In a Channel 5 documentary, ‘How The Other Half Lives’, the hosts interviewed Betty Irabor of Genevieve Magazine and Elohor Elizabeth Aisien of Prive Luxury Events (they planned Tiwa Savage‘s Dubai white wedding) about lavish Nigerian weddings.

Betty Irabor & Elizabeth Elohor Aisien on How The Other Half Lives

Betty Irabor & Elizabeth Elohor Aisien on ‘How The Other Half Lives’

In the same episode, airing tonight at 9pm in the UK, a Nigerian couple share their reception at a five star hotel in London.

Daily Mail reported the quotes from the interview,

On Nigerian Weddings being a ‘Competition’
‘It’s a competition, people want something like “wow, she arrived by plane”. The bride wants to look good and wear the best of everything.’ said Elohor.

As a result, she said brides will pay around £100,000 for a bespoke dress by a designer like Vera Wang and £475,000 on diamond jewellery.

‘The other women want to make a statement, “I wore this diamond, my diamond is bigger than yours”,’ Elohor Elizabeth Aisien explained.

Out of This World Booze & Gift Budgets
Elohor added, ‘They will spend the most money on Champagne as you have two to three thousand guests at a traditional Nigerian wedding and they will get a bottle of Champagne each.’

This means at an average Nigerian wedding, £150,000 will be spent on booze.

While at British weddings, attendees may get a token favour like a chocolate, at affluent Nigerian weddings, they will get a gift bag worth £6,000.

Such a bag might contain a £345 perfume, a cashmere scarf worth £350 and a £5,000 watch.

If you’re in the UK, you can catch the episode at 9pm on Channel 5 tonight!

    You both fu-ed up

    £150,000 will be spent on booze.?
    a gift bag worth £6,000.?
    £345 perfume?
    £5,000 watch.?
    a cashmere scarf worth £350 ?

    How many weddings have you been that you got that? Or is it at your wedding that gift bag was shared?

    Probably you mean 1 out of 1,000 weddings.
    How does 1 out of 1,000 weddings equate “How the other Half lives”

    FYI only 10% of the whole population belong to the high class.
    40% in the middle class
    and 50% in the lower class

    Stop painting Nigeria bad outside. If a well thinking white sees this now, they will wonder why you all want to die coming to their country when you have this to spend on wedding of just one day

      Honestly this is a very bad and totally irresponsible thing to say to the media, and to do for our country .. Who has 3thousand guests at a wedding with each getting a bottle of champagne. we are already in ill standing, why then do we need responsible people that are meant to be acclaimed professionals to say this sort of thing. How about highlighting the plight of the every day Nigerian and maybe bring to light the general population wedding. I am highly vexed and disappointed at this type of reporting and so called journalism. I sincerely hope Madam Elohor comes to realise that she erred big time here o!

      same reference has “90% of Africans still fall below the threshold of $10 a day” $10 a day at N200 to a dollar is about 60k per month. That may be true in a wealthy city like Lagos. Outside the cities, you might find a lot of people sharing that 60k.
      What is champagne?

      The typical Nigerian thinks shallow articles like these are a thing of pride. What an embarrassment! Just affirms what I have always known…the rich in Nigeria is seriously out of touch with Nigeria’s reality and articles like this are a slap to every struggling Nigerian out there who makes up the majority of our populace. You even said the middle class is at 40%…that is generous. The middle class is almost non-existent. What should constitute as middle class in Nigeria escaped into the diaspora in the 80’s and 90’s and many till date are still escaping due to frustrating economic policies brought on by this criminal elite. Have you noticed, rich nigerian kids school abroad and then go back home, it is the poor and middle class that do everything within our power to remain in the UK or the US, because we know we don’t have one daddy or granddaddy that has held Nigerians to ransom for years to offer us a job when we go back home. Even if you want to try your best, the harsh economic realities would frustrate you out of that country. Nigerians in America are doing well, everywhere I go I hear good reports about Nigerians here. When I was job hunting and I mention I’m Nigerian, the interviewer would say favorable things about Nigerians he came across in his field. I’m proud of that because I know how many of us were frustrated out of that country. I’m more impressed by stories like that than this outright garrulousness.

      Of I can’t wait for the ‘is it your money’ crew? Doesn’t change the fact that this reeks of stupidity and veers on the tentacles of idiocy.

      When I was reading this all I was thinking was that’s a lie. Come on! That’s a big lie. Haaa Elohor can lie oh.
      Which traditional wedding has she seen 3,000 guests? Every guest get a bottle of which champagne? £5,000 watch in gift bag? Because trays have finished in the market? Elohor fear God oh.

      I’m watching it right now. The narrator said …”I suppose it’s good for the economy that all this foreign cash is coming here…” Nigerians will never learn. The same people who will call you a criminal to your face. You can’t even use a credit card on board flights to Nigeria.

