You should read Part 1 here to put this in context…
Before you proceed…
The village ceremony started somewhat late but lasted for like 30mins and in the mean time, I took some pictures.
At first, my Booski was not dancing well
and then wham, it looked like something hit her and she let lose. She danced and danced and danced.
The person singing was singing Ada Ada. Before the, I actually didn’t know it was a real song by Flavor. I thought the guy was just free styling. Lool. She danced and I was so proud of her. And she had attitude to the dance. Cool yo!!!
Then she danced to where her hubby was
and they did the ‘feed each other’ after small talk by the Elders
which is the joining in itself and then wham they are traditionally married.
The couple’s dance followed
(There was no competition at all as we can’t call what Tony did dancing. Lol)
And after the dance, we were good to hit ‘town’ for the reception.
Incase anyone was wondering, I did not dance. I didnt wanna share the spot light with her on her day… Plus these pictures didn’t take themselves by themselves na…
So the reception started as soon as we hit town from villa… She quickly changed into a matching outfit with the Groom…
It was a PDP rally walahi. As in, someone would come in and the ceremony would stop until the person has gone round ‘ime mkpotu’ Kai…
It was good to catch up with the Feddy girls that showed up sha… And then meeting people too that came from Ibadan.
I was to talk about the cake but I was busy somewhere when the emcee called me and I missed it.
Was also supposed to take a toast which I didn’t cos I felt the toast was inappropriate for that sorta rally/wedding lol.
The reception was totally amazing tho. Enjoyed it. Too much bending down to pick money and plenty dancing too. Then we also had to ‘cook’ in the ‘kitchen’ too. Her first ‘meal’ for her hubby and her maid of honor had to join her in the ‘kitchen’ to cook.
That night after the whole paparazzi, I told Olameji to join me in my early morning adventure to the Onitsha-Asaba bridge.
It had been eons I saw that bridge and no way was I coming all the way to Asaba and wasn’t going to the bridge. Lai lai. But ‘meji preferred sleep to adventure and she prolly thought I was kidding too cos I had to get this done before we leave at 9am for Ibadan with the bus. I woke and hit the streets at 6.30 am. I was super serious about the bridge ooo.
I let the bus take me all the way to Onitsha
that is after the bridge and then I walked the length of the bridge back to Asaba. One end of the bridge is Onitsha, the other end is Asaba. Ndi Onitsha/Asaba can STARE for Africa sha. They kept staring at me cos frankly, I did look like a Tourist. Many of them were early morning joggers and the stared as they jogged.
More pictures from my bridge experience…
I recall that I used to be really scared when I was younger as we drove past the bridge cos there were fears that it was shaking and will soon fall. I had goosebumps now while WALKING across it. I was a lil scared but I loved the experience.
Oh one more picture for effect
Wonders truly NEVER end…
Plus did you notice that the dudes didn’t stop scoping and checking me out. Scroll up and notice it if you missed it. Asaba people can stare for ages sha… Hian…
They actually thought I was from America. thank you Tony for delivering Dumebi from this bush Asaba/Onitsha people
I got in just as the us was loading to leave and I had a VERY TERRIBLE journey back which I won’t bore you with.
So Part 2 of this wedding is this Saturday Nov 2, 2013 and I am so excited about it.
My next Post on this wedding will be a transcript of the toast I will be giving at the wedding as her best friend and Maid of honor.
I will schedule it to go Live on Saturday while the wedding is In full swing. I hope you like it… hehehehe.
I will also share pictures of her bachelorette party which I am planning and the wedding proper.
Meanwhile, I hear my Booski has been harassing everyone on BB about the plans she has for her wedding night. Dumdum ooooo. You are crazy walahi!!!
Tony bought you complete with all your wahala sha. Dear Tony, I will say a hail Mary a day for you…
You see, my girl Booski also abstained from SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE. Whoop!!! Cool2Abstain
Ok lemme rush off and finish planning this Friday night party. Some random person over heard me planning and stuff over the phone and was like ‘Mehn, you are really putting energy into this ooo. You must really LIKE this your friend’ and I said NO, I LOVE HER mega much.
When you read this, i should be in Ibadan already. i am always hyper to be here. I love this town jor…
