How Ameena & Hakeem Met
by Ameena
Hakeem and I met at a friend’s place in 2008. I happened to be walking in his direction when I tripped over the stairs and fell in front of him. I was with my best friend so she helped pull me up and introduced us. We were on a balcony and it was really cold outside He removed his jacket and handed it to me and we just started talking. The rest is was history. I remember telling my friend that night that I have met the ‘guy’!

The Proposal
After I finished my final year at medical school in 2011, I went back to Nigeria. On a Friday in the first week of July, he picked me up from home and said he wanted to show me a house he had been admiring. As we were driving, I began to realise we are going out of town a bit. We started to climb a hill with his car and in my mind I was like what sort of house is this? 🙂

We reached the top and sat on a bench. We were over looking the whole of Abuja. He started to make a long speech about the future and I then knew what was coming! He got down on his knee and asked me to marry him…Of course, I said YES lol. It was so serene and how I always wanted – Personal and intimate.
This was followed by official introduction/ engagement a few months later.

Ameena Mahey Rasheed and Hakeem Shagaya‘s wedding kicked off in Katsina with the Sa Lalle ceremony where the bride was gorgeously adorned with Lalle/Henna decoration – this event marked the beginning of her bridehood. It was a chance for the women in the family as well as female friends to bond ahead of the rest of the wedding schedule. Up next was the Kamu ceremony. As the bride Ameena is Hausa-Fulani, according to traditional Fulani culture, the Kamu is “the catching of the bride”. Her faced was covered and female representatives haggled the groom for a price to see the bride’s face. After the amount was agreed and exchanged, her veil was opened and perfume was sprayed on the bride! With the bride Ameena looking lovely her traditional outfit in resplendent aqua blue tones accessorized with gold jewellery; the groom chose a classic cream and ivory traditional attire, it was a night rich in culture and tradition as everyone celebrated the joyous union.

After the Wedding Fatiha ceremony was completed, it was time for more celebration at the the wedding reception! Ameena looking amazing in her all-gold traditional outfit paired with a gold headtie which also complemented her husband Hakeem’s white attire. For the wedding reception night party, there was no doubt who the focus of all the activities was as the couple once again emerged with Hakeem dressed in a black Babariga with gold trimmings while Ameena’s striking red and gold outfit elicited WOWs from everyone in attendance.

With the formal wedding festivities concluded, it was time for the bride to journey to her new home. As she was unveiled at the Kai Amarya ceremony at her new family home. With that done, a cultural night celebrating the Ameena and Hakeem took place in Abuja. It was a great event with traditional dancing and a traditional play called “Gada“.

The wedding cocktail party was so much fun with Burna Boy and Iyanya entertaining guests while friends gave speeches and had a merry time with the couple. The grand finale of Ameena and Hakeem’s wedding was their wedding reception at the International Conference Centre in Abuja. The bride had looked so beautiful all through the wedding festivities and she was totally gorgeous once again as she stepped out in her Oscar de la Renta wedding dress. With her hair in a striking high bun accentuated with a glittering hair piece and a dramatic lace veil, she looked stunning! The groom looked handsome in his bespoke double-breasted powder blue suit.

With award-winning soul singer Bez serenading them as they  walked hand-in-hand into their wedding reception, it was such an amazing moment. The rest of the event was filled with live performance from superstars including M.I, the couple’s first dance, speeches, fun moments with friends and lots more!

BN wishes Ameena and Hakeem a blessed life together as one.

    Beautiful blend of Northern and Yoruba culture. I guess the bride and groom are a mix of both.

      Gorgeous,u are right ,the Hakeem Shagaya‘s is second son of Bola shagaya yoruba from kawara state bron in Lagos nr.2 or nr.3 richest Nigeria woman and the woman Northern from katsina state Hausa-fulani ,last time was are first son that marry Bamanga Turkur durgther in yola,also fulani by tribe.i hope the third son goes to yoruba or ibo gal not all northern,na wa. any way is good if nigeria intermarriages take place we will have less tribe problem,cos everybody become mixed,for 100yrs we not more than 5% to 10% mixed up, of 2 or 3 tribs marrigae.

    I keep saying it, there is a big difference between weddings and NUPTIALS! This one na pure, unadulterated nuptials o. Hausa people are fine die. And I spy the couple from that other big Northern wedding that BN had few months ago. Big people know each other, water get level.

    Father in heaven, you dey see am so o. We dey here dey wait!
    P.S.: Other naija brides please learn from these northerners: you can cover up your body and still ooze of class and sophistication! 🙂
    Lemme go and start from the beginning AGAIN lol…

    Love this wedding..especially the traditional decor. Now that’s how I picture my traditional wedding..of course, perhaps with bamboo seats. But yes, the money speaks, and it spoke well. Classy bride, didn’t showcase all her goods. Love love this wedding. May I say there are beautiful ppl at this wedding..Natural beauty should be encouraged more among Nigerian women. Makeup should be done flawlessly, and preferably minimally.

