Sadiq Abacha stages A-class wedding
Ask those privileged to have attended any of the weddings of the late Head of State, General Sani Abacha's children and they will testify that the former first family knows how to wow their guests.
For the umpteenth time, the Abachas led by their mother, Hajia Maryam staged a wedding that has set the standard for other members of the high society. Sadiq, one of the handsome sons of the former first family, got hitched to the love of his life, Huda Mahmud in a five-day cultural extravaganza held from October 16 to 21. All of these events were characterized by glitz and glamour. First, there was the Kamu ceremony held at Kado Estate, Abuja.
Then there was the Wushe-Wushe event held at the Blue-Velvet marquee, which was followed by the Walima. On Friday October18, the wedding Fatiha took place at the National Mosque. Guests of the couple reconvened at the International Conference Center (ICC) later in the evening for the wedding reception.
The compere at the reception, Dayo Benjamins-Laniyi described the ambience at the ICC as celestial and there was not one dissenting voice. Not only was the entire hall covered up in white decorations with sparkling lights, even the plate holders and chairs were made with glitering stones.
These along with the hundreds of beautiful faces adorned in high fashion resulted in a show of opulence only the Abachas can pull-off. It was at the reception that Sadiq publicly declared that Huda was going to be his "one and only true love", not just in words but also with a wave of his index finger.
The love from the couple who met in Dubai years back was infectious. It was clear for all to see that they were really into each other as they exchanged rings during their reception. For the Wushe-Wushe night, Brymo and May-D performed while Dr. Sid and Zaaki Azzay entertained guests at the reception chaired by Niger-Delta strongman, Chief Edwin Clark.
Former First Lady, Hajia Turai Yar'Adua was the mother of the day. Just as there was enough eye candy for both guys and babes to view, there was a lot to eat and drink with most guests expressing happiness that they were part of the Sadiq and Huda's wedding.
