When guests gathered together for the much anticipated wedding of Mukaila Olaniyi Afonja(a.k.a Sanyeri) and his soul mate Awawu Omolara Jimoh little did they know they were up for a big surprise . Let me remind you that the couple have been living together for almost eight years now and has two children to show for it.
The wedding took place at the Anchor event center Ikeja on a hot sunday afternoon,1st December 2013 precisely. In attendance were Nollywood Actors, Dignitaries, family and Friends of the couple.
The shabby and rowdy event was a big disapointment to guests, and unexpected of an Actor of Mr. Sanyeri’s caliber, as it was said that millions of naira was spent in organising the de-tastful event.
Well, by the look of thing, it doesn’t look like the wedding or the well being of his guest was the most important thing to him, because just like the mischievous

character he plays in his movies,Mr. sanyeri woke up one morning and thought that organizing a big societal wedding ceremony was a brilliant, fast way to make money,this idea was so bright to him that the bulb in his brain came on. Then he went about soliciting for funds from one politician to another, he even raised a committee to this effect to fund this great investment of his. In his greed, he sold low quality Ankara materials, which will not go for more that #2,500 in the market for #20,000. The Ankara was the gate pass to the event. Knowing that the Ankara material(which had a touch of orange colour) was of low quality, he made his guests pay into his account before giving them, so when they get it, they can’t reject it since they’ve paid a non refundable sum of #20,000.
The most disappointing and irritating aspect of it is that he went in a deal with a marketer called EXEL for 1 million naira to sell video of wedding.
So, i thought wedding was supposed to be a special event in celebration of love, when has it become a money making event. Things like this should be spoken against so it doesn’t become a trend in the society, or we start to see fund raising naming ceremony. My wedding present for you Mr. Sanyeri, the love of money is the root of all….. complete it yourselves. All your guests are complaining , find a way to make it up to them, if you truly care about your wedding and your guests.
