Nollywood startlet Thelma Okoduwa took a big step on the 4th of April 2009, she walked down the aisle and married her sweetheart Onya Ojiji. The white wedding took place at the Blue Island Event Centre in Lekki Lagos. Thelma who is well-loved by her Nollywood colleagues had fellow actress Rita Dominic as her Maid of Honour while various Nollywood stars including Uche Jombo and Genevieve Nnaji were in attendance.

    Negativity has resumed again. It is all bout the marriage not the wedding…look like a bombshell then groom kicks you out the next day nko, or marries another mate (see my hausa sister looking fabulous for crappy political marriages)?

    Has Rita Dominic been bridesmaid twice in a few weeks span of time? Saw her in some wedding pics earlier…fun!!!

    They all look great! I wish the couple happy married life!

    And the bride is so simple and sweet. Her makeup is basic and her whole demeanor is chilled and lovely!

    rita’s gown is really short and doesn’t suit the occasion (being the maid of honor) at all

    ok, first off,my comments r based on MY OPINION so get it right!. That been said,…i think the bride looks elegant in all her outfits, and the groom looks really sharp in his suit. Now to the bridesmaids dresses…??? as in…wth?? i know pple want to look different and probably want to start a new trend…but seriously…its a wedding!!, and if u wanna go short pls let ur dresses be ON THE KNEE…not ABOVE…gosh, it just spells tacky to me. My 2cents.
