There is a standard for the Famuyibos parties; the Ekiti-born businessman and his lovely wife, Erelu Sunmbo Famuyibo, a good hostess at that, will not leave any stone unturned to have a befitting wedding for their daughter.
While the groom’s parents, Chief & Mrs. Lanre Rasaq need little or no introduction on the social scene.
