Barely four months after staging a low key engagement at her family home in Warri, Delta State, bankable female music star, Omawumi Megbele has tied the nuptial knots with her baby father, Mr. Tosin Yusuf.
The registry wedding held on Friday, January 16, 2015, attracted few of her closest friends, including Waje and Manager, Sunday Are.
Not many, including her colleagues, knew about the secretly held nuptials, untils a picture surfaced online, showing the mother of one child (Emmanuela Kamila) and her beau of many year at the Ikoyi registry, where they had gone to formalize their union.
There were speculations that the beautiful songstress that appeared on the picture might be expecting her second child for Baba Kamila as the father of her four year old daughter is fondly called.
The If You Ask Me crooner was happy to confirm the nuptials when ENCOMIUM Weekly called to congratulate her on Sunday, January 18, 2015. She, however, kept mum on the rumoured pregnancy.
Describing her feelings, the excitedly happy Omawumi said: “It’s the joy of every woman to be married to the man she loves. I’m very happy and grateful to God.”
For Omawumi and Tosin Yusuf, it all started like a Kele Kele Love. Since the talented singer parted ways with her music producer ex-boyfriend, Dr. Frabz, years ago, she has succeeded in keeping everything about her love life away from public domain. Little wonder many didn’t know much about Mr. Yusuf, one of the co-owners of Zamunda Bar in Ikoyi, Lagos, until recently.
There were reports linking the If You Ask Me crooner to different men at that time. Her pregnancy tale also sparked controversies. It all started like a rumour until it was confirmed. Omawumi welcomed her first child on Friday, June 17, 2011, around 9.00am at the Rockdale Medical Centre, Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America, all on the bill of the then mysterious man in the life of the famous singer.
The handsome dude loves Omawumi so dearly that he didn’t only accept her and the new baby, Emmanuella Kamilla, he promised to be with the talented musician in times of need, which he has been doing. Yusuf has been playing the role of a father and husband to Kamilla and Omawumi. He’s instrumental to the successes Omawumi has achieved today as an artiste.
Omawumi couldn’t do without thanking the man who transformed her entire life and career in every interview she has granted. Although, she never disclosed the person of Tosin Yusuf, all she would say was, I am grateful to daddy Kamilla for all he had done or Baba Kamilla is an understanding person, among others, until last year, when they both decided to put an end to the secret love that lasted four years.
In September 2014, Mr. Tosin Yusuf proposed to Omawumi and the good news was broken on social media by her best friend, Singer, Waje. The journey to holy matrimony between the lovers began on Saturday, September 13, 2014, when Tosin Yusuf invited few friends and family members to Omawumi’s family home in Warri, Delta State, where he formally sought her hand in marriage.
The white wedding, ENCOMIUM Weekly reliably gathered, will be held before the end of the year.
