Wife of the Vice-president Mrs Dolapo Osinbanjo shared photos of the cake she baked for her daughter’s wedding, Osinbanjo’s daughter Oludamilola got married to Seun Bakare, son of billionaire businesswoman, Bola Shagaya, there wedding ceremony held at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja.
Dolapo Osinbajo has taken full credits for baking her daughter Oluwadamilola’s cake.
In her words, she wrote while posting the cake’s picture on her Instagram account
“The cake I baked and decorated for my daughters wedding day. Trimmed the cake board with crochet…..The things our great mothers taught us!”
It was also gathered that Security operatives who were present at the wedding, ordered guests who arrived at the venue of the wedding, to keep their phones in their car and further ensured they complied.
A message sent out by the VP’s media team to State House reporters read;
“Media cameras will not be required and therefore not welcomed in today’s (Saturday’s) events both in church and the reception. Please accept our request and need for an entirely PRIVATE event”.
Meanwhile, Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo insisted on a low-key wedding for his daughter. He made it known after the backdrop of fierce criticism that followed the wedding of the children of the governors of Kano and Oyo states.
The ceremony, attended by President Muhammadu Buhari and 22 state governors, drew the ire of critics who felt the kidnap of 110 schoolgirls in Dapchi and an upsurge in Boko Haram killings should have necessitated a sober celebration.
Osinbajo was said to be concerned about the “mood of the nation” and has warded off pressures to do a “grand wedding” for his daughter, Damilola, who is getting married to Oluseun Bakare, a pastor in the Redeemed Christian Church of God and son of Bola Shagaya, a businesswoman and celebrity.
But expectations that it will be a high-society wedding have been doused.
“Left to the VP and his wife, it would have been the smallest and simplest of ceremonies, taking place in their backyard, especially given the current mood of the nation,” a family insider told TheCable.
“Nonetheless the VP seems to be swimming against a rather strong tide. For instance the VP’s position compels him to inform and invite dignitaries, many of who will cry blue murder if left out of the invitations.
“But for a man known for his unassuming nature and humble mien, these circumstances have invited the dilemma of how to moderate the occasion and balance out the wedding outlook considering the current mood of the nation.”
Osinbajo “has firmly concluded” on doing everything, except the church service, within the state house, TheCable learnt.
“This should by itself limit the crowd and ensure that the event is not blown out of proportion,” the source said.
