That Banky W and Adesua Etomi’s wedding has broken the internet (we are now working with the pieces) is unarguable and that their wedding is the royal wedding of the entertainment industry is also not up for debate. Just like their introduction some months back, the couple did not announce their traditional wedding but took the public by surprise as photos from the event began to surface.

The buzz is real and Nigeria, including some parts of Africa have caught the #BAAD2017 buzz. The fact that this wedding is coming shortly after Banky W shared the touching story about his cancer surgery just warms our hearts. We have curated some of the best moments from the event.

The hashtag  for the wedding series, #BAAD2017 (BAnky, ADesua)which was first used at the introduction is so catchy, it sticks! The decor, the cake and the couple’s outfits looked so good, everything is BAD (BAAD) in a good way!

How sinfully BAAD is the doughnut wall?

Lagos is known for its luxuriousness, fast paced life and uber style. In this city, wedding guests turn up for real and they take fashion very seriously. This wedding wasn’t any different with the many stylish guests who showed up to celebrate the couple… From the images seen so far, here are a few of the guests who stood out with their style.

Aside from the couple, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu and his unique agbada were the most talked about in the BAAD wedding. Designer of the ensemble, Ugo Monye is probably already inundated with requests as we write this
Tope Abiola, creative director of Tope FnR
Former Most Beautiful Girl in Nigeria, Omowunmi Akinifesi looked absolutely regal
The Bride’s BFF, Linda Ejiofor is all shades of lovely
