How Sanyeri Duped Fans Of Millions Of Naira Through Wedding ‘Aso Ebi’



On Sunday, December 1, 2013, popular actor, Olaniyi Afonja, better known as Sanyeri, staged a societal wedding in Lagos. The event, according to those who attended it, failed to live up to expectations based on the noise that was made about it before the d-day. The wedding was meant to be a mega event, but we learnt that it was poorly organised and it has been alleged that Sanyeri’s greed destabilised the whole arrangement previously made to make the event A-list. Before the wedding day proper, which was held at The Anchor Event Centre in Ikeja, Lagos fans of the comic actor, who intended to attend the wedding, were asked to purchase an ‘aso ebi’, which will serve as a gate pass to the occasion. It was said that fans were asked to pay the sum of N20,000 to the actor’s account for six yards of the Ankara fabrics for the wedding. However, on getting the Ankara material, it allegedly turned out to be of a low quality. That was the beginning of the ordeal of the victims of Sanyeri’s ‘alleged dubious deeds. The said fabrics is believed not to worth more than N2,500  (two thousand five hundred naira) in the market, but that the actor fraudulently duped his fans by selling it for N20,000 per six yards. Sanyeri also reportedly sold the video rights to his wedding to a marketer called Exel for the sum of N1 million. A committee was allegedly set up to see to the occasion described as ‘money making event’. Sanyeri and his wife, Awanu Omolara Jimoh, have been living together as for eight years before they officially tied the knot penultimate Sunday. They have produced two children from their relationship.
