Nigerian grand wedding where cars were allegedly given as souvenirs

Tagged Ehiken2017, a wedding, which held on Saturday, rocked Benin City, the Edo State capital.

The extravagant nuptial appears to be taking the shine off Banky W and Adesua Etomi’s wedding on account of the sheer opulence and grand scale. It trended on Instagram on Sunday evening.

The bride, Lagos-based Ehizogie Ogbebor, the CEO of Sayaveth Interiors and Hotel, got married to an Ijaw millionaire, Kenneth Bramor, at the Esteem Event Centre in Benin.

The highlight of the wedding was when the couple presented two cars (Toyota Camry) and declared it would be given as souvenirs to lucky winners of a raffle draw at the traditional wedding reception.

The identity of the lucky beneficiaries has been kept under wraps but the bride did confirm that two cars were handed out at her wedding. Guests also got iPhone X as souvenirs.

Congrats to the two lucky winners of the CARS #ehiken2017 raffle draw….

The bride has also showed off the money (hard currencies) realised from her wedding on Sunday.

From when the bride got a proposal few weeks ago (the first proposal after 10 years of being a divorcee with two kids) to planning, Instagram community was on heat.

Photos of the bride going to source for ‘aso ebi’, and that of her pre-wedding activities flooded her timelines. Complimentary aso-ebi worth N150,000 were given to 200 friends for free. Complimentary rides, according to the bride (Camry’s and corollas) were also available on the 17th for conveying guests that wanted to go by road to Benin.

    And after we go say hardship dey for the country.dem really try well well for their age

    Namba three. Children in absolute confusion. Step brothers, sisters, half brothers, sisters, step father and mother, and many more.
    My counsel to young people beware where you go. Some come into marriage carrying the agony of divided parenting as default life model. Most never get out of bitterness and schemings all of their lives.
    A spouse could become a victim of such background somewhere along the line in some cases.
    Those who do not like my position on this, should do well to keep their marriages, which we all know is not easy, rather than have some people from peaceful home become victim of indiscretion in marriage.
    I read the woamn say “i go hear word for this one”. Make she nor hear word, after she don carry her children into Fuji house of commotion – multiple parenthood.

    A couple of “money miss road”. Next time you are buying furniture in Lagos, it would wise not to go upstairs to Madam’s office. Better still, refuse if they offer you coconut rice 🙂

    God help us in this country. I am ashamed of this country and the type of money bags we have, and people are suffering around each and everyone of them.
