Last weekend, the social blogospheres were set trending with radiating love storytelling and stunning photographs of Chidiogo, the fourth daughter of the former Director General of NAFDAC and former Information and Communication Minister, theÂ late Prof. Dora Akunyili, who hooked toÂ Canadian beau, Andrew Parr.
Chidiogo, a multilinguist, an author, speaker, and founder of She ROARs Africa, walked down the aisle with a stunning look in a custom wedding dress coupled with a Melanin headgear.
While Andrew, a performance coach for elite athletes, a professional golf player and an entrepreneur, looked dapper in white and well-tailored native attire.
The elated couple were solemnised at the Madonna Catholic Church, Agulu, Anambra State in the presence of the brideâ€™s father, SirÂ Chike Akunyili; groomâ€™s parents, the Governor of Anambra State, Dr. Willie Obiano, Igwe of Agulu and Olowu of Adazi, among friends and well-wishers.
Thereafter, the marriage traditional rites â€œIgba Nkwuâ€ took turn in the palatial Agulu country home of the brideâ€™s parent.
Yes, if readers would take anything as a resemblance of the late mother in the bride, that would not be farfetched one to trace as her brilliance and uniqueness in achieving excellent results at the end of the tunnel speaks into the ceremony in appreciative colours. The white Andrew and black Chidiogo in a choreographed dance steps left every guest present wowed until they bade the event goodbye.
Other dignitaries present were former governor Peter Obi, Senator Victor Umeh, Bianca Ojukwu, Sally Mbanefo, state Assembly members, local government chairmen, commissioners, academia, as well as top South-eastern politicians and business moguls.
Meanwhile, the Akunyilis had hosted them to a dinnerÂ on Thursday, whileÂ on Friday, the Canadian family alongside the Akunyilis paid a courtesy call on Governor Obiano at the State lounge and they were hosted to a welcome dinner that left the groom talking of relocating to Nigeria after they must have had another planned wedding reception Canada sometime in October.
