On Sunday August 12th, Make Me Fabulous Season 2 premiered on Africa Magic Showcase, Channel 151. The first episode was the story of Adetoun and Gbenga and we had so much fun hosting them on the show. I’ve been so touched by the wonderful feedback from viewers who watched it and I hope the remaining 12 episodes would touch your hearts deeply.
Today I’d like to share some lovely photos from the set of Episode 1 and I hope it touches your heart deeply:
Love and romance are two major pillars every couple needs to make their marriage work. The women, especially need this. After courtship, after the exchange of vows, after the babies start coming, a woman still wants her husband to be romantic and show her affection in that very special way. This is what Adetoun desired when she contacted us on this blog for a chance to be on the Make Me Fabulous Show.
According to her, there was lack of communication, lack of pampering, and lack of romance in her marriage. She complained that she felt old in the relationship and her husband was more focused on their baby’s upkeep rather than her.
I was pretty sure we could do something about this situation and so we reached out to them to give them a fabulous treat. I’ll tell their story with pictures:
The Next Page Productions team arrived at their home to pick them up. It was wonderful meeting their family.
As usual, our couples always ride in style and we’re grateful to GAC Motors for this luxury ride.
We had a luxury lodging experience awaiting them at The Moorhouse, an exclusive and luxury hotel in the heart of Ikoyi, Lagos
The lovely receptionist checks them into their hotel suite.
It’s time for them to see their suite.
I love those smiles on their faces! Glad they’re having a good time.
They enjoyed a quick bite together, which of course provided the opportunity for good communication before we moved on to her next request – some pampering.
They had no idea what we had planned for them!
Our first stop was the Venivici Spa where the lovely staff gave them a warm welcome.
A full body massage is always a good way to relax those tense muscles.
Next, Adetoun got a facial treatment to make her skin glow!
It was a very refreshing time for both of them, but we had more!
A surprise shopping experience awaited them at the Vlisco Store.
Here our lovely sponsors treated them to some free Vlisco fabrics.
It was nice to see them have a good time.
We wanted Gbenga to look charming for his beautiful wife so we took him out for a nice haircut.
While Adetoun headed over to the Enthyst Place for some shopping!
She met up with celebrity stylist Chioma Okereke for some dress shopping.
Picking out the right clothes is so important for a fabulous look.
We still had more to do in transforming Adetoun’s look and our choice for a hair stylist was Ferdinand.
And he didn’t fail in transforming her hair from this….
Next was her makeup and Kelechi of BelleBedazzled did her magic.
Wow! Look at that glow on her face. Isn’t she stunning!!!
The highlight of the evening was a romantic dinner and Gbenga was patiently waiting for his wife.
He had no idea he was about to see a gorgeously transformed woman.
They sat down to enjoy a lovely dinner….
… which got emotional at some point.
I was so glad we were able to make them so happy. But I still had one more surprise for the night.
They had no idea I was waiting to see them, and they walked in pleasantly surprised!
It was so lovely meeting them.
We sat down to chat about their time on the show and their beautiful marriage.
And that was it for the night!
But we were not done yet. The next morning, we introduced something really special which they weren’t expecting. A vow renewal ceremony!
It was so heartwarming to see them reaffirm their love for each other. They pledged to strengthen their marriage and that gave us so much joy to watch.
We celebrated the glorious event with a cake and some wine
And our wonderful sponsors put even more smiles on their faces with lovely gifts!
It was wonderful having them on the show and I wish these two a lifetime of happiness together.
