First Look at Fatima Ganduje & Abolaji Ajimobi’s Arabian Themed Henna Party + Durbar Ceremony #Faaji2018



We love when cultures play a beautiful role in traditional wedding ceremonies in Nigeria.

Fatima Ganduje, who is the founder of Let’s Talk Humanity, a charitable organisation, is right now getting married to her love, Abolaji Ajimobi, who is an entrepreneur.

The couple had their Arabian themed Henna party, tagged Fatima’s Henna Playday, in Kano, captured by the talented George Okoro.

The groom, who is getting married to a Fatima, a princess, recently became a prince and had to ride around Kano with his groomsmen in true Durbar fashion. The Durbar ceremony was organized by the Emir of Kano.

The groom’s father is the Governor of Oyo State Abiola Ajimobi, and the bride is the daughter of Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, who is the Governor of Kano State.

      They always come together in marriage. When a Hausa/Fulani man/woman aren’t marrying themselves; then they usually marry the Yoruba’s. Beautiful culture, both. Lovely pictures. God bless them.

This is beautiful, wishing you guys nothing but the very best.

    Beautiful Alladinesque colours for the henna playdate.
    Is Ajimobi related to the Indimis of the north. Did Buhari’s daughter not marry an Indimi?
    He looks mixed..looks quite northern himself.
    Relationship bears in mind the old monarchial alliances. Politics, love, amongst the autocratic elites!

      Re-he looks mixed, yes. Mrs Ajimobi is half-Lebanese.

      I don’t know where they found the Indimi that Ajimobi has added to his name.

    Being a sickle cell patient is not a death sentence.

    I get your point, however the sickle cell part at the end of your comment was and is inappropriate and offensive.

    Congratulations to them. One question is he Muslim? I remember reading something that said his mother is Christian and the father is Muslim.

    I am so ashamed of you guys, China with its media censorship and ban of free speech would have been a better country for you to operate in. No wonder your website is littered with multiple posts but zero comments. Makes sense now.

    Beautiful everything, I wish the couple well. I also wish God blesses them with wisdom to advise their parents to spend this much time, energy and resources on the development of their states. Just imagine how improved public education, health and an enabling environment for business could transform both states.
