    I will take it that the bride is pregnant, and they already fixed a date for the introduction, and in between, he decided to put a ring on it.
    Rakiya is a very beautiful woman, very very beautiful. George you be correct man ? congratulations

      Yes! After all the struggle, who wouldn’t have a stiff neck? Yeah belle don book George he got no option than to do sharp sharp. To me there wouldn’t have been the engagement since the intro is by the corner. All being said, congrats to Nwa afo Igbo. Na correct man wen get shaaap eyes.?

    It’s so nice to see more inter tribal marriages been accepted. This is love winning not the gay type of love wins.

      Not the first time I’ve heard it. Different strokes I guess!

      I thought she was from Kaduna? Anyways, the proposal could have been a surprise cos I’ve seen many cases where a couple already know they would eventually get married and start planning wedding but the guy just wants to give his babe the proposal experience.. A friend had already done intro sef before he remembered that he didn’t propose, We sha had to form beach party and he surprised her with a beautiful proposal (wedding plans were already on-going) babe teared up cos she never hexperrerit….

    This is what Yoruba’s call “papapa” as in sharp sharp. Guess this was all planned before the ‘surprise’ proposal. Probably there’s a bun in the oven. Congratulations guys. God bless your union

    I’m so confused o. Must she be pregnant to marry in few days?? What of the people that got married the same day. Ahn ahn abi if they have the money why won’t they do it. Y’all should mind your freaking business!


    October 9, 2016 at 10:33 am

    Them try, was thinking he was going to throw away millions of naira on the wedding. It looks normal if u ask me.?

    Lool all the pepper body people that hate to see extravagant weddings must be so happy now. From the last post someone actually asked if they would enter a marriage they prepared for. Didn’t know expensive weddings are more likely to be rubbish, As if all the (millions of) scandalous naija marriages all featured on BN. I don’t even know why we’re discussing her being pregnant or not. She’s pretty sha. HML

    Why are there no pics of the epic wedding of the year from umora16? You guys have been surprisingly quiet about this wedding no pics why? It is such a fairy-tale wedding.

    Why have you guys kept mum on the swoon worthy wedding of the year that happened over the past few days? No pics nothing. It was such a grand affair so why no pics? Abi una no dey do weddings ni?

    I don’t see chemistry between them, especially from the girl.

    Not being rude but how do these guys manage to get such beauties?! There has been so many weddings featured where the men are clearly punching above their weight. Ya I know looks are not everything just saying.

      Many of the women are not as beautiful in real life as they look in these pictures.
      All the face beating and retouched photos…
