Nigerian singer, Simi, born Simisola Ogunleye has played the role of the chief bridesmaid as her mother, Ms. Jedidiah Ogunleye remarries.
The report of the marriage had been in the news for some weeks but the wedding program came as a shock to fans of the singer who still could not believe the love affair.
Simi’s mother, Ms. Jedidiah Ogunleye had separated from her estranged husband in 1997 and has ever since remained single.
Simi’s mother also during the New Year eve shared the testimony of her engagement as she said: “I joined this church for over 20 years as a sinner. I will like to say a big thank you to Pastor Sam. My desire has always been to get married. Every Sunday, I’m always ushering couples to their seat and I love to see these couples ushered into the church because marriage is something I so much desire. Getting married has always been a particular goal I rewrite every year. My daughter Simi once told me that “mummy, this church you are going, it’s just young boys and youths that attend this church, you may never find a man of your age in that church.”
She added: “But I trusted God too much. Just this year a man walked into my life and as you can see, I am now engaged and would be getting married in January 2018.”
The singer’s mother today walked down the aisle with her man and her daughter played Chief Bridesmaid role.
