KEMI ABAYOMI WEDS SHOLA OJORA: SO FINALLY THE DEED IS DONE

KEMI ABAYOMI
SHOLA OJORA

Today, Saturday, June 29, 2013 in the city of Lagos, at the City Hall venue more precisely on the Lagos Island in Nigeria. The duo of Adeshola  Ajibade Ojora, the first son of Lanre & the late Bade Ojora & his heartthrob of many years in the person of Kemi Abayomi 35, began the first installment of the nuptial ceremony. 

DETAILS AFTER THE BREAK. PLS CLICK ON READ MORE BELOW




We had inundated our readers with the tales about the upcoming wedding for more than a year now. After we gotten the inkling that one of the most eligible bachelors in Lagos was planning on solemnizing his relationship to his girlfriend of many years, who is based in Washington DC, where she's an auditor with the renowned KPMG, it was like everyone took an oath of secrecy and totally went about the preparation incognito. We had even predicted a spring wedding in February of this year-
http://maestromedia.blogspot.com/2013/02/spring-wedding-likely-for-shola-ojora.html  But even before then we had written about this same engagement in 2011- http://maestromedia.blogspot.com/2011/12/whats-truth-about-shola-ojoras.html

They did try keeping the information of today's engagement secret, much to the extent that when we heard, we were a bit skeptical and had to wait for the deed to be done. So today, in the heart of Lagos Island and at the City Mall, the couple had their traditional engagement ceremony, which some normally refers to as the traditional wedding. We heard the venue was filled to capacity and the colour of the day was Gold.

Shola is Lanre & late Bade's only son and he has 2 sisters, making them just 3 for their mom. Mrs. Lanre Ojora at a point was one of Lagos most prominent socialites, until she took a leave of absence at a particular point, some said that was predicated by ill health. 

The couple's white wedding is still upcoming we hear and very soon too. And from the gist we are hearing, it has been planned for Washington DC, in the United States of America (another destination wedding). We would do our best to update you all with more information about the engagement & the pictures as we get them

Like the Yorubas love to say ''E yin iyawo ko ni me ni oooo'' Meaning we would soon be hearing the joyful cries of a new born.

Finally! Congrats. Yorubas don't do traditional weddings Aloba.

Aproko said...

At long last... Wish them a happy married life with children and no aristo chic disturbing them! Amen.

Mrs Ojora HAD 2 daughters, it's just one left!

Mama Borngirl said...

comment was posted for you to correct the story.

I've seen the video clip, nothing beats a Yoruba trad wedding, fantastic wedding.

Kemi seems like a humble gal and Shola looked fulfilled.

HML to them.

congratulations egbon sholly! better late than never. wish you all the best, your home is blessed. amen.

Observer said...

And no jazz chic disturbing them, some ladies never move on even after a man marries. Amen!

XYZ said...

@observer, you are very very right! Silly girls. Wasting unnecessary energy on a man that has clearly moved on

@Mama Borngirl, where did you see the video clip?

While I am happy for both Shola and Kemi, I have to stay that Shola did a certain young lady wrong. He dated her for almost 2 years. Was still dating her when he got engaged to Kemi. The young lady almost lost it if not for her family and friends.

I do not have any ill feelings towards anyone and wish every single couple a HAPPY MARRIAGE (no divorce, no heartbreak) BUT we Nigerians must begin to hold our young men accountable for their actions. We must teach our sons respect and honor - do not lie to one woman (holding her heart and future hostage) when you know you fully intend to marry another. It just isn't fair. You too might have daughters someday and you wouldn't want someone to handle her heart, mind, & body badly.

@anon 5:48am, they are some girls out there, regardless of the signs and body language from the guy, they just refuse to let go!!! Especially if the guy is a dude and a good catch. I have seen too many examples. Everybody knew Shola and Kemi were an item. (I am sure this lady also knew) Shola has a choice to choose whoever he wants to marry! Thats life! It happens every where in the world. Better luck next time. If she likes, let her continue sleeping with him, hoping he would dump Kemi some day, thats her stupidity............

Anon July 3, 2013 at 5:48 AM; it's a two way thing. Women do it too.

Mama Borngirl said...

@anon 12.19am, I've some elders in my family who're close to Shola's family. It's not an official clip, the ones guests cover.

As per Shola dating a lady while engaged, it's no big deal! It's not new and will continue to occur... Men need to keep their sexuality and emotions active. Moreso, Kemi wasn't close by. Men know who they want as a wife and most times no good sex offered or whatever trick will fall for them.

As a mother I wish the lady sanity and her own husband. Also wish Shola and Kemi a happy marriage forever. Amen!

Dumped lady should move on, that's life.

Anonymous said...

abeg who is this person that was dating shola when THE WHOLE WORLD knew he was getting married to kemi? in fact she has herself to blame - and may another woman date her fiance if she ever gets engaged!
it better not be AA that i am suspecting

Aproko said...

