Yemisi Aiyedun (Sisi Yemmie) & Yomi Odusanya Emerge As Winners of the My Big Nigerian Wedding Competition!



MBNWedding Grand Finale189

Congratulations to Yemisi Aiyedun & Yomi Odusanya!

After a keenly contested competition among the Top 10 couples at the Grand Finale of My Big Nigerian Wedding, Yemisi and Yomi have emerged winners. The elated couple would have their wedding sponsored to the tune of N15Million by top wedding vendors in Nigeria. They would also have their honeymoon at the world’s most luxurious hotel, Burj Al Arab in Dubai.

The competition was an interesting one which comprised of different stages. Coincidentally, Yemisi & Yomi were almost knocked out of the competition at the first stage. Yemisi scored 50 points during the first Q&A session and was in a tie with two other couples.

However, Yomi saved them and broke out of the tie after a fun carrot and rope competition where he was the first person to get his rope into a glass. They then rejoined the two couples who scored the highest points (60) in the first stage.

Yemisi was also successful in identifying her man even with a blindfold around her eyes. During this stage, all the ladies won.

And in a very romantic and unexpected twist, Yomi proposed again to Yemisi after they won.

MBNWedding Grand Finale159

The couple have been dating for 11 years and have weathered many storms in their relationship together.

Here is her touching story on

We deserve to win because we have been dating for over 10 years now, and the last 6 years have been long distance….it is about time we got married! It has not been an easy journey. Long distance is suffering!!! We only got to see once a year because of our academic pursuits which is why winning would be a dream to our family, friends and most especially both of us – The perfect icing on the cake. It would also take off the financial pressure from us. We kid you not. Our parents have invested heavily in us (education wise)…it would be a joy to tell them that they don’t have to spend a dime on our wedding. Help us make that happen : we have been waiting for this for the past 10 years! Please vote for us! Vote everyday! God bless you!

The show was hosted by CoolFM OAP Mercy Ajisafe aka Omo London and took place at The Haven Event Centre Ikeja GRA, official venue partner of MBNWedding. Among other things to be announced soon, the couple would have their wedding catered for by the Dream Team which includes Tosan Jemide of Cakes By Tosan, Kelechi Amadi-Obi, Banke Meshida-Lawal of BM Pro, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe of Zapphire Events, Mai Atafo, Concepteur de Fruitée & Sweet Indulgence. They would have their decor done by Nwandos Signature, official decorator of MBNWedding.

Watch out for more as the couple’s journey to their N15Million wedding has just begun!

    Fraud. They knew the organizers. They had only 200 votes in the first competition but because sisi yemmie had online presence. They made them go through to the second round. The organizers now disqualified the couple who won the first round and were about winning the 2nd round, cos they saw them as competition for sisi yemmie. God dey sha. Naija and Ojoro things. I am not surprised. Well goodluck to them and wish them marital bliss

    • The truth

      April 3, 2014 at 8:04 am

      U ARE VERY CORRECT! They had less than 500 votes in the first section when people were topping 16k and from no where they are the winners. Do not kid yourselves! too bad. RIGGING AT ITS FINEST.

    • nuellla

      April 3, 2014 at 8:39 am

      My thoughts exactly….nothing is authentic in Nigeria,this couple had far less than others,how are they miraculously the winners….mschew and we say govt is corrupt.

    • nuellla

      April 3, 2014 at 8:43 am

      Damn! nothing is authentic in Nigeria,cant be honest with a simple competition,this couple clearly had less than others and we all saw it,how are they miraculously the winners? and we say govt is corrupt,,,mschew!

    • goldfinch

      April 3, 2014 at 11:49 am

      Which was quite surprising that she had very few votes compared to others despite her “online presence”. Makes you question the loyalty and credibility of her followers or maybe everything is just a hype. She’ll definitely work for that money, she’s a blogger so free promo for the organizers.

