Apart from the sponsorship of their wedding, Oluwatimilehin and Temitope with the runners-up, Aaron & Mfon and Boladale and Rotimi got free DSTV decoders with one year subscription and one hundred thousand naira household gift vouchers and a wedding website. While the other top five couples-Oluwatosin and Oluwatosin, Adetola and Adewale, Chuks and Adaku, Uyi and Joseph, and Rukayat and Olumide were given one hundred thousand naira household gift vouchers and a wedding website from the sponsors as consolation prizes.
It can be recalled however, that the â€˜Dream Wedding Splashâ€™ competition was kicked off in February, where would-be couples who want to have a sponsored dream wedding were encouraged to register online free at namywedding.com website, where people, including their friends and relations would vote for them.
The top 10 among the contestants during the online voting were short listed for the final stage where some trivia questions like â€˜what was she wearing on your first dateâ€™ were asked them to test their compatibility and how well they know themselves.
