Beat FM presenter, Abdul Kadima Sserunjogi of the show “Gigenze Gitya?” has been introduced by fiancée, Sumayiya aka Shentie Joe Omukowu in a traditional wedding ceremony. The lovely ceremony took place yesterday, September 25 at the home of Sumayiya’s parents.
This has taken place two months after their Kukyala in July this year where Sserunjogi visited his in-laws to formally declare his marriage intentions.
In the photos displayed on Facebook, Sserunjogi was smartly dressed in the Buganda traditional Kanzu and he paired it with a velvet maroon waistcoat and a sky blue coat which had maroon collars.
His joyful fiancée, Sumayiya first came out to meet her in-laws in a sky blue Gomesi with furs and tied her outfit with a dark blue sash. To add a touch of class to her hairstyle, the bride accessorized with dark blue fascinator.
It seems sky blue was among the theme colours as the gifts Sserunjogi brought for his bride were uniquely wrapped in light blue wrapping papers.
Sumayiya later changed to silver shiny Gomesi and she then tied her outfit with a black shiny sash. Her accessories of the headband, earrings and bracelet also were a mixture of black and silver.
For the cake cutting ceremony, the bride wore a body hanging black evening dress with silver glitters. Her accessories of earrings, a bracelet and watch were also of silver.
What was evident in the photos was the couple’s excitement for their big day which could be seen through their energetic dance moves and being all smiles throughout the day.
The radio presenter also showered and filled his in-law’s compound with many lavish gifts.
The traditional wedding ceremony was attended by Sserunjogi’s workmates from Beat FM and celebrities like Pastor Wilson Bugembe of Worship House Ministries, Mesearch Ssemakula, a Ugandan musician, Amooti mubalanguzi, a musician and comedian, among others.
Sserunjogi presents the evening drive show on Beat FM. For the years, He has been able to build a fan base of ladies who like his voice, the way he presents the show and his looks.
When the news of his Introduction ceremony spread on Facebook, while some people were showering him with congratulations, some ladies couldn’t hide their disappointment of their celebrity crush being off the shelf.
On Facebook one user wrote, “I am jealousy, everything is taken from me. My crush is also taken, any way congratulations.”
Another added, “I can’t stop crying because I had a crush on you kadima mwana gwe and I was soon applying my application to get married to you.”
“Cong’s Kadima though you broke my heart bcz I had much faith in u that one day, one time it will be but that won’t stop me from crushing on you, ” a disappointed lady wrote.
“You don’t know how many hearts you have broken including for my sister & 8k others,” a lady sighed.
“Whether you introduce him, dance like there is tomorrow. We are in the corner waiting for him, struggle continues we shall not give up. Feeling disappointed with 100 others,” another added.
Words reaching our desk is that the couple will soon further formalise their Nikkah ceremony at a yet to be disclosed venue.
