Moving back to nostalgic memories when debonair businessman, Jameel Adetokunbo Disu, far away in Monaco asked Belinda Ajoke Adenuga to marry him, friends, families, and associates of this couple would regale you with tales of a fairy love story.
Bella as she is fondly called, wearing her usual endearing smile agreed to be Jameel’s life partner and with that, they began a nuptial journey that will today be celebrated and also cite an example for intending couples. As the couple celebrated their 11th wedding anniversary a few weeks ago, you will think they both worshipped in the temple of Venus, the ancient Roman goddess of love. They have often professed undying love for each other with words of affirmation. They would forever cherish that moment their path crossed each other as they both have witnessed uncommon favour from God in all ramifications.
For Jameel and Belinda, the success of their union can be linked not only to endless love but dedication, loyalty, humility, respect, and togetherness. Their union has been structured with these foundations ever since they both walked down the aisle in 2010 at an epoch-making nuptial ceremony where they display grand opulence and allure.
Before their wedding on April 24, 2010, the couple formally began their journey towards nuptials with an introduction ceremony on April 5, 2010. Their traditional engagement also took place at the British International School grounds in Lekki, Lagos, on April 10, 2010. At an alluring well-decorated hall with pink flowers and swaths, the couple were both fitted in gold native Iro Buba and Agbada respectively. After the engagement ceremony, they enjoyed a musical rendition from juju legends King Sunny Ade and Sir Shina Peters. In a build-up to their white wedding, they organized a pre-wedding dinner for close friends and associates with musical performances from Banky W, Chidinma, 9ice, PSquare, and then various unique acts from the diaspora.
On the day of their white wedding at the Cathedral of Christ Church, CMS, Lagos, Bella looked ravishing in her exquisite expensive wedding gown, encrusted neckline, lace inserts, rosette hip details, corseted bodice, and full skirt. Bella’s dress was perfectly accessorized by her upswept hair with a diamond & pearl hairpiece, earrings, and bracelets. While she was being walked down the aisle by her billionaire father, Chief Mike Adenuga Jnr, she was the cynosure of all eyes as her elegant poise and graceful gait matches royalty.
Jameel also decked in a modern blue suit paired with a white shirt, white tie and an elegant boutonniere also dazzled with joy on his face. In the front of the congregation, they were both joined together as they exchanged nuptial vows to stay with each other despite any turbulence they encountered in their nuptial sojourn.
To date, detractors who wonder how the couple have been able to keep loving and building a home after 11 years, have been left to have a rethink. Sources averred that “Bella does not joke with her family. One thing she learned from her father. No matter how huge the work on her table is, when it’s time for family, she abandons it to attend to her family. More reason her marriage is waxing stronger and lasted till this moment. Most of her peers would have raised shoulders for their husband but Bella is different. She is loyal, respectful, and down-to-earth.
She was well raised with discipline. If you are waiting for a crack in her marriage, I am afraid you will wait till Jesus comes.”
