BN Celebrity Weddings: Nigerian Musician/Actress Muma Gee celebrates her traditional wedding to Actor Prince Oluebube Eke

It is most definitely wedding season in Nigeria and our Nigerian celebrities are ensuring that they take full advantage of this season of love!

Actor Chinedu Ikedieze recently tied the knot while musician Nikki Laoye also said “I Do” a few weeks ago. Now, eclectic Nigerian artiste Muma Gee has sealed the deal with her love – Prince Eke.

Read the official post-wedding press release below and look out for the white wedding photos soon.

The ancient town of Odiabidi in Upata Kingdom, Ekpeye land of Ahoada East Local Government Area, Rivers State wore a festive look on Tuesday, December 20, 2011, as their daughter, Chief Gift Iyumame Uwame (Muma Gee) and her husband, Prince Oluebube Eke (Eklips) concluded the last lap of their Traditional Wedding ceremony.

Celebrations have been on in the town for a whole week prior to the final date. Various groups in the land had come out in their numbers to support their sister and daughter and on the night of the 19th, a host of local performing artistes converged at her family home for a series of musical and comic performances which lasted far into the night.

Muma who had stayed awake all night couldn’t resist picking up the microphone at a point to reel out some of her most loved numbers to the delight of the crowd. She didn’t retire to sleep until the wee hours of the morning of Tuesday, December 20, 2011.

When the day broke, the final arrangements were concluded but not early enough for the ceremony to kickoff at the advertised 10am. Canopies and seats were arranged on the playground of the State School in Odiabidi but it wasn’t until at about 12noon that the event got underway.
Muma looked radiant in a blue lace wrapper, an orange blouse with matching headgear and traditional bangles and beads. Her husband who had to hide away from public glare initially until the customary bridal search was concluded looked every inch a traditional prince in and ankle-length blue cassock with black pants, shoes and black Top hat.

A number of traditional dances and a spectacular acrobatic performance started off the ceremony on a high note. Then Muma flanked by a couple of her friends embarked on the customary search for her groom. She first got a glass of wine from her mother together with her blessings and after going round the ground finally found her husband half-hidden among his kinsmen and friends. There was general rejoicing at this point as she triumphantly led him out to her people.

The cutting of the cake followed. It was baked in the shape of a traditional cooking pot and the caterer explained it to represent the cooking prowess of the bride. That being done the dances followed then gifts were presented to the couple. They were so many that a truck was needed to transport it to the husband’s town, Umuota Umuhu, Ngor-Okpala LGA, Imo State.

When the ceremony was concluded in Odiabidi, buses and cars were immediately provided and the party moved over to Prince Eke’s hometown in Imo State. It took the best part of two hours to get to his home and it had become dark when the party got there.

But there wasn’t going to be much ceremony again as a party had been going on in that town long before the arrival of the couple and their troop. What happened was just that the family of the groom officially received the bride into their home.

This was a very important part of the ceremony and its briefness didn’t reduce its significance. The couple then retired for the night as their friends continued partying into the wee hours of the morning.

The White Wedding takes place on Friday, December 23, 2011 at the Recovery House in Port Harcourt.

    • Rele December 25, 2011 at 5:43 PM

      In your face Chioma Chukwuka!! For your crass taunting of Muma Gee about her single status during GUS celebrity editon. It’s unfortunate that you never can tell the size of a person’s brain (pea-sized) until they open their mouths. Anyway Muma, you deserve every happiness with your prince charming. P.S. is there a factory where they’re churning out eligible princes? Suddenly celebs are getting hitched to royalty. Help a single sister o abeg!

      • damola January 15, 2012 at 12:02 AM

      I thank God for Muma Gee. I thank God for wiping her tears and shaming all those who said it wouldn’t happen for her. I had been in her shoes, I had friends using marriage to laugh at me but today, I am going on to my second year in marriage with a child on the way at age 37. I have a husband that God custom made for me and with everyday I thank God that it happened for me when it did and not one minute before. Muma Gee, continue to lean on the Lord and place your marriage squarely in the palm of His hand and He will continue to grow, bless and increase in IJN, AMEN!
