Paris and the Parisians had a feel of what moneyed Africans can make happen over the weekend, when the super well to do Anumudu clan stormed the stylish and romantic and sophisticatedly stylish city with their friends for the wedding of one of their sons by name 'Enyinna Obinna Anumudu' to celebrity make up artist to the stars and celebs by name 'Joyce Ifeoma Jacob'.

What happened in Paris, France was the final installment of a ceremony that had begun in Nigeria many months back. There was the introduction and then the gorgeous but understated "traditional wedding" known as "igba nkwu" which is a must for the Ibos, if a marriage would be stamped and approved. In fact for the Ibos no matter what. The igba nkwu-the ibo traditional wedding ceremony suffices far above any other type of ceremonies, be it court or church wedding for the Ibos of South-East Nigeria. The Anumudu and Jacob kids had had a quiet, more subdued registry wedding earlier in the year and because of how quiet that ceremony was against all expectations, many were misdirected to think the massive society wedding they had envisaged and were eagerly awaiting was not/never going to happen again.

But we knew from the get go, that instead of a "mother of all society weddings" in Lagos or the East  that many were expecting & were preparing to storm at all cost, that it was rather going to be a more refined, quite classic 'destination wedding' in Paris, France at least as that was what the bride had told us several months ago then, when we had a chance encounter with her at a fashion house on the Island. And so after several months of waiting, the classy, thoroughly stylish white wedding took place over the weekend, Saturday June 22, 2019 to be more precise. And the venue of choice in beautiful Paris, for the white wedding was the American Church in Paris and the reception was at none other than the super prestigious 'Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris, France'.

We wouldn't or in fact couldn't  stop reiterating the fact that it was a classy affair by all standards, by every standards one can judge it by. Venue is already well appointed, so the addition that was added took it many notch up in terms of the flower arrangement. Or what else could one have even expected as the Anumudu's, the owners of Globe Motors amongst several major investments are known to be super liquid and therefore could literally make magic happen without any stress or whimper. 'Uncle Willie' like the family patriarch is referred to, that's talking about 'William Anumudu' had invested very well over the years and his family are enjoying the fruit of those early well placed investments now. Uncle Willie's 'stupendously stylish wife' on the other han, aa fantastic personality of you know her, is known to dictate to the Nigerian fashion scene with much aplomb & elegant finesse. So fashion-forward is 'Nkiru Anumudu' that some of her ensemble, are as they are just getting released from the factory of the brands that made them. She is even reputed to wear some things just before they come out or are released. Nkiru in fact as we know, is on first name basis and speed dial with the likes of "Stefano Gabanna and Domenico Dolce", the duo owners of Dolce & Gabanna, one of the world's most iconic fashion labels. She in fact is called by the duo to have a 1st glimpse/peek & pick of their collection before it becomes public view.

Nkiru, the mother of the groom-Enyinna is ascribed as one of Nigeria's most stylish ladies and her only daughter Ozinna, who has gotten a flair from her mom and is a sibling of the groom, is in fact also a super stylish young lady, in fact she's rated as one of the most stylish and fashion forward young Nigerian & African around presently.

Had it not been that the white wedding was held in Paris, it most probably could have been one of the biggest and most stylish weddings of the season in Nigeria by all standards. Though it didn't hold in Lagos, those who were privileged to attend the Paris function, ably represented super well with sizzle and pomp on the style stake too. The Paris location, in fact must have restricted the number of guests that made the wedding to what it was, and that's chiefly because it's not that easy to get EU/Shenghen visa. Even at that, many still attended to support their friends-The Anumudus and Jacob.

The ever in your face mother of the groom, killed it with her #MaisonValentino badass outfit that she crowned with her usual stand out fascinator, this one was by Piers Atkinson, reputed to be one of the best in the market, who equally acknowledged his client. Nkiru's only daughter Ozinna, razzled-dazzled in no small measure in a florescent green show boating outfit made for her and called the "Ozinna dress" by the incredible magician of note known to all as Mai Atafo. Elizabeth Elohor, the high class event engineer and model finder, dazzled in a 'Biyan Official' outfit that she perfectly accessorized. Former 1st daughter of Oyo State didn't come to Paris to play at all as she nearly upstaged all comers in her 'Zuhair Murad' perfecty embellished awesome outfit, that dazzled and dazzled. That dress couldn't have been less than $5000 maybe close to $8000. Now that Abisola Kolapo-Daisi's dad is no more in power as Governor, at least she's now allowed to do her thing without restraint whatsoever. The Editor of 'This Day Style' Ruth Osime, "a fashion graduate from a UK institution was the stupendously gorgeous, elegant peacock in her classy outfit by 'Maison Artc' or better still 'Artc Piece of Mind of Morocco' that stood her out for all to see and applaud. The fashion house is noted for her one of a kind piece they make. Ruth was a perfect supremely elegant and sophisticated Countess Dracula, but in the most gorgeous form possible. Many that understands high fashion would most definitely bow in recognition. Vivian Chioloji-Shittu known to all as a "style maven unparalled", didn't disappoint at all too in her outfit a combo of DG first line and another brand and and she came along with the best arm candy ever, her gorgeous daughter Kamsy Shittu.

