Are you a Yoruba Bride to be who wants to rock her engagement fabulously? Da'loom Asooke is just who you need....

By Kemi Mobuse - Monday, September 05, 2016

If you have ever come across a yoruba bride on her engagement day, or you have been privileged to be one, You have to agree with me , that; the bride is the sole centre of attraction on that day, especially when she happens to be clad in an Aso Oke from sole to crown. Such a bride will suddenly appear more regal, more beautiful and absolutely breathtaking.

Infact, I once heard that; if you are a yoruba bride, and had a  Gele on, and you aren't beautiful, then just forget it, beauty is not in your gene..Lol! Don't hate, I said I"heard" it noni.

So, before i get carried carried away, while doing one of my snooping sessions on Instagram, I happened across the page of a beautiful Lady: Da'loom Assoke and I have to hand to her, that she really knows her stuff. She had a one on one with KMB, which am delighted to share with you below...Enjoy....
