    Congrats nurse Abi & Ubi, God bless your union.. Shouldn’t their mothers names too be on the IV? You know, like Mr & Mrs, Pastor & Pastor(Mrs) etc .. Maybe its their culture tho, never seen only the fathers names before..

    October 15, 2015 at 5:08 pm

    Am I the only one not feeling this couple? Ubi is SUPER RUDE….Lilian is in love with the idea of being married to the mega rich triple mg boss but she’s not in love with him…the foundation not solid(emma nyra wahala)…the posing and forming unreal(using people’s houses for introduction hian!!!)
    P.S DID ANYONE READ THAT ARTICLE WHERE THEY ASKED HER ABOUT HER REASONS FOR FALLING IN LOVE WITH UBI….DID ANYONE SEE THE ANSWERS??? SUPER SHALLOW! Anyways I still wish y’all the best of luck hopefully a divorce doesn’t pop up in our face

      October 15, 2015 at 6:03 pm

      please share your own deep reasons for falling in love with your SO. I bet you don’t have anyone anyway. Madam expert in foundations, smh. If she borrows her gown, ring, everything, how is that your business? And how dare you mention divorce under a marriage post. Is that how sad your life is? People really need to buy sense abeg #SoAnnoying

      Erm..Ubi and Lillian, congrats, ok?! God bless and protect your home. Love the creative invites.

      Uncle sabi…Emma Nyra wahala? Why?
      How long would it take Naija babes to realize that boy friends do not always have to marry their girlfriends.
      The whole idea of courting is to know if two of you are compatible.
      If the answer is no, move on, for Christ’s sake.!!!

    Lilian is a gold digger who has made the mistake of digging in the garden of someone who lives a lavish life on borrowed money!
    Good luck to both of them I hope ubi doesn’t beat her… Again! Not until she’s able to grab every penny she came looking for #HungryGirl

    And that Emma Nyra is on instagram looking pitiful, poor woman! Ubi obviously took Emma’s stylist and gave it to Lilian who looks completely different leaving Emma to continue looking her usual trashy self! Smh

    Lilian is much more beautiful without the nail claws..34inches wigs and too much makeup. Lilian if you’re reading this you’re more beautiful with less.this only makes you look way older than ubi. Now to inyanya I can feel the pressure you get this moment to propose to aunty freda. If u love her don’t look Uche face o

  23. meah

    October 15, 2015 at 7:39 pm

    What crime did Lilian commit
    Is it because she didn’t end up with a prince?

    What do some peeps have against this couple?
    When it was dolapo its was “awww” and “so cute” i saw even when we know she is not pretty
    face NO, shape NO
    I even saw the “so much chemistry” comment lol
    I wonder how people can see someones future through a picture
    Now is lilian and all i see is divorce talk here and there
    Abeg if they are not your favorite couple which is very allowed then ignore anything about them

    • Rachel

      October 16, 2015 at 1:04 pm

      @meah, God bless you a thousand times, i don’t know y people ave issues with this couple. Is not about a prince charming, wealthy guy, TDH but is all about peace of mind. Like Lilian said in him she found PEACE. Pls let this people be. God bless their union and grant them peace beyond human understanding.

    Introduction, pre-wedding photo shoot, now court wedding then trad &white wedding. Nawa oo! Una no dey tired! that’s was how after everything osas &gbenro still did thank-you-for-coming party. Somebody will now come and say its their money let them spend it. Mtchewww , unnecessarily competition & attention seeking. Anything to be in the news.

  27. Call me bitter..... I don't curr

    October 15, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Ubi the FRAUDSTER if you want this marriage to be a blessing pay what you owe. Otherwise it’ll be a curse. I feel sorry for lilian cos she’ll be the one to suffer a second embarrassment. You cannot enrich urself on other people’s sweat. Go n pay the next time I come o hear I’ll say the full story for the world to know what kind of person you are. Thief, borrow borrow make me rich. I know you’ll go to your ig n write stupid write ups. We shall see who will laugh last. When you were collecting the money from my friend your mouth was running wild. Now u r talking trash. Y u go hide when dem lock ur place up you dint put it out abi. Whether u like it or not you won’t go unpunished either you pay up or face the law you’ll see. I hope you’ve apologised to your friend. Your stupidity led to his using cab home. U don run marry big gurl. Like someone said hope u can maintain her. N on ur sweat not borrow borrow. I’ll b back stella to give u full gist n also evidence to back up my claim. The case is on…..

    • Dididididi

      October 15, 2015 at 8:57 pm

      But this isnt stellas blog… Well u know the problems you have with Ubi.. Give us d gist shaa if you can.
      But at the same time Im wishing them all the best. Shes a very pretty woman and seems happy.

    • sweet

      October 16, 2015 at 8:24 pm

      Who is this bitter idiot, no be ur money dem borrow…abi ur friend money na ur own???

  28. Ni

    October 15, 2015 at 8:45 pm

    It’s funny how most of the haters would hook up with him or even snatch him in a heartbeat. Smh!

