Having performed their traditional wedding rites on Monday, November 1, Court wedding on Wednesday, November 3 and the bachelor’s eve on Thursday, November 4, Basketmouth and Elsie had put all in place for their white wedding and the reception that followed suite.

Adorned in a an elegant white strapless ballgown wedding dress by Pronovias with her hair accessorized with dazzling petal hairpiece and diamond drop earrings and bracelets while the groom, Basketmouth was dressed in a three piece long-tail suit by Saville Tailors, the couple were the cynosure of all eyes.

After their marriage blessing, the couple proceeded to their wedding reception venue which was decorated in their official wedding colours – Fuchsia Pink, Silver and Black. The wedding reception stands out in so many ways: the unique spherical stage, the multi-tier pearl and crystal adorned cake, Elsie’s ‘Single Ladies’ dance and bouquet toss where she was showered with pink. The couple also danced their first dance together that night as they were serenaded by former Lagbaja’s lead singer and Glo ambassador, Ego.

Basketmouth’s wedding was not also short of celebrities as celebrities came out in droves to celebrate one of their own; celebrities that made it to the wedding ceremony were Ali Baba, Bovi, Julius Agwu, Tee A, Teju Babyface, Pastor Tony Rapu, Presidential aspirant, Dele Momodu, Jay Jay Okocha, Mudi, Basorge Tariah, Gbenga Adeyinka. Earlier at the traditional wedding and bachelor’s eve, Basketmouth had hosted among other guests celebrities like Genevieve, Kayode Peters, Yaw, Ay, Jedi, Opa Williams, Frank Edoho.

Could you tell me the bad images you want to be exposed? At least, we need prove to believe what you are saying...

i just hate people that do not appreciate hardworking people like his. What if he(Basketmouth) were to be ur brother, would u wish him the same?

Nothing is going to go wrong with this couple because they are made for each other.

You are very right, but i wonder if that is a dick or something else, although, this Basket mouth must possess something very comedian in his body, and that must be his dick, he decided to show it on his wedding day. I think that there many funny things in Basket mouth body, when he removes his cloth, then people will run.

these girls thats saying about basketmouth having a big dick,you people are just being jealous for nothing,as if he had come to marry u,u wont accept,im sure u guys are jealous because he didnt marry u after offering him ur f*****g and s***ky p***y..hahahaaha..gud 4 u all...p********es.if his dick is big i think his wife is so lucky,u guys should take ur f*****g eyes off there,after all he basketmount is far far better than all of your boy friends & ur brothers...haters!!!

which of the 2 kids belong to Basket Mouth or didn't he want the world to know about his kids.

His mum is even beautiful, how come he looks different, anyway, happy married life, but marriage is not a joke or comedy, this one that all the picture is looking like cartoon, he doesn't even know when to be serious.

Joy, abeg what is your own?
eme | 11/10/2010 11:19:49 AM |
why is she useless? do you know what she knows that's making her say that? why are u taking panadol for someone else's headache? abeg let's hear correct gist not just see fake wedding pictures. elsie from her festac ghetto has a lot of secrets some pple know very well so maybe "real helena" is one of them that does. ive also heard a few things myself.
JOY | 11/10/2010 6:44:59 PM |
eme | 11/11/2010 1:33:16 PM |
Clearly ur an illiterate fellow gutter dog of elsie and her crew dat doesnt kno s**t but just like to bark and make noise. what was said and what da f**k are you talking about? why e pain u so?

what is there to be jeaolus of? who is elsie? cloth seller today ardyss seller tomoro, ordinary market woman, babymother turn wife by force, juju user, gold digger, street girl.

or is it basketmouth? joke stealer, abortion forcer,uni drop out, ordinary joke teller

which front are they in? front of what?

you are either very s****d or part of them trying to cover up this pple's story. theres nothing to be jealous of, are they d only ones to marry? d point is they are throwing their wedding story everywhere by force thinking they are the biggest wedding nigeria has ever seen to cover up the bad stories which are the truth, baksetmouth doesnt want to loose his fans and endorsements because of the true bad image of him being a woman beater, cheater and a theif or did you not read the stories where different girls were exposed?
he pays people including people that work for this very
you would have never heard so much about this wedding and his love until the bad stories broke out and him and his PR team started selling fake good stories that people just eat up.

abeg if dont know wetin to talk go scratch ur yansh, s****d b***h, na you go choke to death on stone and ignorance.
That was bad

IFE | 11/10/2010 9:23:33 AM
This is the Cartoon Wedding of the Year, this basket mouth can never get serious in his life, he thinks everything is comedy, even these ministers can't counsel him all they need is his money

Julius Agwu's wedding was better, at least julius knows when to get serious and when to joke or dance, even though he is a difficult person he controls himself but this Basket mouth, Can Never be Serious! USH

i am so not happy with ur comment because we share the same name and you sound very biased with ur comment.

