Tuesday, June 11, was one of those great days for the entertainment industry as two of their very own, actress Victoria Lebene and blogger, Eugene Osafo Nkansah tied the knot.
The two, who kept their relationship under wraps and took a lot of people by surprise managed to bring out most of the stars one can think of to the Rehab Beach Resort, La, Accra where the wedding took place.
From the movie industry, the likes of Moesha Boduong, Jackie Appiah, Efia Odo, Yvonne Nelson, Mikki Osei Berko, Salma Mumin, Nikki Samonas and Regina Van Helvert, Kisa Gbekle, Martha Ankomah, Gloria Osei Sarfo and Vicky Zugah were present.
On the music front, D Black, Sefa, Akoo Nana, Wendy Shay, Gifty Osei, Praye Tiatia, Okyeame Kwame and Bullet also showed up to support the two.
Events organiser Mimi Andani Michaels, television host Miss Nancy Adobea, Confidence Haugen, comedian DKB, Makeup Ghana CEO, Rebecca Donkor, fashion designer Abrantie the Gentleman and radio and television personality Abeiku Santana were also guests.
The groomsmen included Kwaw Kese, A Plus, Maxwell Mensah (husband of actress Nana Ama McBrown), Arnold Asamoah-Baidoo and Kojo Soboh, CEO of Emy Awards.
Eugene and Victoria’s traditional marriage took place earlier in the day and the white wedding took less than 20 minutes before everyone headed for the reception where there was a lot to eat and drink.
Even though the ceremony started later than scheduled, the beautiful decor, food, drinks and music made everyone forget how late the bride came in.
There were performances by Okyeame Kwame, Wendy Shay, Praye Tiatia among others while emcees Nathaniel Attoh and Afia Schwarzenegger gave the audience a good laugh.
Some of the guests shared their good wishes for Eugene and Victoria with Showbiz.
Actress Moesha Boduong expressed excitement about the marriage. “Eugene has been my friend for long, one of the few people who agreed to work with me when I got into the industry and he is very good at his job.
“ Victoria we all know is a colleague in the industry as well and it is really good that both of them have decided to come together, I am excited about this and I wish them the very best,” she said.
D Black also said, “These two are my friends and I am really excited to be part of this ceremony. I pray for long life and good health for them.”
Praye Tiatia had some advice for them. “Marriage is a long journey and it comes with all kinds of challenges but once the two have decided to make it work, it will and that should be it.
“You will not have it rosy all the time, it has its ups and down and anytime the down comes, they should go on their knees and pray to God, He will see them through. I wish them the best and my prayers are with them.”