    • nnenne

      October 15, 2015 at 10:41 pm

      Ni, don’t worry if Lilian is a true Igbo woman and both truly love each other, she can handle it.
      Even if Ubi, isn’t that rich, they will make it through. We got the perseverance and the power! Just hope Ubi is nice, matured and focused.

    • Tomilola

      October 16, 2015 at 10:20 am

      Tribalism just had to come in this somehow, “if Lilian is a true Igbo woman”. Whatever happened to being just a woman (without the Igbo label) or is it just Igbo women who can handle pressure in marriage? I don’t understand why people do not see that they need to resist the urge to attach tribe to every statement.

    • Shan pepe

      October 16, 2015 at 1:06 pm

      Tomilola you like trouble sha. Which tribalism? Did she insult any tribe? It’s like me saying “as a true Nigerian I cannot fail my exams in uni”. Does that mean I’m insulting the Caucasians in my school? Na wa. You just want to turn this post around to something else abi?

  29. AmeboWillKillYou

    October 15, 2015 at 11:49 pm

    Why does all of this make me think of DonJazzy, and how I can’t wait to see him married. Oh the joy of quietness…

  30. glowy

    October 16, 2015 at 8:40 am

    Ubi is not mega rich anything

  31. hey!

    October 16, 2015 at 8:45 am

    Omoh! very soon some of us may have to stop visiting blogs o! U guys messsing with my head bad bad! Negativity upandan? Over sabi upandan like your life is perfect? Ubi borrowed money from your friend, are u d friend? So u may nt know d whole of it, toke wore similar dress n was sharing d pictures? N dis is d perfect occasion for it, Haba! U had to bring Toke into dis and blame her cos some wore wat she already wore? Lilian is a gold digger, she wants to marry a footballer,a prince, ehn? Did Lilian tell u dat her self? Or has she always been dating rich guys? What if it just happens so? No chemistry, no love, he’s just lucky, Emma nyra dis Emma nyra dat, please,people of d world, would you feel better if this people u seriously want to kill decide to help u commit suicide and die? Sometimes I fear that some of u would jam toke on the road and beat her up one of dis days! D idea of if you are a celebrity u have given people d right to tear u apart is a lie lie ideology we ourselves formed to back up our unnecessary scrutiny! Is they anyone who dosent have pictures on their bbm,face book,instagram,paGes? People display dia kids, food, clothes, gifts,spouses, siblings, everything, bt when a celebrity does it, Its a sin! Many oda celebs doing more dan toke, Ubi,inyanya, Lilian do, bt no one notices dem, n u guys n bellaa naija share in dis blame too, because u chose to features some celebs cos u know people wud b attracted and hate on dem n say all sorts! I visit blogs with d intention to learn primarily, get informed and laugh too, some time ago it would just be constructive jibes and calling out, n u would notice d joke in it all, formerly someone would go through pictures, give funny analysis of almost everyone, and we would just lagff and move on, dis days some people would say somethings and even me whose just aa reader would want to have high BP! Others would start giving people instructions like they own them, or tearing them down like they are gods or are too perfect? Are we not all living in dis saame world again? Are the rules of engagements in life different? Are celebs different species from us? What do they do that people don’t do? Doess toke send her pictures to bellanaija to be featured? How exactly has toke and other celebs u have given yourselves d right Tear down thrown dia pictures n life at your faces? Co’s they have instagram, bbm,facebook accounts? Vlogs? or cos they attend events? Maybe I should have sent dis as an email, bt am sorry I had to write dis long, abeg, we can still be happy and entertained without d insults and over reading of other people’s life, I know it’s difficult out there bt life is still worth fighting for, do your own thing and god would bless u, I don’t expect dis epistle to make everyone change, bt am hoping we can still tone down d tempo of d insults,unnecessary assumptions and over analysing of people featured here. Thanks for your time.

    hmmmm congrats to the couple + reading comments

  34. Tomilola

    October 16, 2015 at 6:54 pm

    Shan Pepe yes in a very sensitive country like Nigeria and on a post where she didn’t have to put the tribe before her comment, that’s tribalist. Meanwhile idon’t have intentions to begin anything, you’d have seen that clearly if you weren’t obsessed with making a point that wasn’t all that sensible.

    October 16, 2015 at 7:59 pm

    I like the invitation card. It’s beautiful.

    October 17, 2015 at 10:24 am

    Dear Lilian
    I just tried to put myself in your shoes while reading some of the comments here and it hurts so much but then again I realized that there are opinions that should matter most. They are that of the Almighty and your family. If God has not condemned u or talked trash about u, then it is alright. If your family accepted ur choice and gave u their blessings then allizwell. Go ahead and be happy with your man. Don’t let comments of inconsequential people be a base for your plans and decisions. God created haters for a reason, which I am yet to know though, but you know you can’t satisfy everyone. So go on and plan your wedding and your marriage. May your marriage be filled with laughter.
