, Oba Akiolu too, so also former MD of Access Bank, Aig AIG-Imokhuede, BUA Grp Chairman Samad Isiyaku Rabiu, Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, Minister for Solid Minerals, Dr. Kayode Fayemi, Minister for Power, Housing and Works, Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN,  Publisher of This Day Newspaper, Prince Nduka Obaigbena, national leader of the APC Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, former Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, former Head of State, General Abdusalami Abubakar and very many others.

So now that the most important part of the wedding ceremony is now over, it's the time for the awesome, unprecedented merriment to happen and that is set for next week, Saturday March 24, 2018 as all roads would lead to the Eko Hotel Victoria Island Lagos.

More after the break.



Hajia Bola Muinat Shagaya razzled-dazzled to no end all of Thursday at the 'low keyed' engagement ceremony of her 3rd son Oluseun Bakare to Oludamilola Osinbajo, the supremely beautiful 1st daughter of the current Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and his delightsome wife Dolapo aka Dolly, the granddaughter of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo and late Chief Mrs HID Awolowo.

Though the VP & his wife stood out admirably in their gorgeous red silk Aso Oke ensemble, renowned fashion icon of note that Hajia Shagaya is known to be, was no pushover at all on the style stake herself! Her beautiful, very well done make up was applied by her regular who she swears by at all times, the magician known and addressed as "Banke Meshida Lawal".

Talking about the BMPro MD, she seems to have slamdunked all comers when it comes to the make up business in the country, all those other names we used to hear about then, seem to have either gone or disappeared into oblivion! When it comes to the make artist to the top celebrities & stars worth their salt, only one major name comes to mind and easily too, that name is none other than "Banke Meshida Lawal of BMPro"!

Back to Hajia Bola Muinat Shagaya, her outfit to her son's engagement/traditional wedding was lush and beautiful in everyway you can imagine it! The purple & burgundy ensemble really matched the occasion, it wasn't vulgar in any way neither was it ostentatious, but the diamond set with Rubies that she wore on her neck, her earrings, her bangle and the totally "iced out wrist watch, really spoke volume in a supremely classy way and manner, even that humongous ring on her finger was "standout" no doubt. Her jewelry collections have always always drawn admiring glances and nods of approvals from the highly discerning. So this also wasn't a disappointment at all.

Obviously everything was carefully picked and assembled for maximum impact but not to deliberately upstage anyone. That she's a knowledgeable billionaire who understands fashion and style was obvious for all to see.

Today, Saturday March 17, 2018 is the "white wedding proper" and it is set for the 'National Christian Centre, Abuja', while the reception afterwards would be at the old banquet hall of the 'Presidential villa', everything still keeping to the theme of a low keyed event, but that the doesn't mean a few high powered Nigerians wouldn't be in attendance.

Immediately after this occasion is done and dusted, it's back to the drawing board again for the billionaire businesswoman, as her 4th son by name Kabir Shagaya is also getting set for his own wedding too, this time around from all indications, no stone would be left unturned to make sure it's a grand occasion, on a much larger scale than this more quiet one .

Hajia Maryam Abacha

Everything about this wedding points at the fact that it would be huge! What less can one expect from the households of the official Africa's Richest human alive, in the person of Alhaji Aliko Dangote and that of retired Inspector General of Police, M. D Abubakar.

So just as yesterday was the engagement ceremony of the Vice President's daughter Damilola, later that evening was the Kamu night for Fatima hosted by Fatima's paternal grandmother, Dr. Mariya Sanusi Dantata in Kano, yesterday, Thursday March 15, 2018.

The Kamu ceremony like we already tried to explain in the report for Idris and Fatima Abiola Ajimobi's wedding, It's a beautiful, fun but serious part of the events. We have thought to break down fully here the whole series of events that makes up the culturally rich Hausa, Fulani, Kanuri and Shuwa wedding.

For the Hausa,Fulani, Kanuri and Shuwa their very rich traditional wedding is well steeped in Islamic rites and must follow certain well laid down patterns and most often the entire series of events, spans a whole week. From the "Wedding Fatiha/Nikkai", which is the "most important" part of the whole proceedings and is actually the wedding itself, to the grand finale, "the Grand Reception" which is just the merriment, the party which seals everything altogether!

Part 1 is the "KAYAN ZANCE". This first part can only happen only after the wedding proposal has been accepted by the bride's family. Once the proposal is accepted, what follows is that the groom's family would gift or provide certain gifts, depending on the level of means or resources of the groom's family. The package for the bride would include household items, cookware, jewelry, underwear, beauty products, perfumes, shoes, fabrics, cash etc. If the groom's family are well positioned (rich enough) they might even provide a whole house as a gift to the bride. This is when you ll see the Louis Vuitton Bags and all sorts as gifts for the bride. The more affluent the groom's family are, the more upscale the level of gifts brought too.

