Damilola, the son of billionaire former banker and property tycoon, Bisi Onasanya, got married last Saturday to Surat Oluwakemi Lawal, the beautiful daughter of Chief Razak Tunde Lawal and Mrs. Florence Irona Lawal in a traditional wedding ceremony that was as extravagant as it was expensive.
Bisi, the former MD of First bank, who is now the owner of The Address Homes, has shown that in or out of the banking sector, he is still a man of his people.
This much came to the fore during the wedding. He spared no expense to gift his son a befitting wedding.
Held at the prestigious Landmark Event Centre, Lagos, the banquet hall, luxurious and expansive on its own, was taken to a new level of extravagance with flower and light decorations covering up the entire space including the ceiling, walls, and pillars.
The result was a perfect fairy-tale scene.
In the midst of splendor rarely seen in this part of the country, the bells pealed, crowds cheered, the expensive flowers that ornamented the venue bloomed like it was in its habitat at winter.
And the white wedding is taking place in Dubai, the UAE next weekend.
