ABDULSALAM POPOOLA & MARYAM OLAJUMOKE BELGORE’S WEDDING- THE FINAL INSTALMENT





We had landed in Ilorin from Lagos, having a mindset already, thinking what could these people possibly do, that can wow us. So we weren’t expecting too much so as not to be disappointed. But truth be said, all that we saw swept us off out feet.  Ilorin, the Kwara State capital was filled that week with many dignitaries from far and near, the bride’s family took fantastic care of all of us and other guests who had also flown in from wherever. So it was like Eko for Show, Ilorin for substance. 





First night, we had a great Bride’s eve, first time we would encounter such on the scale we saw it, and next day was the Wolimat another very colorful event, though a lot more religious, it was still much fun to behold. Then was the cake of it, the NIKKAI Ceremony itself, which had the bride looking as if she just dropped in from heaven, looking ravishingly beautiful, first in her all white outfit, wearing silver shoes and carrying a silver bag and with those gorgeous jewelry that sparkled like thousand stars. She later on after the ceremony, changed into another beautiful lace outfit, which was another wonder to behold. Truly- Maryam Olajumoke Onikijipa now Belgore is a gorgeous lady.

Then on the fourth day, we all had to rest; a well deserved one at that.  The 4th day was Abdulsalam’s Wolimat and because he had lost his mom the previous day, it was more of a very quiet affair. 

The fifth day, which had been planned as the reception day, was to have been the icing on the cake.  But for the death of the groom’s mom, it should have been.  The groom and his wife, had to stay away from the last day’s merriment as a mark of respect for the dearly departed. But that didn’t in any way cloud the merriment at all.

On the bandstand was K1 the ultimate and like many know him to do, he was at his best, dishing it out like his life depended on it, and the appreciative guests got up to shake body and did as was expected of them, spraying money and more money he was ably supported by a deejay, who rocked the house to the delight of the younger crowd. The exquisite hall was like a picture from the Arabian Nights, it looked fantastic and created the air of magic, the wedding coordinator was Funke Bucknor-Obruthe and her staffs were professional to the core, the glorious looking hall that had everyone salivating was decorated by Zarahlinda. The cake was exquisite looking and was by Absolute Elegance, the couture cake bakers from Lagos. The event centre used was Romichs Event Centre, Gaa Budu, Offa Garage, Ilorin, Kwara State.

The day's event(reception)was chaired by Billionaire Business Owner of Sifax Grp. Barr. Taiwo Afolabi.  Check out the event in pictures.  Over 150 plus fantastic pictures for your viewing delight.

O ga. Ain't this too excessive? Kilode?

There's nothing Islamic about this wedding! Even the father Alfa Onikipa knows that the simplest of weddings gets Allah's blessings. Not the unnecessary spending. Allah loves those that are modest. Pls its all so unnecessary. I wish them lots of Barkah.

I dont see anythng unislamic about it.. We dont evn knw maybe they didnt spend as much as they have. To them it might just be a simple wedding. And I am guessing the bride is the first in her family so only normal to go all out and again children of nowadays want it all..i want somthing good for myself too o and my children so me I am begging God for such a grand event too. I wish them lots of Barka.

I feel good we can do this in islam as a muslim. This is an exmplary wedding. I am proud to show my christian friends this wedding makes me proud of my religion. What do we exactly want in islam..do we stil want 2 b in the dark? This people have made islam beautiful. It's unfair if someone says simplest weddings gets Allah's blessings,you are not Allah and you dont share the blessings. Great wedding! The walima is my fav. We have lost that in islam.
