Come this weekend, Nigerian comedian cum tv show host Teju ‘babyface’ Oyelakin is set to take his super model bride Tobi Banjoko down the aisle in a much anticipated wedding which has been on front line stories for several months now. Teju and Tobi would be taking their vows in a spectacular event which many has tagged the wedding of the year even before it holds. Acclaimed grand comedian of the federal republic Ali Baba has already been engaged to anchor the wedding reception which is put together by celebrated Funke Bucknor-Obruthe of Zapphaire Events.
Teju will wear a bespoke suit by Nigerian label Taryor Gabriels of Lagos paired with shoes by Calvin Klein and Russell and Bromley while Nigerian designer Mai Atafo will create Tobi’s gown. Atafo revealed that the gown will be a spectacular dress perfect for Tobi’s statuesque but one in line with the traditional bridal gown theme.
Mai Atafo will design Tobi’s wedding gown as well as her bridesmaids dresses.
Tobi’s bridesmaids will also be dressed in royal blue dresses by Mai Atafo which he stated will be ”elegant and befitting for a red carpet“.
Teju will have two best men – Sesan Popoola and Tunde Koiki. Top Nigerian comedians including Tee A, Koffi, Owen Gee, Basketmouth and Holy Mallam will also serve as groomsmen as well as Bunmi Davies, Kayode Peters, Niyi Sanuel, Gbenga Olotu, Gbadebo Oyelakin, Tunde Aluko, Tolu Awobiyi and Taryor Gabriels.
