The ceremony which was officiated by Pastor Wale Adefarasin took place at the Guilding Light Assembly inside Parkview Estate, Ikoyi.
Gistmaster.com was there live to give you all the details.Dakore arrived the church about one hour after the groom had been comfortably seated and waiting for her. Professor Kasumu (SAN), former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon and other important dignitaries who are friends of the groom’s father were at the Church and they came early.
When it was apparent that the church service was coming to an event without anyone talking about you may kiss the bride, Olumide told the officiating pastor that he wants to formally kiss his wife. Everyone present laughed.
When the pastor finally announced that Olumide would like to kiss Dakore, the groom collected the bouquet of flower she was holding and after the giving her the kiss of her life, he returned the flower to her.
Gistmaster.com can tell you authoritatively that contrary to expectations none of her Dakore’s colleague in Nollywood was present at the Church service. Some of them later showed up at the reception.
