A Proud Nigerian Art Expert based in London, United Kingdom has expressed grave misgivings on the notorious wedding of Dangote daughter to her beau, which witnessed excess, whilst there are IDP in Nigeria.
She released the following statement:
It is sad that Bill Gates was invited to witness the profligacy and sycophancy of our country people, including those who should know better! Certain he cringed all night at the mere sight of the wedding charade!
Dangote’s laid-backness and humble demeanour should not be MISTAKEN for humility! Don’t be fooled by the seeming appearance of humility! There is nothing humble about Dangote and this masquerade of a wedding simply proves it!
I love my people and my country but nothing here is worthy of proudness. Yet people were delighted to have been invited so that they can tick their box , cv and hold on to it for name dropping opportunities…
This wedding and many of the people who attended are some of the reasons Nigeria will never be a FIRST WORLD country! Another painful and sad realization for me.
A billionaire who has “STATE CAPTURE” and MONOPOLIZED the market by manipulating & wielding political power is not a true billionaire! I could never compare him to Bill Gates or Warren Buffett nor accord him with the same respect!
Many “so called” elite Nigerians lack sophistication and finesse it makes them incredibly unattractive… So I feel pity for their spouses!
