Busari captioned her Instagram post, “What a beautiful and joyous occasion it was to celebrate the Irabors. It was a gorgeous ceremony and everyone brought their fashion A game. It is Aunty Betty after all and we all know what a fashionista she is. There was so much love in the room and everyone was so happy to be there and sharing in their vow renewals.

“I love how they hold space for one another. Their easy companionship and friendship. Like @son_irabor said in her speech, they actually seem to LIKE each other. Love is important but liking the person and what they stand for is extremely important too.

“Sustaining this over 40 years is not easy but they make it look effortless. Love you both so much @bettyirabor @iraborsoni. God bless you. May you live long and prosper.”

Mr Irabor, 71, and Mrs Irabor, 66, have two children.
