According to him, they could have done an elaborate wedding despite not having enough cash - as both of them were working then - but he didn't want them to spend all their earnings on a wedding.

"So at the time we were ready to get married there wasn't really any cash at hand... However I was earning as I had a job - she was working too...
"But we I didn't want us to spend all our earnings on the wedding, she wanted a big wedding, not really big but bigger than I was suggesting.
"So I had to concede on some things like her wedding dresses - had to be made to what she wanted, '' he stated.

The most expensive during their wedding was the hall

Doing a rundown of the cost of their wedding, the talent manager said the most expensive thing during their wedding occasion was the hall which cost about N300k.

In keeping to their choice of a small wedding, they printed only 20 invitation cards but they had about 200 guests at their reception.

"We didn't do church wedding. We did court on Thursday and then engagement and reception on a Saturday. We eventually had up to 200 guests (my wife's parents did photocopy of IV (Laughs)."

Ademola shares their regret about the wedding

When asked if he had any regrets looking back on the occasion, Ademola said the only thing they regret was not sticking to the IVs.

He said:

"We have no regrets whatsoever. In fact we wished we had done strictly by IV, that way we would have gotten a way smaller hall and the same quality of people. Notice I said quality of people and not quantity of people. We haven't seen 98% of people who came to our wedding before the wedding, we haven't seen them after the wedding either."
