When Lagos celeb lady and CEO of Ebony Life TV, Mo Abudu hosted family and friends to her daughter, Temidayo’s traditional wedding in Lagos, all routes that led to Victoria Island stood still for hours as many celebrity men and women stormed the party to honour her. It was not only the Abudus alone, it was also for the wealthy Lagos family, the Makanjuola’s as well. And you can only imagine what calibre of guests that will attend such wedding. The groom’s mother and top business woman, Casandra Makanjuola pulled a large crowd of celebrity women to the party. Mo and Tokunbo Abudu’s daughter, Temidayo popularly called Ted Abudu got married at a spectacular wedding to Carverto Helicopter Boss, Remi Makanjuola’s son, Adebola.
All the parking lots at Oriental Hotel where the engagement and reception took place were filled to the brim with exotic cars of many important personalities who came to honour the Abudus/Makanjuolas. Traffic was on lock down for over 4 hours. All the adjacent parking lot outside the hotel were also full of cars.
The event took place at the Grand Ball room of the Hotel. The colours for the day was Baby pink for the brides family, while gold and green was for the grooms family. Almost all the celebrity women and ladies wore the Aso ebi which was sold for 220k a package. The event had 6 aso ebis and all came out beautifully well on all the guests. There were 3 types of aso ebi which was picked by the bride’s mother, we gathered one set was sold for 55k, 2nd set was sold for 70k while the 3rd set was sold for 95k, totaling 220k. There is also another aso ebi which was picked by the brides grandmother, Mrs. Akintunde from all of Mo Abudu’s family from Ondo.

Give it to our society women, guipure lace is not for the faint hearted, it takes someone that is very stylish and fashionable that can wear it because it is very edgy and heavy. This was what all the celebrity women wore and they added a lot of glamour to the party. Do we need to tell you about their accessories, yes!! Expensive pieces you must guess, most of them dazzled in diamonds which was sort of a competition between the celebrity women, even the ones that are not wearing bogus necklace played their outfits up with diamind studs. While some settled for gold, some also decided to pearl their outfit off. It was a showcase of style at the party.
The 2 colours did justice to guests outfit as it came out nice on everyone. Bride’s friends also dazzled in another set of colourful black net lace paired with a fushia pink aso oke headgear.

Leading the park were the couple’s mothers, Mo Abudu and Casandra Makajuola. They were everyone’s delight at the party, They were the cynosure of all eyes as all guests kept staring at their ageless beauty. To say they are very fashionable is simply stating the obvious.
