Funke Fowler
Last weekend, Funke Fowler of Leila Fowler boutique and Abi Kuku, Lagos big boy had their traditional wedding introduction.
The Kuku’s family with all the emblem of royalty from Ijebu Ode formally met that in-law last weekend in Parkview Estate, Ikoyi.
The groom is the son of eminent businessman and Ogbeni Oja of Ijebuland, Chief Adebayo Kuku. He is regarded as one of the richest and most influential Ijebu sons.
The first stage of Abi and Funke’s marriage was held in Funke’s grandma’s home inside the elitist Parkview Estate, Ikoyi.
Funke looked scintillating in a blue lace with white and silver accessories; while Abi was in his signature white.
Leila’s grand mother is the successful educationist. She runs  Vivian Fowler Memorial College for girls in Lagos. Funke’s father, Chief Babatunde Fowler is the Chairman of Lagos State Board on Internal revenue. He is said to be close to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other members of the Lagos political family. gathered that the two love birds decided to live the rest of their lives together and also set machinery in motion for their wedding , when Abi finally proposed to Leila in London.
It was during the famous Prince Harry and Kate Middleton royal wedding. Though they have been dating for sometime, we gathered Funke got the wedding proposal ring during that period.
The wedding will hold in Lagos and Dubai in November.
Meanwhile when the couple announced their engagement, lots of people criticized Funke that she’s an arrogant snob! Others believe she was greatly misunderstood.
Some are also of the opinion that she wanted to have a wedding that is low  key, that is why she didn’t let most people into the detail of the arrangement. That is certainly impossible said a Lagos boy, considering the prominence of  both families in their respective states.

    Hmmmm, just pray this young lady knows what shes doing. I hear Abi's sisters are not very nice! Beautiful bride though

    You're right, Abi's sisters are the typical 'iya oko' who don't take nonsense. Funke on the other hand is very arrogant…

    The colour combo is good. But sequined lace for intro is flamboyant, then that makeup doesn't do her justice.

  13. Hmmm...Lagos   July 11, 2011 at 9:53 pm

    I like the way she looks, always on point. She's not beautiful but, she's always perfectly groomed which makes her look attractive. Sequins during the day, normally a no-no but it is a special once in a lifetime event so I'd say she could get away with it if indeed this photo is for the introduction.

  18. wizzy   October 31, 2011 at 8:52 am

    People must to talk shaa…smh..congrats to the couple and wish them all the best in thier marriage

    She looks lovely though but for sequined lace just for introduction that is a bit too extravagant.

    Abi's sisters nawa ooo they would show her who is boss and funke would equally give it back to them as she is just as arrogant as Abi sisters. On the other hand, I do wonder what funke is doing with this old man as he has been round the block tooo many times.

    All the best to her to keep her marriage she would surely need that as once a womaniser always a womaniser as a leopard does not change its spot. Abi probabaly just cooled down just to do this wedding and get it out of the way. I rest my case!!!!
