Again, Gbenga Alade, the managing director of GT Bank, UK, has ventured into the mysterious overland; that peculiar haven bordered by esplanades of secret treasures and colourful spokes of eternal delight.
Thanks to sweet heavenly grace, Gbenga has rediscovered bliss in ravishing belle, Yetunde Olufosoye; hardly anyone believed that Gbenga would find another love of his life so soon. To high society trolls, it is unbelievable, but to Gbenga, itâ€™s simply ethereal. To Gbenga, finding Yetunde is akin to beaming light through the surface of a brushwood that light never penetrated.
However, the ceremonies have ended. The husband has taken his wife home, savouring without restraints or inhibitions each otherâ€™s warmth and company, as the process of increasing Nigeriaâ€™s population is intensified. The wedding is still the talk of the town in Ibadan, even as you read. Like the early dew which moistens blooming bougainvillea, Yetunde rocks Nigeriaâ€™s high society with uncharacteristic verve and aplomb.
Being married to one of Nigeriaâ€™s rising bankers is by no means a criterion to throw gaudy wedding party, especially if you have a hubby that panders to such whims.
At reception, for the first dance, the groom, Gbenga, stared into the eyes of his bride, Yetunde, as if he meant to rediscover a familiar treasure trove. He stared into her eyes wondering how many wonders subsist in the two shiny orbs and windows into her soul. It was a charming, corny, over-the-top moment at an event most noteworthy, perhaps, for how it drew the crÃ¨me of Nigeria and Londonâ€™s high societies to celebrate with the new couple. Their wedding was classy!
