    BN nawa for your headline o. “Their sister”?? Are they all siblings? (Leila Lopes should have been out of the headline).
    Looks like Usman Dantata was one of the groomsmen.
    Looove the bridemaids dresses. Watch Nigerian brides and their friends copy and make tacky versions.
    I see Moyo, Shamo…where’s Ezinne Alfa?

    BN – at least clarify and tell people they are not full siblings. Nicole C (Chukwueke) ( is a step sister to Osi, Ijeoma is Osi’s actual sister…..

      You are wrong again.. Always “fact check” before you post. Nicole and Osi have the same mother!

    • Mewe

      May 4, 2015 at 3:56 pm

      Nicole and Osi have the same mother, different fathers
      Osi and Ijeoma have the same father, different mothers

      So Ijeoma is also Osi’s half sister.

    • Ebony

      May 4, 2015 at 5:33 pm

      Implying Ijeoma and Nicole do not have any parent in common?

      Also, Ijeoma and Osi have the same father, but different mothers. All in all, it was a BEAUTIFUL wedding! Congrats Uzo and Ije!

      Why is a clarification needed. sister in law is still sister. Step sister is still sister……Because you like division in your house doesn’t mean others do.

      What an uneducated comment by you. Don’t you know the difference between step and half siblings? Next time, be damn sure before you run your fingers.

      Nicole and Osi have the same mother Chinelo (sister of late senator Okadigbo) She is in yellow Asoebi next to Nicole in the pic. She is the mother of the oldest bro can’t remember his name, Nkem, dilly and Osi.
      The others have diff mothers, not sure how many kids total Igwe Umenyiora has but the kids are all unified. That itself is beautiful 🙂

    Mehn, I was at this couple’s trad wedding last December in Ogbunike Anambra and I can tell you, this bride fine die. Tall, fair and slim with a killer smile. These pics don’t even do her justice. She got the sexiness from her mom (the one in red Can you believe the woman is in her early sixties? Chai!

    I see a lot of “busy body” adding their 2 cents about step and half siblings. Who cares, they are one happy family attending a memorable function. PERIOD

    • Iris

      May 4, 2015 at 9:18 pm

      As in! As if if they had half sisters or step sisters they love, they would go out in public and say ‘this is my half sister’ in this Nigeria where you only have to be from the same village as someone to be labelled as their brother.

    May 4, 2015 at 9:06 pm

    Both women are beautiful. The Igwe has great taste in women. *winks*

    @Manny, Osi’ s father was married to Nicole’s mom. They divorced and Nicole’s mom married Chief Chukwueke with whom she had Nicole. Osi’s dad also moved on and married Ijeoma’s mom. Get it now? Lol

    The fact that the Enugu scoundrel “Unicco” became an Igwe reaffirms that anything is possible in Nigeria…

    See how a post of a wedding turned into family tree suggestions.Smh…who even asked to know who was who from whoever started this sef….Pls leave family tree drawings to the owner of the trees,not some people who ‘think’ they know them just because they live on thesame street with them….biko!
