First Look: Zahra Buhari’s Bridal Shower #ZAhmed2016



President Muhammadu Buhari‘s daughter Zahra Buhari is getting married to Ahmed Indimi soon and celebrated her bridal shower on Tuesday.

It was planned and decorated by The Wedding Guru in Abuja, with games by Alfa Showers. Here was the mural on the wall that looked like chapter from a storybook for her friends –

“My lovely ladies,

Today we sip tea,

And share advise with our friend

As she embarks on a new chapter, 

In her life”

See the amazing decor!


The Bride!

The Bride!

    All i know is all these governors, head of state, presidents and elected officials who conveniently hold their daughters’ wedding, son’s wedding, and other such #expensive and #extravagant life events while in office/tenure, God dey oh and he is watching you in 3D while me as a concerned citizen all i can do is sip tea.

      i just have the worst feeling. it feels like nobody is advising her.. this girl is young.. to enter into such a family.. there is just something so off about the whole thing …

      trully God is watching.. These rich ppl will be making useless laws tht force other ppls children into that death trap that is Nysc.. yet their kids don’t even have to endure such torture. God is watching..

      I once asked a “correct Lagos babe” about that and she told me that the reason they do so is because when their parent is in power the cash and kind gifts they get are enormous from huge amounts of money to cars and houses etc from those looking for favors or wanting to stay in their powerful parent’s “good books” and can’t be compared to when their parent isn’t in power. So much so, that sometimes they even get so much more than they put out for the occasion, so it makes excellent financial sense for them to get married when their parent is in office!

      @Joke, seriously?? So na luxury them dey find abi? Then tomorrow, we wake up reading hot, juicy breaking news headlines on marriages that have crashed within a short period. At that moment what use are the cars, money and houses they received during the wedding? Marriage is not for all seriously, if people can’t prioritize the reason for getting into one. Save yourself the drama.

      December 14, 2016 at 5:50 am

      But is this really fair? If a person wants to get married, should they pause their life till their parent is ‘out of power’? It’s their luck abeg.

      Na wa for BN. First look without a picture of the bride (no the one on the wall doesn’t count). What was the rush?

    • Le coco

      December 14, 2016 at 6:17 am

      Because the planner was overzealous . she wanted us to know that she is the one planning the event . that’s why she even took a sexy photo conveniently by the wall that has Zahra’s pic..

      and as for getting married while parents are in office.. nobody says it is wrong.. bt this display of opulence when people are suffering is a bt tasteless.. and for a man that has been preaching about his patriotism.. where is it? Did this Zahra and her brother not just graduate from uni a few months ago? didn’t a new batch of corpers deploy to their respective states? why didn’t they join nà? so they r too big for nysc? bt it’s the rest of us who shld go there nd die abi.

      Lol! Reason why Buhari is trying so hard to keep the daughter’s wedding out of the public eye, he wants an in-house celebration. But how possible is that? Is that the wish of Zahra, Aisha and the Indimi’s? They want to show off by fire by force. Even the wedding invitation card has gotten to the internet. Lol! He cannot stop them and He knows he will receive heavy criticism on the extravagance of his daughter’s wedding amidst this recession. Kpele!

    Zahra I will still wish you a hapi married life inspite of the hardship your father has thrown this country into. There’s nothing that’s impossible for God, your father should remember that he will NOT be on the seat of power forever.

      BN I think you shld stop enabling these comments.
      Madam many people are single mother’s. I lost my dad at the age of 6, my mum never re-married. She raised me all by herself, no family support. Funnily she was also a hair stylist who eventually owned her shop and raised me with the proceeds.
      This ur unsolicited begging is becoming smthn else. You are able bodied? aint u ?There are so many things you can do to earn money. Pls stop with all dis pity party. We all have our problems.
      Start smthn with d money you already have. Even if its frying puff puff infront of ur house.

      That’s harsh! how do you know your mum didn’t at some point beg someone to assist? besides everyone is different, just because your mum went though it successfully doesn’t mean others can too.

      My problem is that this Esther’s story keeps changing. On another blog she said she needed the money to start a provision store and care for her 5 siblings and daughter, now she needs the money for something else. Just google her name and bank account, you’ll see that she has been begging on all the major Nigerian blogs and has been soliciting for funds on her twitter account since 2015. This is professional begging and there is something shady about it.

    • jayjay

      December 14, 2016 at 2:11 pm

      I get irritated when I see pple begging even in a blog post,stop all this begging please…a lot of Nigerians are facing hardship and trying to double their hassle instead of begging..Shameless beings

    • Mind Boggling

      December 14, 2016 at 8:52 pm

      But you have enough money to buy data, visit different blogs and keep posting abi. Seems like your begging is a full-time job. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw a beggar getting off the bus at 7am to take up his position by the traffic lights near my house. That’s when I realised begging is a 9-5 job for some people. The more people give, the more you think its ok to beg. Yes desperation can lead to begging, when people fall on unexpected hard times and just can’t find a way out, but when it becomes a full-time job it is no longer begging, that my friend is greed and laziness!!!

