Nollywood icons Ajoke Silva, Ego Boyo and sister of bride-to-be, Doreen Ene who have enjoyed long-lasting marriages dropped words of wisdom for Rita. Joke gave a heartfelt speech that included a Yoruba proverb which translates ‘Who has taken their time before taking a step will not make a mistake.’

Doreen Ene advised the bride-to-be to keep good communication with her spouse and said ‘you must continue to have fun and smile with your husband.’

The pre-wedding party was filled with several emotional moments. One of such moments was when Actress Kate Henshaw, joined by all the ladies, sang Dionne Warwick’s “That’s what friends are for”, moving Rita to tears of joy. In her own speech, Rita stated that so many of her friends, many who were not there, had showered her with so much love already. Rita told her friends ‘I am honestly overwhelmed by the amount of love you all have shown me by being here today, your presence and warm words have made my heart melt like butter tonight. I will hold on to your words dearly as I go into this new phase.’
