Wife of Nigerian shipping magnate ordered to pay husbands legal charges as local Marriage not legal in UK

A Nigerian woman Mercy Ogbedo, married to business shipping magnate Moses Taiga has been ordered to pay her ex husband’s legal cost (£100,000,). She claimed she was duped into marring the billionaire because she had no prior knowledge of his former marriage in 1974 Benin, West Africa.

Mercy Ogbedo believed she married shipping magnate Moses Taiga in an elaborate ceremony in Nigeria where her feet were washed by village elders and a dowry was paid for her as a ‘bride price’.The couple married in 2002 and had twins together, but Mrs Ogbedo then spent a decade pursuing the tycoon for financial support through the British courts – only to be told she would not get a penny because their wedding ceremony was invalid.

The court heard that having more than one wife is allowed under Nigerian law, but Mrs Ogbedo applied to the British courts in 2003 to have her marriage dissolved because of her husband’s behaviour, and to force Mr Taiga to pay maintenance for their children.

The High Court ordered she should be given £300,000 a year – but Mr Taiga went to the Nigerian courts and successfully argued that their wedding was invalid, because of his church marriage in Benin.

The court ruled that Mrs Ogbedo’s was a ‘non-marriage’, which meant precisely nothing in the eyes of the law.

The High Court then ruled it could not hand over any of Mr Taiga’s fortune because he was never legally married to Mrs Ogbedo, and that she should pay most of his legal costs.

To cut the long story short, since Mr Taiga’s split with Mrs Ogbedo, he has ended his first marriage and has recently married a third wife “Yinka” with whom he has quadruplets.

RiRi is probably the queen of the red carpet this year with her strip dress. She was at the 2014 amfAR LA Inspiration Gala held at Milk Studios in Hollywood and she looked amazing. Although, we very much have a distaste for her over baring nature, however, you can’t help but admire her tenacity and soft spot for media attention.

Please, re tweet and share until the authorities apprehend the uncontrolled manager.  The dude just spoil a fine woman’s face. It makes me wonder what he could have done to other female artist.

Tribal Marks and Me.

It came to mind what it will be like to be marked for life with a Tribal Mark. It’s indeed an interesting feature to have on your face, exactly like a Versace logo on your face as you go about your daily business.  Thanks to a dorogeneration, Sparingly, we missed out on the action to be branded for life.

How interesting my African brothers and sisters will look like.

On the positive trend, you are still who you are, despite tribal mark or not. Sky is still your limit, if you are in the right environment, meeting the right people and focus oriented! And beauty, can not be covered even if you put on a hijab.
