2face Idibia's Wedding: The Ugly Side

I have always wondered why everything i have heard thus  far about 2face's wedding has been from blogs. Not once have i heard any of the celebrities that attended the wedding, gush about the event, so i went digging and this is what i found;

Here is a HipHopWorld Magazine detailed report of how Tuface's Dubai wedding went down.
How it became the survival of the fittest to get on the ferry that conveyed everyone to the reception venue, infact, the ugly side of the event. Please read.

It was billed as the wedding of the year, and so it was no surprise that everybody wanted to be present there. It didn’t matter to some people whether they were invited or not. It was 2Face‘s wedding and they just had to attend. So, it ended up being a struggle.

  • Gate Crashers
Quite a number of people gave out their invites to friends who were overjoyed to attend even if they didn’t know Annie and 2face personally. They made it worse by coming with other friends who were equally not invited.
Screening before entry was tight but trust Nigerians to always find a way around the toughest situations.
  • Don Jazzy; First Class Passenger, Plate Piler
Unlike other celebrities that flew business class and some economy, Don Jazzy flew first class to Dubai and rented a Rolls Royce Phantom to Jumeriah Beach Hotel; even though he wasn’t particularly noticed by most of the guests who were in already.
  • TuFace & Annie’s Love Boat
After having a huge turnout of guests, things got even more interesting as it became the survival of the fittest to get on the ferry that conveyed everyone to the venue of the reception which was ‘The Royal Beach Island’.
It wasn’t easy even for 2face and Annie to get onto their own love boat. 2face who hardly ever gets angry complained bitterly about it to those already on board. “Ol’boy, Na wao, to enter my own boat na wahala, our own boat o”.
The workers on the boat kept shouting “Move back, you will die”; scared that people might fall inside the water as they tried to force their way in.
Twice Senator Florence Ita Giwa tried to get in but she was pushed back. The organizers begged her for patience as they tried to get her on board but it didn’t work. There was nothing like VIP entry into the boat.
She later went home. After all, she lives like a queen in her beautiful house in Dubai. Wunmi Obe also could not attend the Beach Island reception as she could not get into the boat
  • Clueless Organizers
They may have successfully organized big weddings but 2face and Annie Idibia’s wedding organizers should have known that this particular wedding would be a different kettle of fish altogether. A handful of fans came from different parts of the world believing they would get in and they did.
One member of the organising team, Naomi Adenuga was very rude to guests.
“I don’t care if you are a dignitary or celebrity, get off the boat”, she shouted; insisting on the black card which was distributed at the venue to their own friends and people as the new authentic invite to the boat; ignoring many invited guests that flew in with their own money.
  • The Grand Reception
As guests arrived at the Royal Beach Island, they were quick to forget all the struggling they encountered trying to get on the ferry; as the ambience at the venue of the reception reminded you of a fairy tale movie.
Guests were treated to drinks of all kinds before the arrival of the couple. There was enough to eat and drink as host Basketmouth cracked everyone up; apologising for the ‘not-so-sexy’ boat ride. He also promised that the reception would live up to all expectations and it sure did.
When time for food came, guests had to wait until they were invited table by table to the buffet.
Music was by none other than veteran DJ Jimmy Jatt and guests danced like dancing was running out of fashion.
  • Busy Doing Nothing
P-Square should have been there to sing “Busy Body” for some celebrities who just hung around looking lost. Some of them were Jim Ikye, Ini Edo and Susan Peters to name a few...
  • Ariyo, the Godfather
He may be 2face’s friend, but Ariyi Emami simply played the role of Godfather throughout the wedding. We gathered that he sponsored the island reception and that was just one of the many other things he paid for.
