Former UK diasporans Bode and Yemi Onanuga last weekend held the entire city of Ijebu Ode Ogun State Nigeria in total lockdown as they gave away in marriage, their first child Dr Oludolapo, in what can only be described as the wedding of the decade, to Urhoboan Dr Victor Okuluko.
Bode and Yemi, who themselves have been together for almost 30 years, were Uni sweethearts at the Ogun State University Ago Iwoye. On graduation, they relocated to the UK where they got married and settled but they returned to Nigeria in the mid 90s.
The Onanugas who are blessed with a well sized family, hold the first Mr Biggs franchise in Ogun State.
Their daughter’s wedding, a colourful mux of two cultures- Ijebu and Urhobo, which held over 2 days drew many dignitaries such as royals, Senators, top politicians, top government officials, industry magnates and and many other VIPs from different walks of life including scores of ex OSUITES some of whom flew in from outside the country.
Dolapo and her new husband Victor met as medical students at the University of Ghana. They now both work in London.
