      Ethiopian girls bleach a lot. See her parents tanned colour and look at her.

    • Huhhh

      May 15, 2015 at 3:44 pm

      Well black people come in different shades. My parents are both naturally fair skinned (the typical East type) but I’m dark skinned and look like a combination of both of them. So explain that. Also only a few family members are dark with 90% being fair. Black complexions vary and she is quite close to her parents complexion as opposed to myself.

      Rejoice with those who rejoice! She is young and her blood still dey hot reason for the freshness.

      Na wa, is it jealousy or what. I would have thought even seeing the parent would have put to rest all these bleach bleach talk, as if God did not make some black people light skinned, they are obviously very fair as well and if they are a tiny bit darker that would make sense as we tend to get darker as we age. All this racist behaviour, did you enter any Ethiopian girl’s lotion container to see the bleach? Do they bleach more than Nigerians do on average, especially considering we are obviously naturally darker people? I don’t even get

      you must be color blind my dear. Her dad is obviously light skinned even though it’s a fact that most people darken with age. Just appreciate the fact that God created her light skinned……and stop showing inferiority complex.

      People usually tend to look darker as they age. Plus she might have heard of sunscreen earlier than her parents?
      Not saying it’s impossible, but just saying too.
      Indian girls bleach a lot too

      With all due respect ur comment doesnt even make sense at all. My parents are fair in complexion yet my sisters and i are extremely fairer than both of them so how do u explain such. We women need to start elevating out selves instead of tearing each other down.

    • Seriously

      May 15, 2015 at 3:52 pm

      Beast. The bride looks tense and can’t wait for this so called “wedding” to be over. It’s definitely an arranged marriage. And a plan for money sharing. It’s odd all together.

    • gabi

      May 15, 2015 at 4:34 pm

      Hmm @seriously yes ooo d girl is not happy at all she says she’s doing it for her mum to remove dem from poverty.her mum is from Edo while her dad is Ethiopian n half cape verdean

      How do you know? We need to stop judging things we don’t know, the man has been wifeless for 5 years and you can’t just say congrats and mind your business, oga o!

    • Nkechi

      May 18, 2015 at 5:20 pm

      Non beast. Why didn’t you marry her and if you are a lady, why didn’t you get your uncle or brother to marry her Those complaining about this marriage don’t even have the nerve to approach this lady. It’s not that easy for fine girls o. Their age mates are always intimidated. So critics don’t tell me that you never flew the airline. Under your nose Gov Oshi summoned courage. It is to late to talk. If you like call him beast from Australia to Abuja, his life is better for it. The man has achieved, got married, has children and re marrying after 5yrs. Since you left college have you done anything that has imprinted your name in history? Some people are still trying to get a job or even get married. I beg concentrate on your life.

    I’m just wondering if Comrade Governor was a bus driver plying Okoko – Mile 2 or a taxi cab driver would Lara be marrying him today and she boarded his bus or cab would one thing lead to another and she be marrying him? 🙂 Lara enjoy the money ojare buy that Hermes bag after all if you nor fine like this, Governor sef for nor look you.
    Timi Dakolo erhiowanor. Love dwells in all sorts of places o including but not limited to faces and pockets.
    Congratulations to my Governor and his gorgeous wife.

    • ChicAlert!!!

      May 15, 2015 at 2:11 pm

      Maybe then Lara would be a paraga seller and yes it’s possible for her to still marry him in such condition …..mumu

    • TA

      May 15, 2015 at 3:09 pm

      @ ChicAlert I asked that question because there are rumours that she met him while working as a flight attendant. So if as a flight attendant she met him as a taxi cab driver would she marry him?
      And why the insult? If you have a point state it and use your words. Its childish to resort to insults.

    • 4real

      May 15, 2015 at 5:56 pm

      I’m just wondering if you (TA) are a keke driver plying Oshodi-Ketu, would you be here typing this comment.

    • ChicAlert!!!

      May 15, 2015 at 7:15 pm

      use another word in place of this your ‘childish’ that you wrote cos childish is not working here… many cab drivers or danfo drivers you know wey get courage to ask a flight attendant to marry him

    • Shopperoflife

      May 15, 2015 at 4:13 pm

      For all we know, she might be in love no ni. Show me a girl that actually sets out to marry a poor man. Most ugly men actually do hv a good heart. They know that they are deficient in d looks department and so, make up for it by being kind hearted and good lovers. I don’t mean sex o. Back in d day, l know extremely beautiful girls who saved money and flew first class just cos they were hoping to meet men with deep pockets. Some did, fell in love and married their men. Point is, there are some women who just prefer older men. The bonus is if such a man were rich. Why marry an older, wrinkly man who is poor to boot? God forbid bad tin! HML to both of them

    • mrs chidukane

      May 15, 2015 at 2:11 pm

      @miss pee, they look absolutely devastated! Hahahahaha! Even the groom looks one kind. The girl came for money obviously. She’s not proud of her husband, you can see that in the way she’s standing and how awkward their hand holding is.

  19. e.j

    May 15, 2015 at 1:09 pm

    My Pastor once said to me, “E.j. if an old man asks for your hand in marriage do not marry him! He is not looking for a wife, he is looking for a nurse.”

      May 16, 2015 at 8:14 am

      Yes, unfortunately the wife will do a lot of nursing and I’m wondering how all her ‘needs’ will be met. Well it’s her choice. I wish them well

    Congrats to them. Bella I trust you well enough to be fair and just to post ALL the wedding pictures and not just random selection of the bride not smiling at the time of the shot so people can conclude that she’s not happy.
    Looking at her parents they don’t look so hungry they’d force their sweet lil daughter to marry anyone. So the bride is most def not forced here, it’s her choice so why shouldn’t she be happy biko nu? And if she’s really a gold digger wouldn’t she be celebrating her “maga”???
    That was what they said about Lola not being happy on her wedding day but Bella proved to be a blogger per excellence. I cannot wait wait to feast my eyes on the real pics Bella. Hurry up! Lol!

    i guess the groom has some special powers and skills that no one knows and did I mention that the groom is totally handsome and not old enough to be her father. I guess This is now a trend and I’m sure most girls won’t mind to follow this trend. But the groom is very fine!