Chioma Ikokwu looked every inch a bride in the making as she dazzled to no end in her golden yellow or sunflower yellow silk outfit. We nearly mistook OG Okonkwo of Style Temple as the bride in her stunning, sumptuously sexy white outfit. Jennifer Obayuwana the ED of Polo Ltd, who we have always said without mincing words is a fashion star of high repute, she came expectedly looking badass in her 'Alessandra Rich' sexy outfit which she combines with her 'Amina Muaddi' shoes with the hat and attitude to carry it all with unrepenting panache. She came with her style lord of a dad, Sir John Obayuwana.

Is it possible to say that Rita Dominic is Nollywood's most stylish thespian or it's still a straight battle between Rita and Genevieve for the queen of style? For this wedding Rita's bubble gum pink ensemble was outstanding as one would have expected and that her afro fits her so beautifully.

It was a powerful wedding all the way, with not a few certified billionaires in attendance likes of the wealthiest African man in the world, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, Geregu Power boss Femi Otedola who we all now call 'Mr. Tom Ford', just for his love of that fashion brand. Also there quite casual and suave was the UBA Group's chairman Tony Elumelu, so also was big time maritime investor Musa Danjuma, reputed to own the 2nd biggest property in Parkview, Ikoyi, also was Tayo Ayeni of Skymit whose stupendously intimidating edifice in Parkview, Ikoyi is note worthy, in that billionaire category is also Sir John Obayuwana, we saw Collins Chikeluba, Maison Fahrenheit's Anselm Tabansi. We also saw ace thespian and in fact one of the most awarded one and  humanitarian, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, Grace Osime, even the Governor of Imo state, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha was in attendance to support his good friend, Willie, so also was Ego Boyo. Many came to show support, on fact some even came and left for another event happening same day but in London, which was a party to celebrate Kemi Ibru's birthday. One of those visibly missed was Mo Abudu whooay probably is putting finishing touches to her daughter's upcoming California wedding.

To tell you all that those that came for the wedding had the best of fun would have been understating it, imagine that the guests partied at the Four Seasons Hotel George V reception venue till at least 3am!!!!!!!

The colorful wedding itself was tagged #enjoy1819. See the numerous, but quite beautiful pictures here.

Mr Aloba abeg free the comment section ooooo! Let people comment freely and POST the comments. That’s that.


Meanwhile there is something I have discovered, 🤔money does not equal class or mean that you belong to a certain group of creme de la creme. Food for thought. Ruth osime’s ensemble reminds me of Henry the 8th and men of that medieval era and how they dress, mother of the groom looks like an iya aje (Witch) scary as hell. Where are the bride’s parents, her cousins, siblings etc, why do u people only focus on the side you know. Abi she fell from the sky???

So...upon all the noise that you people make, this is Nigeria's "creme de la creme" at their "finest"?! 🤔
Busted weaves, wrinkled tablecloths, clown make-up, unflattering outfits etc?!🤐🤐

You forgot to mention Adenike Oshinowo, her twins were the ring bearer and flower girl. Clearly she has found a new sponsor because her money seems longer than normal now. We all lodged at the Crillion.

You are on to something. Sorry o, but Igbo people generally don’t know how to package themselves for events. It is not about money...MOG may have been wearing a $10k ensemble but it is simply strange looking and this is for her son’s big day. I have seen her in far better outfits with her unique hats, but she missed this one by miles. Osime and co, Jesus, wtf? Scary!

No traditional wedding, then?

Anonymous said...

It’s nice that the billionaires honored the invitation and SHOWED UP! I love how most of them played with colors and dressed up for the occasion, it doesn’t come off as “we must ooze class”, it’s a bit natural & just lovely; unlike the nonsense that razzite of a Uche with her half-baked accent did for a wedding, everything was “by-force”, I must be overly sexy, I must show, just smelling of “I-musto-belong” , not everything is butt implants and blue eye! CLASS DOES NOT STRUGGLE, CLASS DOESN'T EVEN TRY, CLASS JUST IS!

That said, congrats to the couple and I love the bride for not overdoing anything, easy does it man!

Enjoy your home, kiddos!

She’s a make up artist right? Is it that she couldn’t do the best make up for herself?

Congrats. That’s all.

Blair Witch, we understand who money didn't let into that circle. Mother of groom has always been like that, your namesake. She's even added weight and looks better.

Aloba it's true when it comes to couple, kindly look for the not famous side to hype as well. Se gbo?

Mehn!!! aside from Rita, Omotola, Elohor, and perhaps the bride herself everyone single woman above looks scary and ugly with makeup, so I can’t imagine them without makeup. Wow! How can this happen? The ugliest being the Abisola Daisi girl. She is mean spirited as a person and ugly physically even with all the work she has had done. This is just really weird. Or is it the photographer? It all looks tacky and strange. How can someone who claims to be a stylist wear a full length red balloon dress and balance it with a small cap? Makes her look like an abomination or like the guy with the tiny head in Adam’s Family. If it was a short dress, maybe. They all look like clowns from cirque du soleil. Perhaps that was the theme of the wedding...’cos it sure looks like a French royal court circus show.

Chioma should go see Vi-CS to teach her how to be mistress for years to a married man. She's not learnt the tricks of the game.

Elohor still lives in Lagos. She looks bloated here.

You can't use Jesus in the same sentence you advised her to drink sniper.

Ruth Osime looks beyond hideous if you want to hear the truth and for someone who claims to be at the forefront of fashion, she not only looks hideous, she also looks tasteless!

This is an eyesore for those who happen to be creme de la creme of the society, with all the 'Òsuká' they called fascinators, their 'igbabonerimi' styles and extremely hideous makeup!
