The Big Wedding experience: God chose capital FM to turn our dream into a reality #TheBigW2017

By Cathy Amanya
It’s a moment I will never forget! Every day, I reminisce the magical moments of that date.
It was that moment that I always dreamt of, walking down the aisle with the man of my dreams Gordon Amanya; the only one who ever stole my heart.
A year after Gordon and l had lost our first born there was a brief separation but the love we had for each other surpassed everything, so we made up.
Gordon heard the big wedding promo on capital FM and he applied, followed all procedures and through voting by capital FM fans, we made it to the top twenty , then to the top ten and finally to the top five. That was the peak of the competition. We started soliciting for votes from workmates, family and friends and well-wishers. It came to a point where we would approach strangers, and request them to vote for us.
We bought airtime of all networks, our well-wishers influenced other people and even bought for them airtime, our bosses campaigned. We used almost all avenues to ensure we won the big wedding because indeed there was no way we would have one since Gordon didn’t have enough money yet he wanted to give me the best wedding. We could not cohabit because I come from a staunch Christian family and there was no way my parents would ever allow that.
Gordon told me how he prayed and fasted to have that happen.
On the D- day, I was in Nakasongola in my room half dead wondering what would befall us if we lost. At 9.00am, l should have been at office but l was too nervous to make it but good enough my supervisor knew what l was going through. I went about my room glancing at my phone every second, listening to capital FM and behold after many minutes of waiting, my phone rung, it was Marcus and Jackie. At the time, tears were flowing, my heart pumping like never before.
The big announcement was made. The big miracle happened- “Jesus turned water into wine”- it’s the best way l can explain it. The votes were authentically counted, and it was Gordon and Cathy leading!
I screamed and everyone in the neighborhood ran to me as if to rescue me but they found a teary happy woman with no explanation to give them such miracles are hard to explain. We always say God chose capital FM to turn our dream into a reality. The wedding had to happen within one week with everything from the dressing, salon, transport, reception etc to be catered for by Capital FM and its partners. Therefore our simple duty was, to choose and agree with the church of our choice and appear for the day.
To cut the long story short, time for the wedding reached. We had mobilized relatives and friends. Everyone was excited. The entire entourage was picked very early in the morning by Jackie Lumbasi and other capital FM staff for salon where a team of stylists was waiting for us. They did their work perfectly and we looked angelic!
A few hours later, we left the salon and entered the bridal cars. It was our first time to sit in a limousine. Sincerely, the whole look was heavenly. We smiled from ear to ear all the time as they cruised us around town in a rare motorcade. Miracles happen indeed. It seemed unbelievable. Later, we arrived at All Saints Church where we found our parents, relatives, friends, and clergy waiting for us. After a wonderful sermon, we exchanged our vows, a moment everyone had waited for. We then moved out and traversed serene places for videography and photography. We were over joyed. Time for the ceremony reached and we proceeded to Seven Hills in Kololo ( the reception venue). I could not believe my eyes, when l got out of the car. In my life I have not seen that kind of decoration and arrangement. The word BIG made sense on that day, because the scene was perfectly beautiful.
We danced through the welcome music as everyone else joined, sat in our well decorated chairs. Gagamel group and other outstanding artistes entertained us. Our guests were treated to a sumptuous dinner, speeches were made and they never seemed to end. Later, we received a land title from Zion Estates, a honey moon package and ticket to Nairobi. We danced the night away and later went to our hotel Le Petit Village!
Whoever attended that party has never forgotten what happened. The memory of the big wedding is a glue that keeps Gordon and l together through the highs and the lows of marriage. We are blessed with two girls- Shantelle and Melissa and doing many more things together. Indeed, only death shall do us part. We shall never disappoint God and the loyal fans of capital FM. Long live the Big wedding, long live capital FM. We had the best wedding at Zero cost. Thank you Capital FM!

Kevin Hart’s Ex has best response to those who thought she’d be furious

Kevin Hart is officially a married man again after he tied the knot with his longtime girlfriend, Eniko Parrish, a little over a week ago. But where does that leave things with his ex-wife, Torrei Hart, with whom he shares two kids and hasn’t always seen eye-to-eye?

Just fine, thank you.

The Atlanta Exes star made that clear when she posted a supportive message congratulating Hart and Parrish on their nuptials, but some fans just didn’t seem to get the hint. When Torrei left a sweet comment on a picture Hart posted of their daughter, Hendrix, on his wedding day, the vultures were trying their best to stir up drama — but Torrei made it clear, none of the Harts are having it.

Apparently, some folks don’t believe that Kevin and Torrei have moved past their differences and are actually supportive of each other. So Torrei reposted the pic with a message of her own to all the haters and drama-seekers:

Does that settle it?

Watch Torrei discuss her relationship with Kevin Hart on this throwback clip from The Xperiment, above.
