Of the five Ikeji sisters of Nigeira, Linda Ikeji the popular blogger who has diversified her operation into visual content production might be the easily identifiable. The supposedly highest paid blogger in the country has her fame crossing the border to other West African states.
But her sister’s marriage to Arinze January 11 has attracted global attention for its opulence. Even before Sandra Ikeji became a wife, she had expressed the desire to become the lady with the longest bridal train and true to form, her 200 bridesmaids is being hailed as the longest train of maids notching a Guinness World Record.
Having had her traditional marriage at her Nkwerre hometown in Imo state, the CEO of Blackdove Models, a modeling agency together with her hubby scaled things up for their white or church wedding.
Making sure her fans were updated with proceedings, she released photos and videos of the glam affair Landmard Event centre setting social media ablaze.
Ikeji, who is said to be into event planning spared no expense to make her marriage memorable and the talk of town. Tina Ackles from the USA is said to have held the title since 2015 but Ikeji with 32 more ladies toppled her.
Sandra Ikeji had filed an application on the Guinness Record website for most bridesmaids record.
“@landmark_centre is about to be part of history in 2 days..200 bridesmaids at #thesbond wedding, It’s Just an attempt, wish me luck guys..,” she wrote.
It’s unclear if she paid the maids to help her achieve the feat or they volunteered as friends but surely it’s a feat worth celebrating.
