Mrs. Dolapo Osinbanjo shared photos of the cake she baked for the wedding of her daughter, Osinbanjo’s daughter Oludamilola tied the knot to Seun Bakare, son of billionaire businesswoman, Bola Shagaya, their wedding ceremony was held at the National Ecumenical Centre, Abuja.
Dolapo Osinbajo has taken the full credits for baking her daughter’s cake on her wedding day.
In her words, she wrote this while posting the cake’s picture on her Instagram page:
“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 the Security operatives who were available at the wedding, has ordered guests who arrived at the venue of the wedding, to keep their mobile phones in their car and further ensured they complied to the rules.
A message sent out by the Vice President’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 wanted a low-key wedding for his daughter. He made it known following the backdrop of fierce criticism that came after the wedding of the children of the governors of Kano and Oyo states.
The ceremony, that was attended by President Muhammadu Buhari and other 22 state governors, drew so many critics who felt the abduction 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.
