The wedding of the daughter of the richest men in Africa, Alhaji Aliko Dangote shook the month of March.
it was reported that the wedding was done in Kano, Abuja and Lagos. It also had in attendance the second richest man in the world Bill Gate.
Judging by the magnitude of guests that attended Fatima Dangote’s wedding, many Nigerians have been calculating how much went down the drain to give the daughter of a billionaire a befitting wedding.
Many people believed that all the entertainers and vendors that worked together for the success of Fatima’s wedding went laughing all the way to the bank after the event.
In reaction to a post by an Instagram user @iamkay_dee, ace comedian Ali Baba, has come out to clarify what most people do not know via his Instagram page. He said he did not charge any money to perform at the wedding. He noted that Dangote might not spent as much as many thought he did as many of his friends will rally round to support him.

Ali Baba explained further in an interview that: “Dangote is my friend and I chose to play a part in the wedding ceremony of his daughter for free. I have done a lot of events for him such as dinners, luncheons, award ceremonies, among other events and I was nicely paid.
He added that: “If (former President Olusegun) Obasanjo, calls me for an event, I would handle the event for free because of my relationship with him. If he then offers me anything out of the abundance of his heart, I would take it. I don’t see why anybody should raise eyebrows over my decision. Other comedians were there and they did well.”
