Last weekend, Funke Fowler of Leila Fowler boutique and Abi Kuku, Lagos big boy had their traditional wedding introduction.
The Kuku’s family with all the emblem of royalty from Ijebu Ode formally met that in-law last weekend in Parkview Estate, Ikoyi.
The groom is the son of eminent businessman and Ogbeni Oja of Ijebuland, Chief Adebayo Kuku
He is regarded as one of the richest and most influential Ijebu sons.
The first stage of Abi and Funke’s marriage was held in Funke’s grandma’s home inside the elitist Parkview Estate, Ikoyi.
Funke looked scintillating in a blue lace with white and silver accessories; while Abi was in his signature white.
Leila’s grand mother is the successful educationist. She runs Vivian Fowler Memorial College for girls in Lagos. Funke’s father, Chief Babatunde Fowler is the Chairman of Lagos State Board on Internal revenue. He is said to be close to Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and other members of the Lagos political family.
Amebonews gathered that the two love birds decided to live the rest of their lives together and also set machinery in motion for their wedding , when Abi finally proposed to Leila in London.
It was during the famous Prince Harry and Kate Middleton royal wedding. Though they have been dating for sometime, we gathered Funke got the wedding proposal ring during that period.
The wedding will hold in Lagos and Dubai in November.
Meanwhile when the couple announced their engagement, lots of people criticized Funke that she’s an arrogant snob! Others believe she was greatly misunderstood.
Some are also of the opinion that she wanted to have a wedding that is low key, that is why she didn’t let most people into the detail of the arrangement. That is certainly impossible said a Lagos boy, considering the prominence of both families in their respective states.
