About 24 hours ago, movie producer cum writer, Charles Novia wrote an article on ‘Nigerians and their craze for Dubai weddings’.
“The guy is a Nigerian. The fiancée is a Nigerian. They both live and love in Nigeria. Not abroad o! Nigeria. They decide to get married and guess where they have their wedding?
No, just guess. Dubai. They make friends and family spend money to fly to Dubai for their wedding. Not Damaturu in Yobe, nor Obudu in Cross Rivers. Dubai.
You and your spouse add to the burgeoning economy of Dubai by organising a wedding which has a least total value of nothing less than $80,000 if we are to add what everyone who attends would spend even as a small group of invited guests.
And after that day, it’s all memories.