      You provide some much needed context. I read the article on the DM and it was evident they were exaggerating and sensationalising. The comments were even more annoying e.g. Brits complaining that their aid money (as if Nigeria’s economy is dead) was being used to pay for lavish weddings in the UK etc. etc.

    • Blah blah

      October 30, 2015 at 4:02 pm

      10% OF THE population
      Far lower than that may be less than 0.5% which is about 750,000 Nigerians
      Ask me even in the live of Bellanaija have they featured upto 200,000 wedding? Nope

      This lady Elohor is so unpatriotic
      She was the one that also gave the whole details of a bride scouting for her wedding dress sometime pass
      EFCC please tell her to give you evidence and trace those people

    This is good for the UK economy Not to even talk of the thousands of Nigerian students schooling in the UK at both undergrad and postgrad level.. Nigerians dey spend sha. I remember once seeing a Nigerian woman speaking yoruba in selfridges at oxford street. This woman was in front of me at the checkout, her bill was about 21,000 pounds , She dipped her hand in her bag and paid in cash. Four bundles of 50 pound notes. The babe at the till called the manager and i just shifted to another checkout with my 100 pound gift card jejely. Nigerians dey ball hard. Even in Harrods, na so so Naija people. Nigerians are also among the biggest spenders in the London Property Market. All in All, it is a blessing for the UK economy

      You will find plenty of rich Nigerian men at Hilton Metropole on Edgeware Road, Hilton in Paddington & Hilton (Park lane). In the evening, you will find Nigerian ladies in reception pretending to be waiting for someone while hoping and praying to catch the eye of a Nigerian Politician or a rich Nigerian man

    These numbers are real?! 100,000 pounds on a dress?! 15000 I will believe but 100???? And these are regular amounts for rich people in Nigeria? Then things are worse than I thought. This has gone beyond a matter of ‘it’s my money. I will spend it’. This is obscene.

    Lmao……you need to see the comments on daily mail guys. When I read this earlier I was like this people cannot be real. The comments were saying that is where all their foreign aid money goes to……smh. I wanted to reply but I spoke patience to my fingers. Foreign aid from IMF I know, from UK? Me thinks not. These people will continue to make us laughing stocks not with ridiculous interviews like these. Is it because they heard that they shared iPhone at GEJ’s daughter’s wedding? How many people really do this? You people should fear God o. Haba.

      I heard about that wedding, though. Wasn’t it the one where the choir from RCCG House of Praise in Charlton was flown to (whatever country it was – Lebanon? Somewhere or the other) from the UK and back to sing at the wedding? Had a heated argument with my friend about the matter because there is no way in HECK that a State Governor is able to prove he spent strictly legit money on that sort of lavish affair.

    Unfortunately Betty and Elohor either wanted to exaggerate for effect or they have lost touch with reality. Please don’t talk about “the average”. An average in a bell distribution of all weddings (and I believe the assumption of Such a distribution holds true for Nigerians as a result of our culture) means the median = mean. ie, according to you, 50% of all weddings in Nigeria, including the weddings among the throttled working class expend $150k on booze and £6000 on gift bags! I am surprised both of you were not challenged on the veracity of the information by your hosts. Unfortunate for both of you to join and promote the endless celebration of abrasive and infinitely reckless lifestyles of the rich in Nigeria, which given their main sources of wealth -privilege and power.- amounts to kicking the desperate and constantly under dogged on whose collective wealth they feast, while they lie writhing in pain for which there is no hope.

    These women are such bloody liars!!! I have been to a few of the “high class” weddings and even though they have expensive gift bags, it is definitely not for every guest, just for the VVIPs that attend, which amounts to like 10-15 people. £150,000 on booze? Come on people!!! The rich spend about that amount on the entire wedding, not just the booze. Why did these heifers lie like that??

    Now, one girl will see this and be giving her boo problems because she also wants an £100,000 dress or a £5000 bottle of champagne to each guest. I am a wedding planner focused on just budget weddings in Nigeria and from my experience so far, more than 60% of Nigerians are average living people. And we have planned weddings with N500,000 (naira oo) for the whole wedding, so in my opinion, spending just £100,000 on a dress is a little extravagant if you ask me.

    Bellanaijarians, its 9pm and the show is on now. The documentary is about the world’s super billionaires from Russia, Africa and from all around the world who come to London to spend money.

    So they are featuring the top 1% of the world’s super billionaire

    Daily Mail reported garbage.
    According to Tatler, every third of a pound spent in Harrods is spent by a Nigerian. Plus the documentary states that Nigerians have overtaken the Russians.

    Everyone, have you seen Betty Irabor”s face. Plastic surgery or botox?
    Also, Elohor did not say $1 million for Elie Saab, the commentator said celebs like Mariah Carey wore Elie Saab, with 1 such gown reported to have cost $1 million.

