It was a truly African fairy tale affair in London last week when Yoruba Nigerian and Ugandan cultures collided and cumulated in the joining of Susan and Ayokunnu Odunniyi.

Ayo is the scion of Dr Toib Odunniyi, the CEO of Cyborg UK/Nigeria and the founder of 9jaDiaspora Ventures.
At the Traditional Wedding ceremony that held in the 700 capacity Decorium Banqueting Hall in North London, many came from all corners of the UK, from Nigeria, Uganda, the United States and Europe to witness the joining together of the lovebirds.
London maestro Soji Alayo was on the bandstand to delight the guests with Ayan De First introducing some African flavour to the evening’s entertainment.
