Last weekend, Billionaire father of hip hop star, Davido shut down Abu Dhabi, the capital city of United Arab Emirates, for his son, Adewale’s wedding.

News gathered that he flew over 500 guests in private jet, gave out free tickets and free hotel rooms in four of the 5 star hotels in Dubai.

Truly, the beautiful nuptials between Adewale Adeleke and Ekanem can be termed the classiest and most expensive wedding by any Nigerian in Dubai, in the last one year.


Everyone and everywhere was abuzz of the prep of the wedding and both families did not do less as they spared no cost to give their children a superlative wedding.

Many of those who got invited and were able to have access to the venue have had only one thing to say, that this is ‘’the society wedding of the decade’.


They are even insinuating that there has been no wedding even in recent times that could match this particular one in terms of sheer extravagance & opulence.

The money spent, which is in Dollars was estimated as about over 200million naira that must have been spent.

Over 500 guests flew to the city to honour both parents and it lived up to expectation as up to 100 super-rich and powerful Nigerians who are the groom’s father, close friends and associates, flew in their private jets.

The wedding took place at the expensive Emirate International Palace, where many of the floors were taken over by Adeleke’s guests.

Also, the tallest building in the world and the most expensive 5 Star Hotel, Burj Al Arab in Dubai was also fully booked. Several other guests were lodged at other neighbouring hotels at the city.


So obviously Dubai was on a lock-down the weekend of 1st through 2nd of February, 2020.

The first leg of the wedding started in Nigeria precisely in Calabar where the Adeleke went for the family introduction and a few weeks later, it was followed by a colourful traditional wedding at Calabar as well.

The wedding proper was on Sunday, 02,02,2020 at the Emirate Palace which was on a total lock-down, it was totally taken over by the Adelekes and their guests.

All the biggest and best brands of liquors in the house and Best Quisine were at everyone’s beck and call. The wedding was a first-class wedding which made a big statement within the Nigeria social establishment.

Getting inside the wedding venue on the D-day even with your IV was like a camel passing through the eye of the needle. Security was 7-stars. IV’s were cross-checked with a list, so if you weren’t on the list, you weren’t going to enter, those inside couldn’t take anyone in, it was strictly an all invite party.

Coming from Nigeria to the wedding, the couple’s families took the whole shine, especially the couple’s siblings, they had a dedicated private jet and which was filled to capacity, those who couldn’t get on the jets had to go by commercial flights and other private jets provided by the grooms father as gathered.


There was also an after-party for all guests at Dubai Marina Yacht Club where they were treated to another lovely evening.

The bride flew in Nigeria’s queen of makeup, Banke Meshida, behind the popular Bmpro brand to beat her face.

She was dressed in a Bella dress by Leah da Gloria, an American Brila designer in New York City from her exclusives in Vainglorious Fashion Boutique in Atlanta.

Her second outfit was another expensive dress from a Beverly Hills designer, Ryan and Walter.

Her lovely accessories, custom design handcrafted headpiece was by Diana Jewels, a jeweller in New Jersey, NY city. International event planner and set designer, Alibakhtiar Designs was in charge of all the venue designs and they wowed guests with out of this world designs.

Other vendors who also cashed out form the wedding were international award-winning Nigeria designer, Deola Sagoe who designed all her traditional outfits, her hair was handled by Hairbyehis, gele by Taiwos touch, make up by Layefabeauty, wedding pictures by badge pictures, Tope Faniran designed for the groom sisters, Rona and Sharon, the groom also wore a tuxedo suit from international bespoke designer with matching shoes.

The groom’s brother and most popular, Davido was at the wedding with his baby mama, Chioma. He also performed at his brother’s wedding.

The groom’s father pulled a big one, as many of his league of billionaires showed up in Dubai. He is not a man that makes noise, but when he wants to stage a party, he does so without sparing any costs, his other 2 daughters who are married also had a destination wedding which was huge.

Those in attendance? A whole lot, Oil barons, top businessmen, industrialists, and top celebrities flew in, and so many others. Some of the family members show a pink colour code for their outfits. Davido’s father, Deji Adeleke was simply but expensively dressed in a cream Swiss polished lace with red Aso oke to go with.
