Because it’s culture, because it’s tradition, they have the traditional wedding here in the country, in the homeland of the bride to be precise but when it comes to the white weddings, it’s most of the time taken out of the country.
Weddings like these though, actually become the talk of the town, as it’s being carried on so many blogs, social media outlets and more but it’s only the Creme de la creme that actually attend the wedding cause it’s being done abroad (where the wedding is holding).
This brings us to why YBL has compiled this list of Nigerian celebrities who had their weddings outside the country. While some of you may feel it’s unethical and not patriotic, some of y’all may think it’s actually cool cause of the environment and all…
As it’s a day to Valentine’s eve and we smell love everywhere, how about you feel the love in the next few pages of this post and at the end of it, drop your controversial comments… Okay?
1. Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro (New York U.S.A)
Tinsel sweethearts, Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro got married in what should be referred to as a breathtakingly romantic wedding ceremony.
As the event had the hustling city of New York on hold when they exchanged their vows at The Grand Prospect Hall, Brooklyn.
Quite an eventful ceremony which had distinguishing guests in attendance.
2. Damilola Adegbite and Chris Attoh (Ghana)
Another Tinsel sweethearts on our list!!! That MNet movie series really did some romance to the lives of their cast though!
Damilola Adegbite and Chris Attoh found love while on set of the award winning MNet soap opera and that love got em tying the knots few months later.
The actor actually popped the question on a boat cruise in Manhattan, New York City, USA, but they had the wedding ceremony in Ghana.
The actress looked simply angelic in her dress though. I personally, was in love with her! *smile*.
3. Tiwa Savage and Tunji Balogun (Dubai)
This sultry MAVIN‘s songstress tied the knots with her husband, Tunji Balogun AKA TeeBillz on the 10th of May, 2014, in Dubai.
They hosted loads of prestige guests at their wedding ceremony. The quite exuberant event had top Nigerian celebrities fly to Dubai to attend the ceremony and after images that emerged online, you can tell that the wedding was exotic.
4. Sonia Morales And IK Ogbonna (Belgrade, Serbia).
It was once posted on YBL on the love story of these two lovebirds, how it started with the actor wooing his Colombian bride on Social media (Instagram).
IK Ogbonna and his Colombian beauty, Sonia Morales got married in a very lowkey wedding in Belgrade, Serbia and didn’t have any of their celebrity friends with them at the ceremony.
The marriage is blessed with a baby.
5. Annie And TuFace Idibia (Dubai)
Nigerian music mogul, 2face Idibia got married to his long time beau, actress, Annie Idibia.
It was certainly a major talk when they had their ceremony in that expensive country called Dubai. Friends, family and presumably, foes (you dunno the heart of man), were there to felicitate with the couple.
The wedding filled with glamour took place at the beachside of the famous 5-Star Jumeirah Beach Resort in Dubai, in 2013.
7. Stephanie Okereke And Linus Idahosa (Paris, France)
Gorgeous business woman/Philanthropist/actress, Stephanie Okereke Linus, has the final place on our list!
In April 2012, the actress married Linus Idahosa in Paris, France, at a private wedding ceremony that was attended by members of her family and scores of Nollywood actresses and actors.
