COUPLE OF THE MOMENT: How VP Osinbajo’s Daughter, Damilola And Bola Shagaya’s Son, Seun, Really Met


Couple of the moment, Damilola Osinbajo and Seun Bakare are set to dazzle the world when they tie the knot next March.

The engagement ceremony, which holds on 15 March, will be steeped in Yoruba tradition. This will be followed by the white wedding, which will be conducted in accordance with the Christian faith, which the couple professes to practice.

The bride, Damilola, is the first daughter of Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, Nigeria’s Vice President, and his wife, Dolapo (née Soyode), the grand daughter of Chief Obafemi Awolowo, the late sage and elder-statesman.

The groom, Seun, is the son of Hajia Bola Shagaya, the prominent billionaire oil magnate.

It was gathered from reliable sources, that contrary to speculations swirling on the social media that Seun is a new Christian convert, he has been practicing Christianity for over a decade. Having completed his primary and secondary school education in Nigeria, Seun went to the United Kingdom, where he enrolled for his A-levels and later bagged his first and second degrees.


It was reliably learnt that it was while undergoing his studies in England, that Seun was introduced to the Christian faith.

Sources disclosed that Seun and Damilola had been dating for many years. It was further revealed that, Damilola’s strong Christian faith and good characters magnetized Seun, and he fell in love with her instantly. On her own part, Damilola was reported to have fallen for Seun’s high intellect, gentile nature and dedication to hard work.

The bride’s father, Professor Osinbajo is also said to have become smitten by Seun’s great intellect and passion for excellence.
