“What the minister had said to me was, ‘when you unveil your bride, we’ll like you to react,’” Ajayi told Ife Ajagbe on Celeb Stopover Unscripted, according to

“I can tell you for free that it was a true reaction from my heart.”

In the video, Ajayi is seen lifting the veil slowly and gracefully. The guests begin to sense that the drama is about to unfold, and cheer for the couple.

After he lifts the veil, Ajayi’s expression was of one filled with complete awe. The action begins as he grins widely, claps his hands in a funny way, and does a little spin.

It was clearly the highlight of the wedding, one that would remain etched in the memories of all those involved.

At the start of this year, the couple had some more good news to share as they welcomed a baby boy, Modebare, into their family on Jan. 4.

It’s going to be interesting to see if his son grows up to be as charismatic as him.
