The month of March 2018 is gradually becoming power packed with the kind of events that would hold in that 3rd month, end of the first quarter of 2018. First it is the Jamil Abubakar weds Fatima Dangote wedding that everyone was getting prepared for in that same month, now feelers that we have gotten has it on good authority that the families of “Osinbajo of Abeokuta, that’s the family of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and his adorable wife would be uniting in Holy matrimony with the Shagayas, that’s Hajia Bola Shagaya’s family. Damilola Osinbajo & “Seun” Shagaya would on Thursday, March 15 and Saturday March 17, 2018 in Abuja, the FCT, solidify their love for each other by making it legal, both traditionally and otherwise. From what we have learnt, the 2 families wants to keep the ceremonies hush-hush (very quiet). Why they had adopted that idea we don’t know, but we have thought to help them by announcing it to the world for free, without asking for a Kobo and without any stress to them whatsoever. Everyone already know very well the pedigree of both families uniting in thr marriage. Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, SAN is the legal luminary who is the current Vice President of Nigeria. He was at a time the former Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Lagos State during the administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. His amiable wife on the other hand is one of the grand-daughters of the enigma known to all as Chief Obafemi Awolowo, of blessed memory.
The mother of the groom on the other hand is the billionaire, Kwara State strong woman, HAJIA Bola Shagaya, a top businessman woman and owner of Practoil, amongst several business concerns of the very stylish and quiet lady. Damilola, the quiet, very beautiful and super intelligent 2nd daughter of the VP & wife is in her 20s, and is an award winning Masters degree holder from a private Ivy league school- Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, Hanover USA. “Seun” Shagaya is one of the sons- (Sheriff, Hakeem, Seun, Kabir and Tolani in that order) of Bola Shagaya.
Infact Seun is the 3rd of 5 of Hajia Bola Shagaya sons, and like his mom also, he is a businessman/player in the oil and gas sector. For those that don’t know, though “Seun and Damilola are getting hooked in March of 2018 which is only a few weeks away”, Kabir the next to Seun (4th) is also getting set of marry too, but his own would be in May of 2018. So it’s a double pronged preparation for the Shagayas of Ilorin, Kwara State, knowing Hajia Shagaya very well, both weddings would epitomize class and distinction in all ramifications. One other very curious thing about the March 2018 wedding is also that, while the bride- Dammy is a Christian, her VP dad being a pastor at the RCCG, Seun is a Moslem, his mom is a practising Moslem who is liberal as it seem. So it’s a marriage of love and tolerance as can be seen. Congratulations in advance to both families and the couple.
