    The kind of beauty that oozes from the North, eh?

      They only show you the best. And these northern men know how to arrange their women very well simply based on beauty. There’s a lot of interracial/biracial in the north. These men show these women their Kudi and kondo these women just follow them easily. Many of them don’t care if they are second wife or in a non existent relationship but when it comes to lavish weddings they will go all out. My dad’s sister married Hausa/Fulani man, so my cousins pretty much were raised as Hausa. She got married in a lavish, extravagant wedding two years ago . But now, their marriage is just ok.

      Bella, post my comments. I don’t like how you didn’t post some of mine last time.

    This makeup artists can like to alter faces too much haba. She looked different in both pictures. Very very light in one and brown in the other. Choose one look next time @Mua. Congrats to the bride and groom. Pretty bride.

      It might be photoshop for the photographer and not necessarily the make up artist.

      Yeh, and BN why do we keeping seeing the same type of Weddings? Of all the tribes north of Nigeria, are you telling me that couples from other tribes don’t send in their weddings?

      Don’t get me wrong, I love all these hausa/fulani/kanuri weddings, but they’re becoming predictable. I’d like to see outdoor weddings of other northern tribes, eg Igala, Idoma. Plateau…

    Hmmmmm Northern brides now look stylish these days oh, dressing like other brides too. No more boring hijab these days oh, they now flaunt hudayyya couture gowns as trad outfits. Hmmmmm loving the civilization sha but the men still looks boring, still the same old kaftan or agbada with no mordern twist or swag.

      It’s too early to accuse him of stealing government money. Do your research and find out his wealth even before he became the governor of Jigawa

    Yes, BN. You don’t post as nuch weddings as you used to, now that you’ve gotten a bigger audience. Are your standards now too high? Please post weddings more often. That’s why some of us come here. And it seems if a person’s wedding is not over-the-top, no BN feature for them. Not fair.

      Go to Nigerianweddings or weddingdigestnaija, you don’t have to always visit BN only. Theres a lot of colorful Nigerian wedding blogs.
