One of the world’s richest black women, Folorunsho Alakija, had the joy of seeing her son, Folarin, get married to his Iranian love, Nazanin Ghaissarifar at a lavish ceremony in London over the weekend.

And if your net worth is $2.1b, you would wish to go all out on such a special occasion, which is exactly what the Alakijas did as an estimated N2.3b was spent on the glamourous wedding ceremony.

For starters, the wedding cake alone is said to have cost only £10,000, standing at 12-feet tall and comprising eight tiers with flowers donning it.


The venue also spotted a bespoke marquee as well as bespoke marble floor which had the couple’s initials inscribed on it. That is said to have cost only £200,000 (N95m).

Then there was the surprise guest performance for the adorable couple, as Robin Thicke serenaded them and the wedding guests with some of his well-known love songs.

It took about £150,000 (N75m) to get the American R&B star to entertain guests at the wedding.

Also, hundreds of family and close friends were said to have been flown in from Nigeria and lodged in a hotel for the weekend.
