Before today's ceremony, Koko who had being away abroad for a while, and had come back into the country to prepare for her glorious day had been observing the traditional wedding rites has dictated by her custom. For a whole week, she had been in seclusion in the very famous 'Fattening room', that the 'Calabarians' are known for. The Efik according to their time honoured tradition, sends their daughters to the fattening room to be pampered preparatory to getting wedded. Koko was in the fattening room for a whole week, away from everyone except those taking care of her, she only comes out in the evenings to dance.
For today's event anyway, the color of the day is Coral & Turquoise, so we expect that by the time the pictures starts flowing in, it's going to be a sea of Coral & Turquoise as worn by the guests. Knowing fully well that Mma Bakassi is a well respected politician & business woman, who is one of Nigeria's top movers & shakers this day's wedding, is most definitely going to be star-studded one. We expect the likes of Genevieve Nnaji, Rita Waturocha Dominic, Ini Edo, Chidi Mokeme, Shan George,Kate Henshaw, Susan Peters and the likes to be in attendance.
The white wedding, from all the indications we have gotten is going to be one of the biggest celebrity events of 2014, and it is upcoming in a few days time, Saturday, September 20, 2014 to be more precise. And like you all already know, the venue is The Main Hall of the Eko Hotel & Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos.
Colour of the day is quite exotic- shades of magenta!!! Expect the event to be a super luxurious carnival of style & fashion, music & entertainment with high powered guests (made up of several Governors, many Government officials, ambassadors, other guests from all the corners of the world. Mma Bakassi is known to throw some of the best parties in town, and this her daughter's wedding, would be a statement making one no doubt. Madam prior to now, had gone abroad to prepare for this occasion, known as an unrepentant fashionista she would most definitely be a cynosure of all eyes in her various outfits.
