She wrote,

“I respect tradition; it is what makes us unique. For my ‘kamu’ (a ceremony whereby the groom’s family comes and negotiates with the bride’s friends for her release), I insisted on wearing the rich blue traditional Fulani fabric that was worn by generations before us. I am proudly (a) Fulani bride,”

Dignitaries who attended the wedding included former Lagos State Gov. Bola Tinubu, former Vice President Namadi Sambo, Senate President Bukola Saraki and Chief Bisi Akande.

The dignitaries also included Govs. Rauf Aregbesola, Nasir El-rufai, Gov. Umaru Almakura, Yahaya Bello and Aminu Masari, among others.