Silly silly silly lady that dated Oga Shola knowing he's engaged. Thinking luck will smile on her and she'll be wife. Only a few women will try that bullshit and won't loose out.
Pls let's know her first name, so we know what makes her think she's more special than Kemi.

Aproko said...

It's not Ayo onirun, he never dated her! That one was just using body language plus Ile Ife jazz to win him over and it all didn't work!

Yetty said...

You know they always always think JAZZ would do the trick. Till they wake up and realize time has zoomed past them............No be by force abeg! The really desperate ones go ahead and have a kid! and still loose out. Dont get this logic at all. We should have self pride please. Guys like girls that have respect for themselves

itsekiri's finest said...

lets not taint this blogpost with nasty comments ladies. shola and kemi are officially married (at least in our custom). upward and onward we march on to the white wedding

i must to laff at the ile ife jazz comment. that one no be small jazz o haha

Me again said...

Shola was denying that he was dating Kemi for a long time, talk less of admitting he was engaged. So if the man himself, who you have feelings for tells you the stories are not true and continues to date you and you don't feel it's a secret relationship, why wouldn't you believe it.

It may seem stupid now, but abeg many women have been led on like this, so let's not act like "she should have known". Anyways to the led on girl, don't feel bad if you truly didn't know and he led you on. The same thing happened to Diezani a long time ago and look at her now. Move on and get your life. If you did know and tried to get over, well you won't be the first or the last one to do it, just don't cry foul.

Happy Married Life Shola. I hope marriage at a mature age makes a difference in your union and you know how to value, love and respect your wife even more.

I'm not the lady Shola dumped but I also dated Shola 2 years ago! 3 months into our gig, I heard he was engaged and I confronted him. He told me "Kemi is a girlfriend like I was and until he marries, anything can happen, even I can be wife". The Kemi gist became more prevalent than our relationship and I faded out of his life. My friends were like some manipulative behaviour from me could make him dump Kemi for me but hey I wasn't ready to gamble!!!

Shola is intelligent and will only do what he wants to do.

Ladies should note all info about their dates and just be themselves. No need running helter skelter.

Anonymous said...

Diezani what? Her wealth yes, her marriage? No comment. Look for a better example.
Kai, he openly let you know you were not the only one he was straffing? He has guts!

Gossip Police said...

@Shola's ex, manipulative behaviour like whaty? Asking your mother to go meent aunty Lanre for his hand in marriage? Faking a pregnancy? Trapping with a real pregnancy? Claiming to be his wife all over? Faking a good girl all thru?

Except the Lord builds a housen the labourer labours in vain...

I know this thread will get to Kemi and Shola.
Kemi, don't mind them all, welcome to Lagos! I trust you'll cope with all the embarrassing talks. And don't trust anyone as a friend, too many backstabbers here in Lagos.
HML dear and this time next year, we'll have your baby to play with.
To all Shola's exes, you sure enjoyed the s*x and gifts. Eyin abelejayan, ese, oruka ti do wo!

Ha said...

Hahaha.... dont kill me jare. Manipulative behavior means correct jazz. LWKMD. Ladies, Ladies, there are some guys that jazz does not work on them. No waste time biko.

Anonymous said...

Thank you @ Me Again.

Shola DENIED that he was dating anyone. The story he told her, and her people who cared to ask, was that he and Kemi dated, got engaged, almost made it to the altar, and then he changed his mind. He said that was a long time ago and that because of the family relationship (His family and Kemi's family; their friends -> hers to the Folwer girl and his to Abi's) everyone is still cool.


He did mention that he was under family pressure to do the right thing. When he got engaged - he was still calling her and trying to sell some story about family. We, the girls friends and family, just surrounded her with love and prayer, told her to just leave him alone (if he can't stand up to his family when it comes to such life changing situations, why does she think that she will enjoy any peace with him?), and focus. I tell you - having a very supportive and educated family is good. May we all enjoy such love and support.

Please ladies, lets stop making it seem like these type of things are solely the fault of the females. If we continue to sanction it, it is our daughters that will suffer.

Me? I am upset at what our men do our women. It really is not fair. If you know you can only marry people from the same socio-economic background as you, then please leave the daughters of families that don't have the kind of money and recognition that your family wants ALONE. SImple. If you really cannot control yourself the least you can do is level with them from the beginning so that if they decide to go forward they do so with both eyes open.

I wish him and Kemi well. I also pray that no one will treat their daughter (or son, because it happens to men too) with such coldness and disregard.

@Ha, correct. Gossip Police was just pulling her legs, she knows too well it means jazz!

Where's Gbogbo bigz girls???

Anonymous said...

