Comedian AY Weds Heartthrob Mabel



The Couple: Fast-rising comedian AY (Ayo Makun) and fiance/mother of his daughter, Mabel

Their Story: Ayo and Mabel have been a couple for several years and are blessed with a beautiful daughter named Michelle. The ever-jovial Ayo recently commented that ‘I love my wife and her legs trip me a whole lot. One of the reasons I married her was because of her fine legs’.

The Ceremony: On the 29th of November 2008, the Household of God Church was swathed in Turquoise Blue & Gold as Ayo and Mabel came together to solemnize their union. AY is often referred to as Household of God Pastor, Chris Okotie’s ‘son’, therefore it was not a surprise that Chris conducted the entire ceremony including the rendition of several praise songs. AY’s Best Man was fellow comedian Bovi Ugboma and various other entertainment industry friends including Ali Baba, Richard Mofe-Damijo, Faze, Gbenga Adeyinka, Stella Damasus and many other graced the occasion.

Such a cute couple! Mabel is absolutely stunning as well. As Proverbs 18:22 says “He who finds a wife finds a good thing And obtains favor from the Lord”. Only a week after his wedding, AY won the Diamond Award for ‘Best Comedian of the Year’, the award package includes a whopping 1 million naira prize and a brand new car!

    THe dress is FABULOUS!!! LOVE IT. its fits her to a tee and NOT white (duh, she don born pikin)…. plus she looks beautiful in it too. her bright bouqet compliments it well i think and the bottom is wat makes the dress work for me.
    not too crazy abt the bright yellow and bright blue for the bridesmaids tho but somehow the whole thing works.
    they look happy. congrats to them.

    [email protected] not wearing a white dress. At least she’s honest! People make mistakes shey? In my church after having that kid, the pastor will give you serious lectures before conducting the wedding, I guess Holyman Okotie did that.

    And he married her for her legs. Hmmm, stretchmarks and cellulite might be on the way, AY better brace himself oh! Nature ticktock!

    Beautiful bridal train!!!!! Congrats to the couple!!!!

    I don’t think its judging its making sure they’re really living accordingly (Bible-like i guess). Like converting an ex-crackhead and making sure they really rid the crack. Sorry wierd example!!!

    My church will let you get married after some serious repentance talk with Pastors and all. I’m not pentecostal. We’re just Orthodox!

    Even if the world is changing…do you go to church? Silver just said rightly, white dresses are traditionally for virgin brides (means purity) so the bride was honest in picking the right color.

    Unfortunately, virgin men were never given a color code!

    I think the bridesmaids look great though!!!!

  17. silver

    December 11, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    @ AM ,no man wants to be known as a virgin i guess, dats y dey don’t hv a colour code 4 virgin grooms(laffs)…

    They ALL look gorgeous, the hair, the makeup, etc., but gawd, the colors of the bridesmaids dresses were just awful! And that has nothing to do with jealousy, it’s a fact! Perhaps it is the lights that make the colors look weird in photos. The bride is gorgeous, and the little girl is an absolute doll.

    Silly colours! What was the inspiration? Comedy or costume? Bride was pretty but she should have returned the animal skin she used for her dress. Poor animal, I am sure s/he is pretty cold now.
    Please remove and smash the groom’s sunglasses!

    Pretty face. Please I would like to know if the bottom of the bride’s dress get caught up in a shredder?!
    Planner – the reason the groom cannot take off the sunglasses is because of the ‘damage-causing’ colours from emanating from the bridesmaids. Please save the groom’s eyes and do not smash his glasses. Tnx

    Now who ever chose these colours must have been drunk.. baby blue and yellow? common!!! now the bride is beautiful no doubt but men! that dress? It ugly even for a pretty girl. ok let cut the bride some slacks she dont have taste so she employed a wedding planner to choose her dress and the bridesmaids so note the person and murder her for spoiling your wedding photo album. So sorry but i need to be honest the men look hotter than the girls.

    IS it the wedding dress/ bridesmaids’ dresses or setting that we will chop( which by the way I like)?The bride is stunning, her bridesmaids did her justice.Her wedding went well.I wish them the best.
    Women are their own worst enemies and critques!

  28. hazel

    December 27, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    Well osi seem you are one of those who think they just need to open their mouth sad thing only noise comes out. Didnt say it was a bad wedding just the colours and point of correction, colours are what makes a wedding not the A-list guest. The couple are beautiful.

    I agree with Osi on women being their own worst enemies etc….
    hmm i wonder, is hazel just bitter that she hasn’t had her own wedding!! ‘cuz instead of focusing on the couples joy and the general happy event..she has to make irrelevant comments about their colours.. The funniest part is that she disses Osi for “just needing to open her mouth”…isn’t that IRONIC

    i love the wedding dress. flatters her figure and she decided to stand out of the crowd and not wear white as usual. our people have fallen for the myth that you have to wear white if u havn’t had a child out of wedlock and thats absolutely false. there is no written law that says it. what abt the women that walk to the altar when they’re pregnant? isnt it almost the same thing yet they wear white. i’m not really feeling the bridal train’s style of dress. but yea, i wud give the colour combination a 7 out of 10
