Fuji musician Wasiu Alabi Pasuma on Thursday gave out his daughter Barakat in marriage to Nurudeen Olajuwon.
The three-legged programme, which included a Nikkah ceremony, engagement and reception, took place in Lagos.
According to Pasuma, “letting go of your daughter is not a simple act but this is an inevitable part that cannot be dodged no matter how badly you want to.”
The musician who got emotional at some point of the ceremony penned down this for his daughter:
“The beauty and challenge of parenthood is that as tightly as you would like to hold on to your precious one, you continually need to let go”. I now truly understand that there is nothing like seeing your tiny tod all grown up and dressed in the bridal attire for her Big Day. I must tell you, there is no such sacred bond like father and daughter. Today has been such a roller- coaster ride of emotions for me, looking at my little angel dressed up as the most beautiful ‘Bride’ in her ‘Nikah Wedding Dress’. Surely, this is a momentous time in every parent’s life. Letting go of your daughter is not a simple act but this is an inevitable part that cannot be dodged no matter how badly you want to. Oyindamola and Olajuwon, I wish you both great happiness together 🙏 I believe that not only will your love last, it will be a proof to all who surround you that love is beautiful, kind and enduring ❤️ #TheOJLoveStory2021”
At the bandstand was Alhaji Wasiu Ayinde aka KWAM1.
