Guess what’s more interesting? The duo actually married in a lavish beach wedding which held at Jumeirah Beach Hotel, the same location of Atiku’s stepson’s wedding five years after the celebrated Nigerian singer and his sweetheart.

D’banj, Faze, Tony Tetuila and Sound Sultan were among the groomsmen while 2Baba’s childhood friend Larry Gaga was the best man.
