It’s no doubt that Kemi Adebita’s The Wedding Party has certainly set standards for how wedding parties will be held in Nigeria. Forgive me if am wrong, am not the owambe type.
So today after what seems like forever, I attended a Wedding Party and I couldn’t help but see alot of Kemi Adebita Illustrations.
It started at the church, going smoothly but unlike The Wedding Party, the service spanned across two hours, too long for my liking.
When the couple were walking out of the church to head towards the reception, I got too close to a man to get a better view of the procession. The man immediately removed his phone from his pocket and held it in his hands, too much of The Wedding Party I guess.
Thankfully the gown of the bride didn’t tear but we were all concern of her not missing her steps when she was to step into the car.
Reception came and then one Bankole rip off (the event planner) wanted to rob us of our seats, a seat that was reserved specifically for us, after receiving that who you help look, she knew her threats had no stands.
Then the couple danced in graciously jamming to popular naija love songs but there was no dance entrance from the family members maybe they were unable to resolve the family who should come in first and last like was done in The Wedding Party.
Then the pastor came up but unlike emmaomg, he actually gave a reasonable opening prayer.
Then MC started cracking dry jokes, guess he still has to go and learn his craft from AY Makun, dude did not even know who the President of the United States is and he claimed he received a call from Obama apologizing for missing the wedding. I almost fell asleep.
The time for remarks came and various people were coming out to give remarks and everything was going smoothly until the maid of honor came and said something that left the bride blushing tomato red.
To my relieve a guy came up and took over the MC job but only little was he able to do, the damage has already been done. When it came to the time to kiss the bride, this new Mc guy was able to get into the couples head.
At first the couple started off as shy seconds later the kiss had deepened and they had become inseparable. That’s how they were turning heads and locking lips like they were acting a telemundo flick. It took the dj stopping the music for them to separate.
Was like they could not wait for night to fall and get down to real business.
Then food came, and as a loyal Yorùbá demon, I ordered semo and efo rírọ believe me when I say it was on flick. For the first time in my life I had to eat swallow with fork and knife, not that I wanted to but there was this beautiful girl at the other table that has been eyeing me, i couldn’t come and fall my own hand.
Yorùbá demons will never forgive me. The meat was good sha, you know that fleshy kind of meat and I had two on my plate, my my.
Someone was now like, excuse me can you stand so I can eat and I was like I collect IV., you collect IV behave yourself o.
They started jamming songs and everybody was dancing but as a well brought up Yoruba boy I could not allow the food in the plate waste and so I sat down and je je lyrics continue my eating.
After everything we went how to take pictures with the couple and just like that I started heading home unto say my two missions have been achieved; eating that Nigeria wedding food and secondly What Yoruba demons do very well, steal a girls heart.
I don’t know whether it was alot of The wlWedding Party witnessed at the wedding or alot of the occurrences at Nigerian weddings that was portrayed in The Wedding Party.
Buy my one thing is certain! The Wedding Party not only changed things in the movie industry but also in the wedding sphere.
Congratulations to Christabel and her husband John #jobel2017
