Nige.rian man makes Prince Williams wedding list and it is not who you think !

Did you make the Royal Wedding Guest list? Perhaps not

 

Buckingham Palace released on Saturday an edited guest list for Prince William's marriage to Kate Middleton. Ok... perhaps you did not make this list.  Many like the fact that this royal wedding is no Oscars red carpet although there will be a few famous names ... and that many ordinary people we do not recognise will be there. Still, perhaps you should not hold your breath for an invitation if you do not have one now.

For example Nigerians had never heard of Seyi Obakin, the only Nigerian on the Prince William’s Royal Wedding official guest list released at the weekend by St James’s Palace. Obakin, a chartered accountant and Chief Executive, Centrepoint, a charity organisation in London was listed alongside David Bekham, Sir Elton John, among others on the merit section of the guest list. He is one of the three Africans invited for the wedding and the only non African monarch after the Crown Prince of Morocco and King of Swazi in the list. The royal wedding cake will also be donated to Obakin’s Centrepoint.
I am however more concerned about another Royal Wedding and this post is a third part in a series on lessons for the Church as we observe preparations of royalty for marriages. You may want to read  Part I; Royal Weddings in the Bible. The Good, almost Bad and the Ugly and Part II; Royal Wedding Gifts, Charities and about sending Donations to Rob Bell.

 

LAGOS — Seyi Obakin  the only Nigerian on the Prince William’s Royal Wedding official guest list released at the weekend by St James’s Palace will receive the Royal Wedding Cake on behalf of Centrepoint.

Obakin, a chartered accountant and Chief Executive, Centrepoint, a charity organisation in London was listed alongside David Bekham, Sir Elton John, among others on the merit section of the guest list. He is one of the three Africans invited for the wedding and the only non African monarch after the Crown Prince of Morocco and King of Swazi in the list.
Prince William is a patron of Obakin’s Centrepoint and has met many of the young people supported by Centrepoint over the years
Obakin joined Centrepoint as Finance Director in 2003 and was promoted to Chief Operating Officer in 2006. He became Acting Chief Executive in May 2008 and was appointed to that role permanently in January 2009. The royal wedding cake will be donated to Obakin’s Centrepoint

What makes this wedding so special? Theirs is a waste of  taxpayers money on one individual, I respect royalty but I don't see any difference in being invited to royal wedding and other weddings. It is normal to be invited to any wedding, nothing special.

Nothing special in being invited to a wedding ceremony, we attend several weddings weekly in and out of Nigeria. Not even the wedding of the vagabonds, money consuming, tax evading and eccentric jobless british royal nonsense.

When my son weds next year I will forbid any Briton from attending.

How does it rob off on us as a Nigerian pay homage for colonizing us or what? Give me a brake its a marriage like any other why making a big deal of it. His father did and where does it end up I see nothing out of it than for marketing and money~~~~~~~~~~~~!!!
