BN Exclusive: Nollywood legend Liz Benson’s wedding

Love stories like this are really refreshing and uplifting! Nollywood legend Liz Benson got married in an intimate court ceremony in Abuja a few months ago. In July, Liz and her beau Bishop Great Emeya celebrated their love by walking down the aisle at the Rainbow Christian Assembly in Warri, Delta State. The couple are both deeply involved in Christian ministry – Liz is an evangelist while Bishop Great is a pastor of one of the largest ministries in Warri. They also have overcome tragic circumstances as Liz is a widow while Bishop Great is a widower. It was a really beautiful day and as you can tell from the photos – the couple were indeed overjoyed and ready to spend the rest of their lives together!

  • dg September 27, 2009 at 3:11 pm

    So happy for her… wish her all the happiness in the world. I miss her acting, she was awesome on screen. As everyone has said, she still looks young, fresh and beautiful. All the best, Liz!!!

  • dg September 27, 2009 at 3:15 pm

    No, definitely not! The Rainbow church for homosexuals is in Lagos and is waaaay smaller than this one (as you can imagine, the congregation is tiny). Plus I really doubt if it’s still functional, I think the pastor had to flee the country to evade arrest, when the story came out on CNN and the police went after him….

  • tele September 28, 2009 at 8:42 am

    may your union be eternally blessed,this is Just a testimony of what God can do regadless of what you might have been through,i miss your acting though,will really love to see you start a christain production in acting.take kia n u really look beautiful .

    She is truly an ageless beauty. Her acting was always on point.I wish them both a very blessed union with challenges that will strengthen them and an endless love that’ll forever bind them.

  • jen September 29, 2009 at 3:22 am

    Whats with the veil?

  • Tosin September 29, 2009 at 5:44 am

    whats wrong with the veil? is she not meant to wear one?

  • Tosin September 29, 2009 at 5:49 am

    the link you asked us to click to see their website does not lead to their website, its better you remove that from the article.

  • Samuel October 1, 2009 at 3:52 am

    She is so pretty, I wish I can marry her daugther.

  • Suzanna Efiok October 1, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    All the very best on your second go at marriage, Liz!!! You are lucky to have a second chance at love because not many get the opportunity.

    PS: In my personal opinion, wearing white was inappropriate. I think a hint of color would have been great not only because this is not a first time for both of them but also, colors incorporated into a wedding dress is in vogue. The veil was a stretch though I am glad at least it was not a full on train.

  • Joke October 2, 2009 at 1:42 pm

    Una don come oh. the gown is not pure white and neither is his suit. its thier day and they both have a right to dress as they wish. they are both looking good, and you are not sure if she did a white wedding or not the first time. We shouldnt let tradition and religion stand in the way of happiness.

  • Suzanna Efiok October 2, 2009 at 2:03 pm

    My friend, which part of “IN MY PERSONAL OPINION” by passed you?

  • bbf October 2, 2009 at 2:21 pm

    Veil or no veil! deir Happiness for the DAY matters to them and deir soul. I wish u d very best in life. New couple w should b xpecting deir Baby anytime! lol

  • Kemipen October 10, 2009 at 4:46 pm

  • lee October 12, 2009 at 4:14 pm

  • Patricia Ejim November 10, 2009 at 11:23 am

    you guys must be color blind cos her dress is nt white and it has black pattern on it, let God decide who is his SAINT or VIRGIN please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Halle November 16, 2009 at 11:42 am

    Naija sha!
    What has her wearing white got to do with her happiness or her relationship with God? I suppose all of u who r judging her for wearing white are all saints n virgins? People sha! God bless and protect your home Liz! As for the ppl making comments about her wearing white, if anyone of you is a babe, I hope you are not over 25 and single cause that explains why men do not want to marry self righteous ppl like u!

  • Halle November 16, 2009 at 11:56 am

    “wearing white was inappropriate” Really? Who appointed u judge? Our culture sha…! If she wore a full veil…what wud have been wrong with it. No offence meant cause thats ur opinion but can we not criticise ppl all d time. It wud have been nice to just comment her n move on.

  • Linda Lopez November 17, 2009 at 3:36 pm

    Wat’s wiv d “white” thing? It’s her freakin’ weddin’ day 4 cryin’ out loud and she is very entitled 2 wearin’ watever in d blue hell she wants 2 wear. She ain’t tryn’a impress anybody but herself and her beau so all y’all talkin’ junk about white could go jump off a flippin’ bridge. Geez! Anyways, I wish u all d gud things dat marriage has 2 offer Liz cuz u so deserve 2 be happy.

    ojare Liz congratulations; God has finally done it. i am happy for you. He has promoted you; just remain happy. Ehen Liz this woman talking about white or no white for your wedding was cxertainly having a bad dream as everybody can see that she commented on your weddind at an odd hour

  • Oreoluwa August 1, 2010 at 3:57 pm

    Liz you are good; white, green, yellow any colour at all comes dazzling on you. we are all happy with and for you. Listen even if you had worn the colour suzanna at 02.58pm had suggested (which is not mentioned anyway) you would still have been excellent. Roll on Liz you are under the surveillance of the most High God who has blessed you among all women.

  • ivy September 16, 2010 at 5:40 pm

    i ave alwayslove her she one of my favourite actress congrant

  • cindy March 12, 2011 at 10:08 pm

    human beings always winning about something……white was traditionally meant for women marrying as virgins not because its for a first wedding…..afterall most people who wear it on their first weddings are not virgins…..the koko is dat she is getting married and she looks beautiful in her dress….end of story…
