After a year (plus) of pared-down guest lists and socially distanced receptions, Nigerian celebrity weddings came roaring back in 2022. For every one of these events, these couples have reminded us that love is a force that can carry us through anything.
From Rita Dominic to Kemi Adetiba to Ini Dima-Okojie, these superstars made us want love. Anita Asuoha popularly known as Real Warri Pikin also showed us that it is never too late to get that dream proposal you have always wanted, married or not.
Here is a list of the celebrity weddings that made us love and want love in 2022.
Rita Dominic And Fidelis Anosike
This newlywed couple exchanged vows before God and man in November 2022. They had their traditional wedding earlier in the year and a destination wedding later in England with family and close friends in attendance. This classy wedding definitely made it to the list.
Kemi Adetiba And Oscar Heman-Ackah
The “King of Boys” director got traditionally married to her Ghanaian sweetheart in April, 2022. The wedding was filled with celebrities and was the talk of the town.
Mercy Chinwo And Pastor Blessing
The gospel singer found love in the arms of Pastor Blessing. Pastor Blessing got hitched to his “sister” in September and they had us gushing over their lovely engagement and wedding pictures. We would also not forget to mention that Mercy’s dresses were a ‘blessing’ to our sight.
Ini Dima-Okojie And Abasi Ene-Obong
The cute duo who got married in June, 2022, left us fascinated with stunning pictures as they said “I do”. For Ini and Abasi, it started with a chocolate craving and now, it is a happy ever after story. This is a reminder to never let distance be a barrier when it comes to love, and do not be hesitant to send your crush a gift!
M.I Abaga And Eniola Mafe
This adorable couple, who got married in September, gave us a sneak peek into their love journey in an Instagram reel just before their wedding and it left us mesmerised. M.I meant it when he said: “Allow me to introduce you to the love of my life. Love her more than I love life. Yo, that’s wifey, I feel nice. Swear down that’s my guy, my ride or die, my confidant. Gave her old school game, that Donkey Kong.”
He also assured us that we can find love at any time and any age. “I found me a ten, yeah, who said that it can’t be done. Her smile just dey calm me down. I use to feel like I don’t belong, but now I feel like I’m the chosen one…
Peggy Ovire And Frederick Leonard
The Nollywood stars and now newlyweds surprised us back to back when they came out to announce their relationship, then to the surprise proposal on Peggy’s birthday and their wedding. It was star-studded and the couple engaged us with dazzling pre-wedding, traditional and wedding photos.
Anita (Real Warri Pikin) And Ikechukwu Asuoha
This couple definitely did not get married this year. For them, it has been 10 years of marriage. But, the couple definitely had us going ‘awww’ when Ikechukwu gave his queen her dream proposal and engagement. He popped the question again in a beautiful outdoor garden, with fireworks and a diamond ring. Anita, for sure, gave a resounding yes!
