|Abisola & her maids|
|YINKA & his men|
|Cutting the beautiful cake|
|The gorgeous wedding gown|
This massive do by all standards would be on the front burner and in the minds of all for a very longtime to come. We stress again that, it is probably the biggest wedding of the season bar none. The only way the Dangote's do might have been bigger might just be by virtue of the sheer amount of money expended or maybe the caliber of bigwigs that attended, but apart from the 2 things already mentioned, everything else pales into insignificance in comparison as this is probably the standard by which other ceremonies would be judged or measured for times to come!
There was no stiffness of any kind at this wedding. It is what you can classify as the highest scale of Owanbe.
The Afolabi's led by the head of the clan, Dr. Taiwo Afolabi, who is the gentleman Billionaire Executive Vice chairman of Sifax Group a major Nigerian conglomerate, with diversitfied investments in many areas and also the Executive director at SAHCOL who is also the owner of that 5 star Hotel set to be opened in GRA, Ikeja soon before the year ends by name the Marriot and the Omisade's, that's the family of the stupendously gorgeous Bride-Abisola led by her dad-Prince Omisade both went over and above to make the ceremonies one to remember.
The entertainment was top notch all the way. KSA that's King Sunny Ade of the universe had been on the bandstand in IBADAN for the traditional wedding, which was much hosted by the bride's family at the Jogor Center, Ibadan, Oyo State. If that was a fantastic event, the Lagos event topped it by many miles.
Entertainment was provided majorly by the Shuga Band led by the ever impressive Akiin Shuga. He was supported by the a plethora of top reigning musicians from Mayorkun who broke the ice to Reekado Banks to LAX and to the King of them all 2baba who nearly brought down the roof with his awesome performance. 2baba got the whole crowd involved as it became some sort of sing-along and the young crowd bombarded the stage as the couple and 2baba had crazy fun!
The day's very reliable MC, was none other than the very functional Tee A, who controlled proceedings very very well.
The provisions made for the guests were outstanding in all ramifications. There was the overabundance of foods of all types-we cannot just name it all, it was over available and it flowed generously all through the event. Champagne was like water, not to talk of brandy, be it XO or VSOP and other types of liquor and things. It was obvious that good money was well spent. Infact some even exclaimed that it was a trailer load of drinks of all types. Desserts was aplenty, from ice-cream to cakes of all types. Not to talk of grills of all types and even burger etc.
People were served at all times and the choices were staggering.
The guests list was diverse. Royal fathers likes of Ooni of Ife, HIM Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi, Emperor of Greater Iwo, Emir/Oba Abdulrosheed Akanbi, Elegushi of Ikateland and environs, Oba Alaiyeluwa Saheed Ademola Elegushi, Oluwu of Owu Egba, Oba Adegboyega Dosunmu and many others, top businessmen and women likes of Tunde Ayeni, Bisi Onasanya, and very many others. Those in the entertainment industry, likes of Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Desmond Elliot, Monalisa, Susan Peters and very many others. Top Government officials, we say Governor Ibikunle Amosun and his gorgeous wife, we also saw Hon. Femi Gbajabiamila and loads very many others too numerous to mention.
It was a sea of gorgeous styles of Aso-Ebi. Mennnnnn, come and see babes!! ! All colours, all shapes, all heights, all styles, all kinds. Bisola's friends came in torrents. Some of the styles worn by many of the ladies would wake up the body of an avowed eunuch, mennnn they were bold and in your face.
Harbour Point was totally packed out. Elizabeth R owned by Ibidun Ajayi was in charge and she did a great job. Bonix drinks, RL Desserts, Jollof Plus so many others truly delivered.
By the time we were leaving the venue, which was at about 10:30pm another epic party of the most awesome kind and dimension had just begun, which was the humongous after party. Imagine that the permanent building in the Harbour Point compound was totally, we mean totally transformed into a super classy nightclub/upscale lounge!!!
There couldn't have been less than a thousand people in that place. Music was E.P.I.C, it was another round of party altogether again, with everything well provided. When we say everything, we say that very well and emphatically! The earliest any would have left that lit party would have been about 3am.
All in all, the party delivered. Lest we forgot, gifts of all type and shapes practically rained down. You need to see gifts that individuals packed home, from coolers to umbrellas to sacks of Garri to vegetable oil to packs of salts to sets of frying pans to set of bowls m, to sets of plates to too many things too numerous to just mention, imagine electric stoves and more.
Mennnnnnn!!!!!!! ...... .....
