People get married all the time and to be honest, weddings are as random as pure water. But when a celebrity gets married in this part of the world, asides from the other celebrity sightings and the whole glitz and glam, the whole owambe something is taken up a notch.
And that is why we cannot help but countdown to the most memorable celebrity unions this year has witnessed. ?
Ubi Franklin and Lilian Esoro
After a back and forth that can make NEPA jealous, the two lovebirds eventually decided to put their differences and
Emma Nyra behind them.
Sending out wedding invites that was definitely something like we had never seen, Lilian and Ubi tied the knot in one of the biggest celebrity weddings this year witnessed.
From a traditional wedding that shut down the mainland and a church wedding that lit up the Island, these two landed themselves on this list without much effort.
Dolapo Oni and Gbite Sijuade
TV princess Dolapo Oni became a real life-Princess when she walked down the aisle with her beau Gbite Sijuade in October. The former Moments With Mo co-host literally shut down social media on her wedding day.
With high profiled guests and a white wedding which eventually happened in the UK, Dolapo and her husband definitely showed everyone why the Yorubas still remain the Kings of parties in this part of the world.
Damilola Adegbite and Chris Attoh
These two Tinsel town hotties met on the set of one of Africa’s biggest soaps and even though there were different rumours trailing their relationship for years, after an obvious bun in the oven, we knew Chris don’t play. And you know what they say about putting a ring on it if you like it?
Well, Chris showed he agreed with Beyonce when he popped the question in the most romantic way and made the Before 30 actress his Mrs in a low-key wedding early this year, months before her 30th birthday.
Definitely got that woman on lockdown before 30.
Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro
After gossip site Linda Ikeji broke the news of these two hooking up to the world, eyes were definitely set on them. The two hotties who are hands down one of the hottest couples in the business did not only have one of the biggest weddings this year, they also had people wondering what a “Thank You For Coming” party meant.
But with Gbenro’s dreads gone, giving way to a whole new mature and more handsome Gbenro and Osas seemingly loving every moment of the new Mrs status, their fans could not help but fall in love with every single thing about these people.
Tosyn Bucknor and Aurelien Boyer
YoruFrench would probably have induced a what-does-that-mean look from you before now, but after Radio Queen Tosyn Bucknor married her French husband, Aurelien Boyer and Instagram went ablaze with the hashtag YoruFrench, we knew Tosyn had succeeded in adding another word to the Naija urban dictionary.
And we also know we cannot wait for their babies.
After months of keeping Mr X behind the scenes, Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh eventually unveiled and married her lover in a ceremony that caught a lot of people off guard.
But you know when it’s Tonto, you kinda have to be interested because you know, it’s Tonto.
And so, she trended via all social media platforms, got everyone talking and actually got the world’s attention without singing.
Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and Cynthia Obianodo
When Ebuka decided to settle down, he kinda broke a lot of women’s hearts. But still, his traditional wedding still caused a stir and you know got a lot of notable names in attendance.
The wedding which happened in Anambra did not go unnoticed and stands tall in one of the most unforgettable celebrity unions this year.
Mofe Duncan and Jessica Kakkad
Mofe Duncan’s fans once complained that they could not keep up with his boos but when the handsome Nollywood starlet was ready to commit, he wasted no time doing it.
The Actor married his lady love Jessica Kakkad earlier this year in Lagos and if the photos and celebrity feedback was to go by, it was “turnt”.
Mimi Orjiekwe and Charles Billion
They might not be your regular Nollywood couple but when these two said their “I Dos” they had not one or two but a lot of their famous colleagues in attendance.
With a traditional wedding that shut down Enugu, Mimi and Charles certainly did have one wedding their guests will not forget in a long time.
IK Ogbonna and Sonia Morales
Their skin tone is just one of the many things these two have in common. The Nollywood Actor and his wife definitely were unapologetic about how they chose to start their family and when they decided to exchange their vows.
And that is probably why they are such an unforgettable pair and the reason they landed on this list.
There you have it, who did we miss?
