      Laura Laura congratsooo. Looks like you are good at heart and simple cos very simple people show off this way despite criticisms. I wish you a happy marriage. Please try and learn from your sister Linda and Amara Kanu Nwanko, she stays away from controversy. Please learn from her, and please dramatise less.

      I hope you are not delusional? Are you sure you are not an mgbeke probably in self denial/deceit? Laura keep doing you. I love the fact that despite the negativity and hate you still come out strong. God bless your marriage abundantly. May your marriage stand the test of time. Bless!!

      The fact that you used the term ‘bush meat’ speaks volumes! Someone who abhors such females and claims to be unlike them, would have used ‘uncultured’/ ‘indecorous’ etc. to describe them, not ‘bush meat’. This, I believe, places you in the same category as what you perceive these women to be.

      Bleached out mgbeke. Later now, igbo people will say they are always light, they won’t mention that they have the largest bleaching market.

    My Igbo people in the house it’s a legit qst, why do most (>80%) of u guys always go to your village for traditional wedding. Just wondering.

    • Xristybabes

      January 27, 2017 at 7:01 pm

      Because that is our tradition

    • swizzle

      January 27, 2017 at 7:10 pm

      Because we know and acknowledge our roots. We stay in the cities and other countries but we still know where we come from. NB: That’s upwards of 90% by the way 😉

    • Okrika

      January 27, 2017 at 7:24 pm

      Because they have to go back to village and show off na. They build big money miss road houses there, they go there during xmas to flaunt the money they have sweated for the whole year, .They might as well go do their weddings there and flaunt some more.

    • Mr Chris

      January 28, 2017 at 1:23 pm

      @Okrika. Yes, we are Igbo, and very proud of that. We go back home seasonally to ‘show off”, because we have beautiful homes and beautiful villages to go back to……Unlike some people I know, who are forever trapped in Lagos because they have lost their ‘roots’. Try and get one of your Igbo friends to invite you home during one of our “mass returns”……Xmas, Easter, yam festivals…and you will see what our attachment to our homeland has done for us and what is all about. It engenders an enduring community/clan spirit, and it’s all good.

      what Kind of stupid question is that?

    • nene+

      January 27, 2017 at 9:30 pm

      @ okirika tueh! So much hatred. Envy kills fast! Igbo stay Lagos u vex, dem go village you still dey vex? Isn’t it clear that you are afraid ??

      Because traditionally the bride price is shared between the bride’s father and his kinsmen most of whom are usually not based in cities. Same applies to all the yams, tobacco snuff and all the things you see in the list down to the talcum powder…. things listed for the bride’s mum are also shared between her and the women of the land, married and unmarried. Each group has specific items they must partake of. In Igboland if the kinsmen do not receive these items and actually physically meet the people who brought them (inlaws) traditionally that lady is still single. But of course some people don’t send your recognition or non-recognition of their marriage…

      January 27, 2017 at 11:31 pm

      Kind of you to explain. That was a honest question from MurderSheWrote. I don’t know why some people couldn’t just answer.

      January 27, 2017 at 8:54 pm

      Hia! Because we know the importance of staying in touch with our roots.

      Like you I ask a lot of questions.

      Igbo Traditional wedding is how Igbos were marrying before western culture and Christianity came.
      Then, it took a whole community to raise a child, so when the girl child gets married, the whole kinsmen, partakes. ..no specific invitation required. Everything the groom brings is shared by the whole kinsmen, no matter how little each gets.

      Ideally, getting married begins from the groom, going to ” knock ” on the door with some family , a witness and / or a friend, with palm win which must be drank, even if the bride refuses outright, hence it called the ” lost win” ! Following that, there are several rights that are performed and the bride is allowes to change her mind, should she dislike the groom, including the bride price . Igbankwu ( wine carrying ) is the final ceremony. Once bride price and Igbankwu is done, if the bride changes her mind, it is treated as a divorce and the bride price alone, not goodies is returned to the groom.
      Today, people live far and wide, grooms come from far and wide, people don’t go back and forth anymore. As much as possible everything is done on the same day.
      Igbo Traditional marriage ceremony is not an engagement.
      You are considered fully married once it is done.
      Christians do white wedding because of their religious obligation.