@anon6:30am, all that one is story. Look, if a guy really wants to marry you, trust me he would convince every single member of his family and do it. Remember Shola is Aunty Lanre's only son. Guys tell women shit. So do women too. Besides, your friend and Shola were not meant to be. If God wanted that union, nobody can stop it, so move on. Tell your friend to get over it fast. Her OWN husband would come. Shola just had cold feet initially because he was scared of losing his freedom. That happens to guys a lot, so they play around, then come back to their senses. If your friend was smart enough, she would have decoded it.

Kemi's Friend said...

Anonymous, stop hurting... It's ok. Obviously Shola told those lies, all men lie even the even poor men! All your stories shows you're still hurting!
We thank God for your supportive and educated family, oya move on and next time don't fall for lies!
Or next time, be more manipulative, hahahaha.
Shola wanted Kemi for all reasons and to the best of my knowledge, it was Kemi who didn't like Shola treating her like thrash, hence the on and off engagement.
Once again, move on and stop feeling bad. Your hurt won't change the new status of Kemi and Shola.

Anonymous said...

Sowwie o, Shola's ex advocate, cry if you wanna. It's no new trend to be lied to, used and dumped. Better luck next time.

I wonder how many cry cry girls will come here to hurt when Kojo marries. That one even disgraces girls out of his life.

No one is saying it's the fault of the dumped lady, all we're saying is she should've been suspicious with the engagement tales and not hang on for the fame.

Why don't you just mention the lady's first name so we can offer emotional support!

#Going to call other Kemi's associates to follow this thread.

Anonymous said...

Bless you anon 8.40am and Kemi's friend, a man will only marry who he wants to marry. The other lady wasn't smart enough to decode the deceit from Shola.
Enuff of all these story story, take your story to God or else comments here will hurt you more.
HML Kemi and Shola.

Gossip Police said...

Yes, I was just pulling her legs, I know they meant serious jazz.

Deceptful is a word that describes Shola. During Kojo/Paula era, Shola would tell Paula she came at rite time, she's gentle and would make a good wife to Kojo. Then go tell Kojo Paula won't stand up for him in turbulence, that he needs a stronger personality, that Paula's uncles are opportunists who'll abuse the UN link. Same Shola that plays with Banke and condemns her with Ladi.

Kojo's gist will fill here when time comes, Kojo that their family occult have picked his wife for...

Women should have a 6th sense in all relationships. Too sweet a tongue self is suspicious.

Did I get it wrong... What family would ask a man if he's serious about their daughter and expect the man to say, I just wanna play her? Jokers!

It's good to hurt and better to move on fast. Lady hurt, best you stop commenting as people's response will hurt you more. And if you're not satisfied, in the words of Pastor Chris "go to BBC or CNN to air your complaints".

Anonymous said...

seriously was there a need to bring up kojo and paula here? abeg lets let that matter rest. it has been over thrashed online.

itsekiri's finest said...

sorry the last comment was by me: itsekiri's finest *wink wink*

and whoever made the comment about shola and family pressure is totally spot on! as much as i love egbon sholly, all of them in their clique have no backbone. what the family says, goes. in addition, i would expect them to also want to marry women from their class and status. they are very particular about that - awon boat club crew..

so ladies be forewarned, if you did not grow up with them from childhood, dont holiday with them in exotic locations and so on, NOTHING FOR YOU. find your level

the truth is bitter. i dont support and condone such myopic methods but it is the fact. this is why come hail or sun - maje will not marry toke even though he genuinely loves her

Gossip Police said...

Any matter can be used as reference especially if people mentioned know each other!

Who cares if Paula Kojo issue is over thrashed, once in the news, reference forever! If I need to make reference to them or anyone, I'll. Bite me!

As per social status, a real man will marry whoever he wishes and will bring her up to his status! Social strata nonsense... Check out current trend in British royalty to your fake Ogboni, witchcraft, ritualist, used up their children's good luck Lagos social strata.

itsekiri's finest said...

and gossip police please deceptful is no word for shola oh. mind yourself. charming, cultured, well traveled, a rake, respectful are words you can use to describe him, ok??? okay i will throw in childish and lily-livered for full disclosure purposes but he is not deceptful and actually has a kind soul.

bye for now. sorry for all my many comments o ejo ma bi nu

Gbogbo Bigz Girlz said...

Gossip police, used up children's goodluck and grandchildren's goodluck indeed! I can even list names of those who've donated their generation to fame. Awon ti won ti fi gba paro gbogbo! Who was aunty Lanre before her marriage that she won't let Shola marry anyone!

Make una siddon there dey form levels while lowest level people like GEJ and Fashola with insignificant parents overthrow your levels.

As per Paula, make all of una come back to curse...

Anonymous said...

LOL @ anon. Kojo got quietly married earlier this year! Keep up with the gist I beg. And not everyone turns to their parents for approval - Saraki and Balogun both married oyinbos.