    When your stepmom is your agemate. I hope his children dont feel too bad. If he wasnt rich and she wasnt beautiful, this marriage wouldnt have happened so in that case I say congrats, they are both getting what they want. Its not just her. She is chopping his money and he is chopping her youth. HML

    May 15, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    She is not Ethiopian. She is from Cape Verde. Lovely girl. Not sure she understands what she’s getting herself into but I’m sure all that money will help cushion the day to day realities of being an old man’s new trophy.

    May 15, 2015 at 3:07 pm

    The honest truth is/are; 1) The man is not ugly, it only seems so because the girl is really beautiful.(light makes darkness more obvious than it is). 2) The man strikes me as a matured, kind hearted true/genuine man (going by the way he’s handled his affairs over the years). 3) Marriage/love is not all/only about looks. If you find someone that treats you right, looks becomes secondary. If you marry a gorgeous man that abuses you my dear, he’ll turn to a beast in your eyes oh and it works both ways as well.. 4) I pray they grow to love GOD and each other more everyday and more blessings to them. HAPPY MARRIED LIFE.

      A decent level of physical attraction? So those who aren’t “physically attractive” aren’t entitled to happy relationships and life? And what’s your definition of “physical attraction”? It’s relative o

    Free them joo. He and she is free to marry whomever they desire. when she is dealing with the issues that comes with marrying an older person, none of you will be there. Also, when he is dealing with the insecurities of marrying a youger beautiful woman, ya’ll will not be there.
    at least he has shown that he appreciates God’s beautiful creation. I don’t blame him…. a feast for sore eyes. Ride on bro. good luck and God bless

    He’s been widowed for a few years, so far we haven’t heard that he snatched her from anyone. He has a right to choose her and she has every right to accept him. At least he’s done it right by marrying her instead of , making her his mistress

    When will these old men marry a woman in their own age group? Nigeria is overflowing with widows and many older women who would be happy to remarry and love again, yet time and again these old kangaroos have no interest in them. Not knocking the young lady who took up his offer, but it is highly annoying that the older woman never gets a chance with these men.

    • newbie

      May 16, 2015 at 12:24 pm

      Because people will take up with and marry anyone they like and so long as both are over the age of consent, chikena! There’s no rule that says people must marry within their age group or marital status i.e. widow to widower. I can’t believe the amount of incredibly myopic views being expressed on this topic.

    We all have our unique paths in this life. I can bet that more than half of the girls/ladies making funny comments would have done equally the same thing. Some are currently involved in very shameful relationships with good for nothing men and they cone here to make comments. Sort out your own life and leave this babe alone. At least there is an honour and respect that accompanies being a governor’s wife.Besides that man has pursued a worthy cause. Whatever rocks her boat. In this life, there will always be compromise. If this is the path she has chosen, I wish her the best.

    Two different scenarios here as to why this fackery happened (the thing dey pain me lol she’s too pretty). Anyways 1: arranged marriage due to a deal gone bad between the girl’s papa and the governor. Hence, the girl is the sacrificial lamb. 2: Cape Verde wants a taste of Nigerian money. Gold digging things. I refuse to believe this is true love biko.

    Hmmmm but come to think of it I don’t really blame her bcos she is 37yrs old and it’s the same people abusing her that she married her ancestor that will also abuse her and say go and marry.the young men should just shut up and get lost why didn’t they marry guys leave all the girls unmarried and now complain when the older men marry them.

      May 16, 2015 at 12:07 am

      Wow. They’re going to hell because they didn’t marry for love? I’d like to know what version of the bible you’re reading because I have not come across that one before. People can marry for whatever the heck reason they choose. When did love start featuring in marriage arrangements kwanu? Whether in Africa or around the world generally? It’s a relatively modern concept. People typically married for procreation, security, to preserve strategic family alliances and finally for companionship. This ambiguous thing called ‘Love’ is a more recent concept for marriage. Ain’t nobody going to hell, biko.

    Wont dispute peoples comments but u always know liers,hypocrites and bad belle peoples,didn’t come for any.
    This is problem here is that gov Oshiomole is completely invincible,’he just dey like shadow’,it takes my brain 20secs to process that somebody is next to her.
    all the guys there look like they would rush her if anything happens to him right there in the wedding,he’s so desperate yet they call d gurl a gold digger mean while his the one rushing the gurl.nawao!! the parents of the bride and groom just dey mourn the wedding,tis a this wedding everything is just WRONG,RUSHED & ROUGH. lastly dont care if this gurl is a gold digger digging gold or digging an old man,but i just want to ask her…’gurl really,like seriously!!’ wait wait ‘really!’

    I dey laugh o! All your comments both the genuine and the sardonic make me laugh. But honestly speaking I think we should rejoice with a 37 -year-old single lady who has succeeded in getting a man to marry for whatever reason and from wherever ( if indeed she is 37 because she doesn”t look it) . Tell me how many men are still single at 37? or would you have preferred that she became a second wife somewhere? What is wrong in a woman nursing an old man till death do them part if she doesn”t find the sight repulsive as some ladies would. Afterall one man”s meat is another man”s poison. It is better to marry a single man than to destroy another person”s marriage in the name of a second wife.Y es polygamy may be permissible but surely hurting and counter productive.
