Folarin and his Iranian bride Nazanin’s got married over the weekend and their fairytale wedding seems to be the most talked about wedding at the moment. Nazanin Jafarian Ghaissarifa married Folarin Alakija, who is the son of Africa’s wealthiest woman worth $2.1 billion. Folarin is the youngest of four sons of billionaires Modupe and Folorunsho Alakija.
The bride studied bioengineering and biomedical engineering at Manchester University – she is also has a graduate diploma in law. She is believed to have met her new husband, a widowed father, whose first wife Chena died of cancer, in London. They got engaged in Greece and had an equally lavish traditional Nigerian wedding at the Oriental Hotel in Lagos last November.
The cost of the wedding is estimated to be £5million.