    • Dugo

      April 3, 2014 at 8:08 am

      Ehen! The mirror has broken,the eye can finally rest…every darn thing in Nigeria is tainted with wuru wuru.Whoever comes here too act surprised that they won;yimu! That’s why they disqualified the previous leading couples to pave the way for thier candidate…Sisi and Bobo were going to have a grand wedding anyways…MBN should’ve just let some other couple who needed the break to get a chance at a dream…

    • Ebony

      April 3, 2014 at 10:16 am

      Thank you jare! Rigged! Was my very first thought when I read the story God dey sha! To the rightful winners of this competition who were wrongfully denied may you have a beautiful wedding full of love and laughter.

      Oh PLEASSE. Kindly take several seats. If you read the rules of the competition, You would realise that the website votes were not the only ones that counted. Social Media i.e Facebook likes were counted as votes AND SISI YEMMIE AND BOBO HAD ALOT. I know because I voted DAILY. Just in case you didn’t know, daily votes counted. Just because you’re used to fraud doesn’t mean everyone is fraudulent.

      April 3, 2014 at 12:14 pm

      Even if your sister won soneone will still say its fraud. Are those not the physical contest pictures. Or did they plant the other 9 contestants at the finals? Or they jazzed them up to miss questions. Common think my friend. Think

      April 5, 2014 at 1:27 am

      If you both did not want your parents to spend a dime….you might as well have gone to Ikoyi Registry to seal the deal!!! Organiser need to tell us why other couples with leading votes got disqualified and the sudden rise in Yemisi’s votes! Akin Eso (sp) & Co knew well enough that the top 10 couples were no competition to Yemisi and Yomi.

    • dedun

      April 5, 2014 at 11:18 pm

      Sudden rise in a votes is simply because she was always on twitter, everyday till poll closed asking people to vote and retweet.

    Firstly, I’m very sure Yemisi did not bribe the organisers… Yes her blog created a platform and they took interest in her. C’mon she’s a sweet soul! Now this right here is Unmerited Favour and the Almighty’s Grace. Hahahahaha very well deserved hun…. Congratulations! X

    Am I the only one that finds the fact that 15million is a ridiculous amount of money to spend on just a wedding? That amount of money can buy a duplex in Surulere!

    • angelicbola

      April 3, 2014 at 10:58 am

      My thoughts exactly. N15 Million would build 2 fine house for my area in Ile-Ife.

    • beeeee

      April 3, 2014 at 10:01 pm

      I think so too, I think 15 million is too much, they could have used that for 3 good weddings

    • Ahday

      April 18, 2014 at 3:33 pm

      Which Surulere? You obviously have no idea about real estate!

    April 3, 2014 at 2:06 pm

    Make una leave this thing. Wuru Wuru no be small. Their voting process was terrible, they had an online system that just wasn’t working properly and all of a sudden KABOOM. I knew of several couples who shut their campaign down immediately they smelled a rat. However, I love Sisi Yemi to the moon and back. She was just favored and blessed. Kudos to you darling

  23. Luqman

    April 3, 2014 at 2:21 pm

    Were the other contestants blindfolded during the question and answer segments?
    Instead of saying common congrats, Some Nigerians would find a means of pulling down the people they have never seen in their life, I don’t know if it is poverty that make us to be nursing so much hatred.
    To criticize people is highly welcomed so that people can use their criticism to improve themselves on their missing links but haters (Mba). Poverty no be good things, we no dey see something good again, if you are building a white house in Nigeria (something very conspicuous), some people will still call it a black house.

    Some Nigerians can finish your career with their hatred syndrome

    Congrats O jare!

  24. always happy

    April 3, 2014 at 2:38 pm

    Una too like to dey do judge and jury on matters no one cares you are taking Panadol or alabukun for. Congrats to the winners ( be it deserved or undeserved ) they won, wishing you a gorgeous wedding with all these fabulous vendors ( who are also blessed to have another platform to market their products and services) and may everyone live in peace, love and harmony. Yes I am sipping something in my coffee mug this morning and it aint hatorade , you are welcome to join me.

  25. parky

    April 3, 2014 at 2:51 pm

    I believe they won because it was rigged from the start.beside they are the only one that has a big online presence out of the other contestants.all the same enjoy your trip

  26. madman

    April 3, 2014 at 5:30 pm

    What I gather from all this is that they cheated and they didn’t deserve to win.

  27. Deee

    April 3, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    Congratulations to them jare, Nigerians can too like to hate. Sorry if you or you family didn’t win but that is never enough reason to try and pull others down.