    Again, Daily Mail twisted every thing. #Situationreport

      Daily Fail. The programme was dour. Good I had football on my TV and watched it on my tablet.

      Old news about the Editor and her stretched + puffy face. My husband said “ki re.”

      Elohor and her networking.

    Ok so the show has aired and i watched it, Elohor lied .. Number one you are not a top wedding planner to the wealthy, you dont even have up t0 five weddings you have covered in your portofolio. Secondly if you have ever covered a wedding that cost between 500k pounds – 1 million pounds, we will know because you would have bought a house next to linda ikeji and put it on instagram. thirdly which wedding have u covered that it was one bottle of champs per guest.The Interview was extremely poor, who is going to even want to engage your services please now that you have shown you lack confidentiailty … i mean a statement such as a brides mum asked why her diamond is bigger than her childs or vice versa was so uneccessary… the interview was so poor and i am surprised Betty irabor even involved herself with such a farce. This desperation for popularity is just insane i mean such lies, i hope Efcc calls you in for questioning so you can explain who this your imaginary clients are…Girl u need to stop lying and being a national embarassement … 5k pounds watch, girl please .. girl stop.. girl bye

    I Watched it as well . Daily mail reporters do not have sense. Eloho actually spoke well and they spoke about other wealthy countries. I was expecting more about Nigeria from this article

    I also thought some of the comments she made were so unproffessional and unnecessary. You need to look at the presenter’s facial expression. More like ‘yeah it’s ok to hype, you only get one chance’. I think she needs to work on her public speaking.

    Singing that viral song to Elohor
    ??????Elohor why lieing, Why you f- losing, Oh ma gahd, Why you f- lieing????????

    Shame on you,I knew she was full of shit by her uppity luxury bullshyt she displays on IG with many stolen pictures from western luxury brands. Luxury this, luxury that . Sweetie, the world luxury brands don’t even say the word luxury, cos you just know(eg, Hermes, Gucci. Etc).

    See how you have disgraced yourself and lost all credibility with the lilyou had left. Lieing for the whole world . Now we all know how Fake you are. And please don’t put this embarrassing lieing interview on your resume

    Dear Elohor, you need to go to MFM. You have haters.

    Just reading all the comments, why can’t women just be positive. I watched the interview with my friends and it was obvious that these two women were in town and was called to be a part of the show. They looked like they were given a script.
    Elohor is new in the industry and has done a few top weddings. `I guess its good publicity for her company.
    What was Betty doing there? She did not say much.
    She never said she covered 500k wedding, she said some of the wealthy weddings can be up to that. I don’t think she promoted us in a negative way, because Nigerians do spend a lot of money on weddings and they spoke about other countries in a positive way.

    My sister got married last year November and boy did we spend.

    You sound like a child. So if I am the planner for a wedding costing about 300,000 naira- I will make 500 million naira abi? 1 sixth of the client’s money?

    As for those saying she does not have a lot of weddings in her portfolio- she does not need to- because she just positioned her self to get that portfolio from the Nigerian rich around North London.

    Elohor, should you read this, I am in London and I have services that complement your clients.

    Haba, haba, haba,…let us fear God oo…..one of the weddings featured on this program….I WAS THERE!!!! This wedding was a result of these families jhard earned money and no where near £500k pounds….young couple wey God butter their bread. Apparently, they did not even know they were on this spin programme.

    I was among those who consumed the most alcohol on the day – wedding at an exotic farm in Essex – we were drinking Origin and normal MOET……I didn’t see any overly expensive drink on the tables.

    And these idiots opening their guts to DailyMail like it’s some breakthrough mag….na wa oo!!

    Is this what Nigerians are being reduced to?

    Shame! Shame!! Shame!!!

    This is all crap.£100,000 on a wedding dress? Even couture designer wedding dresses retail for £30,000. Kate Middleton’s dress cost £60,000. Who are these nigerians that have stolen soo much that they can afford this? The interview is absolute rubbish. Goody bags for £6,000? That’s 2million naira per bag. Do the maths, this entire episode is based on here say of a couple of people and thay can not speak for even the said 10% of the weather nigerians.

    Have always noticed that Elohor or whatever her name is, is just too proud. I guess maybe she has done one or two celebrity event, she has classified herself as luxury. Nne, please come and stay in LA for few months. When you see luxury, you will shut up!!! Abi its cos you did Tiwa wedding and baby shower you have become luxury??? Absolute TRASH!

    As for Ms. Betty, I expected more from you!!! How can you follow Ms Luxury and tarnish our already falling economy like this??? You are seen as a big aunt but i’m sorry to say, that RESPECT IS GONE!!! Maybe your luxury friend can take you to perform a luxury surgery to your face at a luxury surgeon’s luxury hospital for luxurious people!!!
