After the service and the picture sessions, the guests moved down to the poolside of the hotel where they were feted to a kingly reception. The couple’s dais was decorated in purple and peach which were the colours of the day with gold beaded curtains while the pool was filled with purple and peach flowers.

He is a graduate of Business Admin and has been working in Nigeria Television and Nollywood film productions for over 15 years. He is also a renowned Nollywood Director and Producer.
Due to the fact that Tricia who was for several years an actress didn’t reveal the identity of her boyfriend, the rumour mill was agog with tales of her dating so many big boys particularly the footballers she featured on her show. Truly she was dating a big boy whom she met 12 years ago and was able to shroud his identity from the press and even her friends. According to Tricia, she met him 12 years ago when he came on a visit to Nigeria, when she first met him, she didn’t think much of it and they lost contact till they met and hit it off again and proposed to her.
Leggy and beautiful wife of Nigeria’s retired ball wizard Austin Okocha is no doubts beautiful. The gorgeous woman who came to represent her husband who was in Abuja was in a short black tube dress which showed off her endless legs with a hand rosary tattooed at the back of her left leg. She accentuated the look perfectly with a simple hairstyle, a pearly head band, earrings and bracelet with a pearly ring to match.
Stephanie Okereke’s mono strap floor length dress was made of Ankara, it was outstanding and with her long weave and high heels she looked every inch great
Rukky Sanda’s girly look
The sultry Nollywood actress went for the girly look in her short purple ball gown and high heeled gold shoes and bag. Her attempt at looking striking was however toned down with the fan like accessory in her hair.
Rave of the moment, sultry actress Mercy Johnson came in towards the end of the church service. The dark skinned Nollywood act wore a purple java print skirt and gold tube top. She left almost immediately after taking pictures with the couple and her colleagues in the movie industry.
Shakhtar Donetsk striker Julius Aghahowa looked gangster with his dreads and in his black suit ad pitch black Ray ban sun shades. His arrival in his gleaming black Bentley Porsche with his wife Ij caused a stir. They were the wedding sponsors.
The bride looked exotic with her glowing complexion in her ivory dress with her train sweeping the floor with a lacy bolero arched at the back. Daintily placed on her head was a coronet which matched her unique studded and jeweled bouquet. Her dress was a 2,700 Pronovais wedding gown collection made by a Barcelona designer. Her husband’s black suit and shimmery waistcoat was gotten from Carlo Bellini in Italy.
Nollywood star actress and model, Lillian Bach and her ex-lover or is it lover again? Johnson Davidson’s presence at the wedding confirmed they may have gotten together again. The two of them were sighted last year at Planet One, Ikeja, Lagos venue of the reception hosted in honour of Nigeria’s international soccer star, Austin ‘Jay jay’ Okocha by Tricia Eseigbe and at the wedding and since then they seemed to have reconciled. Lillian who was in a monostrap grey dress with purple appliqués and a purple net head tie with purple shoes and purse to match was with him all through the event.
The lace wig hair has become a fad between Nollywood actresses both in the English speaking and Yoruba genre of Nigerian movies. Apart from the bride whose lace wig was fixed at Downtown salon, other actresses who were donning the lace wig include; Mercy Johnson, Uche Jombo, Mary Uranta and Rukky Sanda to mention a few.

Actress turned singer Elfreda Roland’s attempt to stand her out left her sitting alone. She came in wearing a java gold hooded outfit, with the hood over her full weave in the scorching sun. She finished off the daring look with gold dangling earrings and dark sun shades. Some people were of the opinion that her attempt to cover up her body didn’t pay off as intended.