      I was told that in ancient times, engagement was arranged by both families while the couple were still young and unaware of what took place. Both families kept check of the couple till they become old enough to marry.
      Disregard my typos. please …commuting and typing.

      Their are “omenala ” to be performed for the “umunna ” . I. e their are items on the list that needs to be given to the kindreds for the marriage to be complete, even if you leave abroad and can’t come home, you will send money and it will be performed on ur behalf. The same goes with a dead Igbo man, his corpse must reach home.

    • Mr Chris

      January 28, 2017 at 12:51 pm

      If you meet & marry any Igbo chick outside her village, that marriage is regarded as ‘mere friendship’, until you have gone to her people in her village where you and your people will be required to go through the traditional marriage rites. It doesn’t matter how many kids both of you would have had together, that relationship will only be deemed a proper marriage after the man has completed these rites and receives the blessing of his in~laws..

      January 27, 2017 at 7:22 pm

      Most parents in Nigeria would say if you don’t have anything good to say you keep your mouth closed ! That’s what you should have done . Bullying ppl behind your key board is cowardice . Pls clarify what razz means and what aye toro clan means ? This is how we force ppl to go out of their comfort zone to be who they are not . By every standard ur comment is actually the ayetoro comment .

    • Chichi

      January 27, 2017 at 11:20 pm

      [email protected], im sure the Ayetoro clan exist and there is absolutely nothing wrong with them. You’re slightly ignorant..your geography sucks thats all. They can be found in Ogun or Ekiti state..somewhere in the west but certainly not in imo state ?
      @ife, God bless you!

      lol what’s the obsession with being “classy” on BN? Coming to a blog that features the wedding and parties of rich people doesn’t make you classy..You still hold the same razz and backward opinions of the other blog commenters you insult, you just know how to punctuate. *ps never met a classy person obsessed with “class”. Always the wannabes

    • A Real Nigerian

      January 27, 2017 at 8:48 pm

      Hahahaja!
      BN and its cheesy, endlessly pretentious nonsense has managed to deceive most of its delusional visitors that it is a classy website that panders to the elite and exposed Nigerians. Hilarious!
      People coming on BN and feeling cool is the same as feeling like you’re something special because you visit Perez Hilton or TMZ. Like someone so aptly put – “BN is just LIB on lipstick”.
      It is absolutely tragic how Nigerians will look for the most obscure things to hold on to just because they need to fuel the falsehood and grand delusion of importance that make up their everyday life.

      BN, if you don’t delete my comment this time ehn. ?

      “Never met a classy person obsessed with class” SOUND IT!
      Exactly my point on the previous post..Yall throwing the word class up and down cos you see a pic of the couple on a bottle of water..lol..
      Classy people dont constantly look down on others..classy ppl arent disrespectful…classy ppl live and let live…only tacky ppl would leave the kinda comments im seeing here…so pls try harder guys..Work on yourselves first before you start looking for who is classy and who isnt..Im an avid reader of this blog but @anon and a real nigerian are absolutely right..
      Like i said before, the “classy” ppl want to be entertained..you better give them a good show tomorrow laura.. just have a blast tomorrow….your happiness is all that counts…Do not feel the need to impress petty ppl online…Congratulations!

      “BN is just LIB on lipstick”.
      So, is BN sitting or standing ON the lipstick?! It’s IN!

      Dear Nigerians, please stop this grammatical error! I see it constantly and it’s irritating.
      A person cannot be ON a blue dress, or ON curly hair, but rather IN them!

      Another error I see repeatedly is “I will be [insert age] BY July. That means you can be turning that age anytime from now until July. It’s IN!

      The third error is “We see every xx months”. What do you see every xx months? A lion, a person, snow? What? Adding ‘each other’ to that sentence will not kill you!
