Waking up to the news that a celebrity is getting married isn’t really a surprise but when these celebrities begin to flood social media with photos of their weddings without any prior knowledge of fans and the media, now that’s a surprise!
Over the last few months, celebrities in Nigeria have devised a new way of having their weddings without the usual fuss that comes with it.
Now let’s take it back to the past when these celebrities got married, the razzmatazz that came with was epic.
From Gbenro Ajibade and Osas Ighodaro to Tiwa Savage and Tee Billz, we’ve seen celebrity weddings turn into a carnival of a sort (both weddings were aired on television stations).
We can’t even forget the biggest and most talked about wedding of 2017 between Banky W and Adesua Etomi.
The wedding ceremony was attended by literally everyone in the entertainment industry despite Banky W’s choice of having a regular wedding devoid of social buzz and attention.
Here are the surprise weddings we have witnessed so far in 2018
Kemi ‘Lala’ Akintoju and Chef Fregs where the first to show everyone how to go about a surprise wedding this year.
First, they released pre-wedding photos and while people were still trying to contain their excitement over the union, boom!!! we began to see actual wedding photos and videos from the wedding.
Another celebrity who might have pulled the surprise wedding on everyone is Zainab Balogun.
Up until her wedding day, not many knew she was even dating then another shocker…another set of wedding photos began to flood our timeline on social media.
We can also say OAP extraordinary, Gbemi Olateru tried to keep her wedding away from the prying eyes of the media but a nosy person (Friend or family) blew it!
The latest celebrity on this list is Linda Ejiofor and hubby, Ibrahim Sulieman. We have to give it to these guys for pulling a smart one on everyone.
Here’ why we think celebs are holding surprise weddings
Maybe some of these celebrities have decided to take things slow and catch everyone by surprise with their weddings because they don’t really want and can’t contain the kind of crowd that usually show up at celebrity weddings.
Another reason we might be having surprise weddings is that of the jinx that comes with big celebrity weddings.
Some are of the school of thought that a number of big celebrity weddings which got a lot of buzz have actually crashed!
One question a lot of people might want to know is how do the friends and families of these guys keep this wedding dates under their sleeves?