@Gbogbo Bitz Girlz, Fashola comes from a very solid background oo. Well if you think collecting daddies paycheck and spending at Boat Club is your yardstick?...well them plenty with no shishi for their account. Please what work do they all do sef? You see them for ever hanging out at the cafes outside Harrods or just walking around Knightsbridge!.....Beats me

Anyways, its their life, who are we to judge

Kojo isn't married to Shanthi oh! It was a gimmick for some reasons, and Shanthi didn't want to let go. Kojo now hates her like shit. The ring she wears is fake. Quiet marriage should have evidence of dowry paying or legal wedding!
I'm Kojo's cousin from his mother's side so I know.

Kojo's cousin from his mother's side; welcome Banke!
Who was Lanre? She's from a good home. That her maiden name isn't popular doesn't mean she doesn't have some pedigree.
Who were you before the Benin people picked you up, Dunni? Nothing but an Eric Moore towers resident. Lower than all the people you mentioned.

Paula should've put to bed by now, saw her late last year and my "eagle eyes" saw pregnancy in her!

Dunni does not talk like GbogboBigzGirls! Get over it. What did dis Dunni do to you sef? So what if she stayed in Eric Moore Towers? Where did you grow up? Yes, you.......i'm talking to you. You are wicked sha. We are talking about Shola, wetin concern Dunni talk inside this matter. Abi Fred dump you too. Psycho!!!!!

I'm not Dunni, I just happen to know her and sincerely like her hence the defence at all times. Obviously, you're Dunni's frenemy to know her background so well. It's well with Dunni.

Ok back to the post.

Nigeria is not a society where women can come out the woodworks like they did with Tiger Woods. Especially if they're still single n hoping to get hitched. Unfortunately a lot of women looking for love fall for the lies. "Me again" is not lying. Most women especially if still single will be quiet n knowing him, he chose his prey well, some are good girls that were most likely not intune with society gist until it was too late, some well... I don't know, think he has a good heart or something. That being said, he is no tiger woods and is living on faded glory like even he likes to say. Not everyone is on top of gossip mags n fake lifestyles (yes, fake, but he's likeable n protected, thanks to his manipulation so no one will touch on his real worth). That being said to all those who have kinda come forward, to all those who can't or won't; oyinbo, "akata" n naija girls alike in their diff area codes n zips that were fed the same story; wish them well n move on. Thank God he cut your misery short, get TESTED, cuz u know he dipped raw with more lies, grown woman that u are, you still fell for it. Don't beat yourself up, be wiser. If your results are positive, thank God for a new start n move on. Believe that God loves you and saved you. Wish I could fast forward to a few years later for all the genuinely, naively broken hearts (even if u moved on, reading this blog must've made u re-visit), you will look back and laugh last. Do not be intimidated by anyone, Kemi's voltrons n other bullies, even fam. Everyone has been foolish before and fallen for lies (women n men alike), forgive yourself, forgive him (so your blessings can flow), wish them well and move on. Kemi is a true winner ;)

Anonymous said...

Chill, he wasn't necessarily lying. The media are the ones perpetrating long time girlfriend, because they've been together on and off and her friends keep feeding them information on her behalf. Remember some so called "close friends" of hers on this same blog even refering to her as Yemi her sister's name instead of Kemi n they swore they knew her? There are a lot of folks around him that have barely seen them together since they broke up years ago till Abi's wedding. They were off for a while until Abi started dating her cousin and they reconnected. Do not believe everything you read, he has dated other girls he genuinely cared about in-between, he was just very confused like a lot of Nigerian men. What fam wants, what he wants and what is expected of him, not a lot of men have enough back bone in this country to stand up to family, mainly because they're still very dependent. He keeps his relationships as private as possible, even when he reunited with Kemi, why do you think blogs can't even find a photo of them together to post. Doesn't mean he cared about his other relationships inbetween any less, she's the fam's choice and he was even more convinced when his bff Abi chose to marry her cousin, that seemed like a sign...

This debate is too long, i begee o! The lady who did not make it to the altar with him should thank her stars! It was obvious that such high class families do not base marriage on love alone. His mother must have preferred Kemi therefore he married her instead of the lady he was madly in live with.


That's how it works among the rich and famous. The loser should take heart, if your in-laws dislike you, they can make your life hell. His mum was called a merry widow anyway. What do you hope to gain marrying her son? Move on otherwise people may visualize you as a gold digger. I don't think there is much left there. Every disappointment is a blessing in disgice because your marriage to him may have been a disaster. Amen!!!

Best comment so far because the truth is bitter... Pls. find your level because in-laws may give you a hard time. The type of insults you may get could be worse than of TV soap Nectar as per, "omo ta ni?" Hahahahah!!! May that not be your portion in Jesus' name?
