      What kind of comment is this? Who told you Ubi doesn’t have a house? Na wa for some of you and the way you’ve been attacking this couple.

      @ Damilola it doesn’t cost to be happy for someone even if U DON’T know them. Well FYI, since u asked, they don’t have a house (Irony) Ur entire FAM can make it their responsibility to give them a house.. Ridiculous comment from an Orangutan called Dami..

      November 2, 2015 at 10:30 am

      Lol @ Note d I attended a Sunday wedding too. It was weird at first but later got ok. The bad part is folks gotta work on Monday & kids got school so u best believe ain’t nobody got party with U till 3am. By 8-9ish folks are leaving to be with their FAM or catch early morning flight.

    • Bad belle

      November 1, 2015 at 1:35 pm

      What difference does it make if you are married? Like being married means a person can’t be mean or envious. What a logic, jeez.

    • Lee

      November 1, 2015 at 1:38 pm

      She’s isn’t not rejoicing with them. She just simply said enough of Ubi and Lilian after this post of them. Truth be told, we’ve seen enough of them, at some point it actually gets tiring. Nothing about “hating” here. Anyways, HML.

    • Ebere

      November 1, 2015 at 2:05 pm

      Your name is “Bad Belle” and you say you are rejoicing with them………………I laugh in french and Spanish……….

      November 1, 2015 at 2:48 pm

      I’m sure you are smarter than this Ebere. Bad belle refers to the likes of you hun, abi na me dey shout “it’s enough” hehehe BN peeps 🙂

      @lee, but not one is forcing you to look at the picture. If you see that its a post about them move on, but you dont. You look at the pictures and comment. I dont understand why you are complaining, like just dont look if it annoys you that much. Geesh! bad belle people everywhere.

    • Lee

      November 1, 2015 at 4:27 pm

    Lilian is pregnant. that’s why they rushed everything. That’s why she’s wearing a ball gown instead of her usual body clinging cloth.
    Happy Married Life Ubi and Lilian.

      November 1, 2015 at 6:16 pm

      How was the wedding rushed? Since when did they get engaged? Doesn’t everyone now do trad the day before white? They even spaced it. At her court wedding last week that she wore a tight jumpsuit did she look pregnant?

    • Vanessa

      November 1, 2015 at 9:51 pm

      Your comment is very ignorant. You obviously know nothing about ball gowns, if not you’d know that it gives no room at the tummy area because of the corset, so you cannot be pregnant and wear a ball gown, except you want to abort the pregnancy. A-line maybe, but not ball gown!

    • ATL's finest

      November 1, 2015 at 11:16 pm

      @ 345cash! Ode even a blind man can tell from her bridal show outfit that she was pregos.. So it doesn’t make any difference. Even folks with pot belly that ain’t pregnant don’t even like to show any muffin top let alone her. Let her be made.. I love the dress @MYKINDofDRESS#

    It is such a shame that the photographs do not look professional and do not give justice to the unique event and beauty of the couple. With my Canon Eos700, i would have done better. Never mind, HML and congratulation on the pregnancy.

    shuu. they’re doing their thing, friends and family are posting their pictures, they put in on their IG page, blogs go and grab it..una dey say too much. what did they do out of the ordinary. its just that they’re celebrities. BN community, talk about yourselves. you’ll take your best wedding pictures and expensive photoshoot for us to see.(lol. cuz your not celebrities) so nobody gives a damn about your expensive wedding and IG page…you gorra do the work. I’m almost sure you do bridal shower and baby shower and the rest OR maybe change no remain after spending it on the ceremonies we’ll see. infact, recently on BN, I saw a baby photoshoot (very ridiculous) even if you wanted taking pictures, must we see it??? una dey talk about this one? l’n’u….more events pls. wish you the very best in your marriage jhor. no mind this hypocrites!

    Congratulations to Ubi and Lilian. May their love last a lifetime.

    Not a fan of lilians dress.
    The fit of osas dress is also somehow in the boobs area.
    Too much make up on some of the bridesmaids.

    I guess pple can rest with the insinuations a boffins lilian and linda Ejiofor fighting as Linda is a bridesmaid.

  24. Angel

    November 1, 2015 at 3:48 pm

    Ubi fall hand for that first kiss oo, his hand should be on her waist and not her shoulder lol *tongue out, just kidding.* Lillian is such a pretty bride! God bless, congratulations again..

    • Jenny

      November 2, 2015 at 6:00 am

      Lol…@Angel thank God I’m not the only one that recognized his hand on her shoulder. It made him look shorter than her in all their kissing photos plus no offense, Lilian looked adorable but I personally wasn’t feeling her wedding dress. It just didn’t look right to me. I expected something more form fitting with an elaborate or simple train that would have appreciated her figure more like how she looked in her reception dress. On the other hand if she wanted a ball gown I’m sure there were other options. Sha it’s her wedding and the Koko is that they are now married. Happy married life to the new couple.
