Nigerian award-winning rapper, Jude Lefani Abaga (M.I Abaga) has begun the marriage rites with the love of his life, Eniola Mafe.
The traditional marriage took place in Lagos on Thursday with members of the public getting the first view through a video posted on Instagram by M.I with a title: “I’m getting married today ♥️.”
The wedding showpiece is tagged #TheIncredibles22, apparently from MI stage name: Mr Incredible and year of the event and two as a couple.
The couple announced their engagement in April this year when they both took to social media to break the news. Then, they shared a beautiful video detailing how they met, sweet moments together, the proposal and BTS from their pre-wedding shoot.
Abaga in his post recounted how he was introduced to Eniola by Audu Maikori of Choccity back in 2020. He asked for people’s support and blessings as he embarks on the journey to tie the knot with his lover.
‘I’m a private person. But it’s time to share a little part of my joy with you. @eniolamafe and I met in Dec 2020 and straight away I knew I had found the one. I am excited to announce that we are getting married this year.. and we ask for your support and blessings as we embark on this journey together.
Thank you @deintefinejewelry for this amazing ring. To @fifehan for her support and guidance!.”
Also, Eniola on her Instagram page wrote: “Forever, in Every Lifetime. Why?!?! Because we did the work
Eniola, who holds a Master of Arts degree from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service in Washington, D.C., is the founder of New Nigeria, an organisation that was formed in the wake of the #EndSARS protests across the country.
She is also the co-founder of SecureFarmer.com, a social enterprise that develops the next generation of farmers through precision data, mechanization, and technology and the co-founder of The Women Collective, TWC.
