The Cole family of Victoria Island have issued a disclaimer after their son, Taiwo Olakitan Cole’s traditional wedding with Nollywood actress and comedian, Wofai Ewu, popularly known as Wofai Fada, surfaced on social media.

The comedian had announced her engagement to Taiwo on her Instagram page on Saturday, May 4, 2024, in loved-up photos of herself and her heartthrob.

Woafi in her post without any caption, flaunted a ring worn on the fourth finger of her left hand, unmistakably indicating that a formal wedding was in the offing.

Moments after, videos from the couple’s traditional wedding held in Wofai’s village in Ugep, Cross River State, made the rounds on social media.