    Being a northerner myself ‘Christian’ you all have to understand that most northern ladies especially the Muslims are nurtured in a way that most men would die to have them. Truth! First, they are usually not that exposed to begin with so they are quite shy and innocent which most men especially the wealthy would find desirable. Also, they are mostly from well to do homes which makes it quite easy for the guys as there is no desperation of being wanted for their money and what not. Thirdly, marriages are sometimes arranged which means the lady does not have a string of men she has dated attached to her name. Well, most men find that desirable too. Before, you all go wanting a northern guy ‘Wealthy’ do you fall under this category? Shikenan!!! Back to the wedding, gorgeous, gorgeous all the way…

    The Shagayas keep upping the ante mehn. Jesus! Where do I start from? The rich display of culture; the lovely outfits worn by the bride – thumbs up to Schon Afrique; the groom’s power suit – he seems a tad shy; the beautifully dressed ladies at all the events; tastefully applied makeup …. I could go on and on. this wedding is giving me life to the nth degree. Ahhhhh.
    Decor on point. And to have Bez serenade me at my wedding … faints! Good to see the other Shagaya brother whose wedding was on BN a couple of months back. His wife maked being pregnant so desirable. She’s still as beautiful as she looked on her wedding day.
    This wedding is … I can’t shout. Ameena and Hakeem, may your marriage be blessed with love and good fortune in Jesus name.

    By the way, please who knows the name of the fabric used for the aso-ebi for the bride’s friends at the Abuja Cultural Night event? Th green and pink fabric used as wrappers and headgears http://cdn.bellanaija.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Ameena-Rasheed-Hakeem-Shagaya-Conveyance-of-the-Bride-Cultural-Evening-Abuja-April-2013-BellaNaija-Weddings007.jpg is giving me ideas for my aso-ebi. Something different from the usual lace, ankara and velvet combos everyone is using now. Please if you know the name of the fabric and where it can be sourced, please help a sistah out. God bless you..
    God bless Ameena and Hakeem. Happy married life.

      It is called saqaqe. It’s old school traditional Hausa wrappers. Our grandparents used to tie. They are usually navy blue and white like the ones the little girls were wearing with the white lace in the beginning. It’s not aso oke

    I’ve asked this question over and over again, nobody answered me. I will ask again, WHAT DO HAUSA WOMEN, EVEN THEIR MEN USE ON THEIR SKIN TO HAVE THE PERFECT COMPLEXION AND GLOW? God, I need my skin to be glowing like that. Share your secret!! Abi, God just dey bless them like that.
    Back to the wedding. I’m speechless, all I can say is another OVER FINE WOMAN AND RICH WEDDING. The stunning woman that makes pregnancy look easy. She’s what you call, NATURAL BEAUTY. God, please forgive me. chai her husband is good looking, my type of man.
    I need a hausa man in my life ASAP. My only fear is, me I no wan share my husband o. I want to be his only wife. Too many fineboyz in the pics, I no fit choose.
    Bella, abeg do me a favor. I’ll send you my pic and email,then send it to my future husband for me. It’s a secret, between you and me bcos I don’t want all these squareheads to snatch him away.

      April 11, 2013 at 6:14 pm

      too much sun and stress will affect your skin. if you can’t avoid the sun, use sun block even though you’re black. Less stress will make your skin glow and money helps you avoid stress…see how they get there. But more than anything, don’t underestimate the power of good make up that makes you look like you have no make up on. sometimes after i’ve put my make up on, even I would marry myself.

I see so many different venues and bridal outfits and dresses and such. Is there any guide to what all goes down and when? Someone help me out with the information please. Thank you.

    I usually read old posts. I have a few questions;
    I wonder how people will comment now to these types of pictures lol Seeing as they are children of Northern elite and aladat.
    Also I miss this kind of make-up look so subtle chai.
    IDK sha but from these comments I could sense the optimism of the oil boom years, now water has found its level.

      I’m telling you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
      Reading comments on BN Weddings used to be so fun. People were genuinely happy to see people happy.
      Now all you read is people whining about how expensive the weddings are. It’s not even fun anymore!
      People loved to visit BN Weddings to see high end weddings because somehow, they provided an escape from the drudgery of our daily lives and enabled us to live vicariously.
      Now you can’t even click on a wedding post without seeing that insufferable and high handed martyr Letty moaning about the ‘teeming masses.’
      God punish killjoys, I swear!
