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 .