    Y’know something. The politicians may not have had to pay a dime for this. Who would not want the opportunity for their brand to get what could probably be the best marketing ever? Besides, Naija’s issue is not the visible leadership. Were they the ones doing MMM? The rot is in the middle and at the bottom but we keep focusing on the top. The only thing the top could do is cut those darn allowances

    • Engoz

      December 14, 2016 at 3:49 pm

      Wow Tunmi, you made a very poignant statement about the rot in the middle and bottom. I try not to define upper, middle and lower groups by distribution of wealth though but by thinking pattern. How I see it is there’s 1) the government, 2) for lack of a better description -few intellectuals caught in the middle 3) a majority mafia-like population (whether rich or poor). I think it’s Thomas Jefferson that said the government you elect is the government you deserve. I used to have problems with that statement, but after some introspection I have come to realize that Nigerian government is a reflection of the majority population in Nigeria. The mafia-like majority population thinking pattern enables the rot. It fanatically understands the world through its ethnic alliances or religion. The only leader it is most likely to respect must present itself with gangster traits. Morality is negotiable to them. It will sell its birthright for immediate pleasures. It is anti order, anti intellectualism and very disorganized in thought. Don’t be deceived by the stereotype that Nigerians love education, our curriculum is anti critical thinking. It prioritizes on regurgitating what you learnt and does not emphasize on innovation. Now there are the few in the middle that are caught between the the majority population and the government. In “there was a country”, Chinua Achebe cites that there was a mass exodus of these few who comprised of our intellectuals into the diaspora during the 80s/90s. Some were killed by the military. Some remained in Nigeria, but intellectualism was not prioritized on and was effectively destroyed by the military. So you now see this increase in a population that do not prioritize on intellectualism. Intellectuals are the ones who are most likely to criticize the government and keep them on their toes. They are less likely to be bought because they are not seeking immediate pleasures, but is thinking on a future basis. So you have a country where these few are helpless. They will protest but the majority population will rule in Nigeria. Our government is the reflection of the majority population. I have made peace with it, that this population can have Nigeria. But if there are people who still have hope in that country, I just want to say the war is more mental than physical. Our educational system needs a complete overhaul. The war should be taken to academic institutions. The next generation of children must think differently for there to be a silver lining in the cloud.

    • tunmi

      December 14, 2016 at 7:03 pm

      Thank you. That’s the realization I’ve come to conclude about Nigeria. I romantically thought it was the govt and only the govt while forgetting that Nigerians are the govt. I was willing to wash the general population from the sins of corruption while ignoring that the same population upholds and supports corruption whether directly or indirectly. But now I get it. It’s the same reason I sympathize with those who did MMM. Those who don’t know where their next meal is coming from cannot think about tomorrow. It’s sad

There is nothing you or your father will do or say to satisfy bitter Nigerians even if the wedding has a demeanor of a pauper they would ask ” why serve beef and not egg” if many of these critics had the opportunity, they would do lavish and extravagnt weddings .Enjoy your wedding hunnay the experience is once in a lifetime ??

    GEJ’s daughter got married when he was president and people weren’t this hateful/bitter/malicious towards them becos 1, the economy was not in recession and their “lavish” ceremony did not seem as far fetched. 2, you don’t see his daughters coming on the internet talking sht like the federal republic was her father’s personal company. 3, lets face it, that family was more relatable.

    Personally, this chic could wed on the bloody moon all I care, I’m just here trying to be be successful (against her father’s devices), but there’s something rotten in this wedding right here and nobody who looks at these pictures could deny it to themselves.

  16. Ifeyinwa Atuanya

    http://Www.BellaNaija.Com said, first look, so more pictures are coming.

    Even people that are not in power still throw expensive bridal showers for their daughters.

    I am not a rich person. So I am not speaking on behalf of rich people. But I can’t envy rich people. Because many of them make sacrifices the average person may not make. I am not talking about rituals. I mean being smart with money. Having accountants, financial planners, investments, and it is not always Brazilian weaves and expensive shoes. Sometimes, it could be having a shop at the markets and having restaurants, even bukas.

    So, maybe it is a lesson to learn. The rich people also say, advice, persistence, drive, determination contributes to riches, and above – all, God in Heaven.

That’s what I call desperation. He needs to take care of his old self & do the grandpa duties. So I knew he wasn’t going to do JACK. Take a look at fly fare from here to Nigeria. Even calling cards increased their rates all bcuz of the economy in Nig ( so they said). Well every man for themselves & still I hear folks saying “come back to Nig & life’s good).
