BN Celebrity Weddings: This ‘Welu Welu’ Feeling – Sammie Okposo weds Ozioma Mkparu



Popular gospel musician, Sammie Okposo tied the knot with his sweetheart, Ozioma Mkparu at the Lagoon Restaurant and Banquet Hall on the 1st of July 2010.

The couple who had celebrated their traditional wedding in June 2010 were all smiles as they were joined as husband and wife in the presence of their friends, family and as expected – lots of celebrities.

With shades of green contrasting brilliant white all around the venue, it was a beautiful setting for a truly unique ceremony. The bride, Ozioma glowed in her single strap ruffled wedding dress while Sammie beamed with pride and happiness each time they locked eyes.

Sammie and Ozioma’s day was so festive with lots of music, laughter and romantic interludes including a long kiss as they completed their first dance. Congrats Sammie & Ozioma!

    Some of the photos look unprofessionally taken,they have the shadow of the photographers cast on them.Apart from that some of them look awkward.Anyways I am happy for Sammy,he was long overdue.So its not only ladies who get overdue.The Bride is lovely.All the guest look good but I dont fancy Keffi’s “Shine shine” dress. Maybe she should go 4 ready made dresses.

    At Alero, I guess you are saying that because the pictures are not photo shopped like all the wedding pictures these days. They are real. Like pictures are supposed to be.

    The wedding’s so nice and I wish the couple the best in this union. However, the bride’s maids dresses were awwwwwww!, could have been better, The bride’s dress is soooooo beautiful i wish I can have it? I see Samsong! I see Anny with Kefee. Her dress is not bad but for her image she could have done better. But all in all, gooooooooood!!!!!!! Finally thank God for SAMMMIEEEE OOO, at least ladies can rest and mothers can sleep well!!

    Segun Arinze has that disgusted expression no matter what. There is nothing wrong. Lovely dress choice for the bride, Sammy there are tons of stuff you can do for that discoloration, it makes u look older than u realy are. Love ur songs, happy married life!

    Where has RMD been hiding? I haven’t seen in a new movie in a while!
    The bride looks absolutely beautiful.

  40. D.O.T.M.H.

    July 14, 2010 at 10:45 am

    That’s a really pretty dress + RMD still has it going for him 🙂

  41. Peperempe

    July 14, 2010 at 11:03 am

    The wedding is lovely and the bride is the absolute star of the show, brothers need to work very hard to afford this kain wife oh!

    BTW, I have to table the cases of Olisa & kefee. One has refused to marry and the other one insists on wearing enough polyester to light up Festac for two weeks. I will leave their cases for God.

    On a different note, I think we need to set up a trust fund for some of our national treasures. K.O.K and Agatha Amata for example aren’t looking too good at the moment.

    Lawyer RMD is now a Commissioner in Delta State, no time for acting movies. Love his tie by the way.
