Award-winning filmmaker, Kemi Adetiba has shared the inspiration behind the unconventional head gear better known as gele she donned on her wedding day.
It can be recalled that the “King of Boys” filmmaker got married to the love of her life, Oscar Heman Ackah, over the weekend.
Taking to her IG page to explain the inspiration behind her gele, the 42-year-old bride disclosed that she wanted a ‘satellite dish’ head gear because she wanted to stand out at her wedding.
According to her, she wanted to make a huge statement with the gele and the stylist succeeded in achieving her desire. She added that she also wanted to be the tallest person in the room.
“First look for our magical #UndeniablyYours2022 celebration was designed and created by the amazing @hertunba. From the moment Florentina sent me the design sketch, I knew I would love the aso oke and lace dress, and she did not disappoint.
Being my first outfit of the celebration, I knew it had to be a statement in my own language. It was. And to add exclamation marks to this statement dress, I briefed @vaavavoom weeks prior that I wanted my gele to “high-five” the sky. I wanted a satellite dish!! I wanted to be the tallest person in the room because of my gele. And I wanted it to be one to remember. A real “King of Brides” crowning glory!!! Did VAVA understand the assignment? Or could the gele have been bigger?😜”