    @everyones saying it wAs rigged this babe has been fasting for three months now and una still say na rig. Unmerited favour. Oya take a few seats or you key in for your own testimony.

    April 3, 2014 at 11:10 pm

    To all those that said that the couple cheated, can you see the pics above showing a competition. Seems like a contest was done. They won the contest. How else can they cheat. Please stop hating on them and just simple say congratulations. And if u don’t have anything positive to say, just be mute. Haters oshiii…

    I am so surprised that bellanaija posted these comments, especially since they are fund of sieving comments especially to the favor of their “people”.

    Meanwhile, its so annoying everytime people have an opposing opinion and some myopic minding folks will jump out calling them “haters”. Definition of hater:”to dislike intensely or passionately; feel extreme aversion for or extreme hostility toward; detest: to hate the enemy”. This is such a strong and extreme word used so carelessly and when uncalled for. Why cant people voice their opinions or tell the truth when need be.

    I knew sisi yemmie would win, ojoro or not, but I don’t think ppl would believe they won just like that because of the online presence sisi yemi has, we’ll I don’t even understand why ppl want others to sponsor their weddings. If u can’t afford it then don’t get married, it isn’t like 15 million wedding will guarantee a happy home anyways so why the elaborate wedding ish with all the cock n bull stories by all the competitors. Each to their own. Bn if u like no post my comment. U too r part of d ojoro crew be dat.

  37. awww so cool! What kind of wedding does God recognise? (READ)

    Nigerians and bad belle! This attitude of not celebrating with people that are making it will never leave our blood. Sisi Yemmie is a lovely girl, ok she has a blog which may have helped her because she has alot of followers,good! But it came down to her hardwork on social media, its not easy to be constantly active on the web. Also, go and read how she won, favourite colour got them 15million. The other people didn’t get the question right, how could they get such a question wrong, what do they discuss in their relationship? Why would you go into such competition without know simple things about your partner. Relationship is not about bedroom activies. Pray, work hard, go on dates and ask lots of questions about each other. And thats how sisi yemmie won, pls be happy for her.

    Ko ye wa moh o! What is the true story now? I thought Sisi Yemmie had lots of votes online nah. Nways Congrats Sisi and Bobo. God bless your marriage. Hope BN would serenade us with pictures from the wedding. Meanwhile I suggest the organizers set the records straight by releasing a statement. This one majority are unhappy bayi. #mytwocents

    I was part of the final contestants and i want to take this medium to wish Sisi & Yum-Yum a HML ahead. Congrats both of you. Am glad we crossed paths in this life Cheers!!!!

    April 6, 2014 at 12:04 pm

    if i were them, i would take the money and use it wisely. i5M is just too much to spend on a wedding. even 5M is too much.

  43. uzziblues

    April 6, 2014 at 3:08 pm

    It is totally callous for people to wake up out of the blues to think that dey cheated when Sisi worked endlessly for her votes. Where were u guys wen she begged tirelessly on every social media for votes, her friends and loved ones formed forums and more just for her. Contrary to ur opinions, she doesn’t even know so much celebrities. She is exceptionally talented with her writings and very creative. Remember what the bible says abt our gifts making ways for us and bringing us before great men, that is exactly wat happened to her. She just became an ambassador for maggi chicken or would u also say she rigged that one or bribed her way through, She deserves every dime of the money cos she’s an amazing person.
    Congrats my darling YOMYEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So ironic how people make derogatory comments then conclude it by adding a bit of “envious positive”. Why can’t we in this part of the world just be affirmative for once. Always so negative and distasteful towards each other for no justifiable reason…..People see the bad in every good when it should be the other way round. And we claim to have relationships with our God, when both popular religion preach LOVE. Let’s celebrate the moment and ignore unnecessary rumors. Congratulations Yesmisi & Yomi

    i was also part of the competition. the truth is that the competition was just and fair. it wasnt rigged. it was unfortunate that we werent able to answer our own questions correctly and fortunate for them cos the emerged the winner of the competition. congrats yemi and yomi but want to ask if the wedding have taken place cos i was expecting to see pictures online but was disappointed. i have not heard any info abt the wedding yet, why?
