    Beautiful Naija brides. But why is there no Igbo bride here?

      So funny, if George okoro does the igbo bride, he feels his hausa/fulani friends will stop patronizing him, what a shame and he is igbo married to hausa though. Wonder shall never end. No mn can determine your progress. God will be God supreme. Judge yourself.

    I like the white one. I’m a tad disappointed my own tribe wasn’t represented though.

    BN, I am so disappointed that there was no representation of an Igbo bride. The Igbo’s got tradition too you know. Btw, lovely shoots.