If you were at this wedding, i bet u wouldn't say this. Though it's okay to say what u have in mind but dont take the medium for granted, abusing people.

You guys have to wise up because no matter how many comments u post here, it won't remove one kobo from his acc.

so, work on ur self and leave this guys alone.

go and get married and lets see whether ur wedding wouldn't be 'cartoonish'
Saturday | 11/10/2010 9:38:59 AM
I can't believe that Basket Mouth hired all these Wedding Planners including photographers without higing a Designer or someone to dress him up.

Even the photographers are blind, what is this that made his trouser to swell up like that, common is he the only man that has a dick, bad packaging, or is that a side attraction or comedy show, what nonsense, no one told him even the so call bride couldn't check out her husband after dressing and his groom men, this wedding is not organised, he just wasted money even a local wedding can be well organised than this.

Doctors shld check that bump under his leg and find out what the problem is pls. These pictures are not GOOD.

Thanks my bros, you are also right, see the way the bride is laughing, that kind of laugh will make a lady forget who givam belle, both of them are thesame.

What a swollen!!!!

Saint | 11/10/2010 11:27:55 AM
This marriage is just for formality sake, there is nothing to move someone here, side attraction and cartoon line is still the same person Basketmouth.

This bride luvs money, if not what will she be doing with Basket mouth, unserious minded person, anyway she doesn't know what marriage is all about, this Bright can jokalize everything in Life but Marriage he can't.

the Groom looks so dominant, the Bride looks so handicap, she didn't contribute a kobo for this wedding. She must be a housewife or rather going to be a housewife. I wish you what you wish yourself, young woman.

The Best Wedding Of The Year
Onas | 11/10/2010 1:22:24 PM
Speaking of weddings, you would agree with me that it has to do with what the couple believes. This wedding is without doubt, one of the best the industry has ever seen. People on Nigeriafilms and Nairaland are just painting the picture that is not. I dont know if these guys were paid to do what they are doing but I would like to say it's good to say what you think of a person but what am saying is put some sense into it. No offense.

Am sure he's not even reading all ur comments, he's probably with his wife in Dubai for their honeymoon.

It's not like am covering anything for anyone but the fact that i was at the event and i saw all the glamorous things that went down, i couldn't help but wish i were in his shoes.

Sure, he most have his wrong-deeds, that's why we are all human. But i dont u need to use this medium get to him... it's just not the right medium.

You are jobless, what is your business, what makes you think that this is the best wedding of the year, because you were there or because he is your friend, you attending the wedding and so what, what will you say to the Adenuga's wedding then? They are saying that it is the Cartoon Wedding of the Millenium, that is all no one is saying anything bad, and for the trouser, can't you see or are you blind, the trouser is swollen, Doctors have to check him, that is all. So get it clear except you are been paid to explain or highlight what happened at the wedding, no-one here want to know.

Get back at work pls.

Basket mouth is my bros. That aside. This guy is highly talented. I think dat should be our area of concentration. many of us will like to share his fame and popularity and it has gone to Elsie. Nigerians should learn how to appreciate good things so they can prosper. We all have ugly past. Most of us still have ugly secrets too. Basket M and Elsie are humans like us. So lets cut the criticisms.

Be civilised
miz london | 11/17/2010 7:00:25 PM
We Nigerians are so backwards, We really have a long way to get civilised, I believe he just got married and should be congratulated. Whatever he has done wrong or the bride has, is no body's business! No one is perfect and everyone has one flaw or the other in us individually, it is just because they are in the public eyes that we can all see the flaws and pin-point them.
Even if the wedding was manipulated, it's no body's business, why is he treated like a felon? and she like an ass? whatever they did wrong is all in their past and everyone has gotten one.
In otherwords we should respect oneanother and learn how to wish people well, and not always scold them.

the girls saying these hateful words they were used and dumped by bright I am sure but plz take heart n move on lol.
to the person stressing abt the bulge in the trouser thats ridiculous I mean I had to go and take a close look at the pics and I must say I see nothing abnormal about it I mean when I look at a pic its the faces I look at , why will someone be looking there in the first place.
to the person saying it is a local wedding or not tush thats wierd I see it as a very ok wedding.
this is to all the guys out there please dont use and dump girls anyhow and expect to be happy when you finally settle down cos def u will and some gurls can go to any be wise.if u know u just wanna have fun let the girl know from the begining and if she is ok with it ride on.peace
