Popular Nigerian Afrobeat singer David “Davido” Adeleke and renowned culinary chef Chioma Rowland (aka Chef Chi) finally tied the marital knot on Tuesday, and their wedding is the talk of the town! With their love story blossoming for the past decade, this union was much anticipated!

Like the “online in-laws” that we are, we followed the conversation on Bella Naija Weddings and decided to make a recap of our five best moments!

Unless you have been living under a rock, everyone knows that Osun State Governor Ademola Adeleke is the ultimate life of the party! This time, he decided to serenade Davido’s in-laws with some popular Igbo hymns, particularly “Jehovah Idi Ebube” (Jehovah, You’re Glorious). I think he mispronounced some words, but for the Igbos in the house, do you think he nailed it? Let us know your thoughts!

#4: Davido praises Chef Chi’s cooking skills!

Ever the lover boy, Davido also made sure the world knew of his wife’s culinary prowess, especially when it comes to Nigerian soups!

#3: Chike serenading the couple

These days, a typical wedding reception is incomplete without loverboy crooner Chike in the building! The singer-songwriter and actor got the couple in their feelings with his melodious voice, and Davido also dropped a few bars alongside!

#2: The daddy-daughter dance

At every wedding reception, there is usually the father-daughter dance, which typically represents their gratitude for a father’s love as the bride enters a new phase of life. Chioma and her dad gave us the cutest dance moves at this moment, with some Igbo highlife music playing in the background.

#1: Davido drinking the palmwine at the Igba-Nkwu ceremony

Davido drinking a cup of palm wine from Chioma in the Igba-Nkwu ceremony is definitely my favourite moment!

In the ceremony, the bride’s father hands over a glass of palm wine to the bride to search for her husband-to-be. The bride goes along with the maidens to find the groom, who is hidden in the crowd. When she searches him out, she then offers him a glass of palm wine to drink while she is kneeling. The groom drinking from it means acceptance, and the couple is officially pronounced a newlywed couple!

I loved this moment because it was the official graduation of their love from long-term lovers to a blissful marital union!

Now tell us, did you follow the wedding proceedings too? What were your favourite moments? Let us know in the comments!
