Mark Zuckerberg married longtime girlfriend Priscilla Chan on Saturday, a day after taking Facebook public. The wedding was reportedly a surprise to most of the 100 guests, who were told they were going to a surprise graduation party for Chan; she graduated from medical school at the University of California, San Francisco last week. The couple, who have been dating for nine years, were college sweethearts at Harvard.
True to form, the celebration was low key. The wedding was in the backyard of Zuckerberg’s Palo Alto home. Food came from their favorite local restaurants, People reports.
Zuckerberg didn’t wear a hoodie, but didn’t wear a tux either. Also true to form, Zuckerberg, 28 and Chan, 27, announced their new status by updating their Facebook pages. Click here for full story
While this blogger wishes the real Mr. and Mrs Zuckenberg to have a wonderful and blissful life as husband and wife, the real talk here is about the Nigerian version of Mr. and Mrs Zuckenberg.
God forbid bad thing, see the suit and the wedding gown, if Mark was a Nigerian, would anybody call this a wedding?
If Mark was an omo-Naija, he would have painted Nigeria blue with his wedding. The whole of Nigeria would be on standby the day that its 28-year old millionaire is walking down the isle.
First is that every living relative of Priscilla Chan would be flown into Nigeria from China. I mean, every living relative, and the whole of Sheraton Hotel in Abuja would be completely booked for the wedding.
The Nigerian Ambassador to China would have arrived in Nigeria 1-week earlier to organize with the peeps from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism on how to benefit from the influx of the chincos.
There would be a very big wedding. The Abuja stadium is the only place that would be able to contain guests, and 1-million dollars would have to go on drinks alone, not even mentioning “other things”. 3-days to the wedding, various cows will be slaugthered as preparation is getting in full gear. Mark’s aides would have approached the big-bosses of the road-safety and the Nigerian police for a load of about 500-officers. They would ensure security and traffic control of about 5,000 officially invited guests.
Aso-Ebi for Mark and Priscilla would be running to like NGN50,000.00 (fifty thousand nairan only)
It might be either Beyonce or Rihanna that would be flown in for an opening number – with the performance fees running into several millions.
Commencing at the Ecummenical center, and then to the stadium for reception, 24-hours is not enough for this wedding. The wedding would be fully covered by the press, and maybe NTA would have won the coverage rights.
President Goodluck Jonathan and his wife Patience Jonathan would be definitely be there to shake hands with Mark and to make a speech about how intelligent Nigerians were, how God has blessed us with so many resources. If all our state governors aren’t their, they will be duly represented.
Facebook.com would have gone down that day due to neglect as all FB-staffs would be at the party, a major requirement for promotion by their big-oga, Mark.
