Jude Okoye and Ify Traditional Igbo Wedding in Anambra | SpacoMedia | BellaNaija 0032

P-Square‘s manager, video director and older brother Jude Okoye and MBGN Tourism 2012/model Ify Umeokeke tied the knot a month ago in the bride’s hometown of Nnewi, Anambra State.

The pregnant and pretty bride looked stunning in her 3 outfits – the first, pink lace, the second, a beaded outfit and the third, a gold ensemble matching with her groom. Guests wore cobalt blue, very on trend this year. The ladies were in guipure lace, and the gents wore aso oke stoles with mtaching hats.

Celebrity guests were in attendance including the groom’s brother Paul Okoye and his wife Anita, rapper Phyno who performed, MC and comedian Julius Agwu, musicians Flavour, J Martins, beauty queen Powede Lawrence and many more.

Enjoy the photos by Spaco Media!

    Fresh and pretty bride. Handsome groom. Very nice. Love that they were married in the bride’s compound. This is a true Igba Nwku Nwanyi. Papa Okoye must be on cloud 9: four of his children wed in the space of one year and he is bouncing grand babies on his proverbial knees with more on the way. May God continue to bless the Okoye family and may peace reign among them.
