Pretty Bride............... All these Hausa weddings sef - they will make you think twice

Mich said...

So all the talks about Late Gen. Sani Abacha wanting to Islamize Nigeria is true after all?
Seeing Mrs Farakhan in this wedding further affirms the bond the military dictator had with the Nation of Islam head huncho,gangster turned Muslim faithful,Farakhan.
Wonder how he thought that was gonna be possible considering the fact that Mr Farakhan was already in troubled waters with the US government at that time and Saudi Arabia's reluctance in giving him(Abacha) full support.
Happy married life to Mr Mahmud.

The Abacha clan -- especially his male children -- are direct beneficiaries of historic looting of public monies in Nigeria. I see no reason why current leaders should fraternize with this family. Then again, its Nigeria...

Their wedding pictures look chaotic. Like a family parlour affair. the orange on the kids is harsh. I dunno. Not digging anything besides the bride.

G. Jonathan sending a representative is called DIPLOMACY not HIPOCRARCY. Our present and future actions should not be guided by our pasts, especially our negative history.

Abacha's regime was super crappy and hostile but thank God Nigeria survived it. Now let's move on to greater heights so Abacha can twerk in his grave.... lol.. geez did I just say that...

Happy married life to the couple. These Hausas are hot sha.

That wedding was clearly not islamic. Islam is not against wearing suit buh it encourages covering of the ladies' nakedness• The bride clearly lacked that• And you ppl that post anything without evidence, the fact that they bear muslim names does not mean they adhere with islamic practices• And I haven't read a place in the bible where it is written that gowns that reveals the boobs should be worn for wedding that's no christianity buh pure westernism• #EOD
