ANKARA JUNKIE, ASO-EBI INSPIRATION, WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT

ANKARA ASOEBI #FAAJI2018

Hello my beautiful readers,

Last weekend was the multicultural traditional wedding of the Son of Oyo state Governor Senator Ajimobi (Idris Ajimobi) and Daughter of Kano state Governor Ganduje (Fatima Ganduje)

Immediately I saw it in the news, I developed interest and stalked their hashtag FAAJI2018 which was indeed a display of the Hausa and Yoruba cultures ranging from the bride’s hausa costume,Asooke, Durban horses, royal event theme, henna night and so many beautiful and magnificent expose of the richness of our diversity in Nigeria.

Another aspect which is my major interest is the asoebi. Because this is a society wedding and both parents are politicians, I was expecting that the event will be filled with a sorts of Swiss laces as asoebi but to my pleasant surprise, I saw their beautiful guests slaying in colorful Ankara fabrics. OMG!!! To say I was elated will be an understatement.

Remember few weeks back HERE, I made a post on Ankara aso-ebi. And I was trying to show you how your guests can slay stylishly in Ankara fabrics at budget friendly rates.

So when I saw that # FAAJI2018 was filled with mainly Ankara designs, I was excited because this shows that you can use Ankara fabric aso-ebi for your event not just because you have a low budget but because you just want to appreciate and give you event that Naija or African Vibe.

Let’s see some of the pictures from # FAAJI2018 :

All in all, # FAAJI2018 was splendid and I wish Idris and Fatima Ajimobi a very peaceful marriage filled with all the good things of life.

Cheers,

Modupe
