WEDDINGS – Super Eagle Yakubu Aiyegbeni + Nomoreloss & Phoenix Child



Hi Y’all,

How is your week going? My week has been soooo busy. I have so much to do! Who is attending the ThisDay ‘Africa Rising’ Festival in Lagos on Sunday? Lemme know.
Anyways, check out some wedding photos below.
Its from the weddings of Super Eagles/Everton striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni to his girlfriend and then Musician, Nomoreloss’ wedding to his girlfriend, Rhythm 93.7 radio DJ, Phoenix Child.
Yakubu & Yvonne

Super Eagles and Everton striker, Yakubu Aiyegbeni married Yvonne Lameen Ikhana last week.
“When I wake up everyday, I look at her face and she makes me happy. I go for training and play my matches with happiness in my heart. That is the motivation that makes me perform well. She often tells me: ‘Just go there and play well and score for me.’ That gives me more confidence and belief in myself,” Yakubu said after the marriage ceremony. Eagles’ striker and Yakubu’s team-mate at Everton, Victor Anichebe, was the Best Man at the historic wedding ceremony that Captain Nwankwo Kanu and his wife, Amarachi also attended.
Kanu praised Yakubu’s decision to ‘settle down’ and urged the couple to show love and commitment to their marriage vows.
Retired skipper of the Eagles, Austin ‘Jay Jay’ Okocha took time out to felicitate with Yakubu and Yvonne.
“It’s good that Yakubu is married now. I wish him and his wife a happy married life,” Okocha said.

Nomoreloss & Phoenix Child

Congrats to the Nomoreloss (Muyiwa Osinuga) and Phoenix Child (Adeola Ogunrinola).

All the best to both couples.

Ciao!!!!! Oh its my darlin, Molly’s birthday today! Happy Birthday luv!

    Did she wear a pink wedding dress in 9ja…Yippie! There is hope for my friend , whose mother-in-law asked her to take her “off-white kinda gold” dress back for something very white.

    Congrats to the happy couples :).

    First time of me see-ing gele tied on someone’s head with the bang left out in front. It just doesn’t look right. She shouldn’t have left it out. Also wasn’t feeling the pink wedding dress. I guess she wants to be different from everyone else. But sometimes being over creative doesn’t work out . . . .

    err hun you DO know that because a woman is married to a footballer does not confer on her victoria beckham status right?
    na yam,please let us be trying to be chilling when we passing comments ehn…the comparison is too far fetched.
    nkechi looks nice but NOTHING compared to victoria in the styles stakes–i can pick TEN other random “society girls/women” AT THE DROP OF A DIME WHO WILL FLOOR HER(NKECHI)IN THE STYLES STAKES.

    For me, both brides look beautiful! Phoenix expressed her individuality with a pink dress, it might not have been everyone’s pick but as long as she and her husband were happy with it. Tht’s what important. Besides, there have been stunning brides with effed marriages. I pray that God blesses both their marriages AMEN

    Yeah as per the pics, not the usual quality that I strike for. Wish they had been professional pics but thought it was worth sharing.

    I have nothing against phoenix but she looked a mess! People get married only once mayne.. Strive to look your best that’s all I have to say.. Bangs are very hard to pull off. That being said I wish them a happy and fruitful marriage.
