Today, Saturday, 4 March, 2017, the Lagos society will stand still, as the families of Sijuwade and Folawiyo play hosts to a galaxy of personalities, who will gather to witness the traditional marriage ceremony of their children. The ceremony involves Prince Aderemi Adejare Sijuwade and Olabisi Ashake Folawiyo.
The groom, Prince Aderemi is the son of His Imperial Majesty, Oba Okunade Adele Sijuwade, Olubuse 11, the 50th Ooni of Ife and Olori Oladunni Olamide Sijuwade (nee Harold-Sodipo). A very enterprising businessman, Prince Aderemi shared a remarkable closeness with his father. This informs why he is fondly called Baba’s Boy, by his friends.
On her own part, the bride, Olabisi, is the daughter of Chief Abdulwahab Iyanda Folawiyo, the late billionaire and former Baba Adinni of Nigeria, and Mrs Olushola Alaba Folawiyo, a businesswoman. Labisi is one of the most outstanding make-up artists in the society. She is the brain behind FACES By Labisi, the upscale make-up studio in Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi.
The union between Prince Aderemi and Labisi will kick off today, with the traditional and engagement ceremony. This is slated to hold at the Federal Palace Hotel, Ahmadu Bello Way, Victoria Island, at 12pm prompt.
The colour code for the day is royal blue for the groom’s family. The wedding dinner is scheduled to hold later this month.
