Agbani Asenite Darego, a Nigerian model from Abonnema, Rivers state, who accomplished the daunting feat of becoming the first African to win Miss World pageant, got married on Saturday, April 8, 2017.
She got married over the weekend to Ishaya Danjuma, son of former Defense minister and business man, Theophilus (TY) Danjuma. Although there had been rumors of her upcoming wedding, the model remained silent on the issue till they both said ‘I do’.
The beauty queen/ fashion entrepreneur shared the news of her wedding on her Instagram page with the picture showing her in a wedding dress with her partner turning their backs to the camera at the wedding. She simply captioned it, “08-04-2017, #Mrs. Danjuma” The newlyweds looked stunning in their wedding attire.
Agbani’s friend, Elohor Elizabeth shared the same picture and wrote this: “Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Danjuma @agbanidarego. May the almighty God bless your union. #mysisismarried, #beautifulcouple, #Marrakesh”
From Elizabeth’s post, we can say that the wedding ceremony held in Marrakesh, Morocco.
