It was a great day as Kraks Media CEO, Femi Bakre wed his heartthrob Mariam Okunola in their traditional ceremony which held yesterday.
Mariam is a Instagram comedian who does skits and short pieces which is right up the alley of her new husband, Femi Bakre (oh, and if you’re looking at the surname and wondering why it looks familiar, yes, he’s Tobi Bakre of Big Brother Fame’s brother) who set up Kraks Media with Adeyeri Michael.
Mariam took to Instagram to gush about her new husband, claiming that she was lucky to find him.
She said: “‘I don’t know how to do many things oo but I know how to pray, ah I can pray!!!!! And I can cry on God’s neck. And ever since I knew what a relationship between a man and woman is supposed to be, I’ve been praying for the kind of man I want, I’ve been praying for this day and the Almighty answered!
See the rest of her post below….
I asked for a man that Adores you and fears you Almighty Allah, because if he loves You, he will love your creature (me). Almighty Allah, you said ‘say no more’ and you answered that prayer with a perfect gift! You have given me the actual FLESH OF MY FLESH! And I can’t thank you enough! You gave me a friend, a brother, a partner and a Zaddy! Almighty you gave me my Guy!Ah I’m grateful.
Thank you God for this relationship you personally orchestrated, this one is for You Almighty Allah, help us lead the way. Alhamdullilah Rabil Alameen. May this post skip every evil eye!!!!! Amin Ya Allah.
If I were to chose, I would have loved to have my wedding on the days where there was no social media, because I’m so private to the point where I honestly don’t know certain things about my self but we have made lifetime friends via this platform and it’s only right that we do right by them by sharing our happy moments with them because that’s what friends do.
We originally wanted to have our wedding during the month of Ramadan on a Monday on the Island with just our parents and 3 friends each, because we believe that being private cuts away as much negativity as possible and I also believe that evil eye is real (call me old school dun care)
Lol but that was a battle we couldn’t win, what would happen to all the aunties that used to send me money when I was broke?
The neighbor that had to baby sit me and change my diaper when my mum was not home, My favorite cousins that used to help me eat my Eba when I was young so that I would not get into trouble for not finishing my food? The friends that we read for exams together and I passed because of them ? The friends that helped me submit assignment when I couldn’t go to class for one reason or the other? The aunties that always give me their baff ups so I could slay at events? The aunties that used to take me to birthday parties when I was young? The aunty that bought me my first body spray and diary?
How were they supposed to miss my big day? It took a long time for me to accept that they were supposed to share this joyous day with usbut by the time I did, it was already too late for me to properly plan a wedding, so we started doing wuru wuru.
Initially I wanted every vendor to be a family member or a friend or at least someone I knew but I had to mix old and new all together .
Now let’s start with @tmtbylayinka I called her last week at about 9 pm to book a slot, when she said she would be available I screamed for joy, fast forward to today, she kept to time! And she was too pleasant, I had a surprise in the middle of the make up and used tears to almost scatter the whole thing but she was just there smiling, like as if she was already expecting it”
As for Femi, he also had a couple of words to say on his Instagram, stating: “Alhamdulillah rabbil alamin, I am pleased to introduce you to the latest couple in town, Mr & Mrs Femi Bakre ?
“Words aren’t enough to express how grateful we are for the love shown to us today. We are beyond blessed to have you celebrate and be a part of our special day.
“This is the first day of the rest of our lives, and we pray that we are able to celebrate many more achievements and milestones with you. Thanks and God bless ❤️“
