I remember the first time Kemi called me to cover her engagement and wedding ceremony in Kaduna, Nigeria. She said something about the fact that she wondered if I’d be interested in covering an event outside Lagos. Of course, I was excited and answered a straight yes. I really enjoy covering events outside the town I have come to know very well. She told me that it would be in Kaduna. I initially thought it would be a Northern affair, i.e. Hausa and probably Islamic, so I was somewhat excited about that as well — it would be a change from what I was used to. She then proceeded to tell me that it was a Christian ceremony and her groom was of Yoruba descent! Don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t disappointed about this; in fact I wondered to myself what that would look like. Also, I’ve never actually been this far north. The furthest I’ve been is Jos which was over 20 years ago. But I have to say, I really enjoyed my time up in Kaduna.
