Ejiro Gbogunren and Olumide Owode,two lovers based in Australia had their traditional wedding in Warri,Delta State,Nigeria.
The introduction between the Owode Family of Ijebu-Ife,Ogun State and the Gbogunren family in Delta State took place on Friday 11 April 2008 while the traditional wedding proper took place on Saturday 12 April 2008.
It was an event of great glamour, elegance and style as the Urhobos and their in-laws try to outshine one another.The Urhobo said that they are the achitect of entertainment,the Ijebu laughed and really showed that they are the authentic commanders of ‘maximum’ enjoyment.The Ijebu storm the place with a long convoy of exotic cars.
The couple would soon host a wedding website and you can see the beauty of Nigeria’s rich culture.
Its sweet to fall in love.I feeeeeeeel like getting married too!
When I was much younger, I was so much in love with Mariah Carey (Please help me,is it love or lust).She was my music idol.It was my childhood fantasy to go to America someday and marry the musician.I just refused to believe that she was married at that time.However, I got so jealous immediately she released ‘Honey’ and she started showing off too much flesh.I got really mad because I felt she was flirting with other men.Well, I have forgiven Mariah Carey for making me go through that trauma.Now, I realised its a fantasy but I still love her songs to a fault.
