The much talked about wedding ceremony of the Oyo Assembly Speaker, Adebo Ogundoyin began with an engagement and traditional ceremony in Ibadan, on Thursday, 25th November, 2021.
Venue was the International Confrence Centre, UI, Ibadan. The main wedding, Church and reception, holds at the All Souls’ Anglican Church, Bodija, Ibadan and Ibadan Polo Club Grounds, Eleyele-Road, respectively.
The engagement and traditional wedding ceremony was superb. A good number of high-flying celebrities from across the country and beyond graced the occasion. Osun Speaker, Hon. Timothy Owoeye and his counterparts from Kogi State, Mathew Kolawole,as well as two former speakers in Oyo State,Hon. Monsurat Sunmonu and Hon.Asimiyu Alarape were there. All members of Oyo State House of Assembly, PDP leaders and other top personalities from Ibadan, Ibarapa and other zones were there. Top society women from Ibadan, Lagos and Abuja were all present.
In fact, some have been in Ibadan since Wednesday. The venue was transformed into a kind of small paradise with an elaborate decoration. It was a Turquoise and Gold affair. All the Ibadan society women solidly stood by Yeye Oge Tina Ogundoyin(the mother of the Groom) and JusticeTokunbo Majekodunmi,(the mother of the bride). Tungba gospel crooner, Yinka Ayefele was on bandstand of the Strictly- by- Invitation party.
The ceremony started with the introduction of both families by the Alaga Iduro and Alaga Ijoko (traditional MCs), before Adebo Ogundoyin went ahead and engaged his beautiful woman, Olamidun, amidst pomp and pageantry. It was quite interesting and a romantic scene to behold, especially with the lights and smoke effects.
We almost forgot to tell you that the wife of late strongman of Oyo politics, late Alhaji Ariyibi Adedibu, Yeyelua Bose Adedibu stood solidly behind her friend.
They both stormed Ayefele’s stage together. Bose Adedibu came with her special catering for some VVIP guests. The same goes for top fabric merchants and top society women in Ibadan too. They were all there and participated in the expensive Aso-Ebi. The likes Bola Ologburo, Yetunde Olokuta (Y-Stone), Ronke Thomas and a whole lots of others were there.
As colourful as the Thursday programme was, where Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin engaged his better half, Olamidun Majekodunmi, it was, however, a tip of the ice bag of what guests saw at the Saturday wedding.
