Nigerians blast Folorunso Alakija for staging lavish wedding for son

On Sunday, June 11, reported the lavish wedding of Nigeria's richest woman, Folorunsho Alakija's son, Folarin, who just got married to the love of his life, Nazanin in the UK.

Later, it was reported that different dignitaries from Africa's Richest man, Aliko Dangote, Senator Florence Ita Giwa, and Toyin Saraki were present at the extravagant wedding.

It was a wedding to remember and is said to have cost up to $6.3m (N131m) and some Nigerians are far from happy for the couple.

Comments on Facebook spoke of how the money could have been invested in Nigeria and used to reduce poverty. One man named Kunz Tamuno said on Facebook: "I don't approve of him spending so lavishly when his compatriots are dying of starvation."

"I know he doesn't owe anything to anybody. He is not obliged to give to the poor but doing so is the only sensible thing to do."
