    “I was never his ex”. Do I see a double negative there???

      The bride kinda looks like Eudoxie (Ludacris’ gf) in some shots..

      I don’t know about M. Williams but word on these American streets is Gabrielle Union (DWayne Wade’s “Fiancé) is Wale’s EX! Yeah, she was at the wedding too, probably reminiscing on all their good times together. *sips tea* 😀

      Gabrielle Union isn’t his ex. Another case of close friends hanging out with each other’s dates. She is/was close to Sanaa, now that he and Sanaa are done (probably amicably) she’s still allowed to be friends with whomever especially if her fiance also became close to him.

      He has to be the illest to date three women in the same circle of friends you know.

    DWade is in a league of men who can wear trainers with a suit and get away with it. Charisma!

    Michelle Williams forgot to sort her hair out properly.

    I am surprised no one has come out to complain of these girls stealing our men hahaha I still can’t understand why some Nigerian women stay thinking Nigerian me are reserved for them when they clearly have no problems with diversity lol. Gorgeous couple lovely wedding Michelle looks hot in that Ankara outfit. African brothers are hawt!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      who asked you anything. nobody is stealing anybody, biko. i’m looking for a congolese man to marry.

      who asked you to answer? Why is it paining you are you one of the complainers I just stated what I see regularly in the comment section each time a Nigerian groom married a non Nigerian bride you have a problem deal with it.

    • Dee-USA

      July 14, 2014 at 10:44 pm

      She isn’t stealing our man because he wasn’t born or raised in Nigeria. Much respect to him for still honoring the Nigerian tradition, but he’s an American just like Nnamdi Asomugha is.

      Did we read the same thing. She said she is surprised nobody has come out to say they are stealing our men. Comprehension is key

    • Dee-USA

      July 16, 2014 at 1:36 am

      I comprehend quite clearly. My response was explaining why no one is coming forward to make the statement she made. Perhaps you need a lesson in comprehension yourself.

    If I count the number of ogunleyes I have met in America that keep claiming this dude is their brother or cousin…chai? Where all of una in the photo ke? I bet most of y’all weren’t family enough to be invited to his wedding or did you fly across town to Reggie Bush ‘s wedding? Congrats to the couple nonetheless

    Whao so he invited Michelle his former girlfriend, But what about Actress Sanaa Lathan, You dated her the longest, why didnt you invite her too.

    I am surprised Michelle was there, cos less than 2 yrs ago they were going strong. however he dated Sanaa for like 4 yrs i think

    • Dee-USA

      July 14, 2014 at 10:45 pm

      She was never his girlfriend. She was dating another football player who was close to him, hence the closeness. He dated Sanaa Lathan.

  12. Linda L.

    July 14, 2014 at 8:39 pm

    Yes the bride does look like Eudoxie dating that atlanta ho Ludacris.
    She is beautiful. I never knew Ade liked them light like that tho.
    Congratulations bro. She musta captured ya heart real quick. cos i know for a fact you did not date this one that long like you did Sanaa or Michelle

  13. Linda L.

    July 14, 2014 at 8:40 pm

    If am not mistaken he even did Gabby too.

    Whao, this guy is good, to be able to get all his exes at his wedding. How is that possible. I guess good dick makes you hold no grudge

  14. Linda L.

    July 14, 2014 at 8:45 pm

    Instead of Eudoxie with all her beauty and brains (medical school grad) dating someone like Ade or some other african baller you are dating this uselesss akata idiot who is – anything in skirt walking around Atlanta (we live here we know). I guess he must have a 2 littre coke bottle size -. I am so disappointed in Eudoxiie on so many levels. So many smart intelligent educated African brothers will wife u easily. Drop that chicken dinner called Ludacris and quick. Leave him to his fellow ghetto birds.

      You seem so bitter. Should she dump him so you can get him? Oh what, you’re not interested? Then why are you carrying these people’s matter on top your head?

    • Ada

      July 16, 2014 at 11:54 pm

      Gabby and Michelle are not his exes .
      Eudoxie never went to medical school, let alone graduated. That is a false rumor. Your tea is stale and wrong. lol

    Yoruba King of Emure Ekiti!!!!? Really? So is there a Hausa and Igbo King of Emure Ekiti somewhere or probably an American King? Could help but notice that flimsy mistake sha! In other news, congratulations to the couples….

    Nigerians in America constantly wearing outdated trad styles. Meh

    Beautiful couple but that agbada. Nigerians in the US need to keep up with trends like their UK counterparts.

    • Ada

      July 16, 2014 at 11:58 pm

      One could easily say the same about Nigerians in Nigeria and their interpretations of US fashion trends. You stay in your lane, we’ll stay in ours.

    His wife is actually african too I heard. i believe Egyptian. probably why her and eudoxie resemble. Wale did good bc she is gorgeous. Sanaa was his ex never Michelle. Sanaa is a beautiful woman too but I’m sorry she is better and a dr. Good job
