Ace Nigerian comedian, Bright Okpocha alias Basketmouth over the weekend married his sweetheart of 7 years, Elsie Uzoma in glamorous style in Lagos, Nigeria. The elegant wedding saw in attendance Basketmouth’s colleagues including his mentor Ali Baba along with comedians Bovi, Julius Agwu, Tee A, Teju Babyface and several of Nigeria’s elite. It was an absolutely wonderful day for a great couple.
Basketmouth and Elsie performed their traditional wedding rites and court wedding a few days before their big white wedding. The bride took everyone’s breath away as she walked down the aisle in an elegant white strapless ballgown wedding dress by Pronovias. Her hair was swept up and accessorized with a bedazzled petal hairpiece which was accentuated by her diamond drop earrings and bracelets. Her face was covered with a delicate chapel length veil and her feet adored with embellished white platforms. Her bridesmaids were dressed in pink and silver – two of the wedding theme colours. The groom was in a bespoke three piece long-tail suit by Saville Tailors and his groomsmen were in black suits. The special guest of honour (the couple’s son Jason) also wore a grey and black three piece suit.
The wedding reception was filled with so many standout elements and special moments. Highlights of the reception included Elsie’s ‘Single Ladies’ dance, Basketmouth’s watch toss, and the couple’s romantic first dance as they were serenaded by songstress, Ego.