Part 2 is known as "DAURIN AURE". In the series of events, this is the "Most Important" part of everything. This is the "Wedding Fatiha known also in the South as the Nikkai ". This part is attended strictly by men on both sides of the families only, where wedding vows are exchanged. It's a very "religious ceremony". Representatives from each side would exchange vows on behalf of the groom and bride in front of a religious leader and invited guests. In actual fact once this is done, the people are agreed and accepted to be married already.

Part 3 is known as "KAMUN AMARIYA". "Kamu' actually refers to or mean, "Catch the bride"! This is one of the oldest part of the whole ceremonies, which makes up the whole wedding. Here the groom's family (aunties, sisters, cousins) would come to negotiate with the friends of the bride, for her (bride) to be released to them. Since they have come for their "beloved bride", no price or amount can stop them from getting their bride, so name it, they are willing to "PAY"! Negotiation to come to an ideal agreement can last for as long as 30minutes and thereafter, it would be followed by a reception. After the negotiations have been concluded, as a sign of agreement a special perfume (turari) would be sprayed which signifies that all has been sorted out well. That's when the happy and fun reception can now proceed. In addition, the money from the negotiation is actually not taken by the bride or her family. It is shared amongst the friends of the bride!

Part 4 is known as the WUNI/SA LALLE. A very colourful part of the proceedings. Here only the women on both sides are involved, it is a "strict ladies only affair". With how stunning many of the Hausa, Fulani, Kanuri and Shuwa ladies are, this is one part when they all come out in torrents, like a beautiful waterfall in their nice amd very colourful Hollandaise outfits with their LALLE. At this occasion, the bride spends the last bit of her "Free Time", with the female members of her family and then later her various friends at her dad's house. Then Henna dye is used to do very intricate designs on the hands and feet of female family members and friends of the bride. But the "most beautiful, most stunning, most intricate and most intriguing of the designs" is for the bride herself, who is obvious centre of attraction. So has is standout. In every manner! WUNI itself actually means a form of like lounging/relaxing, so the bride enjoys loads of pampering while getting good advises from those aroumd her.

Part 5 is known as the "KAI AMARIYA'', not the KAMUN as above. This is like the last part of the whole ceremonies. This is when the family and friends  "escorts" the bride to her matrimonial home, where they would be well received by the groom's family. Depending on levels again, the groom's family would lead followed by the bride's. Here again series of prayers for the marriage, well being of the couple, their home, their future etc would pour endlessly, also advises from elders would follow too. Thereafter all these 5 major parts have been concluded, depending on the means, resources, wherewithal of the families involved, then a "Grand Reception", mother of all parties, with enough food, music and entertainment can now be done.

For Fatima and Jamil many major parts of the ceremonies have been concluded already, but it's still remaining the "GRAND RECEPTION" which is set for Lagos next week Saturday, March 24, 2018 at the Eko Hotel Victoria Island Lagos. Both are officially already husband and wife!

One of the August visitors at yesterday's event was none other than the wife of the late former Nigerian dictator- Gen. Sani Abacha in the person of Hajia Maryam Abacha.

If you don't have the invitation card to attend the grand reception, don't even venture trying to go there!

Mrs Dolapo Osinbajo & daughter

Oluseun & Damilola

Seun & Damilola with the VP & wife

Hajia Bola Muinat Shagaya, Seun, Damilola & Prince Shina Bakare

Our Vice President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and his delightsome wife, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo are sure very social media savvy and are fully abreast of the realities of the times, so Instagram, Twitter, Facebook etc are all nothing extraordinary to them. So before anyone would need to bend over backwards to get any news about their gorgeous daughter engagement today, Thursday, March 15, 2018, in Abuja both VP and wife themselves had released images of what went down on their different media platforms for all to see.

Like we had rightly predicted, it wasn't a loud loud throw out, as expected of the wedding featuring the children of both the incumbent Nigerian Vice President and that of billionaire businesswoman, Hajia Bola Muinat Shagaya. It was more of an elevated parlour affair! The engagement was at the Aguda House official residence of the VP and a follow up reception at the old banquet hall of the Presidential villa, where the wedding reception on Saturday would also take place.

