GROOM’S MUM, OTUNBA CHRISTINE ADEMODI‘S, JOY KNOWS NO BOUNDS
Right from when Otunba Christiana Ademodi, a retired top spot at the Federal Airport Authority of Nigeria sent out an invitation that her son, Tunji Bakare, would be getting married to his long-time heartthrob, Oluwayinka Owolabi, in April, many Abuja celebrities didn’t only keep the date in their calendar,
they also bought the 2days Aso-ebi picked by Otunba Ademodi. Did you ask why? It was because Otunba Christine is one of Abuja’s powerful celebrity women, who is well loved by many. The Ceo of YELIN Group of Company and Mobak link catering services was bubbling with joy seeing her friends and family showing her love. Looking many years younger than her age, pretty Otunba Christine was a cynosure of all eyes when she danced into the hall in Emerald Handcut exclusive lace, matched with emerald headgear. Her white luxury bead with 18carat gold-filled stopper did the talking as she danced in at the engagement. What about her looks at the Saturday wedding? Otunba Ademodi looked like a pack of diamonds in a cream coloured lace matched with wine colour embellished headgear. Many of her guests couldn’t help but admire her as she was ushered into the hall by Ondo cultural group. Don’t forget that Otunba Christine is from Leyo Ruling House of Ondo Kingdom and her father was foremost Pa Ademodi, the multi-millionaire Timber businessman.
BRIDE’S MUM, MADAM OWOLABI, ShedS TEARS OF JOY
If there was anyone who got teary at the wedding aside Otunba Christine Ademodi, it was the bride‘s mum, Mrs Owolabi. The ebony pretty woman, who shares a very strong bond with her daughter, couldn‘t curtail her tears of joy as her daughter signed the dotted lines with her longtime beau. Mummy Owolabi was spotted in onion colour lace for the engagement, while she rocked same cream lace with Otunba Ademodi at the Saturday grand reception. Though the bride’s father was late, but the younger brother of the bride stood in as the bride’s father.
ABUJA PDP AND APC CELEBRITY WOMEN PARTY TOGETHER
We give it to Otunba Christine Ademodi as she made many Abuja Apc and PDP politicians party under the same roof. The event which would forever linger in the minds of many who attended not just because of how classy it was, but because of the presence of society women who put their political differences aside to party at the wedding. Otunba Ademodi’s position as a top retiree of F.A.N made many top politicians come out in numbers and many were seen chatting freely and smiling without minding their different political leanings. Some were even seated at the same table for the 2days that the event lasted. A good example was Hajia Titi Atiku, the wife of a former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar. She sat at the same table with Hajia Salamotu Baiwa Umar-Eluma, the National Woman Leader of APC.

TUNJI AND YINKA’S LOVE SOARS
