All the exciting details and informations, about the wedding that might stand shoulder to shoulder, neck and neck with the sheer opulence, extravagance and clout that was displayed at the AMOSUN weds Dabiri wedding.
The man with awesome clout in the person of the current Senate President of Nigeria, in the person of Dr. Olusola Saraki would pull his weight as he would host the world at his 1st daughter’s wedding of the year.
All things being equal, the State known to all as the “State of Aquatic Excellence”, but more famously known as Lagos, Nigeria’s undisputable economic hub and the richest state in the country by far, would host some of the heaviest of heavyweights by any yardstick of measurement, the movers and shakers of the society, the pillars of the Lagos establishments and more, top government functionaries and officials, both from the states and the Federal Government and National Assembly (Senate and House of Representatives), political juggernauts from all sides of the divide, be it from thr APC, PDP, APGA etc, top business people (men and women) of life, the diplomatic community, both local and international, all would converge to make sure that this is the season’s champion.
This most definitely would be the “Primera Liga” of all weddings in Nigeria this season without any iota of doubt and baring none. If the former despot Babangida, could pull his weight considerably, if Amosun and Dabiri could mesmerise all comers, then this one would be the king or emperor of weight pulling.
We had announced this wedding previously before on this your soar away platform, that was a few weeks back and told you how it was upcoming and that a leg of it was being planned as a “destination wedding”. But that part has since been jettisoned and it is now a full NIGERIA affair, why take our money and the ensuing razzmatazz to another country that’s not ours? This is the wedding that will say to all others and would tell them all brazenly, “Elojokoje”, meaning all others go sit down quietly without any iota of whimper whatsoever, in pidgin English ” go Siddon dey look”.
More exciting details after the break.
What else can one expect when the person getting married, is none other than the quiet and brilliant first daughter (the Saraki’s kids are 4 in number) of the 3rd most powerful and influential Nigerian leader in the person of the Senate President, Dr. Olubukola Saraki. That Saraki is a colossus all by himself is just stating the most obvious. He is first and foremost a trained medical doctor who had done well for himself, he was a Director of one of Nigeria’s former biggest banks, Societe Generale, where his family held the controlling shares. His late dad, in the person of Oloye ‘Dr’ Olusola Saraki was the former godfather of politics in Kwara State. He was the then indefatigable kingmaker of the highest order in that state, when he sneezed then, all others caught cold, so absolute was his control that whereever he leaned, was where all too would immediately. Senator Bukola Saraki, was a 2-time Governor of Kwara State. A power broker of the highest kind, who is the current Senate President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria. His wife, the gorgeous, the stylish, the impressive “Toyin Saraki nee Ojora” is the only daughter born to his royal highness, Otunba Adekunle Ojora, a bona fide Prince of Lagos and his elegant and adorable wife, Erelu Ojuolape Ojora.
Otunba and Erelu are major pillars extraordinaire of the Lagos social establishment.
Otunba Adekunle Ojora is from the royal lineage in Lagos, from the Adele Ajosun line and one of those who has very strong claim to the revered title and stool of the Oba of Lagos, being one of the most respected member and leader of the original landowners of Lagos (some have even claimed that if not for politics, he should have been the one on the revered stool now).
So imagine the pedigree of Oluwatosin, who is the gorgeous bride to be, having parents on both sides (paternal and maternal) who are no pushovers at all. Infact the maternal grand-dad sits atop the boards of many blue-chip companies, as Chairman or Director.
Tosin and her beau, “Adeniyi Olatunde Olukoya, the son of Omooba Tokunbo Olukoya”, would most definitely have a fairy tale wedding of the highest kind.
Schedule of Events and Venue. The humongous series of events and ceremonies would hold in Ilorin, Kwara State, Lagos, Lagos State and grand finale is set for Abuja, the FCT.
INTRODUCTION CEREMONY IN ILORIN.
This weekend “Saturday, October 21, 2017” would begin the proceedings, with the humongous “Introduction Ceremony”, which is set for the bride’s home town of Ilorin in Kwara State. Though information about it is still a bit sketchy, knowing the pedigree of the Sarakis, this event would most likely be a mini carnival, but a first class carnival at that.
THE TRADITIONAL ENGAGEMENT IN LAGOS.
Next weekend, “Saturday, October 28, 2017” is the D-Day for the “Traditional Engagement Ceremony”, which is set for Lagos and would be hosted at the “Eko Hotel Expansive Hall, in Victoria Island, Lagos”. Those to go the island on that day, should expect the mother of all traffic, as the Eko Hotel would be the place of convergence for most of the titans, the colossi, the young Turks and top celebrities and stars in Nigeria.
THE WEDDING PROPER IN ABUJA.
This part of the many days event, that has spanned Ilorin, Lagos would climax in Abuja, the FCT with the grand-finale. The most favoured venue for the reception is the “International Conference Centre, Abuja” better known as the “ICC”. Same spot that hosted the humongous wedding of the adopted daughter of former President Goodluck Jonathan years back and the spot that has played host to many a massive event of this kind of caliber. This part of the occasion is planned for from Thursday, December 7th till the Saturday, December 9th, 2017. But in between one of the eventa is also set to happen at the Yar Adua Centre in Abuja also.
We expect the best of the best entertainment to grace all of the occasions. We are sure that “KSA, the King of Juju music” himself would most likely be a major feature amongst those that would entertain guests and all.
While Tosin is a staff of Unilever, where she’s a “brand builder” , not very much is known about her beau Adeniyi, apart from the fact that he is from Ogun State.
What we can tell you for sure now as we speak is that at least 5 events company are set to handle affairs for the ceremonies, 3 of the very likely ones from all indications except things would change are “Eventful, owned by Mrs. Yewande Zaccheaus”, who we hear is the “chief planner/organiser”, then there’s the perennial favourite of all, which is “Zaphairre, owned by the ever bubbly Funke Bucknor- Obruthe” and then another brand that is likely to handle things one way or the other is “Newton & David, owned by the lady with class and panache, Mrs. Uche Majekodunmi.
This wedding like we have continually reiterated would most likely be the Wedding of the season.