If one can just quickly remember  that just in the last 2 weeks prior, the kids of serving Governors in Nigeria, just recently got married and Nigeria practically moved to the 2 locations of those events, so now the wedding of the first daughter and child of an influential Vice President at that to the son of a well known, highly connected lady! So the people expected that heaven should literally have come down to earth, but alas, it was devoid of the unnecessary fanfare and attendant paparazzi, but that didn't take away from the class and distinction of the event though.

Parents of the gorgeous bride wore a very lush red silky Aso Oke ensemble. The bride and the groom's traditional outfits as expected were stunning to say the least, the happy bride was all smiles all through, so also was the lucky bridegroom, who was enveloped by much air of confidence. Mother of the groom a renowned style icon in her own right looked stunning in her rich and lush purple outfit. All through the occasion, it was obvious that Damilola shares a deep bond with her parents. The wedding proper itself is set for Saturday, March 17, 2018 in Abuja. the FCT at the National Christian Centre.

So part one which is the engagement is done and dusted already, now it's the turn of part 2, which is the wedding proper, which is what we are awaiting with bated breaths and we know that for that, a host of men of God from around the country, in particular Pastor Enoch Adeboye would gather to make that occasion, stamped, sealed and delivered from heaven.

Congratulations on this one.

More exciting pictures after the break.

Derin & Xerona

Xerona Duke

Derin Phillips aka DJ Caise

The late Olori Oluwo Ambassador Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez

Whilst the weddings and marriage ceremonies of the minnows takes place in torrents without any whimper whatsoever, the fairytale nuptials of those of the rich and famous amongst us also takes place too at the same time, but with so much pomp and pageantry that continues to dazzle and titillates us wondrously.

This month of March of 2018 is especially standout as many top grade, first class, mouth opening, awe inspiring, gasp inducing nuptials have been happening and would continue till the month ends, and then those society foundation shaking weddings continue into April and throughout the year till the year ends. With the kind of wealth showcased and money obviously spent to put together these humongous parties, all the talks about a recession in the country, is most obviously a big lie, that's because things are still as vulgar and as ostentatious as they have always been!

Come April next month another superlative ceremony would take place when the stupendously beautiful, big eyed daughter of Mr. Donald Duke, who is a top adherent of the "Grail Movement" and a former 2 time Governor of Cross Rivers State and most possibly, a Presidential aspirant/candidate come 2019, by name Xerona, whose name actually means "God's Gift", would be walking the aisle, to be joined in holy matrimony to her handsome beau, the grandson of one of the richest Africans to have ever lived, in the person of the late "Apesin Ola of Egbaland", the "Garsan Fulani Kano", the "Olori Oluwo" (head of the occult) of the revered OC, the late "Olori Ogboni Agba" (the Supreme Ogboni Chief, the "Ambassador extraordinary and plenipotentiary", High Chief "Antonio Oladeinde Fernandez", the "Baron of Dudley, England", the "Grand officier de l'Ordre national du Leopard-Democratic Republic of Congo", "Commandeur de l'Ordre national du Merite du Gabon", "Grand officier de l'Ordre du Mono Togo",  just to mention a few of his revered titles.

The Dukes themselves are no push overs by any means, it's not just about Xerona's dad being a former 2 time Governor, they have solid pedigree behind them too, Xerona's paternal granddad-Henry Etim Duke, was the 2nd indigenous and one of the longest ever serving Controller General (then Chairman of the board) of the then Custom and Excise.

Derin Phillips aka DJ Caise's mom is Chief Fernandez's first daughter and first child, by name Chief Mrs Teju Phillips, the former Commissioner For Special Duties in the administration of ASIWAJU Bola Ahmed Tinubu, his dad is the gentleman Engineer Lanre Phillips.

So come Saturday, April 14, 2018 at a venue that would soon be disclosed, the whole world is expected to converge at that so called venue for the "traditional wedding" of the loved up couple from 2 important families across the waters, and the traditional wedding is expected to be both humongous and very colourful, with all the awesome display of the rich Efik/Kalabari culture and traditions of the dad/mom of the bride. Xerona's mom being the  equally very beautiful Onari Duke, a former 1st lady with intimidating status by herself (a successful legal practitioner, philanthropist and businesswoman, a non executive Director at UBA Plc) and from the royal and famous "Bob-Manuel family" from Rivers State. Efik/Kalabari would mix with that of the standout Yoruba culture and tradition of the groom's family on the day.

Thereafter the "traditional engagement/Wedding, would follow the white wedding proper, which is slated for the next Saturday, on April 24, 2018 to be more precise.

We are eagerly looking forward to cover the whole events.
