•Yvonne and Abounce
Betty Irabor, publisher of Genevieve Magazine recently took to her Instagram page to celebrate the couple that got wedded traditionally last Saturday.
She shared a photo of the pair with their faces split with smiles, writing, “When you look at this picture what do you see? I will tell you what I see. I don’t see two celebs, I see two happy people who genuinely love themselves enough to love each other. You cannot give what you don’t have, remember? You cannot love others without self-love.
“I see a couple who are not living their lives to please others because they don’t need to prove anything; they know that they are not in any race or competition… They got engaged without any suffocating drama, their traditional wedding yesterday was at its realest. Most of the pressures people go through are self-inflicted in an attempt to make unnecessary statements
“Who are these people everyone is trying to impress anyway? The truth is, people try too hard to be accepted, to meet other people’s expectations, to please others who really shouldn’t count…what really should count at the end of the day is the marriage, not the wedding….marriages begin where weddings end.”
Yvonne got married to late veteran actress’ son, Olakunle, popularly known as Abounce, on Saturday and the couple has sealed the union with a court wedding.
