Popular TV presenter – Agatha Amata advised her fans, while sharing a true life experience on Teju BabyFace Show some few weeks back.
According to Agatha Amata, a friend’s sibling was getting married and it was mandated among friends to buy the wedding Aso-ebi.
For the media personality, an Aso-ebi is not such a deal to her, but in this case, she was compelled to pay N84,000.00 for the beautiful material. On the day of the wedding, the TV presenter said she arrived late to the reception and had to stand because there were no seats available.
While standing for about 30 minutes, she noticed a man in babariga (Agbada) and slippers, who strolled into the party, all eyes were on him, that man happened to be the famous African riches man – Dangote!
According to her, Immediately the mother of the bride laid eyes on Dangote, she stood up from her sit at the high table, carried a chair and rushed down to meet him.
In seconds, Aliko Dangote was sitting comfortably to the amazement of guests who watched what happened with mouths wide open in surprise.
Agatha also could not hide her shock and she realized that wearing an aso-ebi did not make one a special guest and her N84,000.00 didn’t actually count as the scenario maybe.
Agatha ended the story by saying she learnt a valuable lesson on that day, “it is who you are that matters, not what you wear”.
